[Desktop][Premium] Queue Interrupts Playlist, Can't Be Cleared

[Desktop][Premium] Queue Interrupts Playlist, Can't Be Cleared







(HP Pavilion 2020)

Operating System

(Windows 10)


My Question or Issue

When I start a Playlist, it plays one song and then reverts to the Queue, which has been (astoundingly) filled with a single artist whom I've only listened to once.

The Clear Queue button is gone, there is no way to access the option. So I keep having to go back to my playlist to get to the next song on it. 

I tried adding the playlist to the Queue, but then the Queue repopulates with random stuff I didn't add to it.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY MADDENING!!  Spotify should play the Playlisit I've chosen and not continually interrupt it. I've uninstalled the app, gone to the Microsoft Store and re-installed, but it hasn't fixed the issue. 

I've been a Spotify user for over 8 years now and am highly technically inclined. Both of my brothers are programmers and nothing I've done in settings or reinstalling has corrected this. As a last resort, I've disabled "Autoplay". Currently hoping that at least stops the Queue from interrupting everything I'm listening to.

Ridiculous - highly considering just getting rid of Premium and subscribing to Amazon Music.
