My Question or Issue

When you search by song name, many songs titled like that don't show up in the top of the result list. For example, for the search term "sed de amor", first 2 results are indeed titled "sed de amor" but the next ones has nothing to do with the search term. I believe they've added new search parameters that take into account play history and geographical location, but the result is a disaster. Here steps to reproduce:

1. Click on Search

2. Type the search term, for example "sed de amor"

3. Click on SEE ALL

4. See how the first 2 results are indeed titled "sed de amor", but then other results has nothing to do with the search term

 

Expected results:

Search priority should be first by song name, then by artist, then by album, etc. as it used to be.

 

Actual results:

New search engine is **bleep**ly giving high priority to play history and geographical location when searching songs

I downgraded to 1.1.39 and the problem persists, so it has to be something their devs **bleep** the Spotify servers.

 

I tried with Deezer, and it works normally as it used to be in Spotify a couple of weeks ago:

With Spotify, only the first 3 result entries are related to the search term.
