My Question or Issue

I have a playlist that consists of all of my favorite artists, I recently added a new bands songs to the playlist. However whenever I put this playlist on shuffle it gives me every artist except the new one. Going through the queue, the new band only pops up once in the queue. I added all the songs in queue to a playlist of its own. 

There's 160 songs in the queue... only ONE of them is from the new artist.....

This is really annoying and frustrating me, this artist has almost more songs than any of the other artists, yet is being skipped almost entirely when I put this playlist on shuffle.

Spotify, you really need to fix your shuffle. I have more issues with it, but this one is the big one annoying me at the moment.

I am having the same problem! I made a playlist with like 20 or 30 Yungblud songs and there are maybe like 20 other songs total. Yungblud RARELY plays. It's very annoying.

You are in luck then.
I built an android and web app to force Spotify to play truly random songs.
