My Question or Issue

I created a large playlist consisting of 300-400 songs. Every time I play this playlist on shuffle, the song I listen to somehow gets re-added to the playlist. It doesn’t get added as a duplicate song though, it removes the song and adds it again. I know this because every time I’m done with my listening session, if I filter the playlist by songs added most recently, I see every single song I just heard. It will say “added 1 hour ago” all the way up to “1 minute ago.” Even though I haven’t added any songs in weeks. This includes songs that were never even in the playlist in the first place. I have queued up some songs outside of the playlist which then end up being added to the playlist which I don’t want. But the BIGGEST and most annoying issue is that because the song is getting “removed” and added back to the playlist, when I listen to it on shuffle I will hear repeat songs over and over and over and over again. Sometimes the same song will play 3 times out of 5 songs. Sometimes it’ll even play back to back. This is incredibly frustrating. Please someone have an answer for me.

Same is happening to me. Although listening to other songs from other playlists also adds them to this single playlist. This is hugely problematic as I can't listen to music without ruining my playlist. HELP ME!!!

Hey @collinmccann, help's arrived. 


That sounds odd. Let's try a couple of things:

  • Reinstall the app
  • Remove your offline devices from your account page (you need to re-download your offline music if you have any)
  • Try doing the same thing from the Web Player

After that, let us know how it goes, and give us a more specific example of what's going on. Does it happen only when having Shuffle on? Does it happen with other playlists? 


Keep us posted 🙂


Tested on my phone and this didn't happen.

Resinstalled the App and seems to be working in now.

Looks like this is a desktop glitch and works be reinstalling the app.
