My Question or Issue

 This has happened after I listened to my "tastebreakers" playlist. Basically after i'm playing any song, after about 1 minute the track skips to another track that i haven't ever played of heard of. This also happens when I have my music paused. After about one minute, a random track that i have never listened to or saved to my library starts playing.

 

I have tried restarting the app and it does the same. It's pretty inconvenient.

This is happening to me.  I can listen to a song for about 25 seconds then it plays a random song from a genre that I am not listening to and plays that instead.  It will also start playing a random song if I leave the app (or window open).  It is happening on my Samsun Galaxy S10 as well as my PC (Windows 10 - Chrome browser).  I tried to attached a 21 second video of me listening to Band of Horses and it switches to a random song, but it says I do not have permission to upload video

 

I reinstalled on my phone.  I logged out of all accounts.  I changed my FB password and relogged in.  Please help this is very frustrating.

Try talking with spotify support to have them unlink your facebook account from your spotify account, that worked for me.

Also, see that picture of me in my profile pic? I've never seen that pic before. Is it a stock photo?
