My Question or Issue
Hi, I've been a Premium user for a few weeks and was really enjoying the service, however today I log into my account from work and my 4 year son is at home listening on the Google Home to "The Number Song" by John Paul internet kid's star. Here in the song it keeps saying F- you blah blah. I go to block this song and find from all the threads I do not have permission (but some iOS users might) to be sure a specific artist does not play. I did find how to filter out the explicit content in the account, but I really want to be able to prevent certain artists from playing in my families music feed. This is just crazy to me that we can't do this and it's the first thing that makes me think I should check one of the other services available.
Does spotify have a contract with content providers that prevents this? If not, how is it possible with so many users (and families) on here that we can only block Explicit content, but not filter out specific artists/songs for our child accounts?
Just crazy. Please correct me if I'm wrong or there is a way to do this.

Thanks for sharing about this here in the Community!
Currently the option to block an artist from being played can only be enabled on phone or tablet. In order to do so, just follow these steps:
Afterwards, songs by this artist will no longer be playable on your device and any tracks by the artist included in a playlist will automatically be skipped.
Just a heads-up, this setting is not carried over on other devices and is not available on desktop devices.
