My Question or Issue
I'm trying to play music from the band "Pendulum" but whenever i press play i get a message popup saying:
"Spotify We can't play this song until you allow this artist in the spotify phone app"
When i try playing it on my phone nothing happens at all.
I've looked around on my phone but i don't see where im supposed to "allow" this artist to be played on my phone app. Even less why i have to allow it in the first place...
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the latest version of the Spotify phone app, you should be able to fix it.
1. Search for the affected arist's page on the Spotify phone app. You will need to go to their artist page.
2. Ordinarily there should be a Follow button up the top right near the artist name, there is like a 🚫 symbol. Click on that.
3. You will need to restart the Spotify app on your desktop.
