Its ridiculous that such useful feature is removed while the annoying behind the lyrics is still there instead of lyrics.
We want the Appears On section back!
Stop disabling good functions that provide help to customers!
WE WANT APPEARS ON SECTION BACK!
Updated on 2020-07-15
Hey there folks,
Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your votes and comments to this idea.
We're happy to announce that the Appears On section should now be back.
Thanks, and happy listening!
"APPEARS ON" IS AN ESSENTIAL FEATURE.
RESTORE RESTORE RESTORE!!! 🤬
Perhaps we should been suggesting, everywhere, that the reason Spotify removed this feature is because it is most widely used by the hip-hop community.
Not true in the slightest. I don't even listen to hip hop yet I'm still heavily affected by the removal of said feature. Let's please not misuse or abuse the scope of a legitimate civil rights movement for personal gain.
Classical music fans are making similar statements. But you may not be aware if you're solely listening to hip hop tho. This is a huge issue for classical composers and instrumentalists.
This hurts people who listen to any genre, guys. Hip-hop, classical, electronic/EDM, literally any genre.
If someone's been featured on a compilation album, done a remix, vocal feature, etc. regardless of genre, all of that is now no longer visible to users. It sucks for users and sucks even more for artists as listeners can no longer easily view half of the work they've done.
Bring it back,
Bring it back.
Let us know when something is going to change.
-not lyrics, just a request

This is an essential feature for discovering music by vocalists and artists who frequently appear on compilations. I hope it will return soon.
So yesterday I actually created this exact idea before VladVega. No shade to them, just shade to Spotify. Spotify shadily marked my Idea as spam. I messaged them. They then changed my idea status to duplicate. Whatever. Shadesters being shady. I'm just going to post what was in my idea here because it clearly states what's wrong.
Recently, to the dismay of many devout users, the "Appears On" section was removed from the Artist page. Why? We have no idea. First, we were told it was a bug that would be fixed. Then, we were told it was intentional, with no plan on coming back.(https://community.spotify.com/t5/iOS-iPhone-iPad/Appears-On-feature-gone/m-p/4979329#M123026). The decision to remove this still hasn't fully been explained.
The necessity of this feature isn't really up for debate. @AnvilDay made some great points that I've pasted below (https://community.spotify.com/t5/iOS-iPhone-iPad/Appears-On-feature-gone/m-p/4979544/highlight/true#...
This is a critical function for browsing and discovering new music in many genres:
And what about compilations with various artists!? The "Appears On" section was the easiest/most sensical way to find these songs.
There has been a lot of rightfully earned outrage over the removal of this feature, on both this forum as well as the Spotify subreddit. (https://www.reddit.com/r/spotify/search?q=appears%20on&restrict_sr=1)
The solution is easy.
Stop removing features that aren't broken and bring this feature back. Plain and simple. The people want it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
