[All Platforms][Search] When searching with "genre: " search term, display albums among the results

Please make albums show up when using the search term "genre:". (e.g. if the "genre:pop" is used, makes albums with songs of the "pop" genre show up).

 

Currently, if using "year:" or "label:" or "artist:", albums do show up, but if "genre:" is among the terms used, no albums show up in the results.

 

I understand that it may be difficult to find a satisfying solution for what to do with albums where songs are of many different genres, and due to how genres are assigned to individual songs and not albums as a whole (as far as I understand). Should only it only display results from albums where "all songs fits the genre", "the majority of the songs fit the genre", or "at least one song in the album fit the genre" ? Whatever the chosen comprimise ends up being, it would be nice to get some album results when searching within a genre rather than none.
