My Question or Issue
When I search for genres with a dash in them I got erroneous results. I've included a screenshot with my username cut out that illustrates my point. I've tried the following genres:
For example, if I type in genre:"j-pop" I'll get some correct results like kana-boon and ikimonogakari, but I'll also get results that are obviously wrong like Janet Jackson or Michael Buble. If it were just a few I'd think it was just an issue with the tagging, but there are so many incorrect results that I'm pretty sure it's an issue with the search. This only happens with the genres I've listed. I searched for kawaii metal and got only correct results. I've tried searching with and without quotes, on the web player, the desktop app and my phone, and using different accounts but it makes no difference. I suspect this issue occurs with any genre with a dash in it, but it's easiest to notice when I search for an Asian genre and get a bunch of white people.
