Same problem here! I’m Brazilian, English speaker but living in Sweden, so I would love to have access to Brazilian playlists and English speaking podcasts, but all I get is Swedish stuff!!

p.s.: I use Spotify premium, this could be at very least a premium feature...

Same for me. I'm spanish and I live in spain, but the fact that the most of spaniards love horrible music don't implies that everyone in this country like thtat kind of **bleep**... Please Spotify, stop fu**ing me with those awful lists, I hate latin music, I can't deal with those horrible rithms and is terrible to open spotify and see latin music lists everywhere... I'm even considering change my music subscription service because of that...

I've been a premium user for several years now. I used to like Spotify because it allowed me to find new music that I might like. And It really presented some music that I liked.
But in the last half year it began to offer music I would not listen even if I was paid for. Music that I consider disgusting... a torture. Like reagueton and most of latin music. 
I really like to listen english music even though I live in Argentina.
I know that weekly there are songs released that I like. But I am getting the news about it through other media. Not Spotify. So the beautiful option coming every friday presenting new music suddenly became a nightmare.

And listening to the same old music is becoming boring.

Again, I've became premium user because I wanted to pay for the music that I liked so the artists receive their share. 
But lately I AM considering stop paying. This is not what I want.

I'm Brazilian, living in Brazil, but I absolutely HATE the recommendations and browse options. I prefer English rock, indie and others. Brazilian music is VERY broad, but they seem to try and push what I consider to be trash music, such as "sertanejo" (Brazilian country), "funk" and so forth. It is mindblowing to see how poorply Spotify's algorithm works.

I have same problem. Have you (Spotify) even tried to do something about this problem? Its not very good customer service to not listen your paying customers wishes or even ignore them. Since you are now listed company, might be bad for your stock price if this kind of long-term problems spread in news.

Please fix it.

I think fastest way is to spread it to news media. When their stock price crashes because of angry customers, bad customer service and long-term problems not fixed it takes less than a minute and its fixed.

To get more momentum and audience this could be posted and polled in Reddit, if others issue similar problems.

I am Catalan and I receive awful Latin music recommendations the whole f**king time. 

 

PLEASE SPOTIFY STOP TORTURING ME WITH THESE SHITTY MUSIC!

 

I'll give a try to Apple Music instead.

Fix this spotify. We pay you money. We don't want suggestions from where we live, that's getting closer to racism. We would like to choose that like on Youtube settings.

I would like to add a +1 to the requests in this thread. 

 

It's about time recommendations under Browse and Discover could be switched by a setting and not default to the IP or the signed-up country (ads are fine btw..).

 

Especially for users who are paying for a Premium subscription, they should define their native musical taste and not be subjected to the country they are living in.
