Spotify Web API: How to get genres from TrackObject in playlist

Spotify Web API: How to get genres from TrackObject in playlist

I am using the Spotify Web API through Python. I am currently extracting tracks from a playlist. With that in mind, I also wanted to get the genres for each song.

 

My first question is if there's a way to a genre for a specific song? At the moment, I don't think there is but I could be mistaken.


Assuming there wasn't, I tried to get the genres for a song by keying in to each track. However, I noticed that there is no genre's key for any of the songs. I am using the the Top 100 songs, so I'd assume that these songs would have a genre. 

Here's what the 'artist' key returns for a given artist in a given song:

 

 [{'external_urls': {'spotify': 'https://open.spotify.com/artist/2LIk90788K0zvyj2JJVwkJ'}, 'href': 'https://api.spotify.com/v1/artists/2LIk90788K0zvyj2JJVwkJ', 'id': '2LIk90788K0zvyj2JJVwkJ', 'name': 'Jack Harlow', 'type': 'artist', 'uri': 'spotify:artist:2LIk90788K0zvyj2JJVwkJ'}]

This is the documentation I was looking at:
