Bring Liked/Favorited Songs Back to the Artist Page

So I can't even begin to understand why all of the songs that we favorited with the green heart thing were removed from the Artist page, and dumped together into the "Liked Songs" playlist, but this is a really bad and inefficient idea to the point that I would highly recommend that the change being reversed.

I mean... where as with the previous UI it would take me maybe 5 seconds at the most to navigate and start listening to my favorite songs by going to my library, scrolling to whatever band/artist I'm wanting to listen to, clicking on their icon, and bam... all of the songs that I've favorited are right there. Easy and efficient.

Now with the new UI... you have to click on "Liked Songs" and scroll through the entirety (which in my case is literally thousands of songs) in order to try and find the song that you want to listen to. Its a difficult and frustrating process to the point that I typically end up scrolling up and down for several minutes trying to find the band and song, end up just giving up trying to listen to it through Spotify, and instead just pull up YouTube to listen to it there.

If this is going to be a permanent change then yeah... I'm most likely going to end up just ditching Spotify completely as yeah... the new UI has bizarrely made trying to listen to my favorite songs from my favorite bands/artists an overly tedious act of scrolling through a playlist that's over a thousand songs long.

 

Please just add our liked songs back to the section where they used to be under the Artist page.

Replying to the bot that goes by @Billy-J:
The user LokiX21 was trying to report a bug that occurred in the latest desktop release. 
The feature of "Liked Songs" was an option available on an artist's page, it was also the default list when clicking an artist under the "Artists" list. The latest desktop release has removed this function.

So your "make a suggestion" comment shows that you didn't read or understand the user's concerns. 

If it wasn't for the ability to be able to control the desktop app from my phone app, I would be agreeing with Loki and ditching Spotify. 

And your dismissive template of a response is disheartening, disappointing, and suggests that Spotify will suddenly find itself without a user base as their product becomes more unusable because it is failing to listening to the people paying for the service, and instead relying on the 'good will' of 'volunteers' like yourself to run interference.

YES! SAME
It's so frustrating. I'm a person that likes to listen to SPECIFICS SONGS (that's why I liked them) but now it's imposible without having to listen to their entire discography and it sucks.
I'm also think on leaving Spotify if this isn't resolved. Why remove that? Unnecessary

This was submitted as a "New Idea" as suggested, and can be found at the link below...

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Desktop-Put-the-Liked-Songs-back-under-each-band-s-artis...

Hopefully it won't take nearly as long to be (re)implemented since it was already an existing future of the previous desktop app's User Interface, but it will need 50 "+VOTES" by roughly the end of June and then 180 "+VOTES" by the end of September in order for it to reach "Under Consideration" status.

With that... please go to the above link and vote for it if you similarly would like to see the Liked Songs feature returned to the Artist page for the desktop app's UI.

Thanks!
