My Issue

I follow a Korean artist named Ailee and instead of the playlist notifying about her new releases, it instead shows me the releases of a completely different artist that goes by the same name.  When I first encountered this, I was annoyed but thought it was just a temporary quirk.  Then, I encountered it a second time, and I also realized that I haven't heard a new song from the Korean Ailee in a long time.  It turns out she released a whole album this year, but I completely missed it because her releases were replaced with this other Ailee.

I have the same issue with https://open.spotify.com/artist/7v7PLqTrbbzOuDYRtmLK76?si=rAEwN9iQR9yO5R9s7cRtSg, which constantly shows up in my Release Radar even though it's nothing like anything I like.  It's obviously being confused with https://open.spotify.com/artist/0jGjbgonQdZ4fc6EmCNj4J?si=jmnAVvwiSOqFj9V6XUzy1Q.
