I've seen a LOT of posts now spanning several years about the Radio function now being basically useless for finding new music - I've had the same complaint for a while now, but feel like it's reached new heights. My Radio function, no matter what playlist or what genre I listen to, defaults to the SAME FIVE SONGS, every single time, and then jumps to a completely different genre that has nothing to do with what I was listening to. On top of playing the same five songs, the algorithm has seemingly completely made up a profile for me based on songs and artists I've NEVER liked or listened to. For example: it keeps insisting that I love Taylor Swift, specifically her old country albums, and keeps putting them on all my specialized playlists and even on the "Only You" feature that just rolled out (again, have NEVER listened to these albums, and never listen to pop country.) This also happens across all my platforms, including phone, computer and iPad, all of which are up to date.
Spotify, we have been begging you to fix the radio for SO long. I know the mods can only do so much but at the very least, please do not give me the canned response about needing to diversify my music and add more songs; I've had Spotify for almost a decade, I have thousands of songs saved, playlists across every genre under the sun, and I listen to all of them frequently. There is no reason for the same five songs to play every time, and definitely no reason for inserting songs and albums into my profile and insisting that I've shown interest in them before when I never have. And we know about the live ideas thing, we've already started one for this which appears to be going nowhere. Please just give us an authentic response. This is incredibly frustrating.
