Release Radar full of spam - someone gaming the algorithm?


About half of my Release Radar is the artists I'd expect, and about half of it is songs by very similar-sounding maybe randomly generated three-word artist/song combos, screenshot included. Usually the Spotify recommendations algorithm is on point for me so this seems super weird - is anyone else seeing anything like this?

Hey @a_lyx,


Thanks for searching for the answer you need here!


We hope you don’t mind us replying now as we just stumbled upon this thread. Note that Release Radar features recommendations from new releases we think you’ll love. If the songs there are not quite for your taste, we recommend that you expand your music library by liking more songs and following more artist. This should give the algorithm a push and in a couple of week you should start seeing more of artists you'd love.


We also recommend that you have a look at the Artists section of Your Library. If you see any entries there that you don't recognize it's a good idea to secure your account using the steps here


Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.
