Another case of the Release Radar weird behaviour.
I've got "RoSETTA" artist on the recommended list which I never liked or added it to my favorites:
spotify:track:5V2qMcewySybsMecXsbJZ8
But I defintely have another "Rosetta" in my favorites - which is a totally different artist with its own separate artist page
spotify:artist:0HJQZHbKgYyWCDc8uVko6S
Wondering whether Release Radar playlist compliation logic is so rudimetrary simple that it allows such dumb non-case-sensitive matches?

Though this is marked as solved I am still having this issue! Can’t believe Spotify doesn’t use artist unique ids instead of names. Last week a song in my release radar was even credited to the wrong artist with the same name (one is an alternative band with a female singer and the other is a rapper so it’s pretty easy to tell when their mixed up). Can’t find any way to report the issue without having to go through twenty help articles and chat bots first.

That's not the right MONOLOG artist.

It was absolutellly different artist when I started following it and now I'm forced to sumble and listen to smth. I would have never ever willingly listen to even in my nighmares. I've already unfollowed a good dozen of artist because of this issue! SPOTIFY - do something, please!!!

another unwanted present and hi-jacked artists from the Release Radar.

Fans of Stars Of The Lid, Discovery, Bryan John Appleby etc. artists are so pleased with this new Compilation by Moveek  appearing in their weekly release radar playlists...

Hey @Katerina,

Marking this post as a solution wasn't probably the appropriate action: 4 months after your reply, this unique id issue is still not fixed.

I'm new on the community platform however I don't see how it made the post more visible for other users since they would look into "Ongoing issues"... To have a better idea of how much the solution is asked by users, if I search for "Release Radar" topics with "Ongoing issue" tag, as of today this post would rank 22 on 95 based on the number of likes (not even sure results are all related to Release Radar but it's an other subject...)

So I understand Release Radar might not be high priority at Spotify, this issue even less, but please: it's harfmul for artists to no reach their audience and it messes up with our user experience for us who are eager to listen to our favourite artists new releases, don't add more complication by misleading us in our search for a solution.

Have a great day!
