What is "Shortcuts" and how to remove it?

Casual Listener

Hello Community,

Could somebody please explain how can I remove the two "Shortcuts" from my Home tab? Please, see the attached screen shot.

I have in Spotify Web, Destkop App, Mobile App.

It just sits there, I don't know why and I would prefer not to have it there.

I have found no way how to remove it.

I do not know the artist, I do not follow the artist, I do not like the artist...

So why do I have a shortcut for that song on my Home tab?

Thank you.

Same thing here, except my entire front page has been hijacked for the most part. this is desktop app BTW but its the same on my phone as well. Unknown artists, obviously some kind of hacking/illegal advertising that spotify is failing to acknowledge

The only ones I have actually listened to is The Weeknd, Beyonce and Pop Remix. I checked out one of the songs to see if I recognized it but nope. And also I had sign-ins last week from Russia 2x and Indonesia once

I'm having the same problem. Somehow my account was hijacked a couple of weeks ago - I had a pretty crazy password so I'm not sure how - so I have all these weird playlists on my shortcuts and recently played now. NOTHING gets rid of them. It doesn't matter how many other albums or playlists I listen to. Super annoying >_<

Dear Community,

I have found a solution: I have returned back to Apple Music.

No, I did not because of this stupid "Shortcuts" thing.

I had other reasons too.

Good luck to you all and all the best!
