My Question or Issue

The spotify app does not have its normal logo on my homescreen, but it has a white background with grey lines on. When i click on the app it shows a black screen with a loading icon infront then it glitches and send sme back to my homescreen. I have tried uninstalling the app, and when i hold down on the app and click x it disappears as if it has been uninstalled. However, i go to the app store and instead of it saying "download" it says "open ". When i press open nothing happens. It then reappears on my home screen. I pay for premuim and i cannot even use it?! ( Also i have it logged in on my windows laptop and it still works as normal) please help!!
