My Question or Issue

A chunk of song suggestions I get is in French or from French artists, which I generally hate. If I live in France, it doesn't mean I am going to like the songs from French artists / in French. I have been consistently disliking and skipping French songs on my Discover playslists, however a year into my subscription, a large proportion of the radio and Discover suggestions are still in French / from French artists. Guess it's safe to assume that song language and artist country are not a significant criterion in the algorithm? I almost start to believe that even with a Premium subscription, there is some collusion with music labels (like artist and song promotions). What is the reason your algorithm doesn't learn from my negative behavior towards French artists / songs?

Hi there!

This sounds like a good idea. I’d suggest starting a new thread in the Community Ideas Exchange.

This’ll allow users, Stars, and Moderators to vote and comment on it.
