Did you open up your Spotify account over the weekend only to be swarmed by an abundance of Drake? Well, some users are reporting that the company is offering refunds in regards to their excessive ‘ScorpionSZN’ promotion over the last few days.
As we reported Sunday, Drake’s latest album, Scorpion, was released on Friday, and has since managed to break a number of records, including the single-day streaming record for Apple Music (with the record previously being set by Drake’s earlier release, More Life), and setting the record for the largest single-day streaming total for any record on any streaming service.
However, fans on Spotify soon took issue with the way that the plaftform promoted the record, with the artist’s face showing up on the artwork for countless playlists – including playlists that his music wasn’t even featured on.
“Spotify is being such an unprofessional company to the point of disrespecting the artists that are in those playlists,” wrote Reddit user jakebirdseye. “And when they realize that they can get paid by any famous artist for this shit to happen, it will become a recurring thing.”
“I just think it should stop now before it gets out of hand.”
However, some users have since taken to Reddit to share the news that Spotify is offering refunds to some who have complained about the excessive Drakeification of their homepage.
