Why are Spotify Artists Not in Alphabetical Order

This article will discuss why Spotify artists are not in alphabetical order. It's confusing, but Spotify has made no effort to make it any easier to find music by artists you like.

First, let's look at what Spotify did. All of their Spotify Artists represent a genre or theme. When you search for an artist, you may see a series of bands in alphabetical order.

I took this photo during the show of while she sleeps, I wanted the public in the aperture and the scene a little blurred to give the feeling the public is important.

Sometimes they do the same for individual albums. While that's fine, what Spotify does wrong is when you search an album, you may not simultaneously see individual songs.

When I search Shlohmo's Lord/Slime, I see many different songs. These aren't in alphabetical order, and none of the songs have them in order, so the best way to find one of my favorite songs is to go to the first song in the search results and type in the title.

I have yet to see any other musician have albums mixed up like this. It's not to say other artists don't have the same problem, but it is a red flag for any user who is a fan of multiple artists.

This doesn't take away from any other artists, as I have different favorites. In the end, I look for songs by artists rather than looking for songs by their titles.

Don't get me wrong, I've searched artists by bands, albums, and artists and have yet to find an album mixed up. This is only a red flag for Spotify users who search for albums by specific bands.

I hope Spotify goes back to only doing the same when you search albums. This would be a good thing for Spotify users and possibly increase the number of subscriptions.

Either way, I have no problem with Google Play and Apple Music, or any other digital music service. They are excellent services and have done a great job making finding music an easy task.

What are your favorite streaming services? Do you have a few favorites?
Spotify has a very peculiar list of artists on their social media. And I am not kidding when I say peculiar.

Take a look at the bands and artists on Spotify's Instagram account:

1. DJ Snake (He was featured on the 1st/2nd version of Drake's One Dance, he performed a set at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and he's one of the most-followed people on Instagram.)

2. Odesza (They have collaborated with other artists like Big Gigantic, Flume, Sigur Ros, and more.)

3. Foster the People (They have worked with pretty much everyone in recent years, especially other DJs such as Diplo and Above & Beyond, and have opened for major acts like Justin Bieber.)

4. Tycho (He's a friend of Sigur Rós, one of the biggest bands in the world.)

5. Louis the Child (They released a track with Swedish DJ Eric Prydz, and they have a close connection with Afrojack.)

6. NoMBe (He's the producer behind Kanye West's "Wolves" and Drake's "Started From The Bottom.")

7. Grace Mitchell (She's worked with Lil Uzi Vert, Justin Bieber, and other rising stars.)

8. OneRepublic (One of the biggest bands of the past decade, they also have a new album on the way.)

9. Jason Derulo (He's collaborated with many artists, such as Big Sean, Rick Ross, and others.)

10. Major Lazer (They released their second album, "Peace Is The Mission.")

11. Desiigner (He's worked with everyone, including Rick Ross, Drake, and Travis Scott.)

12. Lil Uzi Vert (He's collaborated with Miley Cyrus, Juicy J, and PartyNextDoor.)

13. Kiiara (She's worked with several artists, such as Tiesto, Pete Tong, and Anderson Paak.)

14. Schoolboy Q (He has a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Fuck You.")

15. French Montana (He's collaborated with the most prominent artists in the industry, such as Future and 2 Chainz.)

16. The Chainsmokers (They recently performed at the Grammy Awards.)

17. Zedd (He's collaborated with many significant artists, such as Sia, Miley Cyrus, Zedd, Diplo, Justin Bieber, and others.)

18. The Wombats (They have worked with many artists, such as Gorillaz, Mariah Carey, and Jamie N Commons.)

19. J Balvin (He's collaborated with Shakira, Flo Rida, and Jennifer Lopez.)

20. Juicy J (He's worked with several prominent artists, such as Snoop Dogg, T.I., Wiz Khalifa, and more.)

21. The Chainsmokers (They have been nominated for a Grammy for their hit "Closer.")

Some of these artists are ridiculously talented, and I would have ranked them higher, but I feel as if these 20 bands and artists have dominated the music scene in the past couple of years, so this list is the right one.

We also have a Spotify-style site for new bands that I created, but I am currently putting it back up.

I am also in the process of planning a future list that will be updated once a month. I'll post the link when the list is up.

I hope you enjoyed this article, and if you did, please share it with your friends!

In the meantime, I'm super excited to tell you that you can finally catch me on The Fraser Coast, where I will appear every Wednesday night at the Fraser Coast Arts Festival at the Fraser Coast Civic Centre.

I will be performing for free from 7 pm. I will also be releasing an album called "Wrong Direction." It will be coming out soon.
