This is how to block artists on Spotify

DaBaby is a furious homophobe And as someone who used to listen to her music, sometimes I still see her on my recommended music charts on Spotify. I wanted to change that.

While trying to block the individual songs that I found, I quickly realized that it was impossible. However, what’s even better is that you can completely block an artist with Spotify.

So here’s how to block artists, like DaBaby, for example, with the Android and iOS versions of Spotify:

Open Spotify

Click the ‘Search’ button

Write the name of the artist you would like to block (DaBaby)

Tap the three-dot menu button (horizontal on iPhone, vertical on Android) below the artist name

Tap ‘Don’t play with this artist’ (on iPhone) or ‘Don’t play with this’ (on Android)

These are simple steps on how to block artists on Spotify. It’s worth noting that even if you manually tap a blocked artist’s song, it won’t play, which is perfect. It’s worth noting that I noticed that all artist songs are grayed out on iOS, but this doesn’t happen on Android.

Also, if the artist is not the main name of the track, it will still play. So unfortunately, Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” with DaBaby will still play.

Either way, this is one more step in getting rid of bigoted music on my Spotify-generated music playlists.
