[iPod Classic] Artist of First Track overrides Album Artist In Albums

So I just got a new iPod Classic (moving from a 5G iPod) and noticed a little "bug". If you go into Albums, it should show the album name and below that the album artist. This does happen but only if there isn't a featured artist as the first track.

For Example, what I believe should show in Albums is this:

Watch The Throne (Album Name)
Jay-Z & Kanye West (Album Artist)

But instead, since there is a featured artist on the first track this is what is being displayed in Albums:

Watch The Throne (Album Name)
Jay-Z & Kanye West ft Frank Ocean (Album Artist)

This does not happen with the iPod Touch. Anyone else experience this on their iPod Classic?
