    Apple Music keeps on suggesting Britney Spears in the For You section, even after i asked it several times not to recommend it. I figured the reason was that my partner, who used my account before to share iTunes Match, played her a lot. Now, with Apple Music, we are forced to use separate accounts. For obvious reasons :confused:

    As I'm not a fan, I figured that resetting the play counters to zero would do the trick. But no... every couple of days, she's back!

    So, I started digging a bit deeper and noticed I have two Artists named Britney Spears in my library, one of which has nearly 200 albums and 590 songs!! These songs have nothing to do with Britney Spears, and her name is not in the metadata of those songs... So I have no idea why these songs are there.

    As you can see, even a classical CD I once bought in the iTunes Store is linked to Britney Spears?!


    Anybody any suggestions on how to De-Britney my iTunes?

    I have no suggestions, I'm really sorry, but I laughed so much at the thought of Britney Spears performing "Carmina Burana"...

    I noticed the problem does not occur on my other devices so I concluded my iTunes library is corrupt. Deleted everything and downloaded everything from iCloud. Everything's seems fine now.

    However, I can imagine that if your master library is corrupt, there's no easy fix.

    They suggest a lot of things and repeat them to be honest.

    I kept getting "Beyonce: Deep Cuts" and "Inspired by Beyonce" exc. I don't even listen to her. I'm mostly 80s bands.

    There's no shame in having a little Britney in your reminds me of a scene from Tommy Boy:
