At some point today, would anyone be so kind as to check to see if this Apple Music bug is still present?

Much thanks.


Previous bug:
After you remove an album from your library, or even a song from a playlist, the album/playlist disappears from the “Recently Played” section in the Listen Now tab. And then, even if you listen to the album again afterwards, it won't reappear under “recently played”.​
 
Very nice! Today is a good day, LOL.
