Some of the artist names in my music application has this totally weird font as seen in this screenshot with. The song plays and it works, but why is the artist labeled like that?

Anyone? I know it’s strange, but has it happened to anyone else yet?

For whatever reason the music app isn't recognizing the è in the artists name.

A tilde is a classic utf8 vs utf16 conversion issue. Did it come like that from Apple Music or is this your own file?

When I bought my iPhone 8 Plus, I transferred my music library from my old iPhone 6 to my new phone using a software called iMazing. Maybe that is what did it? It’s just so freaking weird and odd lol.

Why did you mess up the phone? :mad:
It was never my intention too lol...probably just a simple fix by redownloading the music to my phone.

Yes likely. The software you used is likely not aware of international character sets. I’ve been used to multi lingual programming all my life and it annoys me no end when developers so no awareness of other languages like that.
