Music on my Flow that I don't like

So the last three weeks my flow has been off kilter. It looks like one genre of music keeps popping up that I don't like and despite unliking them consistently they keep popping up. I've gone through my favourites to see if anything there could be the culprit but I just can't find it.
Is there a way to see what songs made Flow think I'd like that song. Then I can unlike that from my favourites.
Thank you in advance.

Hi there@AVXlnce 

Thank you for your patience. As I've mentioned before, due to large feedback, our devs are working on this. We should see an improved feature soon, both for artists and songs. Do you have a desktop or iOS device? The changes have taken place in these platforms first, with Android following soon 👍🏼

Hi there 🙂 Can you tell me which song or genre you're talking about? Happy to check and let you know 🙂

It doesn't matter what station I'm on, when a song pops up that I don't like and I unheart that song, I get the 'ok we won't recommend that again' the same song will play later in the day. How do I stop the songs I don't like and make it stick?

You can try to block the artist, for example (via Desktop) @AVXlnce. And if you 'unheart' the song 3 times you should not see it for quite a while. We're also working on this for your future reference.

I've unhearted the songs at least 50 times and they keep playing every day, sometimes more than once.
Beyond irritating.

Sorry to hear that @AVXlnce. Have you tried to block the artist (via desktop)?

I don't see how to block the artist on the desktop.

Hey @AVXlnce

Check this topic - you need to go on the artist profile and select 'don't recommend this artist' 🙂

I cannot get into the Insider even though I am logged into the desktop.

I have done everything you have told me to do. What happened July 9 at 1:25pm? Llaman a la Puerta/Cuanto de Mi, Es Solo Tu Voz Encarnada en Mi/Antisocial/Gritame/Mujer from Cronicas Del Rock Vol. 2 Peruano Mix AGAIN.
I DO NOT LIKE THIS SONG, I DO NOT LIKE THIS GROUP, I HAVE UNHEARTED THIS AT LEAST 100 TIMES. HOW DO I GET THIS TO NO LONGER PLAY ON MY SYSTEM?
UNHEART MEANS UNHEART, NOT PLAY AGAIN IN A FEW DAYS. I DO NOT WISH TO HEAR THIS SONG, ARTIST, GROUP, BAND OR ANY INCARNATION OF THIS.
HOW DO I GET THIS TO STOP?

Why offer the unheart option if you are not going to make it work? That's just stupid.

Thank you for your feedback and for your patience @AVXlnce

We've been gathering a lot of feedback about this feature and our devs are already working on an improvement. Sometimes you can 'unheart' the artist by accident or change your mind, so we're working on a more permanent feature for people who definitely don't want to hear an artist again. Please bear with us, it's all we can ask at this moment.

If you unlike an artist accidentally you can always re-like the artist. I intentionally want to remove artists that I do not wish to hear. Not just for a day, permanently remove.

Yes, that makes sense @AVXlnce and that's why we're developing an improved way. I'll keep this topic updated.

Please let me know when this feature is working

How many thousands of times to I have to unheart this stupid song before it never plays again? It doesn't matter what station I listen to, this plays at least twice a day, every day. Is this your brother or something?

I still cannot unheart songs.  It doesn’t matter that I see the “OK, we won’t recommend this song again”.  Sometimes it plays as many as 5 times even after I unheart the song.  I want to be able to unheart songs if not artists.  It seems you pick an artist and it plays no matter what station I am on.  The artist makes no rhyme nor reason as to why.  The music doesn’t fit the genre I’m listening to.  Why can’t I make these songs go away?
