Why are explicit songs difficult to find?


Why does Deezer always surface the edited version of sings? Additionally, why don't they call out that you are listening to the edited version of the song?

Anyone have a work around to potentially suppress all edited versions of songs?

Hi again @ckj1211

I'm a big boy as well, there's nothing to do with profanity so I get you completely - it's frustrating. You want to hear the 'original' release.
However, Deezer doesn't control or edit the songs which are released, we're only the platform. The distributors and the artists' teams decide what version is made available and how. And the "treasure hunt" you bravely have to do comes up with other compilations which include an explicit version.

Perhaps you'd like to visit our ideas forum and start a convo there. People can vote and we can pass suggestions to our devs.
I say this because some of our users voted for something similar, but to an opposite effect. Users can now filter explicit songs so that they don't show up.

Hi there @ckj1211

Deezer doesn't hide or "bury" any explicit songs. But could you be more specific and give me an example? I'll check on my side and if there's something wrong I can pass it on to the right team 😉
Hey Rudi,

Thanks for getting back to me. Here is a recent example. This song came out on Friday, as a user how am I able to tell which one is edited vs. explicit: https://www.deezer.com/search/halsey%20juice%20wrld. If I go to the artist page (https://www.deezer.com/us/artist/5292512), I would expect the "latest release" to be unedited (see attached screenshot). It is annoying to have to find the full version of songs in a lot of instances.



I would like to not have to do a treasure hunt on which one is the edited vs. non-edited version. Thanks for your help from a profanity using fan 🙂

Thanks a ton Rudi! I will hop over to the ideas forum and check it out.
