You have albums under 54-40, 54*40, and 54.40 all from the same band. It's 54-40, the pages need to be consolidated.

@andresdelnorteh I understand some artists with the same name end up mixed in the the same artist profile sometimes.
In order to fix it or report it to the music team, we’ll need as much info as possible, such as the URL’s on Deezer, URL’s of songs that belong to each artist etc.
Thanks :)

How do I report it to the music team? In this case it’s actually the same artist, it’s just that people keep using different symbols to separate the name.

@andresdelnorteh You can report a problem on the web version or desktop app if you click on the 3 dots of the song that is currently playing, as you can see in the image below:

This is a frustrating issue that crops up on most streaming services — along with the reverse problem which is different artists using the same name and getting their releases grouped under the same artist page.

By and large, streaming services have to rely on static data as provided by artists or their management/publishers, etc., but Deezer is more committed than most to querying and correcting errors. If you can provide as much detail as possible (URL’s, etc.) it would help the catalog team investigate, and you may wish to repost your report as a catalog query.

I ended up DM-ing the artist. It doesn’t appear they followed up but whatever.
