Issue with wrong audio track playback in 'most played tracks'

Hello! I have found interesting issue with audio track playback in 'most played tracks' section on web.

When you are listening any artists music in 'most played tracks' section and then left it on pause for some time (it can be day or two), you could observe interesting behavior, when you click in play button wrong audio track started to play instead of selected one. Reload of page fix this issue. Maybe, reason of this problem is in 'most played tracks' section audios always change their order, and If it happens the front-end does not rerender the page, and send an outdated id into the backend and in result it start playing the wrong audio track.

I hope my comment was useful and it will help to improve your service.

I`m using Mac OS with Chrome.
I have just reproduced it. It`s very simple, just open 'most played tracks' screen for some artist and leave this tab open for one day. Check this video below, when I clicked in tracks 5, 6 and 7 wrong song started to play.

Hi there, that is indeed a strange behaviour. Could you write down the steps to reproduce it, also which OS and which browser you were using?

Hi there @Vadym

Thank you for your detailed report and video, we can spot the issue. I'll be passing it on to our devs but I can't guarantee when this will be rectified - as you've said, the page reload can fix the issue, so the priority for our devs may be decreased. In any case, it will be looked into thanks to you 😉
