So, yeah Noah Cyrus has released her debut song and whenever it plays it automatically redirects to being a Miley Cyrus song.

Please can this be fixed as it is very annoying! And yes, I like the song by Noah Cyrus thank you.

When will this be resolved? It comes up correctly in the desktop app, but not once it scrobbles.

2 f*cking months and still not fixed? Seriously why is it taking so long to fix something so small?

I feel like auto-correct should be disabled across the site until
problems like these are fixed. It's really doing more harm than good
and damaging our charts, ironically.

There's nothing more frustrating than track, artist and album tags
being auto-corrected to an incorrect tag when scrobbled with the right tag.

Noah Cyrus now has a new song out, Stay Together, and it too is scrobbling incorrectly under Miley Cyrus.  This is frustrating now, but will become even more frustrating when Noah's full length album is out and the whole thing is scrobbled under Miley.

This is ridiculous. It's been 8 months since this Noah Cyrus problem has been reported and it still has not been fixed. Can we get an update please?

This is actively being worked on, but the work involved is complicated and time consuming, and progress is unfortunately much slower than any of us would like.  Bear in mind that this problem affects not just Noah Cyrus, but many other artists and releases as well -- I asked if it was possible to just fix it for her, and the answer was unfortunately no.  

>>> I really want to scrobble this song.
Scrobble it normally, we will correct it back to Noah automatically when we can.

As explained in this faq, it is not currently possible add, change, or remove existing correction mappings.  This is being worked on and we're sorry for any inconvenience caused in the meantime.

In late June / early July, if everything goes to plan, we'll be replacing one of our core database services, which should fix numerous issues reported with user libraries (many of which are to do with mismatched corrections between user libraries and the catalogue).  

On it's own, this will not automatically fix the artist page redirection from Miley to Noah, but the current system is preventing us from adding and removing ANY new corrections; so once this work is done, the path should be clear to finally address this problem.  Once that happens, yes, current Noah Cyrus scrobbles which are being directed to Miley go back to Noah.

One other immediate benefit is that the corrections setting should be properly respected when the new service is deployed, so turning off auto-corrections will correctly display your scrobbles as Noah Cyrus in your library, provided that your originally scrobbled them that way (which I expect most people already are). 

At present, if you turn corrections off now, what happens is that it lists the tracks as Noah under "Recent tracks", but it'll count them as Miley in the library and top artists -- when the new scrobble db is deployed, they should be counted properly under Noah if corrections are turned off. So my advice for now is to keep scrobbling normally and consider turning Artist and Track corrections off in your website settings.

Again, thanks for your continued patience and understanding as we work to fix this.
