So far I’ve noticed that cardi b songs have been playing the clean versions, despite me being able to see explicit versions available. 

i clicked “I’m tired of this track” on the censored ones shown below

Hi everyone! 👋

A ticket has been created with our engineering team so they can help investigate the issue with tracks from Cardi B's album, Invasion of Privacy, now playing censored.

We appreciate everyone who took the time to report this!

@heakywunn We try to buy unedited versions of all music and comedy we acquire, but sometimes a clean version is all that's available. This is particularly common with movie soundtracks and best-of collections.

Sometimes our licensing for certain content may expire. Other times we get the radio edit of a track before we get the original, and the tracks are indistinguishable from one another from a database perspective.

For that reason, Pandora might select a clean track from one of these sources instead of a nearly identical track from another album. This is an unfortunate reality of the record business: sometimes songs that are not identical are labeled as identical.

Finally, the lyrics preview will always display "clean" lyrics. If you'd like to view the full, uncensored text, click Show more or See all lyrics.

For now, you can give any censored tracks that play a Thumbs Down, and that will prevent those versions from playing on your station again.

Hope this helps!

This track went from explicit to clean. Listening on Android app on my Jessie Reyez station (listening privately, not on crowd faves or deep cuts). Artist is Cardi B feat SZA, track is I Do. I took this screen shot then gave thumbs down which took effect. I do want this song in my station though, ultimately.

All of these songs so far have been the clean versions, and they weren't like that before they were unedited Explicit versions when I like them.

@TMac33 Is it only happening with tracks from the album people on this thread are reporting - Invasion of Privacy?

Can you please send me a screenshot of the next censored track by Cardi B that plays?

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
