Drake station gets added when app is launched

Samthepegasus

I started getting an ad for this new Drake song, called Slide or something. I don't like rap, so I ignore the ad. But now any time I open the app, it creates a Drake station. I've deleted it about three times today. This last time it didn't show up in my stations, but it was still playing as though I had a station for it, so I couldn't delete it.

Please help, I don't know what to do to stop this station from showing up.

I have been running into this issue recently too, which I’ve never experienced before. Thank you for looking into this.

I’m having the same issue with the Drake station?! I hate it 😥 it will literally stop my song (my stations are on shuffle) and bam! It creates the Drake station and starts playing that terrible **ahem** he calls music. I have deleted it about 13 times now. I saw the push notifications and ads for Drake but have never clicked on one? This is on my iPhone. I saw a few people with desktops having the same issue. Someone told them to look at their bookmark and make sure it was solely the pandora link with nothing else added. It fixed their desktops but I wouldn’t even know where to begin on my iPhone ? Please send help! I can’t stand that guy!

Hi @Ladyraja and @Jhf122! Thanks for visiting community and posting your experience. 

I know exactly how you feel because this happened to me too. I don't listen to Drake and then bam!, he's on my station list. 

I've included your info (next to mine 😁) on our ticket for this. We're looking into it and appreciate your continue patience during this time, I know how frustrating it can be.

I am having the same problem! It’s driving me nuts. I hate rap, and I’ve literally never listened to Drake in my life.

I've tried switching between offline and online modes and haven't been able to reproduce the issue.  The problem hasn't reoccurred since.  I can report back if happens again in an environment where I'm going in and out of cell reception as was the case before.

Thanks

I am having this issue as well. It will not let me delete it which is incredibly frustrating. It is so intrusive for this music to just start playing out of nowhere. 😞

I'm having this issue as well.  I've deleted Drake Radio 3 times so far.  It's particularly problematic because I'm putting Pandora on around children and it's just been auto playing as soon as I put the app on.  I don't want to play Drake for other people's children!  I don't want to play Drake at all, really.

Not a happy paying customer right now. Just ran into my daughter's room who woke up crying- she sleeps to a meditation music station- and when I opened the door, I heard a Drake song off his new album complete with profanity blaring at least twice the volume that we normally have her device at. I looked at my Pandora account to see what station was playing, and it said our regular deep sleep meditation music station...but showed a Drake song was currently playing. Absolutely ridiculous and inappropriate. And now I have a crying toddler in the middle of the night. Do we continue paying for this service and just hope this stupid Drake "glitch" doesn't rear its ugly head again on another station? Or should we just cancel our subscription since pandora is now unreliable?
