It might surprise the big wigs at Spotify to know that while Drake is indeed a very popular rapper loved by many, there is still a considerable majority of people who don’t want him shoved down their throats at every possible opportunity.
In a bid to promote his new album, Spotify thought it would be a grand idea to plaster him over every single playlist, regardless if his music was actually involved or not.

Premium Spotify users are livid that they’re paying for an ad-free version of the service and still have to suffer Drake’s annoyingly smug face, even going as far as to request a refund for the month from Spotify.

Apparently, Spotify issue refunds on a case by case basis, so you’d have to get in contact yourself in order to see if your eligible for a months refund.
Ah well, at least it birthed some spicy memes in the process.
Me: *Opens Spotify*
Spotify: Drake? 🙂
Me: No, I…
Me: But I…
