Fans speculated that the alleged removal of Brand New was most likely due to their sexual misconduct issues back in 2017. Previously the only thing Spotify stated to users was that they “can’t comment” on the issue.
In the wake of a lot of angry people sending a lot of angry tweets last week regarding Brand New, it seems the company decided to shadow fix the issue. Social media posts are coming in showing Brand New being included in Spotify Wrapped.

here’s something interesting. two weeks ago, i complained that spotify scrubbed brand new from my decade lists and from my “made for you” mixes. i noticed today that they’re back. i know there was at least one article about. i wonder if people complained pic.twitter.com/HT31dsz2Iu

Is Spotify finally removing Brand New from their blacklist? 👀

We do wonder if Spotify will put out an official statement regarding the initial removal in the first place. They might just sweep it under the rug.
