Description of the issue

I’m a new user of Roon, so just getting to know the workings of the software, however this issue puzzles me a bit.

First I thought that it may be my metadata that was wrong, however I can’t find any mention of Ty Dolla $ign (or any of his numerous aliases) in any of the metadata in the files.

My files are tagged using Yate, getting data from Discogs, before they have been added to Roon.

The Roon import settings should be mainly default settings.

Running Roon v1.8 (build 831) on MacOS.

This issue appears to have been resolved after upgrading to latest version of Roon.
