    Assuming your artist is 100% correctly tagged, it takes a few hours to days for the artist background to appear.
    Also, you can check if an artist has a background in the first place by searching the artist's name in the windows phone store.


    If still nothing, search up "MPAtool" in the store and download the app. You'll be able to tag all your artist with that app.

    Go to Songs. Hit the alphabet letter so that all the alphabet tiles show up, the last tile is some sort of globe icon which I don't know know the name of and jump to there. Quick select and delete those files.

    This problem correlates to one I've experienced back in the good old WP7 days. I'm a music tag freak: you'll never see one song in my collection not tagged with the correct info. Too bad Zune has to be moderately flawed when it comes to finding artist backgrounds. Sometimes, it shows up a few seconds into a song, sometimes it doesn't show up until you search the artist in the marketplace.

    Even to today, Xbox Music fails to find artist background and completely botches the artist and album tags. When I uploaded Bangarang EP into my Lumia 920, somehow the album picture shows up as the album thumb for Gangnam Style instead.

    I love Windows Phone and all, but all these flaws that should've been already fixed tarnishes the overall value of the operating system.
