    I have a problem with Music App on WP8.1. When I play songs by Eminem the app doesn't show me his backgroung picture but Lil Wayne's.Everything was good,then I transferred some new songs from my computer and then it happened.
    how can I fix this.

    Do a search in the store for an app called MPAtool. It works!

    mPAtool doesn't work with WP 8.1.
    @OP you can't fix this yourself.

    I use that app (Mpatool) for lock screen background and it works.But I am talking when I'm "inside" the app,when I open Music and you have currently song playing etc. And it that place,the background is wrong-it should be Eminem's pic but it' Lil Wayne.

    The "music" app needs to be renamed "abandon all hope, ye who enter here".

    It most certainly does not. The app even says so itself. What it does is that the pics may show up on the lock screen(if it works) or the old music hub, but not on the live tile or the new app.

    Really? I wouldn't lie to you guys, I just tried it the other night when I posted in this thread and it worked fine for album covers and artist backgrounds! And I'm on WP dev preview 8.10.14219.341 w/Cyan firmware.

    I was thinking though, I have had this app for a long time. It was one of the very first apps I downloaded way back when WP8.0 first came out. Maybe new 8.1 users can't download it from the store, as I don't even see it listed in the store any more.

    Maybe that's why it's still working for me.

    Live tile? No, it's never had that function for me.. Just does album art and artist backgrounds.

    It doesn't do album art anymore.

    It did for me... I'm telling you, I just tried it a couple nights ago and it worked! Added album art and artist backgrounds for several of my albums on my SD card.

    Xbox Music adds Artist and Album art on its own. MPAtool literally *cannot* work with WP8.1. The dev has said as much

    I did see the listing in the store where he states that it is not compatible with WP8.1, so it must be some sort of fluke that it still works on my phone. I used it to add album art, like I said, just a couple nights ago. (it wasn't Xbox music that added the album artwork... I definitely used MPAtool!)
    I'll make a video tonight when I get home to show you it still works.

    Well I tried it again when I got home, and you're right; while the app does start up, and it does find and download album art for albums that have the art missing, it will not follow through and finish by applying said album art to the albums.

    I stand corrected. I guess I was just assuming it was working when I saw it downloading the art.. But it's not doing anyone any good if it can't apply the art to the albums! :/

    Just download Music Hub Tile. You can manually input album at artist images there.

    Xbox Music is just a bad app based on my experience. Wont even sync my playlists right! The Hub Tile works great. It's basically the old Music+Videos app on WP8
