    Hi guys,

    i am finally deciding to give XBOX music to give it a go , however i got issue where artists from same album are showing as separate albums? ,

    EG i got 30 songs in 1 Album.. they showing as seperate 30 albums.. ruins the whole experience meaning i can listen to 1 song at time for that album...?

    See below screenshots.

    On the image I see that "2pac" written with space and without space in it... the app handles that as seperate artist.

    ​Cheers,
    You need to add "album artist" in the tag info. Use mp3tag or iTunes to change that entry. When you have multiple mp3-files with the same "album artist" + same "album" in the tag info, they will be one entry, else there will be multiple entries. The "artist"-entry is only for display in the app when a song plays, while "album artist" is used for sorting, which is displayed, indeed, under the album title.
