Default Spotify / Please Come Home For Christmas

Is it just me or are BJ not promoted at all on Spotify?

They seldom seem to make any main playlists, THINFS isn't there when you browse new releases. Particularly, Please Come Home For Christmas doesn't seem to be on any of the Xmas playlists (I've barely heard it at all this year on radio/tv either). Streaming isn't BJ's strong point, but Spotify really doesn't seem to help them at all. They might just sneak Prayer in on the odd 80s rock playlist but that's about it. Not sure if it's due to the Tidal link up, but they were hardly prominent before that.

Spotify has artists they partnered up with (e.g. Metallica, Coldplay) in exchange for promotional advantage. Being that Jovi partnered with their rival in Tidal I'm sure has a lot to do with them not being promoted. If they were a massively popular young act with big singles, Spotify would have no choice but to include them. But that's not the case here, obviously.

Lastly, if we're talking Christmas songs, I Wish Every Day should be the one promoted instead of Please Come Home; after it's a Jovi original.
