2.Second Reason could be of Cache Memory you can Clear the cache memory by Doing the following steps:
  • If you do not have hidden files set to display by default: in Finder, press the Alt/Option key to access the Library folder under the Go menu. If you do have hidden files accessible: in Finder, just go to the Library folder in your user directory.
  • Go the Caches folder and look for the com.spotify.client folder.
  • Delete everything inside the Storage, Data and Browser folders, but not the folders themselves. You can select all of the items by pressing Command + A.
