You might also have noticed that some songs displaying as unknown when the information in these sections are missing. You can fix them all by adding the artist, album and genre information using Musixmatch. Editing the tags once will solve the issue on all MP3 playing apps. ID3 is the universal standard framework when it comes to storing information in MP3 files.
