Songs from Compilations have "Various Artists" as artist. This is set as Album Artist, the Artist is set right in the File.

Maybe it is an equal Problem as described here:

I think this is another issue. The tags were successfully read, but it is instead of "Artist" the "Album Artist" is displayed. Files are aac files from the iTunes store and self ripped aac files.

Strange... can't confirm this on my phone. Actually, I'd LOVE for the media player to sort everything according to album artist because otherwise the artist list just gets clogged up with countless single-song-entries. It's why I use an android player that actually can sort by album artist. Give me sorting by album artist and scrobbler and I'd be happy ;)

So after some research i found out that the player displays the Artist Name if its an MP3 File, if its an AAC File the Album Artist name is displayed. So this is definitely a Bug. I think Ozymandias has just MP3 Files, so he see the Artist name.

Yes, only mp3 here.
