Hello,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm afraid we do not have the technical means of reverting, or adjusting, play counts. You can delete and re-upload a track to refresh the play count, but keep in mind this means all Likes, Comments and Re-posts will also be lost.

Our Trust & Safety team is working towards this though so in the future we can eradicate this problem and be in a better position to combat fake activity.

Best,
Mathis
Is there any update on this? I have a track that gained 10000 plays in one day, clearly fake. I had to remove the stats so it don't look like i'm cheating, but i just want my normal plays back. This is the track: https://soundcloud.com/iamalexcph/the-day-you-left
