Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Touch Bar

I think this might be caused by a workaround for an issue with the "Now Playing" API. The workaround causes songs with titles <= 2 characters not display.
It shouldn't be related to numeric titles though.

So this issue is not fixable ? There are more <= 2 characters-songs than it seems :smiley:
