Have you tried Clearing Data? I mean Spotify's Data from the SD. This should solve the issue. Because it has worked for me before.

Glad to hear that it worked!

These are the steps to move Spotify's data to SD Card. 

1. Navigate to Settings on your phone. You can find the settings menu in the app drawer.

2. Tap Apps.

3. Select Spotify.

4. Tap Storage.

5. Tap Change if it’s there. If you don’t see the Change option, the app cannot be moved. If you are unable to find any apps with this option, it is likely that your device does not support the feature.

6. Tap Move.

 

If your device does not support moving apps to a microSD card there’s another option, first introduced in Android Marshmallow, that may be the answer for you. This feature is called Adoptable or Flex Storage, and it allows you to format a microSD card to act like added internal storage. Again, not all devices with a microSD slot will support this feature: Motorola, HTC, Huawei and NVIDIA have all chosen to enable Flex Storage, while Samsung and LG have to date removed it.

 

There are a few factors to consider before enabling this feature. You will want the fastest microSD card that you can find to ensure smooth performance, at least Class 10 or UHS-I and preferably UHS-3. Any data present on the microSD card will be erased when you format it as internal storage, and from that point, it will be unusable in other devices (unless you reformat it again). Finally, remember that if you remove this microSD card from your phone, you will break functionality to any apps or content you’ve moved to it.

 

*IMPORTANT*

READ THE ABOVE BEFORE DOING THE NEXT SET OF STEPS. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE OR ISSUES THAT ARE DONE TO YOUR DEVICE. DO THE NEXT SET OF STEPS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

1. Navigate to settings on your phone. You can find the settings menu in the app drawer.

2. Tap Storage.

3. Select your SD card.

4. Tap the overflow menu button in the upper-right corner.

5. Select Storage Settings.

6. Tap Format as Internal.

7. Tap Erase & Format. If the system determines that your microSD card is too slow it will prompt you with a warning here that it will degrade performance.

8. Tap Move now. After making the selection you will tap next and initiate the transfer to your microSD card. The system will indicate roughly how long the transfer will take and how much data will be moved to your SD card.

9. Tap Done. Your SD card will now be listed immediately below the internal shared storage and the system will use it as additional internal storage in the future.

 

Hopefully, you would have the feature at the start. So that you don't have to go through all of these steps. Please let me know if the solution worked. Waiting to hear from you
