How to fix Spotify not playing songs?

"I’ve recently had an issue however, with songs not wanting to play. I’ve tried both on and off wifi, data, and just the downloaded content but almost my entire library won't play for more than 15 seconds. I’ve also tried deleting other apps and photos from the phone (thinking it was a space issue) but have continued to have this problem. It’s only been an issue since the most recent update and it’s getting very frustrating because I’d just like to listen and it isn’t working. I’ve also tried closing out the app, restarting the phone, and a couple other things with no luck."
