Actually, there are two potential aspects in relation to the field [Artist] which may be considered and in each case or combined will deliver different results:

  1. entries in the field [Artist] with "featuring", in which case the song should actually also count for the specific artist. The relevant workflow with this consideration would deliver different results.
  2. entries in the field [Artist] with " and ". However, this case is more difficult and the relevant solution is not approached, as it cannot be precisely determined whether "and" belongs to the genuine artist name or is it indeed an operator concatenating two artists.

Anyway, the true solution may be little more difficult than it is suggested in the Outputs.

 

Just a compare between the results with (as in the outputs of the challenge) and without cleaning the "featuring" aspect only:

This was a fun one. Used a nested if statement for the decades, but now see there's an easier way. Solution below:

I'm not sure if I'm more satisfied with the succinctness of the challenge, or the results - I guess I'll just have to go with both!

Here is my solution...

 

Perhaps a macro would have helped to not repeat the solution...
