i updated to 8.4 to listen to Beats1, but hated how the new Music App handled my mp3 collection (it also deleted all but 3 artists in my library for some reason…). read this article and it helped me downgrade so i can listen to my mp3 collection the way i want it — THANK YOU.

I did this and it took my back down to 8.3, but now when I try to open my music app it would open for 2 seconds then crash, or not open at all. How do I fix this? (I made sure to back everything up in my laptop AND on the Cloud)
