Adding Artists With Identical Names

It came to my attention while adding singles to the site today that you can’t add music by one artist if another artist of the same name already exists on the site. I wanted to add the 2019 single “Paper Tiger” by Barker (an alt-rock singer-songwriter), but I couldn’t because another artist by the name of Barker (an electronic artist) is already on the site.

I could either add the song under the electronic Barker, or I could just not add the song to the site at all. Could we fix this issue so we could add two artists who share a name? I’m sure there’s more examples than just Barker.
