Should we consider expanding the number of albums from 3000 to 5000?

For quite some time now the songs list has been expanded from 6,000 to 10,000. Before that, the ratio between albums was very clear 3000 albums/6000 songs. I honestly think that made perfect sense. But now that there are 10,000 songs but still only 3,000 albums it opens the door to more songs making...
