index 0 is out of bounds for axis 0 with size 0?

Problem Description:

def top_n_songs(data, n, min_play_counts=100):

recommendations = data[data['play_freq'] > min_play_counts]

recommendations = recommendations.sort_values(by='avg_count', ascending=False)

return recommendations.index[:n]
res = list(top_n_songs(final_play, 10, 100))

list_of_songs = []
for i in res:
    list_of_songs.append(df_final[df_final['song_id']== str(i) ]['title'].unique()[0])

Error message

IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-52-7c7c6897126b> in <module>

      5 for i in res:
----> 6     list_of_songs.append(df_final[df_final['song_id']== str(i) ]['title'].unique()[0])
      7 list_of_songs

IndexError: index 0 is out of bounds for axis 0 with size 0

I am a beginner, tried my level best can you give me a hand?

Solution – 1

If str(i) == song_id doesn’t match anything in df_final, the array returned by .unique() will be empty, causing an IndexError. Make sure to check that first, before attempting to access it with the subscript ([0]).

Solution – 2

I am not really sure about it but if you remove that last [0]
from line 6, I think it will solve your error.

list_of_songs.append(df_final[df_final['song_id']== str(i) ]['title'].unique())
