FlaskFM Playlist titles

I have been working on FlaskFM but am now having issues getting my representation for my Item class to show up the way I want it to. I’d like for under “Your current playlist” the actual song name to show up. Since the Item class doesn’t include this as per the instructions, I tried adding this into my database by adding a foreign key. However, when I do this, it just renders as “None.” Has anyone gotten to get this to display properly?


from app import app, db

#the User model: each user has a username, and a playlist_id foreign key referring
#to the user's Playlist
class User(db.Model):
  id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key = True)
  username = db.Column(db.String(50), index = True, unique = True) 
  playlist_id = db.Column(db.Integer,  db.ForeignKey('playlist.id'))
  #representation method
  def __repr__(self):
        return "{}".format(self.username)

#create the Song model here + add a nice representation method
class Song(db.Model):
  id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key = True)    
  title = db.Column(db.String(50), index = True, unique = True)
  artist = db.Column(db.String(50), index = True, unique = True)
  n = db.Column(db.Integer, index = False, unique = False)
  #representation method
  def __repr__(self):
        return "{} by {}".format(self.title, self.artist)

#create the Item model here + add a nice representation method
class Item(db.Model):
  id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key = True)
  song_id = db.Column(db.Integer, db.ForeignKey('song.id'))  
  playlist_id = db.Column(db.Integer, db.ForeignKey('playlist.id'))
  title_two = db.Column(db.String(50), db.ForeignKey('song.title'))
#create the Playlist model here + add a nice representation method
  def __repr__(self):
        return "{}".format(self.title_two)
class Playlist(db.Model):
  id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key = True)
  items = db.relationship('Item', backref='playlist', lazy='dynamic')
