Brave doesn't trigger MPRIS update event on song change

Brave doens’t tell the OS about song change via D-Bus’ MPRIS interface.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open any music streaming service, e.g. YouTube Music.
  2. Open a playlist and play it.
  3. Click on next button.

Actual result:
The OS(Gentoo Linux) is totally unaware that a new song has started playing, because the D-Bus wasn’t notified of any song changes.

Expected result:
Brave triggers a song change event on D-Bus’ MPRIS interface whenever a song starts playing after clicking on “Next song” button.

Reproduces how often:
Every time

Operating System and Brave Version:
Version 1.19.88 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I’m using playerctl metadata --follow to watch for song changes and it works with Firefox. I installed Brave using the brave-overlay on Gentoo.
