Yes, I could make the album value to be "Single" but that way it will be create another folder for Singles in the folder structure like this: Year - Singles which i don't want obviously.

But I'm having a little problem inside the MusicBee and i am sure there is also a fix for this. See if it's a Non Album track then i will get tagged by Single in Picard but the Album tag in the empty but this way i get Unknown Album written in the place of Album in Album and Tracks inside Music tab. Is there any way i can disappear or even better get Single written in there?
It looks like you can simply create another virtualtag for your current view:
Code
$isnull(<album>,<title>,<album>)

Well, it didn't solve the problem and Unknown Album is still display after creating and applying the virtual tag in naming template exception.

Instead it duplicated the titles of the songs like this:

2016 - No More Interviews No More Interviews

Huh? My formula was for your album art + details view, not for file organization.  I replied directly to the screenshot of your playlist where you disliked how tracks lacking any <album> data returned "unknown album" in your playlist view.

If that doesn't work for you, the panel configuration settings are in the menu at the top left of the main panel.

I'm not even sure how I did it, but I seem to have accidentally modified this post instead of replying to it.  Sorry about that!

I was just saying that all you have to do is change your template exception for singles, if you went that route.

Find "Album" and replace it with your virtual tag?

Thanks for the screenshot man! I got it and it helped me but using $isnull(<album>,<title>,<album>) made title of song it's album name so i modified it like to $isnull(<album>,"Single",<album>) and now it's displaying Single whenever album is unknown.
