Yesterday I added two songs to musicbee, but the songs order of date added ranked in the wrong way. So how do I set it to sort in the right date. There is an image to show how it is shown. Thank you very much.

Welcome to the forum Qualshriiph.

It might help if you could give more details about the settings you are using for this panel.
Are you e.g. using custom or virtual tags trying to achieve this?

Yes, I use virtual tags to achieve this and I set it on virtual tags and group by.
There is an image to show how did I set. https://sm.ms/image/yNFVEa7HsITxA1X

Have you set the virtual tag to be a date field?
Options > Tags (2) > fields: configure fields > Type: date

Thank you very much! I just set the type to date, but it still ranked in wrong place.

I see that you can't sort on other items than 'name' and 'count' there.
So MB will be treating the date as a name there.
You could solve it by changing the date format to yyyy-mm-dd
Then the sorting should be correct:

$Date(<Date Added>,yyyy-MM-dd)

Just wanted to say that 十二国記 夜想月雫 ~ Piano Memories is an excellent album.
