Media image won't update in media_player custom component

I have been looking for a solution to this for two days now and can’t find the answer. I am making a custom_component for airmusic radios, the code is here:

It works ok, but I want to have a radio station logo displayed in the media_player card. The airmusic radios have either no auth or basic auth with a set credentials. I have one of each. If I use this code:

        # If powered on
        if self._pwstate == 'playing':
            playinfo_xml = await self.request_call('/playinfo')
            soup = BeautifulSoup(playinfo_xml, features = "xml")
            servicename = soup.station_info.renderContents().decode('UTF8')
            reference = soup.sid.renderContents().decode('UTF8')
            eventtitle ='UTF8')
            eventid = soup.artist.renderContents().decode('UTF8')
            response = await self.hass.async_add_executor_job(
                'http://' + self._host + ':' + str(self._port) + '/playlogo.jpg',
                {'auth': HTTPBasicAuth('su3g4go6sk7', 'ji39454xu/^')}
            self._image_url = response.url

            _LOGGER.debug("Airmusic: [update] - Eventtitle for host %s = %s",
                          self._host, eventtitle)
            # Info of selected source and title
            self._selected_source = servicename 
            self._selected_media_content_id = eventid
            self._selected_media_title = servicename + ' - ' + eventid + ' - ' + eventtitle

The radio with no authentication displays radio logo and updates it when I change the station, but if I use this code:

            response = await self.hass.async_add_executor_job(
                'http://su3g4go6sk7:ji39454xu%2F^@' + self._host + ':' + str(self._port) + '/playlogo.jpg'
            self._image_url = response.url

Both radios display the logo but it won’t update after the change of station! It is the first logo the integration loads, and even after power cycle it stays the same.

What am I missing? It is my first try with python and coding but for this integration everything I want is working, except the logo.

I got it working with proxy album art:

# GET - Radio station logo
    def media_image_url(self):
        """Image of current playing media."""
        _LOGGER.debug("Airmusic: [media_image_url] - Using proxy for image URL: %s", self._image_url)
        return self.get_browse_image_url('music', self._selected_media_content_id)

    async def async_get_browse_image(self, media_content_type, media_content_id, media_image_id=None):
        """Serve album art. Returns (content, content_type)."""
        image_url = f'http://{self._host}:{self._port}/playlogo.jpg'

            async with aiohttp.ClientSession() as session:
                async with session.get(image_url, auth=aiohttp.BasicAuth('su3g4go6sk7', 'ji39454xu/^')) as response:
                    if response.status == 200:
                        content = await
                        return content, response.content_type
                        _LOGGER.error("Failed to fetch image: %s", response.status)
                        return None, None
        except aiohttp.ClientError as e:
            _LOGGER.error("ClientError while fetching image: %s", str(e))
            return None, None
