It �s correct because it �s the same as  "in spite of that" .... " even so" ...  I would replace "yet" for any of the options I �ve just written !
Hope it �s clearer !

it �s a synonym of "however" , or "despite" : so roughly it would mean " despite the "problems" or "the situation" its popularity has never changed." " even though there are problems , its popularity has never changed " .
it ha nothing to do with "not...yet + present perfect "
have a nice day
