That Dandy song is the only hip-hop/r&b song they are playing (aside from dance remixes of them). It's clearly payola...the Sirius execs obviously have no idea what dance music is and figured they could throw it on The Beat and nobody would notice, and the record company would just give them their money. It's really disgusting.

Not too long ago The Beat was experimenting with playing the original versions of some hip-hop and pop songs in with the dance music, luckilly that is gone...but now we have to deal with payola. On a side note, The Beat has added the new Amber and Eric Prydz vs. Floyd track, so at least we are getting a little bit of new music.

My whole idea of the dance stations was that it would only play dance music. I don't see the Hip Hop stations playing dance. Isn't that the whole point of having the categories? Whoever is making the decisions over there seriously needs to be let go, esp if they can't understand that concept.
