Default Sirius Slacking With New Singles........

These songs are getting major airplay on FM or MTV and BET but I can't find them on Sirius.

Lil Wayne - Bring It Back
Lloyd Banks f/ G-Unit - Smile
Lloyd f/Ashanti - Southside (just joined the play list lastweek, though. I've heard about this song since about Feb. or March)
Ruben Studdard - What If
NERD - She Wants To Move
Young Rome f/ Omarion- Afterparty

Also, does anyone know why Sirius constricts certains songs to certain streams? For example, Game Over by Lil Flip. This song has been out for awhile. Its gotten alot of play in Streetbeat but it has just joined the playlist on 50. Same for Cassidy, "Get No Better." Its been on 44 for months but its just joining 50. Come on, Sirius. Get on the ball....

"What If"- by Ruben Studdard plays on Heart & Soul, Slow Jamz and Hot Jamz.....did you do a search to see if those artists/titles were indeed in the mix?

Yea, I know. I just forgot to delete it from my list or put a note beside it. Its not on Hot Jamz. Its another R&B song that Sirius believes that should stay on 51 and 52 only (U Should've Known Better by Monica too and a few others imho). I don't see the reason why.

I've checked all those songs. That's how I found out Southside was playing. Funny thing, the overnight dj on Hot Jamz seems to be the first to play new singles then the morning and afternoon crew joins the bandwagon a couple days or weeks later.

I forgot Mary J. Blige new single, "It's A Wrap." I've been waiting for it and I still haven't heard it on Sirius yet.

I have a couple more songs that aren't on Sirius yet. I have to find my list again.

i agree completely. there is no rhyme or reason why sirius plays songs on some streams and not others. i noticed this when doing logs. hits songs would be on SB but not HHN.

bleh.

The following are getting airplay on Sirius.

NERD - She wants to move - has been played on US-1 since March 23
Lloyd f/ Ashanti - Southside - on Hot Jamz since Apr 29
Ruben Studdard - What If - on Slow Jamz since Feb 14

The rest are nowhere to be seen!

Ha, someone at Sirius must really read my post. Let's see Smile joined the playlist on May 5 on 44. It's A Wrap joined on May 4 on 51. The other 2 haven't but no big deal. Thanks Sirius. Now, if you guys would just "borrow" my song list for 44 and 50, everything would be great.
