    Settings > iTunes and App Store > Show All Music : Turn Off.

    If you don't do this then all your purchases will show in your music app even if you haven't downloaded them yet and if you happen to click on one it will play via cellular data. Once you turn that setting off then the only thing showing in your music app will be what you have actually downloaded to your device.
