Available for download
The song isn't downloaded to your device and can only be played when your device is connected to the Internet. To listen to the song offline, tap or click the Download icon to download it to your device.
You have duplicate versions of the same song in your music library on your computer. Duplicate songs aren't uploaded and synced across your devices.
You have multiple computers that have Sync Library turned on and a song was deleted from one of those computers. Songs that you delete from your music library are immediately removed from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but stay on other associated computers until they're manually deleted.
Apple Music might not be able to upload the song because the song wasn't purchased from the iTunes Store, was purchased using a different Apple ID, or is too large of a file.
The song file is corrupt or there was an error uploading the song. Choose File > Library > Update Cloud Music Library to resolve this. If updating doesn't resolve the issue, try importing a new copy of the song into your music library.
