On my 3rd generation iPad, I am stuck with a song I partially downloaded.


In iTunes>Purchases, I clicked on the cloud next to the song title. It started to download on my iPad. Somehow, I thought the better of it, I didn't need the song on my iPad, so I broke it off. However, now it's there, on my iPad, as some sort of out-of-reach ghost song.


When I go back to iTunes>Purchases, there's no cloud next to the song, but Play. When I choose Play, I'm redirected to Music but the screen goes dark. Nothing happens. I can't swipe to delete the song either. There's a button that seems to indicate it's partially downloaded (next to "Rolling Stones Si..."), but when I click on it, it disappears:

I've tried General>Usage>Music, but it says "No data".
