Automatic Downloads not working in iOS 8.1.2

I recently downloaded iOS 8.1.2 and have lost some features that I found very useful. I just downloaded a few songs from iTunes on my iMac and when I went to use my iPhone 5s, I noticed that my new music was not available. So I then went into the iTunes store app and into the downloads section and saw my purchases but they were stuck on "waiting". The only way for me to download them was to delete them from "waiting" and just download them from the cloud. Is this a problem with the new update? or is there a setting that I need to fix? I made sure automatic downloads was on, I signed out of my account and then back in, but no luck - I still had to download from the cloud so it's no longer an "automatic" download.

Any suggestions?
