Default Data being used while Wi-Fi on

So I just realized that my phones been using tons of mobile data. I was under the impression that Wi-Fi supersedes data if both are enabled? I tested it out and it's still using mobile data while Wi-Fi is on.

Anyone know what the deal is or if one of my Wi-Fi settings is causing it?

I'm on Verizon S4 GPE ROM. 4.4.3.

Try going to settings/data usage and see what's using the data. Also, while WiFi is on your mobile days shouldn't be being used.

There's a few things : play music, Facebook, g+, etc. Most of it is music.

Strangely, I have Play Music set to stream, etc. Only on Wi-Fi.
