    Certain apps will automatically open and remain in RAM, depending on usage patterns and how the apps are prioritized due to their code. See these articles about how RAM works in Android:

    RAM: What it is, how it's used, and why you shouldn't care | Android Central

    If you never use Google Play Music, you could go to Settings>Apps>All​ (or the App Manager, if a Samsung device), select Google Play Music, and Disable. This will prevent it from opening, but will not uninstall it.

    It may not be the app itself that's running, it may be one process in the app. There's a difference. Android needs some processes to run all the time, and some to be running if you're running an app that needs that process, even though it resides in a different app. It's not very intuitive to non-system-programmers.
