Why does my phone play music by itself

Over the last few days at random times my phone has started playing music without me clicking anything. I've never heard this music before, it isn't in my downloads. It plays over anything I'm listening to or watching and I have no clue how to turn it off. I think I have a virus. Any advice?

Ok update, it was Zedge! I downloaded the wallpaper app a day or two ago and I just deleted it and the music has stopped!

The same thing happened to me a few years ago. Woke up one morning to my phone playing music that I did not recognize and did not start playing myself. It took me a while to figure out what was causing it, but as soon as I uninstalled Zedge it never happened again.
