Dropbox keeps all your files securely stored, up to date, and accessible from any device. Back up files in the cloud, share photos and videos, and more. You can upload files and folders to your Dropbox account on dropbox.com and the Dropbox desktop app and mobile app from your phone or tablet.
If a video or audio file won’t play on dropbox.com or the Dropbox mobile app, it may be in a file format that Dropbox doesn't support.
If your file has one of the following extensions, it will preview as an audio file: .aac, .air/.aiff, .m4a, .m4r, .mp3, .oga, .ogg, .wav, .wma.
However, the Apple Music songs you downloaded has .m4p extension, which is not in above list, so the songs won't be previewed as an audio file.
If your video or audio file won’t play in the Dropbox mobile app, make sure you have a third-party app on your mobile device that can play that file format. So this means you can't play the Apple Music songs stored in Dropbox without Music app.
