We know that there are a ton of music players for Android. In fact, a simple music player search will display a seemingly infinite list of music player options. What seeks me about such a search, though, is the recommendations are far from reliable. Some developers manage to deliver audio players with a clean UI (obviously following Google’s material design guidelines) but not one that stands out from the rest.
In today’s article, we turn our eyes to not just cool music players for Android, but the best ones that have support for Lyrics. Sure, you can swipe up QuickLyric or Musixmatch when a track is playing, but what will you do when you’re offline, for example?
This list combines paid applications and free ones because sometimes, the paid apps really are the best. They all have a beautiful interface and a variety of customization options for offline music, theme, playback, lyrics, and volume.
1. Music Player – MP3 Player
Music Player – MP3 Player is a stylish, powerful and fast music player for playing music offline (locally). It is designed to allow users to play music with the best sounds without draining their battery.
Among its several features are included 30+ music themes, a powerful beats equalizer, a built-in MP3 cutter for making ringtones, drive mode, support for folders and wearables, and support for 35+ languages.

It features a modern Material design with built-in 6-band equalizer + bass boost, gapless playback, automatic artwork downloading, customizable widgets, Last.fm Scrobbling, embedded lyrics support, a sleep timer, and tons of theme options.
Shuttle Music Player builds on the strengths of Google Play Music and goes an extra mile to add features that users are bound to enjoy.

Just like Black Player, you can embed LRC files yourself. Unlike it though, the lyrics are not synchronized and you must scroll yourself. On the plus side, you can search for lyrics with Musixmatch or any other supported alternative. GoneMAD is not free but you can try it out for 14 days free of charge.
Like I mentioned earlier, there are way more music players you can use. But not all of them have a functional feature that my collection shares, offline lyrics.
