Songs keep skipping but not pausing?

My Question or Issue

So whenever I play songs they tend to stop for a while and then resume? especially when my phone is turned off but it doesnt say that theyre paused. an example is when i was driving to college this morning it said that the song was played for 7 minutes and it was at the end of the play bar but the song was only a quarter done and it was only a 4 minute long song? I restarted the app multiple times and a couple times it just crashed but for the most part the weird starting and stopping kept continuing. I would skip the song I wanted to listen to but the same problem would happen to the next one, I stated that i restarted the app, i would change playlists (all the playlists that i was trying to listen to are fully downloaded) and i just dont know what to do. And just to state this but this was happening before my phone updated last night.
