I'm using cyanogenmod and it's music player ''Apollo'' is never running it the background so whenever I clear the recent apps it closes, this didn't happen with the Samsungs music player, so how do I keep it running in the background so that it doesn't closes when I clear the recent apps, all help is appreciated, thanks.

The reason that Apollo closes is because it doesn't create a service to play music like the Samsung player, it just creates a background process that is killed when swiped away. When an app creates a service, it will stay active in the background even if swiped away. This isn't something you can fix on your own to the best of my knowledge.
