1) Media Utilities is your friend! You can install it from the Play Store here and find a tutorial on how to use it with Zooper here.
2) If you use a custom launcher like Apex, Nova, Lightning, etc. they often provide shortcut actions to certain functions like opening the app drawer. You can use those via the OnTap action on either a widget or individual modules so they are used when you tap on the Zooper widget.

I don't own any Samsung Devices so I can't really help you out much. Two things though: does the native music player show up when you open Media Utilities? If not, you might have to add it manually. Also try it with Play Music to see if Media Utilities correctly works with Zooper (Play Music should definitely work and is always a good way to test things)

Hey kwerdenker.. I got it working finally cuz of your advice. I removed the native media player from Media Utilities that wasnt working. Then I had Google Play Music work in zooper.. But one thing doesnt work.. The cover art doesnt show up. Any suggestions?

If you followed the tutorial, this shouldn't be a problem but just to cover all bases: did you make sure the"Make coverart available" option in MU is set? Could you also please post a screenshot of the advanced parameter settings for the bitmap module you use for the coverart?

This looks exactly as I would expect it to be.
I'm sorry to say this but I currently don't have any further ideas. Though I have heard other people where it didn't worked one day and suddenly started to work the next. So maybe you are lucky and it will resolve itself. Other than that, you might have to file a bug with the Zooper guys to get this resolved.
