Default new android user question!!

Hey everyone! I just switched from the iphone 5 to the galaxy s4, and so far I am very excited I decided to do so! But friends of mine also told me something I could do with this phone that actually id love to figure out. My question is.. am I able to download music from a website browser directly to my phone? For instance, I go to hotnewhiphop.com and when I find music I want to download, ill press download, and the song will download its just that after the download is finished when I click on what I downloaded it says can not open file or file is not found or something along those lines. So am I missing something? Am I doing something wrong? Or is it just not capable of doing this? Thanks for any help in advance!

It will be on the phone but the music player maybe isnt reading from the right place to play it. The music is probably in the Downloads folder on the internal sd.
I have the s3 and it came with a file explorer app called My Files so does the s4 have that?

Try moving them to your music folder. What music app are you using. (Some only search certain folders for music files.) I use Poweramp Pro which always me to select the locations to search for music. Also, you might want to title the MP3 file with the title of the song.
