How about downloading songs from YouTube? Here are the following steps:
Convert the YouTube Video to MP3 Format
Before listening to YouTube songs on your device, you must convert the music file from video to audio format. However, the approach may not be as straightforward as clicking the “download” button because YouTube does not have one. Instead, you may use the services of a YouTube-to-MP3 converter.
First, go to the YouTube video that you want to convert to an audio file. Open Youtube in Safari, find video and tap and hold video title to open context menu. Select "Copy" action to copy video url to the clipboard. You can also click “Share” to copy the video link.
Next, go to a YouTube-to-MP3 converter website and paste the URL link in the text box. Click “Convert” and wait for the operation to complete. The website will then provide you with a link that you click to download the converted audio file.
The file is usually converted to MP3 format, although there are other audio formats available. Once you have downloaded the file, you have the choice to store the file in your iCloud or Local Files.
When transferring files from one Apple device to another, you may use the Airdrop function to share the downloaded file to other devices.
Add the Song to the Evermusic App
If you do not have the Evermusic app, download it from the App Store. The app is free to use and has several features like a cloud player, equalizer, audio tag editor, and file manager.

Under copyright law, you cannot copy, reproduce, or re-sell a protected product without permission from those entities. Additionally, downloading a copyrighted product without paying for it is a crime.
Copyrights also protect YouTube songs and videos. Although you may download songs from YouTube, you must also understand the risks and costs.
However, if the copyright provisions allow you to download and use the YouTube video in your preferred manner, feel free to do so.
For example, there is royalty-free music available online that you may download for personal use.
