For use on Windows I use Audacity using 'Effect/Change Speed...'. You can Export the modified file (.mp3 etc) for use in any audio program. I use Audacity a TON for changed keys for my rock band and church bands. For example I'll modify a song in Audacity, then use VLC to listen and loop certain sections (A-B) as needed.
For an Android device, I've been using this one while away from home (at practice etc). You just need a local copy (on your device) of the song you want. Music Speed Changer

Nineworks referred to Ronin which is the maker of ASD. And yes it does exactly that--slow down but maintain the pitch. But it does a whole lot more than that. You can change the pitch which is handy when you want to raise or lower something a step. Also you can loop a section.
Basically it's the tool I would have killed to have back in the say when I started with lifting needles on vinyl.
I don't know about Android, but for Windows, Audacity is, as the kids say, "da Bomb"!
Audacity is freeware and does just about anything you want for audio. Change tempo while holding pitch, hold tempo while changing pitch (great for transposing). That's just the tip of the iceberg, it's an amazing program. You will find it useful for many other functions too. For all it's versatility, it's not too demanding on RAM, etc. Highly recommend!!!
If you can find the tune on Youtube, the playback speed control slows it down without a pitch change. The only drawback is if you go slower than 50%, the MPEG copmpression on the original data file causes some pretty stiff flanging.
