Can avi files contain a virus?
Can mp3 file contain an executable virus?
I mean .mp3 files only (not .mp3.exe , not an .exe renamed to .mp3 and smtg like that).
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
I suppose it's POSSIBLE to contain a virus, but it would have to be specifically engineered to exploit a flaw in a specific media player, or in the OS itself when it generates a preview (if it does). Since it usually just shoves the data through a player, I can't see this happening.
The music player doesn't compile or run any type of executable commands on the OS. So even if a .mp3 had a virus, it can't be run/executed. So, the answer is no, it doesn't contain an executable virus (of course, if you wanted to write a music player which could also execute that would be a different matter :) but I don't think it would be popular ).
