This question already has an answer here:

In my samsung galaxy s4, i am playing my youtube playlists like 10 or 20 musics and when i switch off the screen then the music stops.

How can i play forever the music even the screen is on or off?

For example:

1) i am in Gym

2) i open the youtube music playlist and let it play by switching off my screen and head phone is on

3) now when i am doing my workout the music is stoopped

How can i keep it play forever unless i manually close it.

It's not currently possible but it should be soon. According to AndroidPolice background audio is coming in a future release of the YouTube app.
