SDCard content change should trigger MediaScanner, so the changes could appears in apps using Android Media database.

Add a music file, with a supported encoding, in SDCard.
Launch Music, verify the file is here and can be listened to.
Delete the file using, in example, Files app or MTP (computer).
Check again in Music app, file should not appears again.
