It's never been possible to add your own music to the Quik Desktop app. Perhaps you had used Studio or the Quik mobile app. Each song in the Quik desktop app has it's own dat file associated with it. It's this file that tells the program how to synchronize the video to the music. You will not be able to use your own music as it wont have the needed dat file.

The Quik mobile app will allow you to use your own music as it uses a an algorithm to determine synchronization. Your other option will be to use a desktop editor like iMovie, DaVinci Resolve, VSDC video editor, or HitFilm Express. They are all free. Load the video made by the Quik Desktop editor, mute the audio from the video, and then add your song.
