When I first heard it, I thought it was a new track from Drake. It's catchy, I like the tempo but I'm conflicted with the originality of the sound because you have a nice voice but your sound is too familiar. Thank you for your submission. 

SD Hox

Nice track. Smooth vocals and well produced. The hypnotic rhythm makes a great late night track. Thanks for sharing and I will do the same.

For a guy named Ronnie Lott, I thought this would hit harder - but that's not a problem at all ;) 

You're smooth man. The vocal production is on point in a Ricky Reed kinda way but with a more sensual feel and the ambient melodies fit right into the urban dream pop pocket. Great for late night burning right before a move is made. Good stuff.

On one hand, I'd like to see more variety in the song form. You stick with a consistent A section throughout, with the only difference between verse and chorus (other than the rap bridge) being the topline and lyrics within.... But on the other hand I like the hypnotic atmosphere created by the consistency in melody.

Overall, I'm really digging it. It's clear you have a strong grasp on your style, and that's just about the most important thing an up and coming artist can have in the ole repertoire.

Kris Kross by Ronnie Lott

Travis Keller

I dig this... I like the rapper, he's dope. And the beat was cool, didn't blow my mind... could be better but I did dig it. It's cool. Kinda reminds me of Travi$ Scott but this dude can rap better. But similar vibe or feeling. Although I could do without the lines about how much money you have or are spending. The bands. That shit is so tired. I know everyone does it so i get it, but first off i can't relate and second its boring. But all in all I give this an A-.

I'd like to hear what else you have going on... email me some tracks @

Thanks man,
keep on!

I run @DailyDose ( so hit me up! Best of luck.

Andrea Young

So well done.  First class production, arrangement, vocals, mixing, mastering, everything.  Do you have a radio edit that isn't explicit?  Send a high quality mp3 to me at and I'll include on playlists and shows.  The lyrics are a bit high school for me but doesn't matter, this deserves to be heard.  Thanks for your submission, a treat for my ears, good luck with your music!

Morgan Crozier

This is really well done. Very reminiscent of Drake, hopefully you see that as a good thing, as his sound is about as hot as it gets right now. I feel like the mix/master could be a little tighter, but aside from that, no complaints.

On "Call On Me," the latest musical offering from Ronnie Lott, it's impossible not to hear echoes of contemporary references like Drake and The Weeknd. However, despite drawing upon this near-ubiquitous pop culture icons, Lott distills a sound entirely his own in the process, immediately more accessible and polished than his peers. From a production perspective, "Call On Me" is equal parts hypnotic, disorienting synths and lock-tight beats. Overall, the end result is clean and well produced without any of the excessively glossy artifice found on the majority of current Top 40 rap songs.
