It's a good mix between a trap style track and an inspirational one as well. Your flow is good and it's a song that we all can relate to. We've all been there wanting to kick our boss' ass and I'm sure this comes from a place of frustration at a day job. The Future reference in the 2nd verse was slick and this sounds like an improvement from your previous material. This is a solid single, I think you have something you can push for a while with this one.
The video is captivating, the mixture of dance with the underlying message of a love song is great. I love the soft vocals with the piano melody, it all blends together for a great song. Everything about this is beautiful and you stay within your vocal range, not making anything too complicated. Great work!
The beat feels liquid like, like waves crashing against the beach which is the perfect vibe for this song. I love how it's mellow and it feels sad at times. By about the second chorus it's inevitable that I was singing "I'll catch you on another wave". It's a good and catchy song with a message that feels like pain. It's relatable for many people I imagine. Great work on this one
I dig the concept but the Ewing references is dated, would have sounded better with an athlete that's currently playing in the NBA. The beat is cool, it fits the party vibe with the claps, drums, and synths. The mixing on the verses could have been better, the second verse sounds a bit dull due to that. Energy is good and it flows nice throughout. This is an ok track but it could be a lot better with some minor tweaks of mixing and references.
The beat is beautiful, love the vocals on the hook as well. Flow is great and the family playing into the lyrics was a nice touch. This was a strong song and if it's not the single, it should be a strong candidate for it. You were personable and it made me feel like I was getting to know you with nearly every lyric. Great track!
I like the beat, it sounds country but is more hip-hop than anything. I think it's the strings that give me that feeling. The flow is a slow drawl to fit with the song and I like that you're not outrapping the beat. Lyrically it's good too and the message is simple. This sounds like something that I would post on my site. Only thing that bugged me was that it's the clean version but that's a minor thing. Good work!
I dig the flow and the beat. It feels like it's from the 90's with the sound but like it's not from the 90's at the same time. Lyrically I like it too and while the hook is standard "work hard, my girls better than yours" it fits the song. This is an overall good song and I think it has replay value on it.
Takes forever for the beat to actually kick in, which got on my nerves cause I kept waiting on it to drop and it was still the same sample looping. I like the slow pace of it, sounds like a singer or a rapper could hop on it and do something. The drums could be a bit harder, seems a little weak at times. Would recommend having a breakdown earlier than the filtered sample because hearing the same sample looped like that for close to 4 minutes can get mundane fast after a play or two of the track
Feels like the instrumental is overpowering the vocals, could use a better mix in that regard. Love the the beat and the concept of the song, sounds like a futuristic beach where people go to breakup. I like the singing on here too, feel a lot of people are trying to get away with this style while not being able to sing but it sounds like you might have a vocal range to use for other tracks. Good work!!
Wow, I'm impressed. At first I thought the flow was going to be too much but when you switched it and called it the "unicycle flow" I had a good laugh. The beat is nice and different, good especially since the majority of beats are sounding the same. This is just a good overall lyrical track and the video is good as well. The shadow scenes are the best part of the video for sure. The song is a great first single and I think you have a strong case to get noticed from it by several people.
The flow on this is unique. I liked the structure of the song and the concept as well. The melody is strong with the chimes. This would be a good first single and a good way for people to get to know your music to explore your sound more. Very good overall.
The production isn't very good, seems cheesy for the style of the song. Lyrically it's good and the singing sounds nice on the chorus. The breakdown is cool too, I dig the backing harmonies on that. It begins to grow on you once you get all the way through the song but I'm not sure if I would lead with this as the first single. Overall I dig the concept.
I dig the instrumental of this, it's light and dark all at once. The vocals are better on this than the video submission you sent over. It's sad and I'm sure it will connect with someone but for me it didn't hit that personal level. I like it. The filters on the vocals can get unbearable at times since it's like that the entire way through but there's not enough vocals to really complain about it. It has a good balance of instrument breaks and vocals throughout so that's good too.
