General Comments

Awesome song! The hook melody is very strong and memorable. The lyrics are simple and meaning full and sung with passion. Some parts of the song are stronger than others- and the beginning seems to lead up to an anticipated level- but it almost seems slightly anti climatic.
the chords are nice I really enjoy the background singing adds a nice touch and some depth. I feel this song has great potential and it maybe a matter of taking somethings in and out to give a highlight to some areas in the hook.
The mix is OK. the overall mix could be fine tuned. It is very important to get your listeners attention right away and keep through out the song
So mix; melody, and lyrics should be attention grabbers!
Great work!
Voice has a very clean tone and is nice to listen to- easy and soft to the ear.
Reminds me of 90's or early 2000's r&b that everyone would enjoy to listen to.

Thank you for submitting your song and it's been an honor to be given the opportunity to review.

Artist's Submitted Question:

How can I get this song to an R&B artist at a major label ? I would gladly collaborate. I am Seventy-two and running out of time, and I can't win a Grammy by myself. Can you help me Cortez ?

Pro's Answer/Comments:

As far as that goes- I do offer a fee based consultation and we can definitely talk more in depth about how to go about getting this song out there and utilized effectively. I think there is great potential. If you're interested in that we can set that up apart from Broadjam. Email me at Robotcitystudio@gmail.com so we can continue this conversation there and separately

Hope to hear from you!

Cortez
