What Is A Hit Song?
I feel that a hit song is a song that has a nice rhythm, melody, drum beat, instruments, and lyrics that tells a story. A hit song is everything you wanted to say in that song. The lyrics has to be heartfelt and the artist who sings or raps has to sound good. A hit record should make you feel good, dance or think about a significant other. As an artist I strive to make you feel like some of my favorite artists has made me feel.
As an artist I strive to make hit records; whether it’s an RNB record or a Hip Hop record. Some R&B examples are Michael Jackson-Billie Jean, Stevie Wonder- That Girl, and Usher You Remind Me, and Mario- Let Me Love You. Some Hip Hop examples are Puff Daddy- Sastify You, Diddy- I Need A Girl Pt. 1, Diddy I Need A Girl Part 2 and 50 Cent 21 Questions.
My records will be a crowd favorite and seen as a classic 10 years from now. What does a hit song mean to you?
Here’s a perfect example of what I feel a hit R&B/Hip Hop song is. Check it out below and let me know what you think. Peace!
About my song “I’m Handsome”. I ain’t gonna front. I wasn’t always confident. I use to be insecure of how I look because I had big lips. LOL I know it’s funny. I use to tell my mother about it and my mother said I was handsome. I had no problem with girls. They liked me but I was still insecure. I even thought about getting surgery to minimize my lips. LOL. On top of that, my freshman year in high school I had to get stitches on the right side of my lip because I had got into a fight with brother and a security guard. Any way as I got older I notice more people were calling me handsome. My teachers loved me. They said that I had a handsome face. Also girls were taking more notice in me. This boost my confidence level to new heights. As time went on I learned from my mother that being Handsome wasn’t just a look but a feeling as well. It was a state of mine. You see “I’m Handsome” isn’t me just being conceited. It’s not about that. It’s about the feeling of being handsome and confident in yourself. I speak my truth in my music and I hope you can relate too; cause I’m Handsome.
