THE PRODUCTION

DJ Qubegram did an extensive work in the sequencing of the beat of this song. Attention was given to every part of the song. The Intro, body and outro of the song was given special attention. This can be clearly seen in the uniqueness in the different percussion lines of the chorus and verses. There is also a clear attention given to the transition.

A song which is originally an RnB song has Qubegram mix elements of Reggae, Soft Rock and some orchestral strings. The transition drum rolls are basically Reggae. The chorus rhythmic keys was played with a basic grand piano but was played like the strings of a soft rock music. The orchestral strings was used to provide an underlying sound colour. In all the song is a total package of good professionalism and a settled heart in making music.
