Not a bad song.
Why it may have been rejected:
-it just doesn’t move anywhere for me. It stays the same level and doesn’t really develop any further (change up the melodic line of the 2nd verse, add or remove instruments… or something. Anything to keep the listener more engaged).
-As far as songs with vocals are concerned on AudioJungle, a catchy chorus is hugely important. There are no vocals on the chorus.
-Too much auto-tune.
-AudioJungle is primarily a market for background music. Nothing background about this song, unless you provide a version without vocals – but even then, there isn’t much variety instrumentally.
-The biggest critique from me is this: Often, I don’t know the words that you are singing. It is hard to understand. AudioJungle doesn’t usually accept songs where the vocalist has an accent. I can’t tell for sure here, but it sounds like you have an accent. And maybe that is contributing to the clarity of the lyrics.
Hope I’m helpful. Please keep with it and try again. You’re a good producer.
Sold my first Broadcast License (10 Million) this morning! Super pumped about the new licensing! Thanks, Envato.
Hey guys, this morning I had a sale of the new Broadcast License (10 Million) – which was a $144 sale (of course my commission is less than that). But thanks to the new licensing structure that went live last week, that is the most money I’ve made on 1 song! Of course I’ve had extended license sales of packs before and that has made me more money but I gotta say, I’m very excited about the new license structure!
You’re selling on the wrong market with these tunes. Put together and album of instrumental music and sell it on iTunes or other services like that. AudioJungle is for background music. That is – music that stays in the background. Music here is used in projects to enhance them, not overtake them. Good stock music captures the audiences and draws them in to see the project as a whole, not just the music. Not to say there isn’t a project out there that could use these two tunes or ones like them, but those projects are rare. These songs are too complicated or flashy for a corporate stock audio marketplace like AudioJungle. Tho, AJ 5 or 6 years ago may have taken them. However, it has evolved well and has become the leader. Keep it simple.
Good luck and keep submitting! You’ve got real talent. Hang in there.
Yeah, your track should be $18. I would submit a support ticket about it.
Smart decisions. Thank you, Envato!
