When discussing the tunes the trainees developed, Justin kept in mind how one track actually stood apart to his better half.
“I was playing a great deal of these concepts and my better half was bopping around your house, and I played this one [song] and she was, like, ‘Ooo what is that?!'” he remembered, informing the class, “So you have something that’s grabbing people’s attention off the bat, so I think keeping their attention with that melody is gonna be—sorry, pun intended—key here.”
In among the clips, Justin likewise opened about author’s block and how his point of view altered when formerly dealing with record manufacturer, Rick Rubin.
“I was having writer’s block on a song and he asked me to play it for him,” the Palmer star shared. “And I said, ‘This is where I am and this is where I’m stuck.’ He said, ‘Well, who are you writing the song for?’ I said, ‘What do you mean? I’m writing the song for myself.’ He goes, ‘No, no, no.'”
Justin included, “We’re all just a make-up of our influences… Look at this and who you’d wanna pitch this record to…it may inspire more melodies.”
