Can you share one music production tip?
When people use acapellas, they need to make sure the vocal melody matches the song melody. Syncing is very important. If I give you the vocals and you don't place them in the place I recorded them, then the song can come out terrible. I have plenty of examples where people just butchered a great song. Also, let the singer know if you plan to use his or her vocals in a song that could have vulgar or sexual comments. I was surprised once and I had to remove my name from the song because of it.

I listen to a song melody and see if any vocal melody comes to mind. It may take 1-2 days. Once a melody comes to mind, I record it so I can remember. After, I write the first verse to the lyrics. I submit a demo to the artist so they can approve of the direction I'm taking. If it is, I continue. If it is not, we discuss the ideas they had.
