You can absolutely select a preferred tempo for your song! In your song submission, you'll have the opportunity to select the tempo you'd like. If you select "No Preference", the artist will use their best judgement by using your story to decide the tempo. If you have a specific tempo of a song you love, you can refer to that in your submission.
For example: I want a love song with a tempo like "You're Still The One" by Shania Twain.
You can review all of the tempo options we offer and how we define them below:
A slower tempo has an intimate feeling and lets the lyrics breathe. It's ideal for a slow dance or ballad.
A moderate tempo has a balanced feeling as it is neither fast nor slow. It works for many occasions and songs.
A faster tempo has plenty of energy while still packing a meaningful punch. It's ideal for celebrations or anthems.
