Market Potential

Market Potential is the most significant indicator in your report of the likely commercial success of your track. It combines both your Track Rating and your Passion Rating to provide you with a single aggregate score that predicts how commercially successful your track might be within your market. Your track’s Market Potential score is calculated as a percentage between 0% and 85%. For the best odds of chart success, an artist should shoot for a score of 65% or better.

The Market Potential classification indicates where the track is positioned among over 100,00 other tracks.

Chart success assumes a reasonable promotional budget. It should also be noted that the relative success of a single is also directly related to the existing profile of an artist.

Track Rating

Your Track Rating is a weighted average of all the ratings your track received from our reviewers. This number reflects how highly reviewers thought of your track, but does not necessarily reflect your track’s market potential.

    Beginning instrumentals are good. Voice is powerful and smooth. Song is a little slow. Violin is too strong it makes it hard to hear what she is saying. As the song progresses her voice seems to be really high pitched and almost annoying, it may be the instrumentals are clashing.

    Is it just me or does this singer sound a little like Dove Cameron? That is the first thought that came to my mind. This song is really good, the message is positive and it projects loudly for listeners to hear. The instrumentals don't overbear the vocals and it is evenly balanced. It's such a simple tune, and yet it is so fun to listen too. This is a good song, I would recommend it and probably buy it.

    The song is a decent song and with the right production it has potential to be better. The artist has good vocals and has the talent to do a lot with her vocals. The artist has a lot to offer the music world with her voice she just needs better production.

    At first the song starts out a little strange with the tune but the lyrics are great. Just throws off a first impression with the beginning tune. However it picks up to a wonderful blend. The lyric really go with this tune and not too slow or too fast for the song.

    I love her voice it is different and with music you can go a long way with being different. Her vocals are perfect you can feel every word she is saying. The instrumental is great for this song and every thing is played at the right time.

    I like the sweet and sentimental sounding instrumentals in the instrumentals. I wish the intro would have gone on a few extra seconds. I love the sound of the vocals with the vocals. The recording quality is great. I like the different vocal ranges of the vocals. It sounds really beautiful. Everything hits the emotions and it sounds beautiful together. I like the mix of the guitar with violins. They sound great together with their chords. This song has great potential. I like that the violin goes along with the melody of the song. I would not change anything about the song. It has great potential in the music industry. I like the vocal break with instrumentals at around 2:20

    The beat is really slow but the choice of instruments used was unique and cool. The vocals are kinda bad because they sound pitched. This genre of music isnt very good and not many people listen to it. I think that the lyrics are really cheesy.

    I don't really like this song. Although it does have a meaning to the lyrics, which is a bonus, I don't like the beat. The beat doesn't go along with the lyrics. The beat and vocals get very interesting and impressive when you get towards the middle of the song.

    This singer has a very rare voice when it comes to singing. The background sounds as if shes in the forest thinking to herself. The music adding on during the chorus brings the beautiful vibe in the music. I love her voice! I would definitely listen go her again.

    Very mellow, similar to something between hasley and alessa clare. Pretty i like the slow drum hit and the guitar. I think the song could benefit from a stronger piano part and it sounds kind like its been preformed live with itsn't necessarily a bad thing.

    I love her voice. Personally i love the lyrics and the message given to me. this song makes me think about the things i simply look past in life instead of appreciating whats there. family friends and the blessings i have been given. the life i've been given and it honestly makes me want to go out and explore lol. the instrumental made it more so happy and moved me in a spiritual way. this song was really uplifting to me.

    The guitar is relaxing and smooth. The voice is beautiful, but it isn't a kind of song that I would like. The background vocals compliment the singers voice. The track sounds well produced, but I'm not a fan of the content in this type of music.

    I like the vocals. Very unique. Maybe a slightly lower key would be better. More instruments. I think it would be better with legitimate instruments. The vocals would go very nice with real ones. I like the sound of the voice but it seems like it goes up a bit too high for the vocal range. It still sounds good but it sounds a lot better in a lower range.

    This song is very beautiful. I think it would be even prettier with piano incorporated in it. The lyrics are sweet. I think the addition of more backup vocals would make the song overall more powerful. The song is a little bit on the long side.

    i don't really like it. the beat doesn't fit the tone of the voice and to slow for beat at some parts. It's just a bad song overrall and i dont really know what genre this would be, only thing i like is the singers voice.

    The song initally has me thinking about an instrument you would hear on a street in a market place in India. I would idenify the song as belonging to the genre of alternative blues maybe. the woman that is singing as a very angelic voice. Her voice is carried so softly by the soft music made by the piano and guitar. I am sorry to say she can not hit the high notes though. but it's ok. not every one can.

    I really enjoyed the lyrics. I feel like a lot of peopke could connect to the words. it had a really good beat. it had a different sound than what i expected. She had a good voice but almost too much auto tune was used.

    This song has a really relaxed beat and it is very smooth. I sounds like it is high productions. I like the vocals but I even at a low volume I feel like the artist it screaming at me. It's a little cat scratchy sounding. I guess this song just isn't for me but it isn't a bad song either.

    Yes I did enjoy this song actually. It sounded great, and she is a very young talented singer. I really enjoyed the instruments and beats in background, and they supported her vocals well. The chorus was really well put together and great! Her vocals are amazing! I overall enjoyed it, and would recommend others to listen to this song!

    The beginning is interesting it sounds kind of Indian. Woah i didn't expect the song to have this type of style. I like the violin part! I LOVE VIOLINS. Her vocals are really amazing they flow with the music her different pitched make it even better

    I really like this song a lot. The instruments are amazing. The beat is perfect. It is very rhythmic. The vocals, however, are very nasaly. The artist sounds like she is singing from her nose. I am not impressed with that. Overall, I love this song. In my opinion, I think if the artist didn't sing through her nose so much, this song would make my top 10. The lyrics are perfect by the way. Good song. Good work. Sounds like the production was good

    I think it is a nice song to chill out too. I liked the vocals in this song and I think despite it not being my favorite type of music I would still listen too it. The only think I didn't find too impressive were the lyrics... but that of course can be forgiven

    I like the guitar melody in the introduction. This song has an eighties vibe that I like. I like how the violin doubles what she is singing. I like the suspended backing vocal notes. I will give this song a nine out of ten for being unique.

    not impressed. the intro is too long and just boring. the vocals instrumental don't blend as much as they could. they need to really work better on the arrangement. the singers voice overpowers the music to much not allowing anyone to really enjoy the music. if they were to maybe lift the background music's volume up it could greatly improve the overall quality of this soundtrack

    The beat is a bit slow, yet engaging. Her voice is very strong and clear. The audio is interesting because it seems a bit faint, yet it works with her voice. The audio is unoriginal, which is beneficial. The lyrics are creative, and her notes range throughout the song. I think this artist has potential to make it big one day. She is very creative and professional I find it calming and relaxing.

    The underlying instrumentals are very nice, with the possible exception of the light techno element (which doesn't seem to quite fit). However, I do NOT like the vocals. For some reason, although I cannot pin down exactly what, the vocals really annoy me. Something is just slightly off. But other than that, not bad!

    very calming and relaxing instrumental. Vocals are good and seem maybe a little bit auto toned. good flow and seems like a song that some people would like. not really into it. Lyrics are good and production seems very good with overlapping of vocals. overall not a bad song.

    The start of the song is very very 80's in regards to the beat. The singer sounds like they are from that time period as well. I don't really know what genre or time period this song is from, but definitely designed for my tastes.

    She has a great voice and I get a great sense of artistry from this song. I don't really feel like I could hear this on the radio, this song in particular I mean. This song is just too lackadaisical for me, I could listen to it while I fall asleep. But I can't dance to it, I can't really sing to it, and it's melody doesn't getting my adrenaline pumping, which just leaves me sleepy and wanting more.

    This is a swaying beat and the instrumentals go back and forth as the vocals do. I can hear this on a movie such as the Twilight Saga. It sings, its light and nurturing to the listener. You can hear the clarity. It was well produced.

    First I very much like the rhythm structure of the song. I am not sure about the lyrics. They seem to be off mood to me. Distracting rather than adding to the message. The melody is very good, all of the stresses are in the right place.

    This song is great. The artist has the most beautiful singing voice. She really can hit all the notes. The beat lines up perfectly with her voice and the song is really on point. I love music that comes from the heart and not doing it for the money.

    The intro is comforting and gives you a hope or sense. Lovley voice and tranquility to the sound. Its takes you to a different world for a moment gives you that feeling. Lyrical good words inspirational maybe could fall into maybe a christian song. The beats and overall sound is great.

    The song was too slow for me, lost me in her lyrics. The song seems like a depressing song. The instruments were beautiful just didn't fit the voice for this song. Overall not my song choice to keep a listener to continue to listen i believe needs more cheerful

    The song begins with an acoustic guitar being played for the introduction and then the gentle sound of a lovely female voice. I really like the fragile and delicate side to her voice as well as the added string instruments. I also like how her becomes more powerful during the chorus and I would like to hear more by this artist.

Definitons

Weightings

The better a Reviewer is at judging the broader consensus rating of the track, the higher weighting their opinion receives. When calculating the Overall Market Potential, each Reviewer's track rating is weighted in accordance with their influence. For example a track rating from a highly respected Reviewer, who has proven to be accurate at identifying strong or weak tracks in that genre, can carry a much heavier influence than a track rating from a newer Reviewer.

Reviewers/Sample Group

This is the group of music consumers who have listened to the track online and left their track rating and written review. They are sourced from our sister site, Slicethepie and they do not know they are conducting market research when they hear the track, which helps to achieve honest and objective responses. The sample group is selected at random and screened by their age, gender, location and genre preferences. A diverse sample group of reviewers is required to form a "smart crowd" which ensures an accurate Market Potential. See "Wisdom of Crowds" below.

Wisdom of Crowds

Wisdom of Crowds is a proven methodology that large groups of ordinary people organised under the right conditions (a "smart crowd"), outperform small groups of experts in making decisions and predictions. It is not new. It is the science behind Google and decision-making in some of the largest companies in the world. It has been proven time and again that collective wisdom consistently surpasses the experts. It also means that SoundOut can guarantee a high level of accuracy with results.

The 4 conditions required to form a "smart crowd" that delivers an accurate result are:

  1. Diversity of opinion: A sample group of reviewers with many different points of view makes better decisions than one where everyone has the same information.
  2. Independence: The reviewers' opinions are not influenced by others.
  3. Decentralization: Answers are given by individual reviewers based on their own local and specific knowledge rather than by a central person.
  4. Aggregation: There is a way of accurately measuring the sample group's collective answer.
