Song Review: “The Reason” by Norman Alexander

Norman Alexander has released the song The Reason. This is an emotional piano ballad sure to please fans of anyone who likes this type of music and anyone going through a rough patch in a relationship. The song is currently Norman Alexander’s most popular song on Spotify, and for very good reason.

“The Reason” starts with piano, with a phone ringing in the background. The ringing phone comes full circle at the end of the song, where an automated voicemail messaging system asks Norman Alexander if he would like to press send on the message. Listeners do not know if he does, ending the song on a cliffhanger. Through the lyrics, listeners will come to realize that Norman Alexander feels at fault for being in a tough situation. For example, he sings, “Look what I’ve done, so much damage” toward the beginning of the song and closes the song with “What do you do when you’re woman’s down/And you’re the reason.”

The most emotional part of “The Reason” comes with the chorus. In it, Norman Alexander belts out lyrics such as “What do you do when your woman’s down, and you’re scared and cold?” He is left wondering how to solve his problems, particularly the ones with his relationship. Instrumentally, the piano is accompanied by soft violins. This chorus, as well as the song in general, is what will make listeners want to check out the rest of Norman Alexander’s discography.

This project effortlessly caught the Hollywood elite’s attention as well. Alexander performed at a TedxWaterStreet event for the second consecutive year, and the host, Terrence J, even commended him, “I’m so excited about Norman. I just listened to [his new single]. It’s an incredible record. It’s called ‘The Reason.’ Stream it. Right now.” 

For this year, Alexander still has a lot in the pipeline for his fans. From the upcoming shows at SOB’s on July 20th and Rockwood Music Hall this summer to another single release – Alexander certainly won’t slow down anytime soon and is ready to conquer the stage!
