Review: "Hey, Have It Your Way" - Kahone Concept

Relationships can be difficult to navigate sometimes, requiring many sacrifices to keep people happy. Whether it's a platonic, familial, or romantic relationship, all relationships require work and commitment, leaving us feeling like we're giving up a lot to make someone happy. Ben Kahone addresses this in his track, "Hey, Have It Your Way." The artist elaborated on the meaning behind the song, stating, "Relationships can be hard. Whether it's a romantic, friendly, or family relationship, we all at some point have felt like we are constantly giving up what we want to make someone else happy. The irony of it is the person we feel we give so much to, often times feels the same way about us. Yeah, yeah, we shouldn't be keeping score but sometimes it just feels great to complain. We do things for those we love, because we love them, but it doesn't mean we can't give them a hard time along the way. This song is part of my plan to write, produce and release a song a month for 12 months. At the end it will be released as a collective debut album called "The Greatest Hits". Turns out it's a lot like pizza places that says "Best Pizza In Town," nobody is going around verifying."

Having an essence of timelessness, "Hey, Have It Your Way" combines elements of '80s pop with a fresh, modern sound. The track is energetic, being driven by a disco-esque beat, reminiscent of "four-on-the-floor" rhythms. Kahone delivers infectious melodies with finesse, making it a track listeners can play on repeat. The nostalgic nature of the song gives "Hey, Have It Your Way" a quality that would appeal to many ages and generations. With an upbeat and playful soundscape, "Hey, Have It Your Way" has a happy and carefree feeling to it that makes it addictive and charming.

Based in Pittsburgh, pop artist/producer Ben Kahone is the face behind the Kahone Concept. The artist was originally Ben Orrvick, legally changing his name to Kahone to pursue his artistic vision. He taught himself a variety of instruments throughout his childhood, beginning his music journey. Kahone started producing and recording tracks independently, swearing he would never "make music with anybody but Mr. Wonderful (NBC's Shark Tank star Kevin O'Leary)." Having an impressive and growing catalog, some of the Kahone Concept's popular tracks include "Maybe," "In One Ear and Right Out the Other," "Shaking Out My Problems," "I Can Do It Better Than You," and "I Like You but Don't Talk."
