are supplemented by the sprawling cinematic production supplied by one
of Canada’s best kept secrets, Juno Award-winning producer Lantz (Jazz
Cartier), who also executive produced the album. CJ’s passionate new
single poses the ages-old question to a romantic interest – who are you
to judge me? The myriad of sounds heard on this mid-tempo banger sees CJ
flexing his storytelling chops to maximum effect while taking the
listener through his own roller coaster ride of emotions while
navigating a relationship (“I did a lot of things don’t judge me/I just
want you to love me”). Judgement opens up with saucy string samples, is
filled out with scintillating 80s-styled synthesizer elements and is
capped off with bouncy beats, showcasing Lantz’s most sharp and evolved
production output to date.
