“I Gotta Stop” is one of those musical products that were birthed from his previous experience with his ex, and he found a way to channel those emotions into this musical masterpiece with stylistic roots in alternative rock.
The instrumentation here is quite relentless, and the lyricism is bold, delivered with such a powerful punch as Raja packs an appropriate punch and drives the emotions with his self-assured voice that is such a delight to listen to.
