    Thank you so much, sorry to be annoying but can you break that structure up into bar counts. I was getting 24 bars for the verse idk if I was going crazy or he is using a different bar count for all his sections

    ^ you should do that...if you don't practice listening and feeling out structures how are you going to get good? Oh wait, you won't.

    'cept of course what he is asking is for confirmation of what he has already done - nothing at all wrong with asking that particular question.

    I deliberately did not count the bars as I was focused on the structure rather than bar counts - particularly as I was doing this as a one listen exercise.

    Section Bars Time Beats Tempo (bpm)
    Intro 0:00-0:37
    Verse rap 8 0:37-0:50 32 147.69
    Chorus rap 8 0:50-1:03 32 147.69
    Verse - KP 16 1:03-1:28 64 153.60
    pre-Chorus - KP 8 1:28-1:41 32 147.69
    Chorus - KP 16 1:41-2:06 64 153.60
    Break - interlude 2 2:06-2:09 8 160.00
    Verse - KP 8 2:09-2:22 32 147.69
    pre-Chorus - KP 8 2:22-2:35 32 147.69
    Chorus - KP 16 2:35-3:00 64 153.60
    Bridge - KP 9 3:00-3:28 36 77.14
    Verse rap 16 3:28-3:54 64 147.69
    Chorus - KP 16 3:54-4:19 64 153.6
    chorus - repeat with extraterrestrial sung in places 16 4:19-4:45 64 147.69
    Outro 10 4:45-5:00 40 160.00

    Halve everything if you believe the drum beat is quavers and semi-quavers (8ths and 16ths) rather than crotchets and quavers (1/4's and 8ths)....
