I make elevating music, you make elevator music
The use of “elevating” here ties into the “levitating” imagery above. Also, elevating music in the sense of motivational songs also refers to songs like “Not Afraid,” which his manager Paul Rosenberg described as “uplifting,” while some criticized him for it, calling it soft and “too mainstream”
In contrast to Em’s uplifting music; others make boring, stale music. Elevator music is the unchallenging background music you hear at the store.
