Stuck on Quiz:Using a Custom Class

Create an instance of the Song class with the designated initializer initWithSinger:(NSString *)s and singer named "James Brown".

Song *popSong =

I have tried many times but still have no clue. Thanks

In this case it would be the same as alloc and initing a class except you would use the designated initializer instead and pass in the NSString argument`.

// basic init
Song *popSong = [[Song alloc] init];

// designated initializer
Song *popSong = [[Song alloc] initWithSinger:@"James Brown"];

I had this issue as well, it was driving me nuts.

This is what I had. Song *popSong = [[Song alloc]initWithSinger:@"James Brown"];

I kept getting marked as incorrect because there was no space after the first close square bracket.

Try song instead of Song.
