Sometimes it can be cool to use a different reverb for the hook than the verse. For example, if the verse is in a lower octave you might want to use a darker reverb by cutting some high end from the reverb, and if the artists changes to a higher pitch during the hook it can be cool to bring in a brighter reverb by bringing that high end back. It’s a cool effect that can make the mix way more interesting and draw the listener in even more.

There’s a lot more cool tricks you can do in the mix to make hooks more interesting as well like maybe turning up the parallel compression using automation and stuff like that. I like to get really creative when making my hook sound different and interesting compared to the verse. It can create some really great moments within the mix.
