Question Range Help

For a long time I have been trying to reach the intro note to this song, and every time my voice just dies out when I go for it, occasionally there are moments when I do hit it but its not very often, I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips on how to hit it and stay consistent with it. I believe the note is a F5, I know I can hit E5 but after that my voice starts to crack, help please?

Good song choice btw.
To start out, make sure you do A LOT of vocal warm ups.
Pronounce EAH
and EE
and AH
more frequent.
Warm up in the higher range, descant.
If that doesn't help, try drinking warm tea, then do the warm ups.
I can't hit that note myself, unless I'm singing with my throat which sounds weird.
And another thing, when hitting this note, tighten the muscles that are inclosed around your uvula, as though you're blocking off your airway, but let some air pass through so you can get the sound out.

three words :vocal fry exercises.

listening to the song, it sounds exactly like vocal fry backed off a bit. think axl rose for vocal fry that's more exaggerated.

wrong information

the best advice i can give you is: 1 sing high more often 2 keep you larynx (atoms apple) lowered 3 WARM UP EXERCISES. believe me, it works!!! im a baritone/bass; i can go as low as an E2 (with warm up), and i used to struggle on any note starting with middle C (C4), and just today i reached a C#5 . i only got it once with ease though. like i said, i just got it today. but still, the point is IT WORKS

start with songs that arent quite as high as this, and work your way up. dont be afraid to sound terrible or crack at first. itll happen (you may want to practice by yourself at first lol)

good luck man!!!

Edit: yikes, meant and E3. E2 is like a freaking bass guitar lol

E2 is the low E on a guitar and 7th fret A string on a bass.

in that case i only reached a C#4 (still a drastic difference)

Edit: or whatever C# is on the 9th fret of the high E string
