I will PAY you with percentages of what the game makes.
I will judge your music and give you your percentages based on how great your song was and how much your song fits into the game. (2% - 5%)
While there are people here who would accept a deal like that from developers they never worked with before/don't know on a personal level, I have to warn you the second line I quoted looks really bad from a musician's perspective. It implies you'd put in a song you're less than satisfied with in your game just because it got submitted, and then decide its value despite the fact you're using it the same as other songs you put in the game.
Consider that anyone who made a track you're going to use put in time and effort to make it, and if they're all going to be featured in your game, it makes no sense to give different percentages for the same service based on subjective values. You're not paying upfront, so you're not looking for contractors, but partners taking the risk they won't see any money from this. Also, if you imply you'd put in songs that you don't think fit the game to a T or that you don't see as fantastic, that says a lot about the quality control in this project.
In short, you might want to consider changing that policy and avoiding a bad reputation.
