That email sounds more scary then it sounds. They just use it because they want to double check with you that you have commercial rights. Just send in your claim rights again with the link they provided in the email & they should enable it. (Note that it has taken 2 to 3 weeks for them to enable my videos when I use royalty free music too, they put smaller YouTubers like us on a lower priority)

Oh, but just to double check, they want the music name, the artist, the link to the music, & a link to the websites terms. This is usually what I put when I use music from that website:

So if you didn't include all of the info, that may have triggered that email. Otherwise YouTube seems to randomly send out that email for smaller YouTubers like us.
