This song, described as a “warm-up single for the new album”, marks Hardwell‘s first collaboration with a Taiwanese singer.
Jolin declared about Hardwell “Hardwell’s style is very masculine, it’s very attractive to me, so I wanted to try and take up the challenge!”
She had a great time recording the song: “I was listening to his music while reading the lyrics, it was a very special time, you could stay there til the end of the world!”
When she first heard the demo she felt something special. The process of collaboration is something very exciting to her, after the song was born she loved it.
Hardwell said: “I was very honoured to work with Jolin, I like this song, I hope you’ll like it!”
