Gliding effortlessly over an electronic dance beat, the duo keeps the soulful poetic element of the original track while exploring the track in a modern way.
Regarding the track’s inspiration, TOKiMONSTA mentioned that she felt inspired to reimagine the Grammy-nominated single, with VanJess in mind, during the pandemic. “It’s my first real dance record, and I’m excited to share it with the world,” she said in a statement.
VanJess hopped on the opportunity to remake the song after feeling the void of doing covers, which gave them their big break. Doing so with TOKiMONSTA, the pair are pleased about what she did, saying, “She created such a unique spin on it that’s true to her artistry.”
