Speaking about her first single, Lizzie expresses, “It’s the song that I hope people would jam with whenever may mood po sila na kinikilig or moment po na naalala po yun crush po nila, especially po sa generation ko. It’s just such a nice song that Direk JovenTan made. It is simple, but it sets the whole vibe po.”
