The remix had been in the works as far back as early 2014 when I decided to recreate the magic once again with producer,Wilson Joel who simply created another mindblowing masterpiece with the addition of the wicked Guitars by my friend, singer/guitarist, KayStrings.
I always wanted a new drive to the song and I just knew that Seyi Shay was the right person for the song as we had been planning to work on a song for a while now.
Above all, there is nothing like being in tune with your collaborating artist, you are just on the same page with ease.
I remember sitting in awe, right there in the studio that day as she sang her verse – she had no idea she had written the exact words in my heart and gave it back to me in a song. Seyi Shay definitely Rocks and The Remix totally rocks”
