“I met « Kay » and the feat. artist, Jay Lansen, on the same night. I had a crush on Kay and when Jay called me to see if I wanted to do a collaboration I wrote this song. It was meant to be an acoustic song, but I developed it and as I am a fan of Flamenco and Greek/Oriental music I wanted to try a mix of 808 bass and traditional percussion. Jay found out six months later for whom the song was written.” -MÌNA
