"Na-excite ako ulit kasi parang seven years ko yatang hindi ginawa ito 'yung magka-album tapos nagpro-promote ulit so parang nami-miss ko siya so ngayon ibang-iba na rin kasi ang pag-promote ngayon, meron na rin akong bagong natututunan so may mga bago para sa akin na gusto kong ma- excite kasi bago siya," she said.

Jolina shared that her new album is different from her previous ones because this time around she has been very hands-on with every single detail of it.

"Pwede kong sabihin na naging iba ang album na ito kasi naging hands-on ako dito sa album na ito. Dati kasi pagkagagawa ako ng album ibibigay lang sa akin 'yung kanta, ire-record ko na ngayon talagang pinayagan nila akong busisiin at binigyan nila ako ng chance na maglagay ng ideas at ng ano talaga ang gusto ko. Pinapili nila ako ng songs," she said.

She added that even in making the album cover and the music video, she had her inputs. "Pati sa paggawa ng album picture niya pati sa music video nabigyan ako ng chance na makialam. Kumbaga so feeling ko iba ‘to kasi itong ito talaga ako, kung ano 'yung maririnig nila at makikita nila sa album."

When asked who is her musical inspiration is as an artist, Jolina stated that it would be her husband Mark Escueta because of her husband's passion for music. "Siguro 'yung asawa ko kasi si Mark siya na lang 'yung natitirang member ng Rivermaya at every time nakikita ko siyang tumugtog nakikita ko pa rin 'yung excitement sa kanya kahit lagi niya ng ginagawa yun for ilang years na so parang kasi ako parang nawala ako kaunti sa music eh kasi hindi ako nag album for ilang years eh puro TV eh puro soap TV, live shows although may kantahan pa rin don pero iba pag album eh pero siya may album o wala nakikita mo yung passion niya sa music."

She added that Mark is always making her realize that music is her first love. "And pagnanapapanood ko siya naririnig ko 'yung mga experiences niya at ang mga naituturo niya sa akin tungkol sa work na ito, nai-inspire ako ulit na first love ko nga pala ito."
