Red Velvet's Joy emphasized, "I want to really thank the senior artists who allowed me to remake their tracks. Even if I wanted to sing their songs, copyright issues would make it complicated. All of the tracks are just so amazing, I did not want to mess up the emotional aura of the original. But, I did try to show my own voice and emotions inside the songs."
To add to that, Red velvet's Joy shared that people her age might not know a lot of tracks from the '90s and 2000s, but she practiced with the aforementioned songs while she was a trainee.
Red Velvet's Joy concluded by saying that when Lee Soo Man noted that he wanted her to sing songs that both mothers and children could relate to, Red Velvet's thought that the songs from the 2000s would be a perfect fit.
