It was very strange, at the time when I was working on the song “Zalem” with the composer Adham, and he showed me the melody of the song “Me and My Heart” and I liked it very much, but he indicated that the words on it were taken by the poet from him, and that the new poet is Muhammad Saeed Hareb and he had written a new acquaintance with it, and because Harib is an old friend, I contacted him and asked him to change the lyrics of the song, but he told me that he was busy and would travel to the Maldives, and when he returns we will do that, I tried to make him work on it before his travel, but he refused, and I agreed with him, But he surprised me after his arrival in the Maldives by sending me the beginning of the song, which made me so happy that I cried out of happiness while I was in my car, and I asked him to complete the song, and I actually finished it completely at the end of the day, and it was implemented.

The song was not meant to be released in this way to be a clip, but a Lyric Video, so we said that we should make an animated image instead of a still image, and I wanted to present this feeling, presenting the difference between fire and snow, so we chose leather because it is one of the clothes that show excitement, violence and torture, but it shows the woman that she is sexy and beautiful, so our choice of leather even was not without reason, but to express with it the state of excitement and mystery, which reached the audience, but we chose one outfit so that the audience could focus with the lyrics of the song and not be distracted with more than one outfit.
