The Indonesian singer Afgan was highly appreciated for his velvety voice. Afgan croons on this track, “Now I do all the right things with all the wrong people / All I ever wanted was you / If everything’s changed why do I feel the same / I’m still falling for you”. The singer shared a statement and said, “I hope that when people listen to the song, the sadness and pain we feel will drive us to do better. Regrets are something we can learn from, to avoid from making the same mistakes.”

He stated in that video, “I was starving… So we went to Chinatown, I left all of my stuff, my luggage in the car. We just ate for 45 minutes and then we went back to the car… The windows were smashed and I lost all my stuff that I brought for the whole month, my cash.”
