The song was written and produced by the SB19 crewmate himself, teaming up with his go-to collaborator, Ocho The Bullet, and singer-songwriter No Rome, who’s based in London. Talking all about the production process, Cullen shares how this dynamic duo truly stepped in to breathe life into the track, bringing his vision for the single to vivid reality.

“I was pretty much the brains and director of the process, but my cousin ‘Ocho’ really elevated things, surpassing my expectations. I might’ve pushed him a bit hard with my specific vision, which got a bit stressful. However, he went all out on this insane drop we’d been dreaming of. And you know what? The outcome exceeded all my expectations,” he explains.

In the music video, Josh showcased a cool visual vibe featuring friends casually hanging out in the picturesque streets of Los Angeles, basking in the sun-soaked ambiance and embracing the city’s laid-back lifestyle. From cruising down palm-lined boulevards to capturing the vibrant essence of LA’s eclectic culture, the video encapsulates that carefree energy we all adore.

“I wanted to bring the visuals I’ve had in mind since we started making the song to life, and LA turned out to be the perfect spot for it. Yet, truthfully. YouMeUs and my team in LA exceeded all expectations. Despite being only three people in LA, their effort and discipline were monumental. They managed to make it look like a full-blown production with their dedication, imagination, improvisation, and hard work,” he said.

During the MV launch, Josh also disclosed that one of his favorite parts of the music video was his car scene. “Binurn ko yung gulong niya para maganda yung accelerate,” the singer said, feeling as if he was performing a scene from the hit film series Fast and Furious.

This Montage Moment? The Vibes are Vibing
