Congratulations on your highly anticipated comeback! While creating the new album, what were some of the essential ideas or goals that fueled this new and exciting era?

YUQI: As every song has a distinct message, I put a lot of effort into curating a playlist that reflects YUQI’s daily life. It would be wonderful if our fans can think of these details while listening!

When it comes to your brand new single, what’s one thing you’d hope that fans take away from their very first listening experience?

YUQI: Since this album is focused on presenting the real YUQI, I hope our fans would think, ‘This just sounds like YUQI herself,’ after listening to this album.

When you began to work on your new album, what were some of the influences that you brought into the project?

YUQI: As an artist, I draw inspiration from many different sources, but for this album, I was mostly influenced by myself

As a vocalist, you have such a unique, commanding tone that feels very unique to mainstream pop! With that in mind, if you had to choose one artist that you’d like to cover your new music, who would you choose?

YUQI: I would choose my members because they all have unique voice styles. Even though it’s the same music, it would still be enjoyable and interesting.

It’s been a few years since you released your incredible single album A Page – looking back at that moment in your career, what does that chapter represent to you?

YUQI: For me, [A Page] is a significant and meaningful album. That song is a genuine page of my life; it captures all the feelings and recollections of that period. It was great that I was able to record myself for that single!

You’ve also established yourself as a versatile songwriter after earning several credits as a composer and lyricist! Has there been a song in your discography that challenged you a little more than the other songs?

YUQI: I would like to respond to this question, but I’m finding it difficult to think of a song that challenged me. I always feel excited when I’m working on my songs [overall].
