Production

Production of this album is the result of a combination of works by local Malaysian song composers and producers, such as Li Nai Gang (李乃刚), Zhang Jue Long (张觉隆), Danny One Li Ming (温力铭), Peng Xue Bin (彭学斌), Guan Qi Yuan (管启源) and Azlan Abu Hassan. Out of these six individuals, Danny himself is a local singer and appears alongside Daniel in the MV for the song Because of Love 因爲有愛, a remake of the former's own song of the same title, except that Daniel sung while Danny rapped.
Zhang Jue Long was responsible for writing one of Daniel's well-known hits, I Love To See You Now 現在,很想見你, in his previous album. Guan Qi Yuan is one of the judges in the Malaysian version of Project Superstar (绝对Superstar), a Mandarin singing talent search competition, known as the most critical of all 5 judges.
Daniel was said to have been under pressure during the production of this album, partly he had spent most of his time gap between this album and the previous one in other works, such as guest appearances in concerts and also the idol television drama, Sky 星空, produced and shown on Malaysian channel, 8TV 八度空間. This has caused him to worry quite a bit as to whether his singing skills had improved since then. Daniel himself confessed that he repeated recording of the songs numerous times before he himself was really satisfied, despite receiving the green light from those in charge of the recording.
The cover of the album displays Daniel in a 'yuppie' suit, a reflection of maturity of Daniel in his singing career, thus removing him from his sunny image displayed in his previous album, an indication that he is no longer a newbie in the entertainment industry.
