SINGAPORE – Singaporean singer and songwriter JJ Lin revealed that he felt a wave of emotions when he first saw the artist’s impression of the Rain Vortex at Jewel Changi Airport and, at that moment, he was inspired to produce his latest song “The Right Time”.

For the making of “The Right Time”, JJ collaborated with local lyricist Xiaohan (小寒). Speaking about his latest composition, JJ said, “I believe in life there's always a perfect time and place for magical moments and things to happen; for dreams to take flight, and for love stories to be formed. Through the song, I hope to share the beauty of unplanned encounters, and for everyone to explore the connection between choice and destiny.”

The Rain Vortex in Jewel Changi Airport have become one of the most Instagrammed spots in Singapore ever since it was opened earlier this year.

JJ Lin feels a special connection with Changi Airport because it has become such a familiar spot for him due to his frequent travels. He said, “I see Changi Airport as a hub for people around the world to meet and form new connections, both socially and professionally. It is indeed a place of sanctuary, for weary travellers to rest and recover in between long hours of travel.”

The song will be released globally on 26th August on music platforms. On the same day, the music video for “The Right Time” will be available on Changi Airport’s social media channels. Filmed last month, the video stars JJ and regionally-acclaimed actor, Christopher Lee. And of course, it features Jewel’s waterfall and its surrounding lush greenery in the background of the music video.

In the meantime, here is a 15-second teaser of the music video before it is unveiled on 26th August. The preview has been shared over 100k since it debuted on Changi Airport’s official Facebook page.
