After watching the broadcast, Monbebes immediately took off to social media to inform ELHAE of I.M’s confession – and it was a huge success as the American singer-songwriter was able to see the rapper’s heartfelt request. “Let’s get in touch.

I.M also expressed his support as a fan for ELHAE during a US radio show guesting in 2018. In response, ELHAE remarked, “I love you, too. It’s almost finished,” which added to the buzz and curiosity regarding their collaboration.
