The video contained many amazing moments including the girls’ adorable reactions when they got to talk to such an amazing musical figure. Nile Rodgers himself found them super adorable and laughed every time one of them sang him well-deserved praise.
The most interesting part of the video came when Yunjin, the group’s designated English spokesman, asked him what he thought of their next track. She even asked him to share his thoughts during the work process on the catwalk. Much to the girls’ delight, Rodgers had nothing short of big words to say, and his reaction only raises expectations for the song.
The producer revealed that the song was so good that he quit work on another album he was on just to work on the LE SSERAFIM track!
Honestly I wake up every day and I love to play. When I heard the song I thought it was great and even though I was working on another record I just said let me play real quick just to see what I get.
– Nile Rodgers
This caught the girls by surprise, and they practically yelled as they repeatedly thanked Rodgers. The producer then explained a bit more about what he was trying to add to the song. Rodgers said the song was already playing “too cool” for him he wanted to try to make it funky.
The first thing I did was decode the track and I was like, ‘Wow, that sounds really cool. And then I was like, ‘Okay, this looks finished and complete to me because I loved it.’ Then I just started jamming and figured out how to make it funkier.
– Nile Rodgers
Rodgers then even played a few seconds of the song – parts that fans have already shared on social media. The comments and replies are awash with K-pop fans sharing how excited they are for the release, especially after hearing the producer’s teased clips.
