"The two of them expressed their intention to collaborate with us, and they said that it could only be us. After hearing the demo, we just fell in love with the pop modern melody," said Ernie.

The singer added that she and Syamel were also given the chance to co-write the lyrics to complete the said song.

Ernie, who took three days alongside her husband to record the song prior to their marriage - also revealed that "Goodbye Hello" is different than their previous duets like "Aku Cinta" and "Takkan Terlerai" - as the song is suitable for husband and wife, and lovers everywhere for its simple and yet romantic lyrics and melody.
