“Makalipas ang ilang taon, nasa pangangalaga ko na ang aking music catalogue. At dahil dyan binigyan ko ng bagong bihis ang ilan sa mga kantang minahal nyo galing sakin. Ito ang REIMAGINED. Unang limang kanta sa marami pang susunod. Palagi akong magpapasalamat sa lahat ng suportang binigay at binibigay nyo sakin. Alay ko lahat ng ito sainyo Yengsters!” she said in one of her posts.
(After several years, my music catalogue is now under my care. And because of that, I have given some of your beloved songs from me a new look. This is the REIMAGINED. The first five songs of many more to come. I will always be grateful for all the support you have given and continue to give me. I dedicate all of this to you, Yengsters!)

She said that the entire process of before the release of her EP has been “so much fun,” from scouring her music catalogue to recording.
“Mula sa paghalughog ng music catalogue ko, pag-areglo, pagrecord, pag isip ng album cover at ngayon paghatid nito sainyo. Balewala ang eyebags at pagod! Samahan nyo ko magbaliktanaw sa mga kantang sinulat ko,” she said.
(From going through my music catalogue to recording, thinking of the album cover, and now presenting it to you, I poured all my strength and dedication to bring this all to you. Forget about the eyebags and exhaustion! Join me in reminiscing these songs that I wrote.)
