The album is the first of Ai's on which she extensively collaborated with Japanese musicians, and her first on which she worked closely with Scandinavian producers. The final concert for Ai's tour of her previous album, What's Goin' On Aiwas held at the Nippon Budokan stadium, which was the first time Ai performed at the venue. A month prior to the album's release, " One " was released as the theme song for the second series of the drama Team Medical Dragon.
Ai's single " Believe " was used as the first season's theme song, and was extremely successful. However, "One" did not mirror "Believe"'s Ai - Dont Stop . Because she had just finished touring, Ai felt the strong energy from performing live, and was more conscious as to which songs would sound good performed live, compared to when creating her previous albums.
The album features an almost completely new set of producers. The one exception is T. For the first time, Ai worked with European songwriters. Unlike her previous studio album, What's Goin' On Aiwhere Ai had collaborated with four overseas musicians, she now collaborated with five Japanese musicians.
On the song "Butterfly," Ai worked with three other female vocalists, rapper Anty the Kunoichirock musician Anna Tsuchiya and reggae artist Pushim. This was the first time Ai worked with any of these musicians. Ai was friends with all three musicians, having first met Anty the Ai - Dont Stop when she performed at a club in Nagoyaand having first met Tsuchiya on the set of the film Memories of Matsukowhere both artists had 海滩情歌 - 鄭少秋* - 粵語流行曲精選 cameo appearances.
The song was released on Bleu's album one month before Ai's full length digital release of "Brand New Day," but one month after the ringtone release of Ai's version. The song "The Answer" was originally made for Team Medical Ai - Dont Stop s season two theme song, however the drama producers were looking for a "peaceful" song for the theme song instead.
She did not write the song with love in mind. The four singles released from the album all received major tie-ups. The tour ended on May 27 and May 28, with two performances at the Nippon Budokan. Listen Japan' s Morio Mori called the album splended and impressive, and felt it was a signature album of Ai's.
He was impressed by the colalboration track "Butterfly," calling it a "current day " Lady Marmalade. What's In? Ai won one award for the videos from the album, and was nominated twice.
