In an interview, Lisa shared her story of getting this song, she said,
On 19 May 2018, I put up an Instagram video singing a mashup of the song Tareefan and Let Me Love You. The video caught the attention of Sonam and Rhea Kapoor, and they double-tapped. “I was driving back from work when I saw that Sonam had reposted the video on her page, and suddenly, I was flooded with comments from her dad, Anil Kapoor, and her brother, Harshvardhan Kapoor. Ekta Kapoor reposted the video on her page too. Soon, Rhea sent me a DM on Instagram asking me when was the earliest I could fly to Mumbai.” “It was so surreal for me; I felt like I was living a Cinderella story. It was top secret; none of my friends knew about it till Sonam posted the video.”
Some of her famous songs are Koi Nahi (2019), The Wakhra Song from Judgemental Hai Kya (2019), and Chandigarh Mein from Good Newwz (2019).
