Singaporean singer-songwriter JJ Lin has apparently been inspired by Jewel Changi’s ‘Rain Vortex’, reputed to be the world’s largest indoor waterfall for his latest song. Called ‘The Right Time’, Jewel Changi features prominently in the music video.

A 15-second teaser has been put up on the airport’s Facebook page.

A press release from the Changi Airport Group said: “The song is a response to Jewel’s iconic attraction. JJ revealed that he felt a wave of emotions when he first saw the artist’s impression of the Rain Vortex and, at that moment, he was inspired to produce this piece.”

The complete song is scheduled to launch on August 26 across music platforms. 

Speaking about the song, Lin said: “I believe in life there’s always a perfect time and place for magical moments and things to happen; for dreams to take flight, and for love stories to be formed. 

“Through the song, I hope to share the beauty of unplanned encounters, and for everyone to explore the connection between choice and destiny.

“I am very excited to be part of this project. Producing a song for the Rain Vortex is an honour to me, because I believe that Jewel is a landmark that will help attract tourists from all over the world to Singapore.”

CAG’s group senior vice president for corporate and marketing communications Ivan Tan said: “We are delighted that Changi’s Jewel is the setting for this beautiful song by JJ Lin. 

“As a Singaporean brand, we are very proud to have worked with a homegrown and world-renowned talent. 

“JJ is a successful artiste with global reach and we believe the video will amplify Jewel’s unique brilliance and charm. We hope that through the universal language of music, more people will come to know Jewel from a different perspective.”
