I’m super happy and I will do my best to inspire people,” Rans said.

MNL48 Coleen also expressed her excitement to be part of the new Senbatsu. “I’m super happy and surprised because I was not expecting it since I’m still new in MNL48 since I started out as a trainee. I feel blessed and thankful that I was one of the chosen members to take part of this second single,” she said.
