Aaron Kwok Fu Sing recently has been promoting the film LOVE FOR LIFE (JUI OI) with Zhang Ziyi and director Gu Changwei. In order to coordinate with the film's multiple angle promotion, Gu Changwei asked Sing Sing to write a theme song. From Sing Sing's 20th anniversary record the song, ALWAYS BEEN HERE was selected to become the film theme song.
Gu Changwei suggested for Sing Sing and Zhang Ziyi to sing it as a duet to strengthen this "terminal romance" sense of beauty in the film. He also asked song writer Peter Kam Pui Tat to produce the song in Hong Kong. Kam Put Tat said that the duo's first collaboration was unusually in tune. Sing Sing was also very happy about singing for the first time with Zhang Ziyi, the feeling was very fresh. Sing Sing said, "Ziyi although was not a singer, her voice was very soft. She knew how to use her emotional voice, very quickly she got into song recording condition. We worked together and completed the recording in one night." Sing Sing said that Ziyi was a good singer with a lot of potential, like working on a movie with her she was very focused. Ziyi also was very happy to sing the theme song with Sing Sing and said that one of the verses from the song was her favorite. "This deepest of love, never walks away, promise to always be here, love me!" They both said that this was a very pleasant collaboration experience.
