The ‘Chensee’ track featuring Ada would certainly get your legs wobbling coupled with the trademark dancing antics something synonymous with Patapaa’s style of music.

When asked what inspires some terms in terms in some of the songs, Patapaa mentioned that the terms in his songs are not meaningless as had been perceived.
