Ramona Arena , 07 May 2012

I remember meeting Ramona for the first time in her MTV VJ avatar. Since then she’s gone on to act, sing, write, host TV shows, scuba dive and travel around the world. Needless to say, ‘ain’t nobody gonna keep her down! Here she is with all the dope on her new single “Wanna Be Your Only Love” and 10 things you probably wouldn’t have guessed! xoxo

1. I wrote the lyrics and composed the vocal melody for it too.

2. The lyrics were actually a poem I’d written for someone.

3. You will never get me to tell you ‘who’.

4. I wrote and composed Wanna Be Your Only Love in Zurich after my friend Thomas Eggli sent me a rough scratch of a track he’d made.

5. I first composed the vocal melody on my iPhone!

8. Anish Sood and I had to do many scenes in the video, it was his first time – he was very nervous and shy!

9. I’ve co-directed, co-ordinated and co-edited this video. Put in an insane amount of time, blood, sweat and oh yes – tears!

10. This video is the first EDM video reaching the international market out of India.

I’m so proud to be the first person from India to sing in English in this genre! Wanna Be Your Only Love has 2 amazing remixes by Praveen Achary and Rishabh Joshi & Snowflakes available with the Original Mix. This song has a very special meaning to me for many reasons and always takes me back to a significant time of change and growth in my life. This video wouldn’t be possible without Red Bull, Sunburn Festival, Vh1, the help and support of all my friends who helped me make it and we hope you all like it and request it constantly!!! Thank everyone for the love and support, and thanks MissMalini for featuring us! ;) xxxxxxxxxx
