It's been a long time coming for this track as Melissa and India met more than 8 years ago through a mutual friend. Melissa said on her Instagram that she "believes things come together at perfect times."
Jeremy Passion is part of Melissa Polinar's project that marks the 10-year anniversary of her EP, AS OF NOW. He interprets her song, Never Change and it's one of his favorite pieces by her. Jeremy felt the pressure "to create a version that does the song justice, and honor such a beautifully written song."

Melissa shares what this song has meant to her and how excited she was to have Jeremy on the track:
TO START THINGS OFF, here’s @jeremypassion’s rendition of NEVER CHANGE. I’m EXTREMELY proud & excited to finally share this single.
Our friendship has spanned more than a decade now and thought it was only fitting to share this one first. NEVER CHANGE is a song that has meant so much to me within my lifetime since I wrote it a decade ago. I recently sang it for my dad’s memorial tribute earlier this month. With everything that went on (still going on) in 2020, I hope you find some comfort & peace in this song.
"We wrote this song together over Zoom during the summer during quarantine as we reflected on life.
“Real” is about getting back to our real selves, not getting distracted by the noise, seeing all of us as worthy of love, and choosing to live a life to its full potential with purpose."
