Produced by Mantra (Rihanna, Lil Nas X, Lil Yachty, Sean Kingston), the track is deeply passionate, with a
ruminating guitar riff playing as the backdrop for Michael’s impeccable vocal range. Oozing with emotion and
desire, he conducts a soulful parade that features orchestral synths, rich choral harmonies and 80’s-esque
keyboard, creating a lavishly textured single that encompasses the indescribable feeling of love itself.
Describing the inspiration behind the track, he quotes “In this world of dating apps and constant
situationships, ‘I Choose You’ challenges us to know our worth, to work on ourselves, and then find that
special someone who is deserving of us. When choosing someone to love, hold them close and don’t lose
them”. Written amidst the pandemic, Michael became intrigued by the concept of relationships whilst
spending isolation alone, analysing how different life can be when somebody you love is by your side. “During
the peak of COVID-19, I created the song in one day using Mantra’s beat. I changed some things here and
there leading up to my recording, but the melody and majority of the words stayed the same. Being single
during COVID-19 is not fun, so I’m always in awe of couples who found love during this time or couples who
still stayed strong during this crisis. This song was written during a dark time, but it always made me happy
when I sang it. It gave me hope. I remember singing it to my family, and they loved it. From there, I moved
forward with recording it”.
