Outside of his commercial ventures, ALOK continued his humanitarian work with his ALOK Foundation and his project to support indigenous communities globally, “The Future Is Ancestral,” which captured significant attention, from being invited to perform at the United Nations and Global Citizen, to being awarded by UNESCO, to recent support from the GRAMMY Museum, Los Angeles. Now, ALOK has proudly released the music from the collaboration as an album, with artists from eight indigenous tribes from different regions of Brazil.

When speaking on her collaboration with ALOK, Jess celebrates the nostalgia she felt working on the single, drawing parallels to her chart topping song ‘Hold My Hand’:
 
“It brings me so much joy when people say that ‘Hold My Hand’ reminds them of summer. There’s no better feeling than having a song that makes you reminisce on good times. So here’s another one that I hope people can enjoy this summer! Thank you ALOK, for having me on this track.”Jess Glynne
