Lee Hi expressed her gratitude toward Spotify and her fans for giving her a new milestone before this year ends. According to the singer, she successfully reinterpreted the song and turned it into a new, romantic holiday song.

"It was fun to recreate a much-loved track to a holiday version just for Spotify's Holiday Singles for broader international music fans. I hope the reimagined 'For You' and other songs in the collection can comfort listeners so they can have a happy holiday in a time where cheer is certainly needed," she went on.

After her appearance on the Spotify special, Lee Hi will be busy working on her next album.

In an interview with GQ Korea this month, the 25-year-old singer said she would include several artists in her upcoming project, and the list contains singers from AOMG. She signed on the label, which Jay Park founded, in 2020 after her seven years' stay at YG Entertainment.

Per Lee Hi, it would be hard if she picks one out of various talented artists under AOMG. So instead of stressing herself, she decided to invite as many artists as possible soon.
