Earlier, Piers Aggett of Rudimental said, "Celebrating our diversity is a key message of the band. Obviously, we’ve all got different heritages, we’re from London – one of the most diverse cities in the world and we like to celebrate our differences. That’s our vibe." Fellow band member Locksmith added that the key message of this single is about togetherness, bringing people from all walks of life through the music that we create."
The ICC cricket World Cup 2019 will kick start from May 30, when England will lock horns with South Africa at The Oval in London.
