Her agency YMC Entertainment stated, "Ailee and Lee Joon met for the first time through this music video shoot. As soon as they met they had to go into acting like lovers, so there were many awkward moments and NG scenes. However, they immersed themselves in heartwarming love scenes to a heartbreaking farewell scene. Their great emotional acting received praise from the staff."

"Singing Got Better" is a song about Ailee and Lee Joon, who fostered a short but beautiful love while doing music together. Later they break up. Thereafter, Ailee succeeds, and relives the painful moments of her past.

Ailee said, "I was really flustered having to start acting in love as soon as we met, but Lee Joon, who has more acting experience, really helped me. Thanks to him I quickly overcame any awkwardness and was able to seriously get into the scene. I really enjoyed the shoot."

Music Video ReView: Ailee's U&I, Does the Formula Work?

In the video, we also catch some very minor details, like how the video plays off of the lyrics. I don't know exactly how intentional this is, but during the first verse, Ailee sings about how she no longer smiles because of the person she is singing too, and true to her word, she doesn't smile throughout the video until the moment she slides the ring off of her finger-- which I can only assume is a gift of some sort from the ex lover. This scene is later in the video, around the bridge of the song, right after make up finishes her prepping her eyes (which also is right where the lyrics state something about Ailee tired of crying, or having no intention of crying-- details). She slips the ring off, gives her reflection a brief smirk, and then leaves the ring on the table while she proceeds with her life baggage-free.

There's nothing much to say about the dance, Ailee isn't exactly known to be a great dancer. She is, however, a heavy belting singer, and if there is one final thing the song should be credited for, it's the fact that it utilized her vocal range well.
