“I fell in love with this song because it sings about passion, it is full of hidden eroticism. Chris Isaac, the author, wrote about a woman he obsessively loved at one stage of his life. I did it to convey your emotion. They intertwined in some inexplicable way,” Sanja Vrančić added: “The song is about desire, about the power of passion that overwhelms a person and deprives him of the power of rational thinking. Passion as natural opium is inexhaustible to me as a source of inspiration.”

She also revealed how she started creating an independent song with this song album but presented it to the public only for the third time in a row. She recorded the previous video in Kornati National Park and the newest in the area of ​​protected Kamenjak.

“Both locations impressed me as wilderness of untouched beauty, untamed and defiant character. I also recognize some of these traits in myself. Wind and sun power which dispersed the gray clouds, blended perfectly with the rush of the SUV by the ways of the cruel Kamenjak”, said the instrumentalist who is also called “The Mandolin Woman”.

Since she was creating the script for the video herself, she felt the need to give contrast shots of a crude nature. So she stripped naked showing her tender and vulnerable side, just the one who suffers in situations like the one sung with the song Wicked Games. At the same time, she admitted that she found herself in what Isaac calls a perverted game.

“There is no stronger force than magnetic attraction. She, as much as she is comfortable, is often also synonymous with pain. It happens when passion connects two wrong people,” commented Sanja Vrančić and revealed that she does not know how to give advice on how to control feelings with reason because and she allows herself to be guided by emotions.

She worked on the song and the accompanying video with the team that she created the whole album. The music video was filmed on the Istrian cape Kamenjak.
