Sarah L-ee wrote the lyrics and did composition as well. She explains that she created this song with 5 feelings including love, sorrow, fear, depression, and hope.

This work is very challenging and at the same time, it proves how her talents span across many mediums.
The popular music producer Shinnosuke, who is a former member of SOUL’d OUT, arranged this song. He made the song very catchy and he made the track so it would be stuck in people’s heads once they heard it. Shinnosuke has been collaborating and creating original songs with Sarah L-ee since 2019. They worked together thoroughly on the music and arrangement. His distinctive beats are so obvious to his fans and his cool sound is so similar to the recent music trends around the world as well.

■Comments of Sarah L-ee
In this song, I expressed my 5 feelings including love, sorrow, fear, depression, and hope.
If the bond is strong enough, people will see each other again in the end even if they are once apart.
The main character keeps looking for the loved one until he can finally meet the person again.
This song has a message that love is the strongest thing in this world.
If you need to call 911 (you need to call 119 in Japan) from the universe, you need to call up 9011.
So, the title of this song is ‘Calling 9011’ and is not ‘Calling 911’.
Please dive into this magical universe which Shinnosuke and I created.
■Comments of Shinnosuke
Recently the sound of classic House music from the 90’s is back in trend worldwide.
I made this song which has House music undertones even before the trend began. So, the timing was the best ever.
I must say I was so ahead of the time! (Laugh)
Actually, the song has the particular sound of Acid jazz within the genre of house music.
I was creating this song imagining as if the song was in a compilation album of a UK label called, ‘Junior Boy’s Own’.
Please enjoy experiencing the amazing sensation of the rhythm pattern of four on the floor!
And Sarah L-ee totally gets the beat smoothly and puts her rapping freely over the music.
I love her rapping so much and recommend it tremendously to everyone!!
