It's All Coming Back to Me, the song, was originally written by Jim Steinman, but was popularized when the songstress sang a cover of the ballad and included it in her 1996 album, Falling Into You

The song has regained popularity thanks to TikTok, having gone viral for people dramatically transforming themselves for a recent trend featuring it.

The movie, which will be released in theaters on 10 February, 2023, was originally titled Text For You, and is based on the 2016 German film SMS für Dich by Karoline Herfurth.
