Deschanel is an accomplished vocalist as well as an actress and has teamed up with singer-songwriter M. Ward to release a series of albums under the moniker She & Him. However, prior to this duet, Deschanel's singing had previously never featured on New Girl
(outside of the theme song). The Hollywood Reporter
asked Meriwether whether having Prince there changed that? "It might, it might," she replied with a laugh.
"That was also definitely about trying to figure out what was within the world of the show, but it was just so fun to watch and shoot. We just felt, again, it was one of those moments where we're like, 'Well, let's just go for it.' I think we can come back from this without losing all of our integrity. Basically, it's just awesome to see."
