A new song, "Emotion", was written for her by Barry and Robin Gibb. The single was co-produced by Barry with Bee Gees' production team of Albhy Galuten and Karl Richardson. Released in 1978, with backing vocals by Barry, it showcased a softer style and became a major hit worldwide. It reached number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 in March 1978, and earned a platinum record. It peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart and at number two on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart.

Emotion peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard 200 and achieved a gold record in March 1978. Determined to succeed on her own merits, Sang did not record another Gibb song to capitalise on her success, but chose a disco track, "You Keep Me Dancing" as her next single. It peaked at No. 56 on the U.S. Hot 100 (NZ # 21) and was followed into the charts by her cover of Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight Hour".
