James Wan Talks Skylar Grey | Monsters & Critics ::
“….M&C: Why did you want to use songs like “Africa” and “She’s A Mystery”?

JW: I thought it spoke very well to that sequence. I actually want to talk about the song that Skylar Grey wrote for us for the ending. I’m such a big fan of hers.

I think it’s a beautiful piece that we use that song and peppered it throughout the movie. You hear hints of it throughout the film. It’s Mera and Arthur’s sort of love theme that you hear throughout the film in instrumental and at the end of the movie you hear the song version….”
