Aliana Lohan is the mastermind behind the ‘Temptation Island’ theme song.

Lindsay Lohan isn’t the only star in the Lohan family. Her sister, Aliana Lohan, is a successful singer-songwriter and the genius behind the Temptation Island theme song, “You’re Not Gonna Tempt Me.”

The model and singer's single has been synonymous with the reality romance series since its revival on USA in 2019.

However, the jingle was not intended as a reality television theme song. When speaking with USA Insider, Aliana revealed that she wrote “You’re Not Gonna Tempt Me” in 2018 and called it “Let The River Take Me.”

After USA tasked the singer’s record label with creating a Temptation Island theme song, they asked Aliana if they could rewrite certain aspects of “Let The River Take Me” for it.

“They asked if I was comfortable,” the Mostly Ghostly star explained. “Letting a river take you and also, not being tempted, I was like, ‘You know, it all goes hand in hand.' It fit my songwriting profile well, and I’m just so happy we were able to do it."

Where can you stream the full version of Aliana Lohan’s ‘Temptation Island’ theme song?

With Aliana being the voice of the Temptation Island theme song for five seasons and counting, it’s no wonder fans are curious about where they can download or stream “You’re Not Gonna Tempt Me.”

Unfortunately, the singer-songwriter doesn't appear to have released her song on any music platforms. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s not in the cards.

“Maybe there’s a future in releasing it,” Aliana told USA Insider in 2022. “That’d be really great, actually.”

Although viewers can’t stream the singer’s Temptation Island theme song at the moment, they can still listen to Aliana’s other work on Spotify.

From her rendition of “Jingle Bells” from her sister Lindsay’s holiday rom-com, Falling For Christmas, to her hit song “Without You,” fans of “You’re Not Gonna Tempt Me” can be fed in more ways than one.

Temptation Island airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on USA.
