Bugoy Drilon admits he is preparing hard for his first all-English album


063011-bugoy_main.jpgSince emerging from Pinoy Dream Academy in 2008, Bugoy Drilon has led a steady singing career that he is very thankful for and he has even more choice projects in the works. “Magtu-two years na ako with Star Magic. Okay naman yung pag-alaga nila sa akin. Nasu-sustain naman yung career ko, nabubuhay naman yung family ko. Napo-provide ko naman yung gusto ko sa buhay ko,” he admitted.

The 22-year-old native from Camarines Sur said he has already learned a lot from being in showbiz for over three years now. “Yung pagkatao ko kasi noon, aaminin ko naman kasi na hindi naman talaga kami mayaman. Kumabaga, isa akong probinsyano pero itong pagiging nasa entertainment industry ko ang nagbigay sa akin ng isang malaking mundo para mabago ko yung pamumuhay ng family ko, ng sarili ko at nakapag-inspire ng maraming tao through my singing. Kaya nagpapasalamat ako na kahit papaano, na-discover nila na kaya ko mag-inspire ng maraming tao,” he shared with Push.com.ph.

Currently promoting his album Nang Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig under Star Records which was released last year, Bugoy said he is also looking forward to starting work on his newest album which was something he did not expect to be offered to him. “Sana suportahan nila yung third album ko at abangan nila dahil magkakaroon ako ng album na puro English na kanta. This will be my first project na kakanta ako ng mga English na kanta, I think it’s happening this year. I don’t know. I’m going to try that naman. Sa lahat lahat ng albums ko, naka-apat na ako na albums (one album was a compilation with other artists), wala pa akong English na kinanta,” he said.

Despite his steady popularity, Bugoy admitted he still has some reservations regarding singing in English. “Sana magustuhan nila. I’m really hoping hindi naman ako malait sa diction ko,” he told Push.com.ph.

Bugoy also said she is especially proud of his current album because of he was able to contribute a song he wrote. “First time ko rin mag-compose ng sarili kong kanta yung ‘Paano Na Ang Puso Ko.’ Isang kanta lang yun pero siyempre natutuwa ako dahil nagawa ko. Siya yung next video na ilalabas from my third album. Kaya I’m so happy na at least hindi na-reject yung kinompose ko. Natuwa naman sila sa ginawa ko,” he added.

As part of the Star Magic tour that recently went to Europe, Bugoy felt very blessed to be included in such a talented group. “Kasama ko doon si Ate KC Concepcion, Matteo Guidicelli, at Derek Ramsay. Pumunta kami ng Zurich, Switzerland. Sobrang ganda at sobrang lamig doon. Lahat ng tao nakasalamuha namin ang babait nila sa amin. Yung mga Pinoy dun, siguro umuwi ako ng may isang maletang chocolates. Natutuwa nga po ako kasi hindi ko akalain na may mga taong mata-touch ka na mapapamahal sa ‘yo,” he recalled. The talented singer admitted that their one-night only show was an unforgettable night for him. “Isang show lang pero malaking venue siya. Nakapag-meet and greet kami with the fans and then pumunta sila sa hotel kung saan kami nag-stay. And then lumabas din kami at nag-ikot ikot dun so nakita ko yung mga lugar dun. Pinaka-first time ko yun sa Europe,” he said.

The following months will prove to be just as busy for him as he leaves in August to perform in the US. Bugoy also told Push.com.ph that his distinct voice has definitely helped him set himself apart from other contemporary singers. “Di ba alam naman natin na matagal na rin ako sa showbiz, at hindi pa rin nila ako nakakali
