Soul Siren is looking forward to returning to ASAP.
Soul Siren Nina shared that she will once again perform on ASAP Rocks
when she releases her next album soon. Nina used to appear weekly on ASAP
together with her fellow Sessionistas like Aiza Seguerra, Richard Poon, Sitti, and Princess Velasco. However, the petite singer has long since stopped appearing on the Sunday variety show.
When asked if her album launch on ASAP
in the coming weeks will mark her return to the show as a regular performer, Nina replied vaguely, “Actually, meron
show] kasi ‘yun naman ang
crucial don, ‘pag lumabas na ‘yung
album makikita na nila ako
.” Nina also said that she also misses her fellow Sessionistas. Asked about their relationship, she replied, “Okay naman
, same pa rin
Nina’s absence on ASAP
also spawned controversies, like the rumor that she allegedly got pregnant. “Kahit dati pa kauumpisa ko pa lang buntis na
] ako. Sa umpisa ko pa lang may anak na ako kaagad
. [‘Yun pala
] anak ng kapatid ko
, close ko kasi ‘yun. ’Yung mga ganong bagay ‘di ko na pinapansin. Kung buntis man ako tingnan na lang nila
by themselves. Kung minsan na malaki puson ko baka meron lang ako nung mga araw na ‘yon kaya malaki ang puson,
” she joked.
The singer just arrived in the country after a series of shows in the United States. “Masaya kasi may mga kababayan natin na para silang nasabik sa
performance ng mga Pilipino
. I’m sure ganun talaga sila, masayahin lang talaga ang mga Pilipino
so hindi nakakapagod mag-
perform sa kanila kahit na sunud-sunod ‘yung
from one state to another.” Nina said that she performed in Los Angeles, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Alaska.
Apart from other shows abroad, Nina is now focused on the nearing release of her next album which is set for the last week of September. She also took pride in saying that she exerted her time and effort for her next album. “Talagang tinutukan ko ‘to
sound naman pero may
Nina touch. Gusto ko lagi ‘pag may lumalabas na
album may bago. Kung pare-pareho baka magsawa sila, so ibang
music pero may
Nina pa rin
. I’m sure mage-
,” she assured. She said further that she is not pressured by the expectations to turn her album into a hit like her previous ones. “Gusto ko lang gumawa ng
album para sa mga taong makikinig sa akin, hindi ko pine-
pressure ang sarili ko na kailangan ko ‘tong pagbutihan para mag-
double platinum. Ang gino-
goal ko dito ay magustuhan ng tao
. So kung magkaroon man ng
award o magkaroon ng
double platinum, bonus na lang ‘yon.
