Nadine Lustre and James Reid, the popular onscreen love team who recently won an award at the 46th Guillermo awards as the “Most Popular Loveteam in Movies & TV” will battle against each other at the Philpop 2015 songwriting competition.
The Philpop competition is open to all Filipinos or of Filipino descent, who are fond of composing OPM songs.
This year, James will be performing “Musikaw” which is composed by MC Magno and Nadine will perform Mark Villar’s composition “Sa Ibang Mundo.”
The love team told ABS-CBN News on Tuesday that they don’t fuss about them being on different teams as long as it’s a “healthy competition” and it wouldn’t matter if one of them wins as long as it will promote OPM.
“Mas more na masaya kami kasi kasali kami pareho, kasama kami sa interpreters,” Nadine said.
The young actress also showed concern for OPM by saying, “Sana naman po, hindi lang 'yung song namin [ang iboto]. Kung ano talaga yung song na gusto nila sa mga kasali. Huwag naman maging biased kasi para naman ito sa music industry.”
As of the moment, the two are busy shooting for their upcoming TV series On the Wings of Love. The airing date of the soap has not yet been announced but they already filmed some scenes in San Francisco, USA.
