Famous for his dancing skills, not everyone knows Kapamilya actor and ASAP 20 mainstay Rayver Cruz can also sing. In fact, he is set to launch his album entitled, What You Want in March.
During his album pictorial, Rayver revealed how the idea for the album came about. He said that he and his friends were simply discussing about it over dinner one time. “Sabi nila bakit hindi daw ako gumawa ng album kasi nga every time na lalabas kami tapos may mga parang parties, si Sam (Milby) talaga laging gusto niya akong pinapakanta, laging niyang gustong pinaparinig ‘yung boses ko sa mga tao. Natutuwa sila so sabi ko, sige nga, bakit hindi nga nating gawin?” he lightheartedly shared.
Although he admitted that dancing will remain his first love, Rayver said that he also wants to develop his singing ability. “Kasi alam kong meron naman.” He added that he wants to sing and dance, sharing that international artists like Usher, Jay Z, and Chris Brown are his idols.
In his album, fans can expect danceable and mid-tempo tracks. What You Want will feature a total of eight songs—two songs from the Academy of Rock in Singapore, two remakes including Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano’s “Hataw Na,” two collaborations with R&B Prince JayR, and two original tracks by Jonathan Manalo.
Rayver was part of two dance albums namely, ASAP Ultimate Dance 4 and ASAP Supahdance 2 in 2007 and 2010 respectively.
