Rayver Cruz aims to be a total performer
021816-rayver_main.jpgRayver Cruz, who is venturing into singing, talked about the songs he recorded for his album What You Want that is set to be released next month.


Featuring two original songs from the Academy of Rock in Singapore, Rayver shared his recording experience abroad where singer Thor coached him in singing. “Nakakatuwa kasi hindi nila alam na sobrang hilig ko sumayaw kasi parang ‘yung ginawa nila, ang alam lang nila, kailangan danceable ‘yung music na pwedeng kantahin. Tapos pinasayaw nila ako sa harapan nila tapos nagulat sila na ganyan ka pala sumayaw,” he said. 

Moreover, he added, “Noong sumayaw na ako sa harapan nila, tuwang tuwa sila tapos naexcite sila, parang gusto rin nilang irelease ‘yung mga songs dun kasi nga wala raw gumagawa dun nun na parang sumasayaw at kumakanta.”

Meanwhile, Rayver also talked about why he chose to revive Gary Valenciano’s song, “Hataw Na.” “’Yun talaga ‘yung isa sa mga choices namin pati ng mga kaibigan ko kasi nga ever since naman, sino lang ba ‘yung idol namin pagdating sa ganyan? Si Sir Gary lang so gusto ko talaga na kahit one song niya and sa tingin ko ‘yung ‘Hataw Na’ niya ‘yung bagay kasi nga sa sayawan, pang-sayaw siya talaga tapos hataw talaga.”

When it comes to collaborations, Rayver said that he recorded two songs that R&B Prince Jay R wrote for him. 

Sana okay at matuwa sila. And, sana something new na magulat din sila na kaya rin pala ni Rayver na kumanta, ayun ‘yung purpose nitong album para maipakita sa tao na hindi lang basta sa sayawan, kaya ko rin maging, hopefully, total performer,” he lightheartedly said.
