Ylona Garcia addresses similarity of her carrier single to Maja Salvador's song


072216-ylona_main.jpgNext Teen Superstar Ylona Garcia would often clarify that her carrier single “Dahan Dahan Dahan Lang” has "three Dahans."

Ylona's remark stems from the fact that her song's title is similar to Dance Princess Maja Salvador's carrier single on her own debut album called “Dahan-Dahan.”

"Para sa akin, I hope it's not a problem for her I mean kasi there's a lot of songs na may dahan dahan sa pamagat no? So I just hope it's okay with her [because] it's okay with me," she said during the press conference of her upcoming digital concert titled My Name is Ylona Garcia.

The Pinoy Big Brother alumna stressed that the similarity of the two songs actually begins and ends with the title.

"Like it's just the title. As long as the song and 'yung rhythm sa song is not the same [I think it's okay]. Siguro that would be a problem if it's all the same," she said of her upbeat, pop song which does contrast with Maja's slow and somewhat sultry song.

Ylona added that she has actually heard Maja's song “Dahan-Dahan.”

“Dahan Dahan Dahan Lang” is part of Ylona's eponymously titled debut album, which is also set to be launched during her first digital concert this coming July 29.

A year since coming out of the famous yellow house and Ylona has pretty much trumped the achievements of her PBB batch mates.

Ylona just shrugged off the fact that she's more popular than the others.

"It's still not sinking in na meron akong album at meron akong first-ever digital concert worldwide," she blurted.

But she confessed that she feels a good amount of nervousness and at the same time some excitement while gearing up for her concert.

"And I'm so scared about what people would think," she added.

The former On The Wings of Love star shared that her concert repertoire is really diverse.

"Genre-wise maybe a lot of R&B and pop like and some rock songs and there are some mellow songs," she shared adding that she would also have dance numbers.

Apart from being one of the youngest stars to stage a major concert, Ylona also goes down in history as the second Kapamilya singer to stage a digital concert.

Pop Rock Princess Yeng Constantino held her pioneering 10th anniversary digital concert on One Music's website just last month.

Ylona admits that Yeng's concert is one tough act to follow.

"Medyo kasi di ba sa digital concert nya she's celebrating 10 years. Ako I'm really, it's my first time, it's my first album and it's my first-ever digital concert," she pointed out.

But since she really enjoys performing, PBB's Daldal Darling ng Australia ended with "I'm just going to do what I do."
