Michelle Ayalde launches her first international album ‘HiPNOTIC’ in the Philippines.
After launching her first international album in Malaysia last July, Michelle Ayalde also brought her new brand of music to the Philippines.
During the launch of her album HiPNOTIC on Thursday, August 11, Michelle said she’s very happy that she’s home with her first international album in tow.
“Actually, para sakin pantay lang ang OPM at international kasi I’m really proud of our songs kasi Filipinos are very talented. You can see them all over the world, especially the musicians,” she stressed.
Michelle released her self-titled debut album in 2005.
“Ngayon it’s kind of different from my previous album. At the same time I’m really proud of it because I got to work with different race [while making it],” she said.
The Wansapanataym singer’s seven-track EP marked the revival of her music career.
Michelle admitted that despite the local launch of her album, returning to local show business remains impossible as of the moment as she still needs to fulfill her contract in Malaysia.
But she said that she would be promoting her album to the best that she can during her almost two-month vacation in the country.
“Very supportive naman sila sa lahat ng ginagawa ko. My family andyan na sila since day 1. Kahit bumaba, tumaas, hindi sila aalis sa tabi ko,” she said of her family’s reaction about her album’s launch in the Philippines.
Speaking of her return to the country, Michelle said that she has yet to catch up with her showbiz friends.
During her album launch though, her co-Star Magic artists Janus del Prado, Allyzon Lualhati, and Celine Lirio dropped by to show some support.
Apart from bring her album to the Philippines, Michelle shared that the music videos of her songs from HiPNOTIC are also set to be released on local music channels like MYX soon.
