Donny Pangilinan, the son of celebrity couple Maricel Laxa and Anthony Pangilinan, signed a contract with Universal Records on Tuesday, June 20.
According to the young singer who is also a MYX VJ, he has a couple of songs coming up and that they are already working on the first one which is slated to be released by the end of July. He said that the songs will also be compiled into an album.
“I’m actually going to be very involved in it so I’m really going to help in terms of the writing process and the producing… I want everything to be a surprise. This is my first time doing something like this and I really want people to just be shocked by it so yeah, I’m going to be very much involved,” he told PUSH and other reporters during the contract signing.
Giving a clue about his genre, Donny said that it will bring good vibes with a mix of R&B and chill music. “There’s a lot of different genres in one,” he said, adding that his songs will be based on his experiences, as well as that of his peers as he wants people to be able to relate to his music.
Meanwhile, PUSH asked Donny about how he became Kisses Delavin’s escort during her debut last May.
He then narrated how he got to know the former Pinoy Big Brother housemate, “We met one time in the Star Cinema, it was like a go-see, something like that. A lot of artists (were there). And then we met there. And then nagpapicture pa nga ako sa kanya at saka si Maymay (Entrata), eh because I don’t know, we were just all in the back in one room. Everyone was talking, everyone. So we were just taking snacks and stuff…”
“In the debut, they asked me to be part of the 18 roses and I was like, sure. And then everything just went off from there like when I was there already, they asked me if I could bring her downstairs so I said, sure, why not? So I just brought her downstairs. That’s basically it.”
When asked if they are friends, Donny said yes, adding that they see each other at events.
