Frankie Pangilinan was happy to collaborate with Ely Buendia.
Frankie Pangilinan happily shared that she has already released her first single “TYL” (True Young Lovers). The single was also a dream come true since she got the chance to with Eraserheads vocalist Ely Buendia, one of the music icons she looks up to.
Proud mom Sharon Cuneta first revealed that Ely was the producer of her daughter’s song.
“This man has been my absolute hero for years now. I know pretty much every Eraserheads song by heart (Cutterpillow is and always will be my favorite album maybe tied with Circus right now that I’ve had that on repeat for a while again), and when I heard there was a chance I might work with him I burst into tears of joy,” she wrote.
“I never ever thought that I’d get the privilege of working with someone I’ve looked up to for so long (I don’t think he knows how much I love him tbh I was a nervous wreck in the studio and was shaking the whole time I didn’t think I’d be able to sing),” she added.
Frankie then shared the backstory of the making of her single.
“I wrote TYL sometime last year, and though the finished sound is not something I ever thought I’d delve into, only Ely Buendia could ever convince me to go that far out of my comfort zone and do something different. The original was slower, rawer, and he brought out this power in it that I can’t quite explain. It sounds so unapologetically genuine and I’m beyond excited for you to hear it,” she said.
Sharon then thanked all of Frankie’s supporters for it already made it to charts in just a day.
“Thank you so much everyone for supporting my Kakie’s first single!!! I am so happy - and proud - to let all of you know that in just one day, her song is #25 in the iTunes charts in Australia!!! We love you!!! God bless us all!”
