Actress-singer Maris Racal is back with a new single titled "Pumila Ka."
The song, which features OPM artist Raven, debuted digitally on Wednesday, January 19, with an accompanying music video.
In an Instagram post, Maris said she dedicates her new single to those who have been waiting in line for a long time.
Just like her previous singles, "Pumila Ka" was arranged and produced by musician Rico Blanco, who also happens to be Maris's boyfriend.
Its music video was directed by Treb Monteras. As of this writing, it has garnered more than 57,000 views and 7,300 "likes" on Maris's YouTube channel.
"Pumila Ka" is Maris's follow up to her pop-infused tracks "Ate Sandali" and "Asa Naman", released in 2021 under Rico's own record label Balcony Entertainment.
The songs are part of the actress's upcoming extended play record which she has been hinting at since late last year. Speaking with celebrity lensman BJ Pascual, she said: "Lahat ng music videos, lahat ng styling, kami-kami lang. ’Yung EP ko is a way for me to express myself and my emotions, kung anong gusto ko, kung anong mood ko sa song na 'to."
Maris and Rico first collaborated in 2019, on a track titled "Abot Langit". They also appeared in the music video for it.
Since then, Rico has produced Maris's songs, such as "Not For Me" and "Kahit Na Anong Sablay."
