She has penetrated the world of cosmetology, fashion designing, painting, modeling, acting, and now— singing. Who's she? She's none other than Solenn Heussaff.
This "multi-slashie," as they call her, is now trying her luck in the music industry as she launches her self-titled album, Solenn.
The album is composed of 10 tracks, eight of which are cover songs, and two being original compositions.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the media were able to interview Solenn last August 10 at Redbox in Eastwood Libis, Quezon City.
She told us that the song "Chemistry," which is included in her album, is an original song that she composed with OPM singer Rico Blanco.
Singer/songwriter Rico Blanco was formerly the lead vocalist for the OPM band Rivermaya. He is now a solo artist.
"Actually I wrote the lyrics, we met off," she said.
"Tapos, parang genius siya, like, we just sat in his studio tapos he said, 'Okay, maybe you could change this one, change this paragraph.'
"So, we worked on the lyrics together. Tapos we started playing with the beat."
Solenn said she met Rico when she was thirteen years old. That's why she got excited when MCA Music Inc., was able to convince him to work with her.
"Actually I've known him since I was 13, we've been friends.
"I know he doesn't write for other people anymore, but he got in touch with MCA, then they suggested it.
"Of course, I bow down to him, so I'm very, very excited."
She even revealed a little secret about Rico Blanco.
"What people don't know about Rico is he super loves to dance!" she said laughing.
