Kathryn Bernardo is excited for the release of her debut album.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the bloggers' conference for her endorsement Juicy cologne, Kathryn disclosed: "This week mag-shoot na rin kami for the cover."
The ABS-CBN actress-turned-recording artist will have six songs and a number of bonus tracks in her debut studio album. She is now working on the song "You Don’t Know Me."
One of the tracks, "Mr. DJ" became a huge hit in the late '70s when it was performed by Sharon Cuneta.
Kathryn hopes that her version will be just as popular.
“Alam naman natin na super hit yung 'Mr. DJ' dati so sana magustuhan. Alam naman yata ng lahat ng tao yung song."
A video of her singing one of her album singles “You Don’t Know Me” recently became a Trending Topic on Twitter, which made Kathryn very happy.
“Masaya! Maraming salamat sa mga taong binigyan nila ng oras na panoorin yung ilang minutes na yun and sana after nila manood natuwa naman sana sila.”
She’s even more excited for her fans to watch the official music video that will be released soon.
“Excited ako na mapanood nila yung totoong music video. Na-excite ako na mapakinggan nila kasi super saya ko na nagawa ko yun.
"Super hands-on ako dun talagang yung mga ideas ko sinasabi ko sa kanila...very personalized so sana ma-enjoy nila 'pag nakita nila."
She narrated how she prepared for her album, “Of course, voice lessons, nagpa-practice ka kung saan-saan at maging mas confident ka sa sarili mo, para mas magawa mo yung pagkanta.”
DEDICATING A SONG TO DANIEL PADILLA. Her co-star Daniel Padilla already had two sold-out concerts at the Araneta Coliseum. Did he give her any tips when it comes to singing?
“Basta ano lang, natutuwa naman siya sa akin sa ngayon, very supportive naman siya sa akin and yun proud naman daw siya sa akin."
Kathniel fans can also look forward to Kathryn's collaboration with Daniel in this album.
“Alam ko kapag binili yung album may isang song dun na from KFC na duet kami nun."
When asked to choose a song from her album that she wants to dedicate to Daniel, the actress got flustered about making her choice.
“Para sa kanya? Ang pangit naman siguro kung 'Mr. DJ' given na given na siguro hindi naman kasi bagay yung mga kanta."
She ponders for a moment before anwwering: "'Mr. DJ' na lang, hindi naman 'You Don’t Know Me.' 'Mr. DJ' na lang!”
Kathryn then revealed that original compositions in her debut album include "Ikaw Na Nga Yata," "Temporary Déjà Vu," "You Don’t Know Me," and "K Thanks Bye."
The revivals featured are "Crush ng Bayan" and “Mr. DJ."
