Kim Chiu returns to the recording scene eight years after her releasing her first album.
In 2007, Kim released her first album Gwa Ai Di, which reached a gold record status.
This time, she is back with a sophomore album titled Chinita Princess.
When PEP asked Kim Chiu what song she would dedicate to Xian Lim, the actress quickly answered that it would have to be "Mr. Right."
Does Kim Chiu believe that Xian Lim is her "Mr. Right"?
"Sana siya nga, sana siya nga si Mr. Right.
"Si Xian. Sana siya na nga.
"Alam naman po natin kung sino ang pinakamalapit sa akin ngayon," Kim said this about her rumored boyfriend Xian Lim during the launch of her second album titled Chinita Princess held earlier today, April 21, at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery, Mother Ignacia Street, Quezon City.
Kim then answered the question by singing some of the lyrics from the song:
"Sa kanta nga, may tanong na: 'Ikaw nga ba si Mr. Right?
"'Ikaw nga ba magbabalik ngiti sa aking mga mata?'
"'Si Mr. Right ka ba?' May question mark."
What are the qualities that make her believe that Xian is "Mr. Right" for her?
"Isa siyang lumang tao," she quipped.
Kim turned serious as she explained, "Makapamilya siya at laking mommy. Iba talaga pag pinalaki ng mommy dahil may respeto sa babae."
Does she want Xian to be "Mr. Right" for her?
"Tingnan na lang po natin sa mga kanta," she responded.
To prepare for her return to the recording scene, Kim took voice lessons for six months and she had guitar lessons for three months.
Kim says her album holds clues regarding the state of her mind and heart right now.
"Yung buong laman ng album ko, yun ang state of mind ko, kung ano ang nararamdaman ko. Kasi mayroon kaming almost 20 songs tapos kasama akong pumili ng kanta sa album. So parang sabi ko gusto ko positive.
"Ayaw ko ng lungkot-lungkutan, yung emo-emo. Gusto ko kung ano ang nararamdaman ko ngayon at kung ano ang gusto kong iparamdam sa ibang tao, gusto ko nasa loob ng CD ko."
What is her reaction to those who will criticize her for venturing once again in the recording scene?
Kim said with a smile "May song ako for bashers, inunahan ko na sila. May kanta ako na 'Say We Don't Care.'
"You have to do your best at ito na po ang best ko."
Does she think she will be able to reach the level of top recording artists in the music industry?
"Hindi naman, ang kapal naman ng mukha ko! Sadyang katuwaan lang po ito."
The track listing of Chinita Princess includes the following songs "Mr. Right," "Darating Din," "Wala Man Sa 'Yo ang Lahat," "Say We Don't Care, "Someday (Crazy Love)," and "Express Yourself."
