Pinoy Big Brother Lucky 7 love team McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson recently released their first single together, which is a revival of the song "If We Fall In Love."
The song was first popularized by Yeng Constantino and RJ Jimenez in 2006, who were then scholars of the reality search Pinoy Dream Academy.
Back then, it became a big hit when it was used as a theme song of the Koreanovela Princess Hours that was aired on ABS-CBN.
Elisse admitted that at first, she was not really familiar with the song.
She admitted, "Noong sinabi na yun yung kakantahin namin, at first, hindi ako masyadong familiar kasi parang old na siya na song, ngayon na lang ulit bumalik."
However, upon reading the lyrics, she realized, "Parang sabi ko, bagay. Ang hirap sabihin na bagay! Pero yung na-feel ko po, sakto sa amin."
For his part, McCoy said that the song somewhat reflects his current relationship with Elisse.
He pointed out, "Napaka-coincidence lang kasi parang 'If We Fall In Love,' kumbaga, may tanong pa rin sa nangyayari sa amin, kung ano ba talaga yung meron.
"Kaya sakto po, kung ano po yung nangyayari din sa amin."
What is the real score between McCoy and Elisse?
McCoy answered, "Sabi naman po namin sa ibang interview, nandun kami sa point na, di pa namin alam sa isa't isa. Go with the flow lang sa nangyayari."
Describing their relationship, Elisse said, "Parang sa stage na kung nasan yung samahan namin ngayon, dapat parang magfocus sa isa't isa!"
DOING AN ALBUM. Select reporters, including PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), were among the first to listen to the McLisse love team's single last Thursday, June 1.
McCoy and Elisse were both laughing while listening to the song at the ELJ Building.
According to the Kapamilya stars, they were experiencing jitters since they were both excited and nervous about the outcome of their duet.
In fact, the two did not expect that they would release a single after their PBB Lucky 7 stint.
McCoy said with a smile, "Never kong inisip talaga na magkakaroon ako ng kanta sa buong buhay ko. Pero nagpapasalamat nga ako kay Lord!"
Elisse then quipped, "Noong PBB niloloko lang namin, e, na paglabas namin, may photo album kami!"
The McLisse love team has the same wish for their songs.
Elisse said, "Gusto ko sana, if ever, magkaroon din ng Tagalog para makarelate po lahat."
McCoy then added, "Mas magreach out sa Filipinos. Sana magkaroon din next time."
They are also looking forward to doing an album in the future.
