Star Magic talent and MYX VJ Donny Pangilinan is currently working an album to be released soon.
The 19-year-old teen personality inked a recording contract with Universal Records on June 20, 2017.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other reporters, Donny revealed how he was convinced to do this project which he considers as a new platform for him.
He narrated, “It’s a really long process actually. First of all, the trust I put in Universal for giving me this opportunity in this platform.
“It’s a new platform for me to engage not just with my fans but people in general.
“I really want to show a side of me that people haven’t seen yet and I feel like this is one of the best ways to do it.
With regards to his first single, the son of actress Maricel Laxa and businessman Anthony Pangilinan said that he will release it this July before doing a full-length album.
He said, “We have a couple of singles coming out. We’re already working actually on our first single.
“I can’t really say though what it’s gonna be about but we can tell you that it’s probably, we’re hoping it to get released end of July.
“I’m really excited for that. It’s gonna be like a fast-paced thing actually."
Since this will be the first time that Donny will be doing an album, the young artist wants to be very much involved in terms of producing and writing his songs.
However, he does not want to divulge any details yet as he wants to surprise his fans.
Donny explained, “I’m actually gonna be very involved in it so I’m really gonna help in terms of the writing process and the producing.
“I want everything to be a surprise since this is my first time doing something like this and I want people to be shocked. I’m gonna be very much involved.”
What genre will his fans be able to listen to in his forthcoming album?
He answered, “Good vibes, but a mix of like RnB and there’s also like sort of House EDM (Electronic Dance Music).
“It’s really chill. I don’t know how to explain it but there’s a lot of different genres in one.”
LIFE-CHANGING. Since his Magandang Buhay guesting in 2016 with his mom, Donny earned a lot of fans and projects started coming in.
These include guestings in ASAP and becoming a MYX VJ.
“It’s just been very humbling of course, there are a lot of engagement I’ve been getting.
“Of course, the fact that fans and supporters are still looking forward to seeing more of me, it just brings so much joy to me and of course my family, my parents have the best support system.”
In fact, his dad Anthony was present during the contract signing.
How is he handling all the popularity and attention from fans and the media?
The newbie personality responded, “Slowly and surely. I’m not letting it get into my head.
“That’s the number one thing my dad says because once you do that, dun na nagsimula yung mga problema.
“Just focusing on being myself I’ve always been ever since and just continue to not change.
“Know the number one purpose which is to inspire people and making sure that what I do gives a smile or changes people’s lives in any way. If I do that I am okay.”
