Members of the all-male hip-hop group Ex Battalion praised Alden Richards for the work that he did in their latest collaboration.
They worked on the theme song of Alden's upcoming GMA-7 prime-time teleserye titled Victor Magtanggol.
Composed by Ex Battalion, the theme song titled "Superhero Mo" was performed by Alden with the hip-hop group.
The group also known as Ex B shot to fame because of the hit song "Hayaan Mo Sila."
The members described Alden as fun to work with and “makulit.”
“Ang bilis lang naming natapos yung pag-record nung kanta kasi marunong siya. Hindi siya nahihirapan,” said Ex Battalion member Archie at the press conference of Viva Entertainment’s collaboration with the group, together with their manager, Ai-Ai delas Alas.
The presscon took place at Le Reve Pool and Events Place, Quezon City last Friday, June 1.
According to Archie, Alden was also observant.
“Minsan nga siya pa ang nakakapansin ng parang siya pa yung, ‘May mali.’ Talagang alam mong naiintindihan niya kung ano ang ginagawa niya.”
Mark, another member, added, “At gusto niya. Gusto niya talaga. Saka ang pogi niya."
Member Archie said that writing the theme song for Alden’s upcoming project was a humbling experience.
He quipped, “Kasi dati nung walang naniniwala sa amin, magyayabang agad ako. Wala namang may paki sa ‘kin.
“Nung ginawa namin yon, galing sa malalaking tao ang compliment, para saan ba ba’t ka pa magyayabang?
“Yung mga nagbigay compliment sa ‘yo galing sa malalaking tao, kaya ikaw tanggalin mo yung yabang mo.”
Through the partnership of Viva with Ex Battalion and Ai-Ai, the entertainment company hopes for a collaboration that will benefit all of them.
“Ang grupo [Ex Battalion] and Miss Ai, nag-partner kami para makatulong sa pag-enhance ng kanilang career,” explained Viva Entertainment head Vincent del Rosario.
He added that they will produce a movie that will star Ai-Ai and Ex Battalion. There are also plans to hold concerts for the group.
