"A singer as fresh and promising as Frencheska deserves only the best and as such, GMA Records has chosen the luxurious and elegant Manila Hotel as venue for her music video particularly the very famous Champagne Room.
"As Frencheska sings to the lyrics of her next big hit, the music video showcases the captivating beauty of this romantic hotspot perfect for elegant parties or intimate gatherings.
"Composed by Vehnee Saturno, "Isama Mo Ako" will be one of the theme songs for the sequel of Captain Barbell, which Frencheska will be joining as well. Despite being new in the industry, her songs have already been identified with high-rating programs and blockbuster movies such as My Valentine Girls, Alakdana, and Temptation of Wife. Frencheska will also be Channel V’s "Take Off Artist of the Month" for April.
