Dubsmash Queen Maine Mendoza is breaking out of her lip-syncing throne to sing live — Universal Records Philippines confirmed last week that the phenomenal star has signed with the record label.

Universal Records shared via Instagram #TheBigReveal video introducing Mendoza as their latest singer. Wearing a black faux leather jacket with the words “UNIVERSAL” scribbled on the back, as well as a cartoonized pink ice cream with a cherry on top, Mendoza beamed as she posed for the camera. At one point, the words, “She’s ready,” appeared on the screen.

The confirmation came following the speculations surrounding an Instagram post by Universal Records on June 11. The record label uploaded a photo of a woman with her back turned while wearing the above-mentioned jacket.
