Chito Miranda, Nicole Asensio to release new music this month
Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda and General Luna lead Nicole Asensio are set to treat fans to their new music later this month.
The upcoming song, which has been titled “Poblacion,” will be dropping on Oct. 16, Asensio announced via Instagram yesterday, Oct. 2.
“New month… new music!!! This one I’ve been excited to release for a year now… it has always been a dream of mine to sing with @chitomirandajr Sobrang astig nya (He is so cool)!!! Kahit anong genre (Whatever the genre is)!” Asensio said.
“Thank you, Lord for this dream come true! Plus nadagdagan pa ng mga musical genius from #AMPBigband [Asosasyon ng Musikang Pilipino Big Band]!!! Astig (Plus, it was given the touch of musical geniuses from the AMP Big Band! Cool)!” the singer-songwriter added.
Not much has been revealed about the song, but Asensio noted in her post that “#OPMjazz meets #OPMrock” in her and Miranda’s team-up.
The two earlier teased fans with “Poblacion” last February, with Asensio even sharing snippets from what appears to be the song’s music video featuring veteran actress Cherie Gil.
Miranda, meanwhile, also took to Instagram on Feb. 1 to announce that “Poblacion” was “coming soon.”
Asensio then thanked Miranda for teaming up with her, saying that having done so had ticked one thing off her bucket list.
“@chitomirandajr pinyaaaa!!!! I’m so honored and happy to have you here,” Asensio commented. “Bucket list ko makasama kita sa kanta (Collaborating with you in a song is included in my bucket list) and I got more than my wish coz you got to share your brilliant voice AND acting hehehe. I love you dear friend. Salamat (Thank you)!”
Prior to collaborating for “Poblacion,” Miranda and Asensio worked together by starring in the music video for Miranda and rapper Abra’s song “Diwata.” /ra
