One of the challenges faced by graduates of reality-based singing contest is longevity. The viewers may root for you during the contest duration, but album and concert tickets sale determines if you’re bound to stay long in the business or be tagged as a ‘one hit wonder’.
Yeng Constantino is one of the very few reality-based singing contest winner who continues to shine as time passes by. Crowned as the ‘Grand Star Dreamer’ of Pinoy Dream Academy in 2006, the Rock Princess has produced five albums to date. Her debut album ‘Salamat’ reached “3x Platinum Record” and it featured her signature songs ‘Salamat’, ‘Hawak Kamay’, Time In’, Cool Off’, ‘Pangarap Lang and ‘If We Fall in Love’. The lovely part there is she wrote 7 out of 10 songs!
I’ve blogged about Solenn Heussaff a couple of times. I just love this girl!
Just two months ago, the French-Filipina celebrity launched her sophomore album entitled ‘SOS’ or ‘Sinner Or Saint’. Her first album was a success. I was even invited on the music video shoot for the song ‘Our First Time’. Her kindness and jolly personality stuck on my mind. Who wouldn’t want to support her anyway?
I bought a digital copy of SOS via iTunes. I listened to the preview snippets and I loved it!
SOS contains 10 original tracks and 2 revivals. Boy band fanatics have the reason to dance with her own version of Backstreet Boys’ “All I Have to Gove” and Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River”.
The carrier single from the album is entitled “Diva”. It is a tagalog song about a female celebrity who acts as if she’s the most important woman in the world. The music video is quite queer and colorful! Another song with a twist is “Never Met a Man”, which Solenn co-wrote.
