MYXclusive: MAJA SALVADOR Collaborates With Thai Singer TOR SAKSIT!

Maja Salvador is truly indestructible!
Aside from her wildly successful TV drama, our Majasty returns to the music scene with the new single "Falling Into You" featuring Thai artist Tor Saksit!
While Maja flew to Bangkok for the recording session last September, Tor is now in town for the promo and music video shoot.
"Sobra akong excited sa collab namin and soon maririnig niyo na din siya," the Wildflower actress and "Dahan-Dahan" singer told MYX. "It's a love story, it's a love song. Punung-puno ng pagmamahalan at feeling ko 'pag napakinggan niyo yung kantang 'yun, mai-inlove talaga kayo."
Maja is very grateful for the "big opportunity" from her Ivory Music family. "Hindi ko alam kung anong meron sa voice ko, kung ba't ako ang napili pero kahit ano pa 'yan, at least tayo ang nanalo. Tayo ang nagkita-kita sa final round," she joked.
Asked what it's like to work with the international performer, Maja said it was more like a vacation. "Kasi very accommodating yung team niya especially si Tor. Talagang lunch hanggang dinner tinatanong nila kami ng tinatanong. At na-appreciate ko 'yun."
"I think updated din si Tor [sa schedule ko] so he's always [asking] 'kamusta ako', 'gusto ko bang mag-rest', 'kaya ko pa ba'"
Amazing Weekend! Just finished recording here in Thailand @karmasoundstudios for a new single. It's a great collaboration with Thailand's famous Song-writer/Singer/Pianist Hearthrob @torsaksit Thank You, @BecteroMusic @ivorymusicph and to our producer, Victor for this wonderful project. Thank You, Lord, for giving me new friends! This project has truly been a blessing to me.🙏🙏🙏
For Tor, it's just his first time visiting the country and teaming up with a Filipino artist but he already felt "very much connected and very close to the Philippines." He revealed, "When I was in elementary and high school, all my teachers are from the Philippines... my first basketball coach... my choir teacher, piano teacher... So I feel very strong connections. So it's good to be able to be here. It's very warm."
Both are all-praises for each other! Tor says Maja is a "natural" while the latter calls him a "genius" in return.
"Kapag kausap ko siya kahit hindi about music, alam mong mahal niya ang life. Ang dami niyang alam sa buhay. Tyaka 'pag napanood niyo siya mag-play ng piano, NAMAN! Talagang, MY GOD, bakit hindi ako nabasbasan ng ganong talent? Sobrang galing!" Maja gushed.
