MYXclusive: KARENCITTA's Time Has Finally Arrived!
Karen Jane Ng
Yo! This month's MYX Spotlight artist Karencitta is starting off her 2018 right on track so prepare to drop more glasses this time around.
After the viral success of her song "Cebuana", the US-based hitmaker now has the best of both worlds as she officially signs on to VIVA Artist Management as a Pinoy recording artist.
"Overwhelming and humbling at the same time," Karencitta said of joining the local label. "I just feel so good. Everything I worked hard from 1995 til 2018 has finally arrived from "Cebuana" record."
Karencitta is also signed under Grammy winner Jon Ingoldsby's company Yellow Bird Records in Los Angeles. And though that makes her stay in the Philippines temporary, she swears to not box herself and balance every shot she'll have from both sides of the world.
Among her future projects with VIVA include a lead role in the musical movie Indak alongside Yassi Pressman and Ella Cruz and a guest performance in Jadine's Revolution concert on February 9 at the Big Dome. Grabiha!
Speaking of Jadine, Karencitta revealed her previous encounter with James Reid just before her breakthrough in the country! "I think one of James' friends inboxed me asking if I would be interested in collaborating with Sam Concepcion and James Reid. Sinabi ko sa friend niya 'Sige, sure' and I want to get in the studio to see if I would get along with James. Kasi I'm very choosy in who I would want to collaborate with."
"I met James here sa VIVA office and I saw na parang humble siya, he's musically inclined, he has good songs, a good dancer, why not?" she continued. Asked if the supposed duet is still in the works, she said "Surprise lang!"
Moreover, she teased plans for her upcoming EP. "I believe that Karencitta's music is constantly evolving. Wala siyang fixed emotional schedule no. So sometimes I'm like Moira dela Torre and sometimes I feel like party-party. I'm just human. Tao lang po. Walang puro pop, puro ballad. I'm not so meticulous to music branding."
