MNL48 Is Ready To Be Your Next Idol Group!
Karen Jane Ng
After being formed on It's Showtime, MNL48 has finally launched their debut single under Star Music! "Aitakatta - Gustong Makita" is a Tagalized version of their sister group and Japanese phenom act AKB48's "Aitakatta". It will be part of their upcoming album along with five other tracks.
Among the 48 members, only the top 16 took part in the debut with the remaining girls expected to release their own projects soon.
Despite being inspired by a J-Pop icon, MNL48 is bent on promoting their Pinoy signature by featuring the country's historical spots in their future music videos. In fact, the MV for "Aitakatta" was shot in Intramuros and Manila Bay. (Yep, we got to see it first during the launch!)
The members also expressed their hopes to work with the likes of Sarah Geronimo and Morissette Amon - or even Maja Salvador if given the chance to break into acting!
"Aitakatta - Gustong Makita" music video will debut on MYX Premiere this August 31.
