MYXclusive: Here's The Story Behind RICO BLANCO And IV OF SPADES' Collab "Nagbabalik"
It's out! Rico Blanco teamed up with IV Of Spades for a brand new original track called “Nagbabalik” and it’s out now in different streaming platforms.
During our MYXclusive interview with Rico and IVOS at the music video shoot of "Nagbabalik", the OPM icon said that he originally wanted to give the said song to an artist he liked during his hiatus as a performer but “it didn’t work out”. “When I stumbled on this song again, parang eksakto naisip ko baka pwede naming gawin," Rico said.
After playing the demo in front of IV Of Spades, the boys quickly did their 'magic'. “Naturally parang nagkakaroon ng synchronization of ideas or taste so bukod sa natuto kami, parang nagkaroon din kami to express ourselves kasama ‘yung isa sa pinakakilalang musician or composer/songwriter sa Pilipinas na nag-inspire rin sa generation namin," said IVOS bassist and vocalist Zild Benitez.
Moreover, Rico revealed that his musical taste really synced with that of IV of Spades. “No offense sa mga kabanda ko dati pero iba ‘yung music na pinananggagalingan ng lahat ng mga naging kabanda ko dati. So nag-grow ako tuloy papunta sa direction nila. Pero ito kasing sa kanila parang, ganito mismo ‘yung gusto kong, ahm, siguro taste-wise, ito ‘yung pinakamalapit na nakatrabaho o naka-jamming ko," he shared.
