WATCH: EDWARD BARBER Goes One-On-One With RURU MADRID!
Multitalented heartthrobs from the Kapamilya and Kapuso networks came face to face on the #1 music channel as MYX VJ Edward Barber sat down with GMA Music artist Ruru Madrid for a MYXclusive interview!
And at the end of their 15-minute long conversation, we found out a lot of new things about the 21-year old actor-singer. Apparently, Ruru comes from a family of musicians. His father, for one, used to be in a band when he was young. Despite this, the young star didn't know how to sing, dance, or act prior to joining show business.
Lucky for us, Ruru learned to hone his skills as an actor and eventually as a recording artist. A true OPM fan, he named Eraserheads, Parokya ni Edgar, Hale, Sponge Cola, December Avenue, I Belong To The Zoo, and Agsunta as his musical influences.
Ruru also got to talk briefly about his debut single "Nawawala" and the struggles of shooting the accompanying visuals. "Sobra akong na-awkward kapag yung nagpapa-cute [ako] habang kumakanta. Hindi ko alam kung ano yung gagawin ko. Pero sa mga part na iyakan, mas magaan siya sa'kin gawin," he said to VJ Edward.
The Kapuso actor has other tracks in his arsenal that he has been sitting on for quite some time now. The first is "Maghihintay", which will be released soon as his next single, while he has written two to three more songs that would hopefully make an appearance in his debut album under GMA Music.
