Inanunsyo ng Filipino-American producer at songwriter na si Troy Laureta ang isang kantang isasabuhay ng original Pinoy music (OPM) pillar at Starmusic artist na si Jona Viray.
Sa isang Instagram post, inihayag ng award-winning producer ang espesyal na piyesang “Someone To Love Me” na aawitin ng Fearless Diva para sa kanyang upcoming album na “Giliw.”
“’Someone To Love Me’ is extra special to me, as it will be the sole original composition, I wrote with @cheesyfbaby and @cami1734. We wrote this in our garage years ago, and I remember these as our humble beginnings. I remember the countless sleepless nights, making tracks and recording until 4am. Those nights I hold on to forever! And I’m so proud that we were able to include this on ‘Giliw,’” ani Troy.
Kilala sa kanyang malawak na vocal range, si Jona ang ang pinili ni Troy na magbibigay buhay sa kanta.
“I needed someone fearless to deliver this! There is only one Fearless Diva and that is @jona, her talent is only matched by her spirit, which is beautiful and she is one of the kindest women I’ve met in the industry!” ani Troy.
Pinasalamatan ni Troy ang Awit-winning OPM artist sa pinakabagong collaboration na ito.
“Jona, you absolutely brought the house down with this! I’m so proud to work with you, and thank you for trusting me with your gift and for breathing new life into something so personal to me! Maraming salamat, Jona! ”
Samantala, ilang fans ni Jona ang nagpahayag ng excitement sa pinakabagong kanta na bubuhayin ni Jona.
“Troy Laureta masterpiece!!!! Jona is truly the fearless diva to deliver this song!!!” sabi ng isang fan.
“That sweet, serene voice, fearless is not the word. She is more than a fearless show off artist, her artistry is so lovely ” pahayag ng isa pang avid supporter ni Jona.
“Whaaaaaa can’t wait to listen to the whole song.”
Sa darating na Disyembre 3 nakatakdang i-release ang kanta.
“JONA IS BACK! HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON AT ASAP! ”
Matatandaang nitong Abril pa huling nakitang nag-perform si Jona sa Sunday musical variety show na “ASAP Natin ‘To” sa ABS-CBN.
Nauna na niyang sinabi sa mga pahayag na nais niya munang mamuhay nang tahimik.
“I believe we’ve all had a little more free time over the last two years, but I’ve realized what I really need is silence,” sabi ni Jona sa isang Facebook post nitong Oktubre.
