Quinto has been vocal about her admiration for Velasquez, and now the pop singer revealed that a duet with Mrs. Alcasid – and Ogie Alcasid himself – is indeed in the works for her sophomore album.
“Pinaplano palang po, sana po mapasama doon sa second album ko ‘yung duet po namin ni Ms. Regine atsaka po ni Sir Ogie,” Quinto said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
The separate duet tracks with the Alcasids are expected to beef up Quinto’s second Star Records offering with more songs compared to her first.
“Excited na nga po akong mailabas ‘yung second album ko kasi halos mag-iisang taon na rin po ‘yung first album ko po na ‘Patuloy ang Pangarap,’" she said.
“Kaya sana nga po abangan ng mga Kapamilya natin ‘yung second album ko kasi mas marami na po ‘yung kanta na ilalagay namin dito, tsaka halos lahat po ‘yung mga theme songs na kinanta ko po sa mga teleserye ng ABS-CBN. Mayroon [rin] naman pong mga original songs dito.”
Before the full release of her next album, Quinto will be busy with guest concert performances here and abroad. Notably, she will be performing with international singer Brian McKnight at the Araneta Coliseum on March 16.
Now with a next album already in the pipeline, Quinto said she hopes to hold her own concert at the Big Dome soon.
“Sana po ngayong taon, susubukan ko naman mag-concert sa Araneta po,” she said.
