Charice Is Absolutely At The Top Baby!
Charice is definitely going global after the release of her single ôPyramidö in which her labelmate Iyaz is featured both in the song and music video. And just last April 12 Charice debuted ôPyramidö music video in the U.S. with a 24-hour exclusive on www.oprah.com. Oprah who has been a huge supporter of the 17-year-old, tagging her as one of the most talented girls in the world, has reportedly invited Charice to perform on ôThe Oprah Winfrey Showö on May 11 to launch her first international album æChariceÆ.
The video was shot at the Orpheum Theatre, in downtown Los Angeles last March 8. The video connects the song through its lyrics not just the title per se. A big part of the video shows Charice taking the mic and starts imagining to be performing before a huge empty theater, after not making it to the audition call-backs. And Iyaz from the audience seat records her performance using his video phone and shows that his support for Charice is forever to stay just like a pyramid no matter what kind of storm or earthquake may come their way.
ôPyramidö is a collaboration with Iyaz, whoÆs famous for the international smash hit ôReplayöùthe # 1 song in UK & U.S. in the past months. On the other hand, ôPyramidö currently holds the #1 spot on RX 93.1Æs radio chart for three consecutive weeks now. And is constantly climbing other radio charts in the metro. ôPyramidö is one of the newest and hottest songs at the moment; hence it is garnering a lot of airplay all over town! SheÆs undeniably at the top with all the success she has incurred for the past years, starting from bottom-up, this song can symbolize as her career being built solidly on the ground, just like a pyramid.
Also, Pyramid now has 15 remixesù from notable DJs Barry Harris, Jonathan Peters, and Dave Aude. These are currently available for download on Amazon.com & iTunes.
Songwriters and producers that worked on ChariceÆs forthcoming album are David Foster, Diane Warren, Sean Kingston, Billy Steinberg (MadonnaÆs ôLike A Virgin,ö Cyndi LauperÆs ôTrue Colors,ö Whitney HoustonÆs ôSo Emotionalö), Josh Alexander (JojoÆs ôToo Little Too Lateö), Allan Rich (NÆSYNCÆs ôI Drive Myself Crazyö), Klaus Derendorf (Josh GrobanÆs ôCloserö), Mr. Fantastic (The Cheetah Girls) and Drew Ryan Scott (S. Korean Group Super JuniorÆs ôSorry, Sorryö). Backed up by the biggest names in music, entertainment, label industry Charice definitely is in for a big ride with her first international debut album. Without a doubt, this record is packed with hits in the making!
ChariceÆs international debut album will become available under Warner Music Philippines on May 11, 2010 just a day after her 18th birthday. A way to celebrate with her is to grab a copy of her self-titled first international album when it hits the record bars nationwide!
