R&B Princess KYLA releases all hits album, ESSENCE OF SOUL now out nationwide released by Polyeast Records
Celebrating a 10-year-old career of a 28-year-old R&B royalty, compiled and re-released, brings together 28 of Kyla's biggest hits under one cover. On the strength of her eight albums after being launched in 2001, Kyla became one of the top-selling R&B artists of our generation which dominates her sleek, sexy urban sound including ôHanggang Ngayonö, ôNasaan Ka Naö, ôBack In Timeö, ôBeautiful Daysö, ôI Feel For Youö, ôNot Your Ordinary Girl,ö and a lot more. Polyeast Records proudly announces the release of ESSENCE OF SOUL: The Hits Collection and now available nationwide.
Kyla, after eight amazing albums in a row, releases a 2-CD collection with singles that made her a voice of a generation. Featuring her latest offering ôHanggang Wakas,ö is a duet with MalaysiaÆs pop/R&B artist Hazami. This song was originally written by Hazami and recorded in Bahasa with the title ôTekadö which means Determined. Our very own Arnie Mendaros translated the song in Tagalog and later on recorded by our R&B princess to share it to her fans.
Bursting onto the scene with the innocent and instantly infectious ôHanggang Ngayonö from her debut album ôWay to Your Heartö issued in 2001. This hits collection includes all the hits from the remake of the Keith MartinÆs ôBecause Of Youö to Phylis HymanÆs ôOld Friendö to soulful Michael JacksonÆs ôOne Day In Your Lifeö. The R&B ballads are ever-present with ôIÆll Be Over Youö, ôIf The Feeling Is Goneö and ôItÆs Over Now.ö Over the course of her career, Kyla bagged a handful of awards, worked with many of OPM writers and producers, and even topped the charts with other smash hit singles ôLove Will Lead You Backö which was originally popularized by Taylor Dane in the 90s, and another Michael Jackson remake ôHuman Natureö.
What this retrospective shows is that over the last 10 years, she has used her warm voice with subtlety and to excellent effect. Kyla has always created music for the people. Great melodies, simple lyrics and groovy sounds are all part of what makes Kyla still a star. This album is a record to listen to and a record of our times and for this generationùthat in our midst, Kyla became one of the few who made it for a decade and more decades to come.
Currently, Kyla is back in the studio for her eagerly-anticipated an all-original album slated this third quarter of 2010. Kyla signed with OctoArts/EMI Philippines/Polyeast Records in 2001 and has already released eight award winning albums since then. Recently, Kyla received nominations at 2010 MYX Music Awards including Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Mellow Video for ôOld Friendö, Favorite Collaboration and Favorite Song for "Back in Time" with Jay-R; and Favorite Remake for the album Heart 2 Heart. Kyla is a regular performer/host of GMAÆs Sunday variety show Party Pilipinas.
