Teen actress Alexa Ilacad is now officially a recording artist! After collaborating with Gracenote on "Gusto Ko", she has her own single out called "Pakipot, Suplado". It's from her solo debut album under Star Music which will be launched soon!
Written by Gracenote frontwoman Eunice Jorge, Alexa's new song is about the struggles of young love between a pakipot girl and a suplado guy.
We visited the music video shoot of "Pakipot, Suplado" at Marist School and we got the chance to catch up with Alexa herself along with her director Kean Cipriano!
The other half of the NLex love team, Nash Aguas, appears in this music video! According to Nash and Alexa, they both really enjoyed the shoot and they're glad that everything fell into place.
Also part of the video is Gracenote. Eunice recalled how she was able to write the song "Pakipot, Suplado". She thought of her young self and tried to empathize with today's teenagers. "Nasulat ko s’ya noong nagkwentuhan kami ni Alexa," the vocalist revealed.
For his part, Kean said that he's blessed to work with the Sindikato crew in this music video and they had fun shooting it. "I'm very much honored na ako ‘yung gumawa ng unang music video ni Alexa," the Callalily singer and actor noted.
