RICO BLANCO Shares A Rare First Time!

Rico Blanco has penned songs with his ex-bandmates and has continued this even when he embarked on a solo career.

He has also delved into acting, became a product endorser, an entrepreneur, and recently, an online show host.

You would wonder, 'what else hasn't he done?'

The former Rivermaya frontman and certified hit-maker now collaborates with Gloc-9 for the Pinoy rapper's latest release entitled "Magda".

Not only is this the first time that these two OPM heavyweights worked on a song together, but this is one rare occasion that Rico Blanco merely sings a song someone else wrote.

"Medyo exciting siya sa akin kasi kadalasan meron akong malaking input doon sa kanta e. This time around, sa songwriting, halos wala, interpretation lang talaga," said Blanco in our MYXph exclusive interview during the "Magda" video shoot.

You can say he has now crossed out "sing the chorus to a Gloc-9 song" off of his bucket list.

He said that it wasn't that hard to prepare for this team-up because he really feels strongly for the song, which tells the story of a female engaged in the sex trade industry.

"Mararamdaman mo talaga yung kanta pagka-marinig mo. In fact nung nagrerecording ako ng parts ko nito, medyo hindi ko mapigilan yung emotions ko habang nag rerecord ako... very powerful song," declared our 2010 MYX Music Awards Favorite Male Artist.
