ALAMAT is back with another one! The P-Pop group has dropped "Say You Love Me," the lead track off their upcoming mini-album releasing later this year. The excitement for this new track helped the group trend on Philippines Twitter at #1 with the hashtag #ALAMATSayULoveMe.
The track was composed by Jin Chan and Emmanuel Salen and produced by NEXXFRIDAY. It gives us the familiar ALAMAT smooth R&B sound that we've recently heard in their last singles, but visually we get a more mature look from the group this time around. It looks like a new exciting era for the boys, and we're looking forward to seeing which direction the rest of the mini-album goes.
