After the success of Troy Laureta's OPM Collective Vol. 1 album "Kaibigan," he's back with another star studded album. This time the follow-up is Giliw: A Troy Laureta OPM Collective Vol. 2 with guests like All-4-One, Jona, Jake Zyrus, and Nicole Scherzinger. Listen now on streaming platforms!
There's additional 13 tracks that leaves us with a total of 22 songs from both collections. One of the tracks we're excited for is the song, "Nandito Ako" which features Nicole Scherzinger and Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid. Troy is able to bring artists both Filipino and non-Filipino to celebrate music especially OPM. Artists like Deborah Cox and Ruben Studdard perform a duet for "Magkasuyo Buong Gabi" and nail the Tagalog song!
In the Vol. 1 Collection, Nicole Scherzinger shared how Troy was available to her and all artists on feedback, tips, and collaboration. He made the transition seamless for them and an enjoyable experience. She was featured on the track "Pangako" in Vol. 1 and it's so cool to see she came back for another round. Check out our interview with her and Troy where they talk about the song and loads of other stories!
Seeing a crossover between artists taking a stab in singing in a different language and genre is credible to listen to. A new generation gets to hear classic OPM hits reimagined with some of their favorite performers taking the mic. It's an ultimate crossover between people and genres who want to share OPM on a global spotlight.
