After the confirmation of Charice’s movie “Here Comes The Boom” with Salma Hayek and Kevin James, another news relating Charice came out last April 7, 2011.
Peter Gene Hernandez (a.k.a. Bruno Mars) will be having a 2-day concert here in Philippines. April 7 will be held at Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City and at the Araneta Coliseum, Manila, April 8. He’s known for his worldwide, award-winning songs like “Just The Way You Are“, “Grenade” and his collaborations with Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” and with B.o.B.’s “Nothin’ On You“. He got 7 Grammy Nominations and won “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance” for his song “Just The Way You Are”
He was signed to Atlantic Records as a song-writer/producer in 2009. Then after writing songs for artists like B.o.B., Flo-rida, K’naan and Cee-lo Green, his vocal ability was discovered. In 2010, he released his debut album “Doo-Wops and Hooligans” and gained more popularity with his amazing tracks.
Before his concerts here in Philippines, he got interviews from our local interviewers and one of them is “Ricky Lo”. So he got the chance to speak with Bruno Mars and asked him questions. See the questions here
These are the questions that captured me..
Have you worked with any Filipino artist?
“Yeah. I just produced a song for Charice. It’s called Before It Explodes.”
What’s the song about?
“It’s a love song. It says, ‘We have to stop the madness before our love explodes’.”
Yes! It’s really a love song. And it was first recorded by X-Factor Season 5 winner Alexandra Burke Ft. Bruno Mars. But it wasn’t released as a single. It’s not also part of her 2009 album “Overcome”. As Bruno Mars producing this song for Charice, I know it will be a hit! The song is actually catchy and very positive. They will now include the song for Charice’s upcoming sophomore album and expected to be one of its single. Charice’s team is really working hard for this album and prepping up for a Billboard hit! 2 songs from the album are now titled. “Saved By A Love Song” and “Before It Explodes”. I hope to see her song “Louder” to be on the new album, soon!
