Jason Dy’s dream collab partner is Sarah Geronimo

Celebrating his ninth anniversary in showbiz this 2024, Jason Dy reveals that his wish for next year is a collab with popstar and The Voice coach Sarah Geronimo.

Dy articulated this during the launch of his latest single “Magsabi Ka Lang.”

Siyempre, ang wish ko talaga na sana matuloy is (a collab) with Sarah Geronimo. Sana matuloy ’yun.  I am writing a song and I will try to pitch kay Coach Sarah. Sana magka-duet kami (Of course, my wish that I really hope will push through is a collab with Sarah Geronimo. I am writing a song and I will try to pitch it to Coach Sarah.  I hope we can do a duet),” Dy said after his performance.

Now, he looks forward to releasing more music and doing concert tours this year while also appearing as a judge in the new season of Tawag ng Tanghalan, which is a singing competition on It’s Showtime.

 “I’m hoping to release more singles and collaborate with other artists. I just recently became a hurado (judge) on Tawag ng Tanghalan, which is super fun. Kind of like a full-circle moment. And we’re cooking up some concert tours with fellow Cornerstone artists here and abroad,” he shared, referring to the talent agency he belongs to.

“’Magsabi Ka Lang’ is part of the songs I’ve written many years ago. Unti-unti ko lang siyang nilalabas (Slowly I am releasing it). Basically, the concept was going through stages of grief, pero hindi (but not) about death [and instead] the death of relationships. [It’s about]pinagdadaanan lang ng isang tao (what a person goes through) emotionally, starting to feel bad about the relationship, ’yung unti-unti na kayong maghihiwalay (like you’re on slowly separating).”

“It’s a bargaining phase,” he added. “Nakikipag-usap siya sa partner niya, ‘Ayusin natin’ (He was talking to his partner, ‘Let’s fix this). So, nasa bargaining stage siya,” he added.

Dy revealed that he wrote the track along with his previous singles “Gusto Ko Pa” and “Ulit-Ulit” that both mirror the stages of grief.

His new single “Magsabi Ka Lang” will be available on various digital music streaming platforms starting this Wednesday. Watch its official lyric video on YouTube. For more details, follow Star Music on Facebook, X (Twitter), Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.

Why irate fans initially plan to boycott DonBelle series

Fans of Maris Racal and Anthony Jennings initially seethed with anger and planned to boycott Can’t Buy Me Love, the series with Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano as lead stars, when a recent episode seems to foreshadow the end of their idols’ Irene Tiu and Snoop Manansala characters in the show.

Racal’s Facebook post got SnoopRene fans alarmed: “that’s it for snorene. salamat sa pagmamahal (Thank you for the love).” It then drew violent reactions from fans.

“Nooooooo. Invested na kami ng jowa ko sa snorene. panindigan nyo kami Maris Racal (Noooooo. My boyfriend and I are already invested in SnoRene.  Stand by us, Maris Racal),” wailed one fan.

 “Kayo ang rason why nae-excite ako sa series. Moreeeeeeee (You’re the reason why I get excited in the series. Moreeeeeee),” another one wailed.

But a more recent episode, which suggests that the pair will still see each other even when Irene will be sent to Bulacan, have appeased Jennings and Racal’s fans. Here are some of their posts:

Sobrang kakakiligggg kayo alam nyo ba yon? 43 na ako pero ung kilig ko sweet 16 salute!!! ang gling nyo both (You’re so worth the giddiness, you know that? I am already 43, but my giddiness is like that of a sweet 16. Salute. You’re both great).”

Grabe ka miss maris nagrant na ako sa nanay ko na wala nang Snorene. PLS ILY BOTH (You’re so great Maris. I ranted to my mom that there is no longer Snorene).”

Buti na lang. Bardagulan nyo lang ni poop ang inaabangan ko (It’s a good thing. Your banter with Poop is what I was always looking forward to).”

“Accclaaaaaaaaaaaaa wag ka kasing magjjoke ng ganyan paano ung mga may maintenance na taga FB hahahaahah (Accclaaaaa, don’t make a joke like that, what about those who take maintenance meds who follow you on FB).”

“Gaaaahd. I can never get tired of you two! Napakagagaling niyo hirap niyong hindian!” (You’re so good it’s hard to say no).
