Claudia Barretto is ready to make her mark in the music industry with the release of her self-titled debut EP on May 18, 2018 (Friday), 8:00 p.m. at Yes Please, 11th Avenue corner 38th Street, Uptown Bonifacio, Taguig City.
Coming from a family of Filipino entertainment royalty, Claudia has opted to follow her passions and pursue a career in music, instead of following the path of her parents, sister, and aunts in the field of acting. The young, pretty, and talented singer, with her raw potential and certified hits will certainly be a force to reckon with in the years to come.
After months of anticipation, Universal Records proudly presents Claudia Barretto’s five-track debut EP. Leading up to the EP’s launch, three tracks, featuring different collaborations with local and internationally acclaimed artists have already been released. Her debut single ‘Stay,’ was written by popular singer-songwriter Moira dela Torre, garnering more than 1 million streams on Spotify, with its music video garnering over 500,000 views in just one month. Following this success, Claudia collaborated with Spotify Viral singer-songwriter-producer Fern. to produce the track ‘You’. In addition to this, she has also released the song ‘Finally Found It,’ which was well-received internationally and playlisted in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines.
Rounding up her EP are previously unreleased track ‘Poison,’ and yet another exciting collaboration. The ‘Finally Found It – Remix’ features non-other than 2017’s 17-year-old American R&B rising artist Marteen. Cousin of breakout artist Kehlani, Marteen definitely adds more flavor to the hit song; a collab that will surely be a sure-fire hit.
Talking about the process of making her EP, Claudia says “Working on it was both a terrifying and exciting time for me. Terrifying because on the EP, I was really trying to get to know myself and find my identity as an artist, and exciting because I feel like after this, it’s clearer to me what I want to pursue in the future. I also love that I was able to collaborate with passionate people on this project – it has been a real honour to even be identified as an artist by these people, and I’m looking forward to make more music, this time with a more distinct sound.”
Claudia’s self-titled debut EP, featuring her singles ‘Stay,’ ‘You,’ and ‘Finally Found It,’ along with two new tracks, is now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, Amazon, and Spotify under Universal Records.
