Just days before the David Foster & Friends tour kickoff, Charice recorded a new song with renowned music producer, Jim Beanz.
News of Charice’s new dance single first broke out in a press conference in Thailand last July 23, 2010. After being asked about her second single, Charice said that it would not be from her self-titled album, “Charice” since they’re looking for something faster and more dance than “Pyramid.” “Something like Lady Gaga,” Charice further explained. This could be in the right direction since “Pyramid” actually snagged the number one spot on the Billboard dance chart.
Charice then revealed through Twitter, last October 9, that she’s already working on this new mysterious dance song. She tweeted, “Hello everyone. Please follow mah boy @DaRealJimBeanz now! He’s amazing. Watta great song we just did!!!! :)”
And with producer Jim Beanz, no less! He has produced songs for and worked with some of the biggest names in the pop and RnB music scene. Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado, Tmbaland, Danity Kane, Justin Timberlake and P. Diddy. Beanz also tweeted about his work with Charice, “WASSUP YALL… STILL WORKIN ON THIS RECORD FOR @OfficialCharice … STRICTLY FOR DA CLUBS… LETS GOOOOOOO…!!!”
Some Charice fans might find this new dance song a bit different from the powerhouse ballads Charice usually does. But even in “Pyramid,” her vocals were never hidden by the fast beat of the song. And this could actually further help Charice in penetrating the mainstream or younger music field. Coupled with Glee, this might just be the perfect way to do that.

“I told Nelly to do Promiscuous Girl; she wasn’t sure about it, but it ended up being one of the biggest songs on the album. I always try to make a statement for an artist; I always want the song to stand strong.”
“I wanted Britney to have something to make her stand out from all of the other female singers that were out at the time.”
