Charice has been invited by Black Eyed Peas singer Apl.de.ap to collaborate on a song he has already started recording.
Apl.de.ap revealed in an interview on Philippine TV on February 27 that he has recorded a song, and would be happy to include his fellow Filipino before finishing it, but did not confirm whether or not he had discussed the idea with Charice.
“I just did a song specifically for the People Power and I wanted to involve her in it. It’s not fully done so I have time to put her on it,” he said. Apl.de.ap was in the Philippines to perform in a free concert to celebrate the anniversary of the country’s 1986 EDSA rising.
It’s not the first time that Apl.de.ap has said he would like to work with the teenage songstress, who has just completed a very successful tour of Japan. However, there has never been confirmation that a collaboration would happen.
So far, Charice’s diary has been full, with two lightening trips to the Philippines fitted in amongst several live performances in Los Angeles, Florida and New York, while also recording tracks for her new album and rehearsing for her Japan tour.
It’s understandable then if time has worked against the chances of any collaboration with the Black Eyed Peas singer taking place, though whether she is available for inclusion on the recording even now is also unknown.
Undoubtedly, she has rested after the exertion of four solo concerts and a performance at the J-WAVE awards over the course of just 5 days. But, the release of her second album is expected later this year, and a confirmed return to “Glee” may mean she is facing some filming obligations back in Los Angeles. So, collaboration with Apl.de.ap might have to wait for some time yet.
