Let’s just do that song already!” Rico shared, “It turns out they had this song na they were working on tapos gusto nila ilagay ko yung inputs ko do‘n para maging totoong collaboration siya. Hindi siya yung parang featuring lang yung isang artist, so talagang nag-jamming kami tapos nilagyan ko rin ng inputs ko, yung kanta na sinulat ni Gab (Gab Chee-kee, guitarist of Parokya).”
