James Reid’s much-awaited single under his “Palm Dreams” album is set to be released tomorrow, June 16.
JaDine and Pinoy music-lovers are in for a treat as James’ first single; titled “Cool Down,” premieres its music video on MYX tomorrow at 6:00PM. This will come along with its digital release on all major music portals, also on June 16.
Last night, he shared a sneak peek on his Instagram account. Here are some of the scenes you should watch out:
On his recent interview with Philippine Star, James shared that he wrote the lyrics for the songs and did the vocals in his forthcoming album.
Palm Dreams is an album about getting away from it all. “I’ve decided to call [the album] Palm Dreams. It’s about really escaping the city life and getting away from problems, getting away from stress and just being my paradise. And also trying to get out of something that’s so controlled. Something that’s more liberating, I guess. And that’s the whole idea with the album. I wanted to make something that’s different from my last album. Something that Filipinos can be proud of. And I want to bring it to the international level—the sounds, the image, the style, and the fashion (everything I’m wearing). You know, bring it to the next level. Because people deserve it.”
When asked of his expectations on how JaDine fans would react he said, “I like acting, I do. A lot of it I do for the Jadine fans because they’ve done so much for me. Everything that I do is all for them. Even this music. I know they’re gonna love the music as well. I want to be true to my self. Especially with the songs and the music videos, it’s my story. With the videos, I expect people to have positive and negative feedback. But I’m really telling the story of my life that happened in the last two, three years. The start of my year, to when I got in the love team, to when me and Nadine got together.”
His reel to real girlfriend, Nadine Lustre, is one of the inspirations to some of its songs.
“She loves it. It’s called I Love to Love You. A lot of the songs are actually directed at Nadine, but a lot of them were also written before then,” he revealed.
