Yeng Constantino Releases Her Third Album Titled "Lapit"

After her platinum-awarded albums namely, Salamat and Journey, Yeng Constantino is back to delight her fans and listeners once again after a break in the recording scene.

The Grand Star Dreamer of Pinoy Dream Academy Season 1 disclosed that for quite some time, she experienced writer's block�hindering her from composing songs. "Nagka-writer's block ako talaga. Ang tagal rin bago ako naka-recover. Sobrang pressured ako pagkatapos ng mga hit singles ko."

Yeng became apprehensive but she did not let anxiety take over her talent. One person who helped Yeng push through with her third album is Raimund Marasigan, former Eraserheads drummer and now, Sandwich's vocalist. "I was the one who asked Raimund to produce my next album. I am a big fan of his. He taught me how to have fun while still being serious on my career," Yeng enthused. "Natatahimik talaga ako kasi ang gaganda ng mga ideas niya."

Why the album title, Lapit? "Maraming reasons e, ito kasi yung album na feeling ko na sobrang lapit sa akin kasi ako ang gumawa ng mga lyrics [parang "Hawak Kamay" at "Salamat"] kaya very personal sa akin itong album. Tsaka, malapit na malapit sa akin ngayon ang mga fans ko kasi may ginawa akong kanta para sa kanila...yung "Pag Ayaw Mo Na." Malapit din ako ngayon kay Lord kasi may personal na communication ako sa Kanya and malapit ko na din ako sa mga dreams ko, isa-isa na silang natutupad," Yeng explained.

She pointed out that her collaboration with Raymund has the approval and support of Star Records.. "Pinayagan naman ako ng Star Records. I asked my bosses and they allowed me to do this," Yeng shared. "Nakakatuwa nga, e. Ako gumawa ng lyrics nang mga kanta at si Kuya Rayms ang gumawa ng melody. Sobrang saya ko kasi dati-rati, nakikita ko lang siya sa MYX and akala ko dati, hanggang duon na lang yun. Now, si Kuya Rayms pa ang ka-collaborate ko sa album. Salamat salamat din sa Star Records kasi pinayagan nila ako..."

"Lapit" contains 10 tracks including Wag Kang Magtatanong, Jeepney Love Story, Pag Ayaw Mo Na, Siguro, Takas, Maghihintay, Wag Na, Akin Ka Na, and Siguro. With "Lapit" as its carrier single.

Lapit is now available in record bars nationwide under Star Records.
