Eight years after the release of her last album “To Manila,” Geneva Cruz is back to the musical grind with the release of her latest single “Sinungaling,” penned by Junji Arias.
“I called Junji right away upon arriving from the US and asked him for a song,” Geneva shares. And two hours later, she received a video of Junji on the piano, singing “Sinungaling.”
The song, the singer-actress recalls, was still raw at the time, but was already relatable and catchy. “So I asked my good friend Tox to arrange it,” she adds. “He thought the song was beautiful, as well. After the meeting, I signed up with Curve Entertainment—and the rest is history.”
Geneva is best remembered for the Smokey Mountain hits like “Kailan” and “Better World.” As a solo act later, she released the smash hit, “Anak ng Pasig,” from her solo debut album, “I Like You.”
“Just one song, for now,” she says. “I’m still testing the waters to see if people will be able to relate to it. I want a sound to genuinely represent who I am in my life right now.”
Geneva also inked a contract with GMA Network to do a teleserye set for release in January 2022.
