Singer and actress Alexa Ilacad will be taking her fans on a journey of heartbreak with her new pop ballad single, “Paano,” out on Spotify, Apple Music, and all digital streaming platforms.
For people familiar with Alexa’s music, her catchy pop tunes and high pitch vocals are some of her trademarks when it comes to her songs. She proves not only to be a versatile actress, but also a talented singer who can give life to every song she performs, especially the ones she wrote herself.
“Paano,” released on Jan. 21, was written by Alexa in one sitting during a rainy car ride. Just like the downpour outside, Alexa poured out all her feelings and the questions running through her head after getting blindsided by the person she trusted the most.
“Where did it all go wrong? Was any of it real? What did I do wrong?” These are just some of the questions Alexa asks herself but never got any answers to.
“I wrote ‘Paano’ because I had no other way and place to channel my emotions. I kept it with me for so long until I was ready to share my pain.” said Alexa.
It was then she reached out to her best friend and vocalist of Gracenote, Eunice Jorge, to help her turn this pain into the beautiful song that it is today.
Although “Paano” is a pop song, its lyrics and vocals express nothing but hurt and sadness – a pain that Alexa demands you to feel with her. Who could have ever hurt her this much? We may never know. One thing is for sure, not even Alexa Ilacad is exempted from heartbreak.
