Aside from discovering James Reid as a competent actor, fans also rediscovered him as a singer
The title of James Reid’s debut album produced by Viva Records aptly describes his present (hot) status: Reid Alert.
It carries six songs: Huwag Ka Nang Humirit, Hanap-Hanap (featuring Nadine Lustre), Randomantic, Bonfire Love Song and Babalik, all by Thyro Alfaro and Yumi Lacsamana; and 10 (featuring Elise Estrada) by Adam Hurstfield, Elisa Estrada, Jerry Wong, Vic Levok and Marten Tromm.
“I chose the songs,” said James. “Boss Vic (del Rosario Jr.) wanted a pop album so Thyro and Yumi made demos and I chose from them.”
When asked which of the songs he would sing to serenade a girl with, James chose Randomantic.
“Because it’s a sweet song and it can win any girl’s heart.”
It was during his stint in PBB (Pinoy Big Brother) that James realized he could sing.
