McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson are conquering an uncharted territory for them as a love team: recording a song together!
The pair, more popularly known as McLisse, had a listening session earlier today, June 1, for their debut single "If We Fall In Love," produced by Rox Santos under Star Music.
The sweet ballad is their rendition of the Yeng Constantino and RJ Jimenez original hit.
"We decided na 'If We Fall In Love' kasi alam naman natin na sobrang kilig love team sila, tapos 'yung journey nila talagang inaabangan every now and then," said Rox. "Bakit hindi tayo mag-come-up ng song na sobrang kikiligin 'yung mga fans tapos talagang magre-reflect ng totoong nangyayari sa kanila?"
Elisse recalled joking about having an album with McCoy back in their days inside the "Pinoy Big Brother" house during its "Lucky Season 7" edition. And now, they have a single - and possibly an album too, soon!
She also agreed with Rox's observation on the song being a fitting "soundtrack" to her "love story" with McCoy.
"Nung nakita ko po 'yung lyrics, sabi ko bagay - parang ang hirap sabihin na bagay (giggles) - pero 'yung na-feel ko po parang sakto sa'min," Elisse said.
Hashtags member McCoy feels it's a "coincidence" that their song is "If We Fall In Love."
"May tanong pa rin sa mga nangyayari sa amin. Kumbaga, hindi pa namin alam kung anong meron din kaya sakto rin 'yung kanta," he said.
They picked their favorite lines off the song, and for McCoy, it's "Anywhere with you would be a better place," because, "Makasama mo lang siya, masaya ka na."
Elisse, meanwhile, likes: "You don't have to search no more / 'Cause I am someone who will love you for sure."
"If We Fall In Love" will officially be available digitally tomorrow, June 2!
