It must be hard wishing your significant other to succeed on her solo endeavor, but also wanting to have her back in your arms.
Musician TJ Monterde confessed that’s kind of how he’s feeling right now while his girlfriend KZ Tandingan is fighting for the top spot on the international singing competition “Singer 2018” in China.
TJ admitted that he’s having a bit of a hard time being temporarily separated from his lady love at the MYX Music Awards 2018 nominees announcement press conference today, February 28.
"Wala, LDR (long distance relationship). Mahirap,” said the Male Artist of The Year contender.
But being the creative that he is, TJ also revealed his plan on writing KZ a song inspired by their current situation. "Actually nagsusulat nga ako ng gano'n. Pero buti na lang 'yung China same lang ng time zone so pwede pang mag-usap."
Right now, he’s channeling all this energy and emotion towards the improvement of his music and the new sound he’s been aiming for.
"Nage-explore ako ng bagong sound kasi with the music you never stop learning tuluy-tuloy lang. Sana makuha ko 'yung gusto kong bagong tunog,” said TJ.
They became a couple when TJ asked KZ to officially be his girlfriend during a trip to Korea in January 2015.
