EXCLUSIVE: Richard Poon's love team playlist

If you think that seeing your favorite Kapamilya love teams on TV is not enough to quench your fangirl hearts, well, today is your day because Star Cinema is here to the rescue!

Before enjoying the weekend with your family and loved ones, allow us first to give you major kilig feels with our newest love team playlist.

Helping us this time is jazz crooner and newest addition to the Star Music family, Richard Poon!

In an exclusive interview last Thursday, April 5, Richard picked out songs that he would like to dedicate to some of our beloved love teams.

Now, take a deep breath because here comes Richard's love team playlist!

1. KathNiel

Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla have been together since forever! And like KathNiel fans out there, Richard only wishes for the couple to "last a lifetime." That is why he picked Jose Mari Chan's song, "A Love to Last a Lifetime." 

Juris also did a version of the song which became the official theme song of one of our new favorite teleseryes, "A Love to Last."

"They've been there for quite some years. They've weathered some storms. May it last. Sana tumagal, 'di ba? 'Yun ang hope ko eh," Richard said.

We 100% agree with you, Richard! 

2. LizQuen

Richard also wishes the same to Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil. "They're enjoying success. Sana tumagal. Minsan sa industriyang 'to may mga realities din na mahirap. Hindi naman laging masaya. So sana mag-endure forever 'yung love nila. That's very important," he said.

He dedicated Martin Rivera and Regine Velasquez's song "Forever" to the love team. In the lyrics, it says, "Forever more we'll stay in love this way. No matter what they say until the end. Now I know we can have it all forever."

Aw! We want to see LizQuen together forever too!

3. MayWard

One reason why people are in love of MayWard is because of their simplicity. Richard Poon is one of those who really noticed.

"Simple lang siya," pertaining to Maymay Entrata.

"Maymay is 'pag nakilala mo siya, simple lang siya. Simpleng-simpleng-simple," he added.

That is why he wanted to dedicate the song "Simple lang" by Ariel Rivera to Maymay's partnership with Edward Barber, wishing that they will continue being the way they are now.

A part of its lyrics says, "Simpleng buhay ay kay ganda, mayroong ngiti, mayroong saya." <3

4. McLisse

It takes time to know someone completely. That is what Richard wants to tell the young love team of McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson.

"Kasi minsan marami pang madi-discover. Kahit na parang love team kayo, marami ka pang madi-discover through the years," he said.

Here is a version of the song "Getting to Know Each Other" by Billy Crawford, with a special participation of his soon-to-be other half Coleen Garcia.

5. ElNella

Christina Aguillera's "I Turn To You" is the song Richard picked out for Janella Salvador and Elmo Magalona.

While both Elmo and Janella are having the time of their lives now, we are sure that if tough times come, they will be turning to each other. <3

6. MarNigo

Richard chose Inigo's mega-hit for his love team with Maris Racal.

Here is the music video of "Dahil Sa'Yo." 

"Gusto ko 'yung lyrics nun. Actually, gustung-gusto ko 'yung first two lines [ng chorus] na, 'Dahil sa'yo ako'y lalaban. Dahil sa'yo, ako'y matapang,'" he said.

While Inigo said before in an interview with Boy Abunda that the song is like a worship song to him, we can't help but imagine that the song is for his MamaMeh, too!

Now, there you go! We hope we've filled your hearts with love. <3
