1. KathNiel

There’s no better song to describe Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s love team for Maris than Rico Blanco’s “Your Universe.”

Sobrang bagay kasi sobrang in love nila ngayon. And looking at them, parang ‘yun ‘yung ideal na love despite ang daming problems na kailangang i-face,” Maris said.

Well, with a love that’s already more than five years strong, aren’t they just ideal? <3

2. LizQuen

The sweet yet low-key love team of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil made Maris think of Daniel Caesar’s “Best Part” as the most fitting song for them. Why not? The rhythm and lyrics of the song can easily pass as something that Quen would sing for Liza!

I just wanna see, I just wanna see how beautiful you are. You know that I see it, I know you're a star” <3

3. JaDine

Being the #travelgoals that they are, James Reid and Nadine Lustre’s adventurous tandem makes John Mayer’s “Love on the Weekend” the perfect song for them. Maris could already picture how romantic their road trip will be as the song plays on the background. <3


4. JoshLia

Maris worked with Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto in “Vince and Kath and James” last 2016, and she witnessed how the two are both old souls from classic films. JoshLia then reminds her of the movie “A Lot Like Love,” and immediately chose the song from the movie “Brighter Than Sunshine.”

5. MayWard

Maris instantly uttered “cute!” upon the mention of Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber’s tandem, that’s why she dedicated her very own song “Ikaw Lang Sapat Na” for them.

With the lyrics that goes, “At nung nakilala ayaw na kitang mawala. Oh, alam mo ba gusto kong sabihin na gusto kitang makasama sa habang buhay pero kailangan munang maghinay-hinay,” Hmmm... very applicable nga sa MayWard ha? <3

6. ElNella

Maris kept it short and sweet for Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador’s team-up: "I think they're made for each other." Hence, picking their 2016 teleserye’s theme song “Born For You.” But, really, there seems to be a red string that binds them, ano?

Here’s ElNella’s uber kilig duet of the song!

7. DonKiss

A Maris Racal love team playlist wouldn’t be complete without a song dedication of an Inigo song, and it’s a no-brainer that she picked “Dahil Sa’yo” for Donny Pangilinan and Kisses Delavin’s love team. We could already imagine Donny serenading Kisses with this song! Kilig!

8. MarNigo

MarNigo fans, are you ready?

Maris chose the song “Best Friend” by Rex Orange County where she revealed that her Papapeh Inigo Pascual was the one who introduced her to it. We also listened to it and we think we know why Inigo recommended this to Maris.

I wanna be your favorite boy, I wanna be the one that makes your day. The one you think about as you lie awake.” Subtle hints ba ito, Inigo? 'Yung totoo?! <3

Make sure to watch out for Maris’ “Love is Easy” music video premiere at MYX later at 7 PM! :)
