WATCH: Maris Racal and Rico Blanco writes new song together

OPM is getting the shake-up it's been waiting for.

Rising star Maris Racal and OPM legend Rico Blanco are joining forces to make magic together, and we saw the first leg of their collaboration in an Instagram video courtesy of Maris, shared yesterday, February 11.

In the video, they seem to be writing a new, original song together, with Maris showing off her impressive vocals and Rico on the piano playing quite a melancholic tune. It's OPM at its finest and you best believe we've been watching that video on loop since last night. We can't wait to hear more!

Maris called Rico her "super idol" back in December when they first informally announced their partnership online. In an interview with Darla Sauler a month later, the songstress said this of Rico, "Na-meet ko siya. Pinarinig ko sa kanya 'yung mga songs ko. Then marami pa ako gusto maka-collaborate."

Aside from her musical projects, Maris also has quite the big year ahead in terms of film. She will be part of Mikhail Red's ensemble cast for the upcoming zombie thriller "Block Z."

She previously appeared in the 2016 hit "Vince and Kath and James" and was also part of the 2017 horror-thriller "Bloody Crayons."
