Given their successful careers in the show business industry, it is undeniable that James Reid and Nadine Lustre have definitely earned their place in the music scene as well.
MNLtoday.ph interviewed Reid and Lustre during the press conference of MTV Music Evolution 2016.
How would you compare Nadine Lustre now, who has reached the peak of her career, to the Nadine Lustre as a member of Pop Girls way back in 2009?
Nadine: “Pop girls was like a stepping stone for me as I was still starting at that time. From all the outfits – so colorful. The songs and the dance steps are really cutesy. I guess I’ve matured – I take music more seriously now.”
What do you think is your asset as artists to become one of the most sought-after love teams in the Philippines?
James: “As a musical artist, the fact that we can also dance – it helps a lot because it gives you much more energy on stage. Other than that, a lot of this has to do with our followers in the Philippines. Our fans are amazing, and we have the best fans in the world.”
