“Whenever I write songs, there’s always an inspiration,” Ilacad said, noting how browsing the internet for various poems to read helped her craft the lyrics for a new song.
Estrada added that they took music theory lessons through online resources to help him create melodies for Ilacad’s lyrics.
The couple gave viewers a sample, as Ilacad penned new lyrics for a song about an unexpected fan.
Estrada tried a few chords on his guitar until they settled on the right melody for the verse. At the end of the video, Ilacad sang a short song while KD played instrumental music.
“The internet plays an important role in our songwriting process,” Ilacad said of awarding his subscription to Sky Cable.
The love team endorsement “KDLEX FOR SKYFIBER” previously took the No. 1 spot in Philippine trends and No. 19 globally.
“We were so happy to see how much the KDLex family loved our picture and together. Their unwavering support never fails to surprise us every time,” Ilacad said.
