Clearly, there is no stopping the multi-hyphenate Solenn Heussaff from being one of the most in-demand celebrities in local showbiz. From commercial endorsements, TV shows, movies, she dabbles again with one of her facets, music, via a new single “Diva” off her upcoming sophomore album “SOS.”

“Diva” features one of the country’s promising hiphop artist Ron Henley, whose YouTube videos like “Biglang Liko” have reached more than 13 million views. The song, composed by Ferdie Marquez and produced by Francis Guevarra, talks about divas who consider themselves more important than others and those who are demanding and fussy. Solenn relates to the song as she had encountered some “divas” especially in showbiz.


The single was recently launched at variety show “Sunday All Stars” where Solenn was surprised by executives of MCA Music- OPM Marketing Manager Mark Bonifacio and Artist & Repertoire Manager Kiko Guevarra, with a Platinum Award for selling more than 15,000 copies (physical and digital combined) for her debut album “Solenn”. Her first album produced the hits “Fire”, “It’s Our First Time” and “Torn”.



Solenn’s sophomore album “SOS” will be available on Smart Music and iTunes on August 26 and on CDs on September 2. Aside from “Diva” the album will include compositions by rock icon Ely Buendia and collaborations with hiphop artist Klumcee, The Morning Episodes and American producers WeRWolvz.
