The Sweetheart and The Balladeer are off to a hot 2022 start with an exciting and meaningful collaboration!
That’s right, Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista and Asia’s Limitless Star Julie Anne San Jose continue to expand their repertoire with the release of their brand new collab track, “Everybody Hurts” under Universal Records.
The very special song is a perfectly blended mix of pensive harmonies and cathartic vocals from the two multi-awarded OPM icons. The collab track was immaculately produced by a Swedish production company who also managed to work with acts like BTS, Icono Pop, Red Velvet, The Veronicas, TWICE, and many others.
“Everybody Hurts” features the theme of perseverance and positivity – something that the world needs more than ever right now. The song lays bare the struggles of people who face harsh realities each and every day. While today’s society really needs heroes and some of us are given a great gift of persistence, resilience, and fortitude, we’re not totally invincible. Even the strongest and most capable person gets hurt and needs saving.
The song provides listeners a dose of inspiration and reassurance that everybody may feel hurt and down sometimes, but you’ll surely find better days if you keep your head up high. It’s a great tune to remind you of your worth and when you need to pick yourself up.
This latest release is not the first collaboration from Christian and Julie Anne. Back in 2015, they teamed up for their rendition of “Cruisin”, which got nominated for Favorite Remake at the MYX Music Awards 2016. Likewise, the two worked together in their major concert titled “The Sweetheart and The Balladeer” and headlined an online musical narrative series called “Still” last year.
“Everybody Hurts” is available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify and all digital platforms starting January 21, 2022 under Universal Records.
