Truth be told; Elmo Magalona is your new favorite pop OPM singer!

Gelo de Vera
Elmo Magalona launched his debut pop album under Universal Records on September 30th titled "ELMO" and features 6 original songs plus 4 bonus tracks!

The actor/singer, after 5 years, decided that this is the right time to release music. Elmo Magalona wants to be identified as a pop singer for his self titled album that "revolves around the recurring theme of the many emotions that go along with the roller coaster ride known as love," the said record topped the iTunes chart hours after its release!
Some of Elmo Magalona's favorite songs off the record are "Huwag Kang Matakot" which is a motivational song about taking risks, a line from the song goes "'di ka mananalo kung 'di ka susugal"; "Alam Mo Ba" with ElNella's other half Janella Salvador; and "Kay Dali", a groovy song that served as the album's lead single, the music video went straight to the top spot on the number one music channel in the Philippines MYX!

Since his album went #1 on iTunes, Elmo was asked about piracy and he said he wants people to start buying physical CDs again, he believes that "piracy is something we can control".
He spends time enjoying the music of Zayn, Drake, The Strokes, Passion Pit, The Beatles and of course, his legendary dad.
When asked about his father, the rising pop singer said his dad, Mr. Francis Magalona, would like what he's doing — which is not being enclosed in a box in terms of craft. He is taking the path he chose himself, just like what Francis M. did in his days. He would like to cover the songs "Cold Summer Nights", "Three Stars and A Sun" and "Mga Kababayan Ko" by his father. Elmo also revealed that his dad has unreleased materials he wants to cover and that Mr. Francis M. has recorded about 15 unreleased songs.
