Pinay recording artist Jocelyn Enriquez, who created a huge splash in the US in the ‘90s with the hits “Do You Miss Me,” is back on the scene.
She had just released “To Love Again,” a catchy dance track that celebrates love. To further delight her supporters, the music video of the song will air on Myx on Sept. 20.
Released by Audioneer and distributed by Warner Music Philippines, “To Love Again” is an original composition of Jocelyn herself with Matthew Macasadia and Michelle Van Sickle; and was arranged and produced by Elvin Reyes. The video was directed by Blue Gemini.
What makes this song different from her previous outputs is it’s strong Christian undertone. It communicates hope which reflects her newfound faith with husband of 20 years, Pastor Alain Macasadia.
Born in San Francisco, California, Jocelyn is widely regarded as music pioneer, becoming the first Filipino-American artist to find success in the US mainstream industry. Emerging from the Freestyle movement of the time, she was the first artist to sign with Classified Records and was quickly deemed by some as “Queen of Freestyle”.
Her biggest break came with the release of her debut album titled, “Lovely,” featuring dance hits “I’ve Been Thinking About You” and “Make It Last Forever.”
The hit “Do You Miss Me?” was released as part of her eponymous album in 1996. It peaked at #17 on Rhythmic Top 40, #14 on Top 40 Mainstream Chart, #8 on Hot Dance Singles Sales chart, and #49 on Billboard’s Hot 100, among many others.
The album also contains the anthemic love ballad “Even If” that created a major cult following in the Philippines as well as the ballad “Kailanman” – a special track that was recorded and popularized in the Philippines as a way to honor and celebrate her Filipino heritage.
She further catapulted into international mainstream popularity with her collaboration with Ultra Naté and Amber in the remake of the Gordon Lightfoot classic “If You Could Read My Mind,” which is the official theme song of the historical drama “Studio 54” in 1998 starring Mike Myers, Neve Campbell, Salma Hayek, and Ryan Phillippe.
Her other hits are “How Could I Not Love You” and “A Little Bit of Ecstasy.”
Jocelyn was in the Philippines recently as special guest to serve and help lead worship at the Calvary Chapel Bible College Founders’ Day Conference in Dumaguete City.
