Foster among top stars to write for Siti Nurhaliza
PETALING JAYA: Award-winning record producer and composer David Foster and other big names are among those being lured to be part of the song-writing team behind Datuk Siti Nurhaliza’s English album.
Other names on the list for Siti’s second English effort are The Smeezingtons, the song-writing and production group comprising singer Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine.
The album could even feature collaborative efforts between Siti and Grammy award-winning Mars and Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias.
“If everything falls into place, I hope to release my second album sometime early next year,” said Siti, 33, after making a guest appearance on Suria FM’s morning radio show Ceria Pagi Di Suria on Thursday.
Siti was inspired to release her second album after receiving positive feedback for her debut English album, Remember You, released last September by What’s Up Entertainment.
Over 40,000 copies have been sold, with 30,000 downloads so far.
At the station, Siti presented a mock cheque for RM9,700 to Penang-based radio listener Hasmah Yusof, 34, who had won the snowball cash prize for the station’s song-guessing contest Itu Aje.
The station, owned by Star Publications (M) Bhd, is having its nationwide Suria Wheels Ceria Tour to promote its new look.
Today, the tour stops over in Bentong, Pahang (1.50pm) and Kuala Lumpur (5.50pm).
