GNN Pop, a subsidiary of the Manila-based events, PR, and multimedia outfit GNN Entertainment Productions, has recently announced its debut offering for 2023.
For its inaugural edition, the pop-focused entity takes concert-goers on a nostalgia trip with the return of Filipino R&B royalty, Kyla and Jay R to the big stage.
GNN Events Director Marie Lara Pauline Bobier reveals that the concert aims to celebrate Kyla and Jay R’s versatility and chemistry as musicians and performers. “The setlist will be a collaboration between the core production team and the two R&B royalty, putting a premium on songs that defined their iconic status, while also challenging them creatively to the best of their abilities. This is a very important project for us, GNN, as this is our first pop concert. We promise that Back in Timewill be an unforgettable reunion for all of us.”
Made possible by two of the most iconic voices in OPM, Back In Time: Kyla and Jay R The Reunion Concert will take place on September 2, 2023 (Saturday) at the New Frontier Theatre in Cubao, Quezon City.
The highly anticipated show aims to bring Y2K vibes back to life with soulful collaborations, captivating numbers, and show-stopping vocal performances. It also marks the tandem’s 20th year of creative partnership, which spawned numerous sold-out concerts, top endorsement deals, and chart-topping hits such as “Let The Love Begin,” “Undeniable, “Say That You Love Me,” and “Back In Time.”
During the intimate press conference held at the Empty Stomach and Lounge Bar in Taguig City on July 5, 2023, Kyla expressed her excitement about working with Jay R again for this special project.
“Jay R has always been one of my favorite collaborators,” shares the Hanggang Ngayon hitmaker. “We’ve done concerts together in the past, but I’m most excited about this one because there’s so much growth and maturity in terms of our musicality. This show will surely give us an opportunity to reflect on where we’re at in our respective careers and personal lives, while allowing us to be more involved in terms of song selection and artistic direction . I can’t wait to hit the studios and rehearse real soon.”
Back In Time: Kyla and Jay R The Reunion Concert is also co-presented by Cornerstone Entertainment, one of the leading multimedia entertainment agencies in the Philippines.
