Featuring Filipino rapper Sean Patrick Ramos, 17, who is professionally known as Shanti Dope, the newest single of Disney teen star Sabrina Carpenter, 19, titled “Almost Love” is now available in all digital and streaming providers. The song is exclusively distributed in the Philippines by MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) through Hollywood Records.
Fans of Carpenter and Dope can download “Almost Love” either on Spotify or on iTunes. A unique collaboration, it is the first single off the American singer-songwriter’s highly anticipated third studio album titled “Singular,” which is coming later this year.
Carpenter co-wrote “Almost Love” with Mikkel Eriksen, Nate Campany and Steph Jones. Dope composed the rap verses in a truly Filipino style, providing a fresh take on the single, which was produced by Stargate.
“It’s falling for someone and knowing that you’re inches away from love. It either has a happy ending, or no ending at all,” Sabrina told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “It was very easy to write because in these young years of our lives they always say you lose people along the way, sometimes for no reason other than they were meant to teach you a lesson, and some of those are definitely almost lovers.”
Before “Almost Love,” Carpenter released a successful collaboration song titled “Alien” featuring Jonas Blue. The former is also behind the international chart-topping singles “Why” and “Thumbs.”
To promote “Almost Love,” Carpenter is set to take the spotlight for a series of tours in the Philippines titled “Sabrina Carpenter: Live and Acoustic!,” which is presented by MCA Music and Megaworld Lifestyle Malls. She will perform at the Uptown Bonifacio Mall on August 24, 2018 at 7:00 p.m., at the Eastwood Mall Open Park on August 25, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. and at the Venice Grand Canal on August 26, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.
