As we can recall that the teen star is on cloud nine feeling when her debut single reach the Youtube milestone of hitting one million views. After that achievement, she was blessed to sign an exclusive recording contract with the music production arm of ABS-CBN, the Star Music. The recently launched album was included in the contract that she signed months ago. The tickets of the event launching were sold out within 30 minutes from the initial release. Prior also to the event the album already reached the platinum record status as it sold over fifteen thousand units.
To the statement of the teen star, Delavin many speculated that the reason of this was that of the deleted clip from the recent Kapamilya Chat session, where there is growing tension between the teen love team. In the short clip, Delavin was asked by her onscreen partner if she was pissed at him. The question caught off guard Delavin, who opened a can of worms about Gallo snubbing her parents. Telling her onscreen partner how important her parents are, she told him "Importante sa akin ang magulang ko (my parents are important to me).
In a separate interview, Marco Gallo was asked about scrapping their love team with Kisses Delavin, he said that he also felt sad that the team up has to end. " Siyempre nakakalungkot po sa nangyari pero nagpapasalamat naman po ako kay Kisses at sa lahat ng fans na sumusuporta sa amin kasi, ang dami ko naming natutunan from her and from the things that happened, (Of course I'm sad about what happened but I'm still thankful to Kisses and to our fans who supported us, I learned a lot from her and from the things that happened). The young actor is still hoping to mend his friendship with kisses. He believes that time will help heal their friendship and that there will come a time which they can talk about what happened between them. He said that they are also normal people that need time to heal. The young actor still considers Kisses as her friend because they spent many memories together. The actor asks KissMarc fans to continue supporting both of them in their chosen career path, that they will also support them in their solo projects in the industry. He also thanks his fans for understanding the situation. He is still open to having a new onscreen partner, he said that he will accept the decision of the management on who are they going to give as her new onscreen partner. He added that he can learn a new lesson from this new love team.
To the fans of the KissMarc love team, it is really an emotional rollercoaster. Let us just respect both decisions, we do not know what comes ahead of the teen star. They are still young and still are both new to the industry. Let us wait and hope for the best to the both of them.
