13 Dec – Renowned Indonesian musician Melly Goeslaw, responsible for title tracks for movies like "Ada Apa Dengan Cinta", "Bukan Bintang Biasa" and "Ayat-ayat Cinta", was in town to promote her latest duet single 'Dibius Cinta' off the "Cicak-Man 2: Planet Hitam" soundtrack.
Describing the collaboration in an interview at Equatorial Hotel KL, 34-year-old singer-songwriter Melly said that the big boss of KRU Studios went all the way to Jakarta requesting her to write a love theme for the sequel.
Since "Cicak-man" is already a phenomenon in both Malaysia and Indonesia, it sparked an interest for the mother of two sons to accept the offer. She said: "Before I began writing the melody, I read through the film's synopsis and watched the prequel with my sons. They loved it so much because we don't get any local superheroes in Indonesia. Plus, it's a suitable film for the whole family. I started writing the song as requested by Norman and sent it back to them for feedback. They loved it and Yusry flew to Jakarta to record the song with me."
Delighted with the outcome, Melly added that the recording process didn't take much time to complete, as both sides understood the song's arrangement very well.
The love duet can be heard in a scene when the shopping carts of both Hairi (Saiful Apek) and Tania (Fasha Sandha) bump into each other while shopping.
In other news, the wife of composer Anto Hoed is set to roar her nation with the upcoming project for the theme song of "Ketika Cinta Bertasbih", due to begin January next year. Indonesia's top diva Krisdayanti is also said to be lending her voice for the tune.
"Cicak-man 2: Planet Hitam" is playing in cinemas now.
