The Wait is Over: KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde Drop ‘Can’t Wait To Say I Do’ Wedding Track
Oct 16, 2020
With candid professions of love beautifully stitched together with light, easy-listening beats, “Can’t Wait To Say I Do” is the latest collaborative offering of newlywed musicians KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde. This track successfully showcases exactly what we expect from this lovely couple — pure, unbridled, vibrant talent. And of course, genuine, heartfelt affection.
While most wedding productions involve the use of love songs that ebb gently and culminate into lush, grandiose moments, this home-recorded track proves that a chill, lo-fi piece can be absolutely warm and heart-stirring. It offers a fresh prelude to their much-awaited wedding in the time of the coronavirus.
The three-minute bop, off from the couple’s soon-to-be-released EP under Star Music and PolyEast Records, is a union of Tandingan’s soulful, relaxing voice and Monterde’s smooth, tender vocals.
The song brims with words that have been intricately woven with love. The song features the singing-songwriting couple’s candid thoughts and feelings on their big day (KZ’s “Today, I wear my whites/ The kind that’s once a lifetime” and TJ’s “I’m in my suit and tie/ Knees are shaking, love, not gonna lie”). The groom also expressed his anticipation of the moment when his bride finally walks down the aisle (‘Coz walking through that door/ Is the woman I’ve been praying for/ And as I look you in the eye/ Today my best friend is gonna be my wife). And ultimately, the song allows us to witness the couple’s genuine excitement in its core parts — they let us hear and feel how elated they are to be on this once-in-a-lifetime journey together.
Open up the curtains,
‘Coz I’m walking down the aisle
I might be running ‘coz I’m certain,
It’s the beginning
Of the rest of our lives
A fitting follow-up to their four-year-old “Ikaw At Ako Pa Rin” collab, this song, in its lovely and uncomplicated entirety, leaves us mesmerized. With “Can’t Wait To Say I Do,” the lovers take us on a journey that they’ve been enjoying for the past five years — and give us a sneak peek into a lifetime full of love that is ahead for them. If you’re in the market for a song that makes you want to be giddy about love, stream this track and thank us later.
