Manila Killa – ALL 2 U
“ALL 2 U” is the final single off Manila Killa’s upcoming EP and it may be his best. Sara Skinner provides the vocals on this phenomenal track.
“This is a big step in my journey as an artist because this is the last song i’ll be releasing that is part of a bigger project coming out next month. On top of that, I’ll be going on my first headlining tour, where I’ll be showcasing a lot of the music I’ve been working on for the past year. Thank you all for the support you’ve been showing me – me and my team really appreciate it and we hope to see you at a show soon!!” – Manila Killa
