"It's about taking your time with love with someone who could really be the one," said Paras, adding that she knew the song was for her the second she heard the melody.

The Starstruck artist said also released an extended play on Spotify, composed of four tracks — Hintay - LoFi; Hintay- Chill Vibe; Hintay - Live; and Hintay M-1.

Paras blushed when asked if she had taken inspiration from her personal life in making the song.

"No naman, but I am reserving myself for someone," she answered.

The singer first broke into the scene in 2018 via the noontime show "Eat Bulaga," particularly its segment, Music Hero: The Vocal Battle. Immediately after, Paras landed a role in the hit musical, Rak of Aegis.

Juggling her passion for singing with acting, Paras also starred in GMA Network's "The Lost Recipe," "Love of My Life," and "My Boy's Lockdown." In the previous year however, she exerted more effort in her singing career.

After her breakthrough in music, the young star now plans to spend more time pursuing acting.

"The singing will always be there kaya gusto ko naman ma-hone ang acting. This time, I want to take on kontrabida roles," said Paras "Palagi na lang ako nasasampal eh," she added.

Paras says she is ready to let go of one between her two crafts — singing and acting — to pursue the other. In this sense, according to the artist, her new single Hintay could also be about her career.
