The opening track and 1:43's latest hit single, "PiNK"(Pag-ibig Na Kaya?) is a collaboration track with Myrus penned by Eric Cabahug, the song expresses falling in love. Top music blogger www.justinbreathes.com describes the song as "an example of how good Filipino pop can be".
"Para Kang", a song composed by multi-awarded composer Jojo Panaligan, is a witty, metaphorical expression of the miracle that is love. Fun, playful and lively, the lyrics and melody are reminiscent of the sound of 90s pop rock.
