Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray’s single “We’re in this together” has reached one million views within 48 hours since its release on YouTube last Saturday, July 18.
The Berklee College of Music (Boston) alumna has relaunched the latest version of the song, which first came out in 2018. She was joined by her recently-confirmed boyfriend, Filipino actor Sam Milby.
Proceeds from all streams and digital downloads will benefit the Young Focus Philippines’ “Quality Education for All” campaign. The non-profit organization supported by Catriona even before winning Miss Universe aims to kickstart an online education program for its students.
As her music met with success overnight, Catriona has kept mum over the controversy surrounding her ex-boyfriend Clint Bondad’s cryptic Instagram stories. Her current beau has however broken his silence and took to social media saying “I cannot simply stand by and allow other people to take control of a narrative that is not theirs to tell.”
The former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate has expressed his support for Catriona over “false stories and fake news that people are creating to fill in the blanks.”
“I will always be here for her and will do everything in my power to protect her,” Sam said at the end of his lengthy post.
Catriona has also cleared that her alleged topless photo is “fake and digitally altered” in an official statement released by her lawyer. Her legal counsel confirmed they will take legal action against those involved.
