STARSTRUCK 7 WINNER Kim de Leon feels so blessed as GMA-7 is giving him projects nonstop right after he won. 

He was quickly cast as a regular in “All Out Sundays” where he gets to sing, dance and act in their comedy skits. 

Then he was cast in “Pepito Manaloto, Ang Bagong Kuwento” and “My Fantastic Pag-ibig”. 

He was given a bigger role in the Bong Revilla action-fantasy series, “Agimat ng Agila” and when that ended, he is now seen regularly on primetime in the Gabbi Garcia-Khalil Ramos drama series, “Love You Stranger”. 

And now, GMA Playlist has given him his first single, the catchy song “Safe with Me”. 

Composed by Natasha Correos, the song is about loving someone without any reservations.  

It’s about being patient and always giving reassurance to the one you love. A reminder that someone is willing to stay and be part of your healing process until you’re ready to open your heart once again. 

Kim admits he can relate well with the song. 

“Ako as an overthinker, gusto kong pinapakinggan yung song kasi nakakapagpakalma siya sa akin whenever I worry about something. Nakaka-relate ako kasi kailangan ko rin nang may magsasabi na 'you’re safe with me and don’t worry.'”

Meanwhile, he shared that he’s open to collaborating with other Kapuso singers. 

“Lagi kong naiisip for collab si Kuya Garrett Bolden kasi sobrang magkaiba kami ng genre at style. 

"Since naka-close ko na rin siya at palagi kaming magkasama sa dressing room ng ‘All-Out Sundays’, pag nagkakantahan kami doon, sobrang nagagalingan ako sa kanya at saka sobrang bait niya. 

"Napag-usapan na namin yun na open siya sa mga collab, sa mga ginagawa niyang song,” said Kim.

When asked abouta his next plans, Kim replies: “Another single. Well sana, since we’ve been working with another song.” 

Right now he’s mostly excited with his first single and he’s hoping that Kapuso listeners will truly appreciate the song.

Kim’s “Safe With Me” was also chosen to be one of the official soundtracks of GMA Public Affairs' mystery-romance series' Love You Stranger,' where he plays Diego. 

Tune in to “Safe With Me” beginning July 8 on digital streaming platforms worldwide.
