Even though she has stated the mere comparison thingy, yes, Yeng Constantino has a point that it’s too awkward to compare her to both Kitche Nadal and Barbie Almalbis. However, between the three of them, I’d say that Yeng is so far, for me, the best.
The Dare: Am I alone at this situation?
I think, Yeng Constantino is even more than original and stand-out. I dunno with the hype with Kitchie way back then when she was famous, but I could really say that Yeng is more original, and her songs are very lively.
Pero ‘wag mo lang siyang pasalitain. HAHA.
It’s really hard to compare Kitchie and Yeng because it’s too awkward to do so. However nga lang kasi, Yeng’s facial features are even softer and seemed more approachable.
abs-cbn.com|See? Her features are very soft.
Believe it or not, she’s even prettier in person. I also saw Kitchie in person na rin, yeah she’s also pretty, but I believe Yeng is more standout (Kitchie’s beauty is more like the typical colegiala). Hindi lang talaga siya ganun ka-fashionable. Pero carry naman niya ang pagiging tomboyish, eh, which Charice cannot even pull off.
Granted, some of you think she’s “ugly,” but please, I believe you have a problem when evaluating faces. Kitchie’s facial features are sharp, kaya mukhang intimidating. Also, ‘eto ah, very awkward rin ‘to, but when you insist na Kate Hudson’s prettier than Yeng, I’m sorry but even though Kate has fully-bloomed into a real woman (please do not forget the awfully chinky eyes and flat nose for a non-Eurasian white person, VERY awkward!), sh only looks like a typical white person. Nothing very special.
Also, with regards to talent, Yeng’s songs are very original, and take a look at this MV:
Oh, see!? Me collaboration pa siya with Ramon Bautista, and another thing that I like about her is that, she has a similarity with Taylor Swift: They both composed their songs as minor teens (14 years old), although the latter has songs that have almost the same tune.
First impression ko sa kanya, ordinary-looking lang. However, I was so starstrucked on her beauty way back when I saw her for real at around 2007. Standout talaga ang beauty niya, despite being a “shorty.”
Even without makeup, she’s still cute! Lumalabas ang pagiging “Maja Salvador” niya! Even though I’m not a fan of Maja, they really look like each other. Also, she reminds me of Jessy Mendiola as well.
So, if that’s the case, nagiging PWET na lang si AA! Ansaveh ng big nose niya sa original beauty ni Yeng!? Joke lang!
Her unusual talent: Singing, songwriting, musical genius
One reason why I love Yeng more than Kitchie is because she’s still active, rarely had negative feedback and no matter what happens, even though she didn’t finish school (ewan ko na lang kung balik-aral siya), she still managed to prove her worth the hard way, but in an effortless way. I really do not know why people like Kitchie’s songs, yeah, they’re really meaningful, but the music is actually boring (pop-rock na ‘yan, ah!). Hindi ako music critic, ah. I think Kitchie’s musical style is sort of emo than rock. Pero in Yeng’s case naman kasi, she diversifies. ‘Yan ang raw talent.
I also believe that whatever Yeng pulls off, she really looks great with it. Even the bob cut, the rocker chic, the girly-girly, at least she can pull it off. I cannot imagine Kitchie doing that, actually.
Kaya lang sumikat si Kitchie ng solo because she used to be part of Mojofly, and the fact that na-hype lang siya when the time she became famous (she was Trina Nadal before she became solo). Same with Barbie Almalbis, this time, sa Barbie’s Cradle naman siya sumikat. Eh, si Yeng? Sumali siya sa PDA, and she really proved her worth. Right now, she’s still active in ASAP, and although she’s still underrated, she’s probably one of the people who’ll soon revive OPM music. After all, she does not need to join a band to become famous. Same with Ashley Gosiengfiao (although frankly, she didn’t become famous on her own).
If she could redefine OPM again
Oh yes. If she’s the one who has talent, she should be appreciated rather because of her talent. Most of her songs, most of her tweets and posts are in Filipino. Also, I think that everyone should disregard nonsense rap songs that only talk about drugs, sex and beer! HAHAHA. I think if I were to be asked, she’s one of the few people who never had any issues, or in short: Transparent. She does not need to create issues to become famous. This is one similarity she and Kitchie share.
Comments (hi the-top-tens):
Her songs are really lively and very original… And she’s prettier in person compared on television.

She’s not just a singer but also a composer, she also plays the guitar and most of all she sings very well..
What else can we ask for? She have it all!
Yeng has improved since she won the title as the first ever Grand Star Dreamer on a Philippine franchised Reality-TV Show of Endemol – Pinoy Dream Academy (Star Academy) in 2006. Since then, she has launched 3 chart-topping albums and videos. Her songs has influenced many students amongst the youth and she has continued her legacy of writing songs and over time, has kept her character not only as a singer/songwriter but also as a host and a producer/director. Her voice has evolved since her hit Hawak Kamay in 2006 and is now being compared to the likes of Adele in the international scene. She keeps performing in bars, school events, volunteer works and she has an upcoming concert entitled RAKENROL JAMMING in Aliw Theater this coming Friday, August 5. Be there and watch her electrifying performance!
