MANILA, Philippines - Yassi Pressman (photo) is ready for her close-up.

 The lovely and talented Viva Artists Agency young star, who rose to prominence in last year’s blockbuster teen rom-com Diary ng Panget, will be taking on three big projects.

First up is her self-titled debut album, now out on iTunes and Spotify. The six-track record mostly features Yassi in her “Princess of the Dancefloor” mode, a title that was given to her for her dancing skills even before she ventured into recording. Yassi the album proves that she’s just as talented as a singer.

And she doesn’t only sing in the album. In tracks like first single Hush, a duet with Diary co-star Nadine Lustre, the Diary soundtrack hit Di Ko Alam with co-star and love team Andre Paras, and current single Lala, Yassi stakes her claim as pop music’s new rap princess, too. The album boasts of a new duet between Yassi and Andre, adoringly called by fans as Yandre, called Dahil Sa ‘Yo, which has the makings of the Valentine Song of 2016 if it were to be released as a single. 

Yassi’s second big project is her onscreen reunion with Andre. The movie is called Wang Fam and is from blockbuster director Wenn Deramas. The title is short for Aswang family and Yassi stars as the unsuspecting girlfriend of Andre who is a member of the human-friendly and kind-hearted if crazy Wang fam. The movie also stars Pokwang, Andre’s real-life dad Benjie, and child wonder Alonzo Muhlach. It hits screens in November.

Wang Fam will then be followed by Yassi’s launch film as a headlining star. It’s the big-screen adaptation of the rom-com novel Girlfriend For Hire, one of the biggest hit stories on Wattpad with 20 million reads. The movie will once again pair Yassi with Andre and will serve as the tandem’s major launch vehicle. Adapted for the screen by award-winning writer-director Joey Reyes, with Diary ng Panget director Andoy Ranay as creative producer, Girlfriend for Hire is currently in production and slated to hit the big screens in early 2016. 

Yassi is also a VJ on MTV Pinoy, hosting Yandre’s Playlist and the request show MTV Shoutout. She is also busy guesting in different shows, aside from being an endorser of a popular food chain.
