Could this be a Careless Music cover-up?
The recent hot topic, Liza Soberano, has been the talk of the town, but it seems like a rumored couple might have just stolen the spotlight from her. And get this, they’re both under the Careless Music label, namely James Reid and Issa Pressman.
While there’s been no official confirmation yet, the two have been seen together in recent posts on their respective Instagram accounts. And with the timing of their soft launch, it’s hard not to speculate that they intentionally stole the spotlight from Liza.
