Vocal trio JBK ended 2015 on a high note and welcomed the new year with a bang as they launched the music video of their newest single Letting You Go.
In just a few days, the hit music video has reaped nearly 600,000 views, 17,000 likes, 7,000 shares and 600 comments. Most reactions heaped praise on JBK for a job well done and for churning out new music that couples can relate to.
The emotional pop song is the band’s latest single from their self-titled album, and is all about breaking up and moving on from a relationship. The song is poised to be one of the biggest OPM hits of 2016.
The music video featured It’s Showtime couple Pastillas Girl Angelica Yap and Richard “Chard” Parojinog, together with the OPM boy band composed of Joshua Bulot, Bryan del Rosario and Kim Lawrenz Ordonio.
“We are overwhelmed by the massive support of our fans. We didn’t expect that people would show such positive response to our newest music video. Thank you very much to all listeners out there,” says a visibly elated Kim.
“We worked hard on this music video to give our fans a New Year treat and I’m happy that they liked it. I also thank Angelica and Chard for supporting our newest album,” says Bryan.
“This is how we wanted to jumpstart 2016. Expect more things from us for the rest of the year,” says an ecstatic Joshua.
The new music video, which was posted last Dec. 29, broke the Internet and received great reviews from fans after garnering 275,000 views on Facebook in just 24 hours.
Some users even remarked that the lyrics reflect reality in today’s relationships.
“Congratulations, JBK! Your music is quite touching and based on real life—maraming makaka-relate,” Facebook user Maria Philomina Lustred posted.
“OMG! It’s so beautiful, I cried!!! Congrats, JBK and, of course, congrats to Richard and Angel. Everything’s beautiful,” Fe Longjas gushed.
The music video, which was shot at Camella Provence in Malolos, Bulacan, was conceptualized by Chris Cahilig and directed by Lemuel Lorca, who is behind the critically acclaimed film, “WaterLemon”. The song was composed by Bryan del Rosario and arranged by Jonathan Ong of Sonic State Studio.
