You can’t help but ask why the one you love the most left you out of the blue in spite of giving your all to save your relationship. Today, up-and-coming singer-songwriter Gio Marlo unveils his brand new single “Bakit Ba”, depicting the feeling of despair and heartache after the girl of his dreams already found somebody else.
“Bakit Ba” opens with a sad remark, “Ako ngayo’y nag-iisa / ni walang makasama / nalulungkot sa bawat saglit na wala ka na,” painting a narrative that he’s all alone now and confused why that special person left. He’s got the knack of bringing emotional expressions to life in simple yet vivid detail with his lyrics, evident in “Bakit ba kasi lumisan / Naglaho nang ganun na lang / Na para bang walang nangyari” at the song’s chorus.
Speaking of its sonic direction, the song is reminiscent of classic and radio-friendly mellow OPM love songs that we grew up listening to over the years. This song follows Gio Marlo’s 2021 single “Akala” and he’s so excited for everyone to hear this gorgeously produced ballad.
