After being the only Filipino artist chosen to perform at the GMA (Golden Melody Awards) in Taiwan last June 26, 2022, Paolo Sandejas has a new milestone on his music career.
The young Universal Records Philippines singer-songwriter can’t believe his eyes when Kim Tae-hyung aka V of world-renowned South Korean boyband BTS included his song “Sorry” on his DRIVE VLOG playlist, uploaded today (July 09, 2022) just in time for ARMY Day.
The video, which runs for almost one hour, is the first episode of the boyband’s vlog series for their BANGTAN TV YouTube channel. From the looks of it, V really knows the song by heart as he enthusiastically jams to Paolo’s original single while driving his car.
