Today's Filipino Friday post will be a bit different from previous ones. This time, I won't be sharing any photographs from my time in The Philippines, instead I will be telling you about Filipino music. As someone who loves music, I'm always on the look for new songs to listen to.
The past couple of years, I've been slowly starting to practice my Tagalog more by watching Filipino movies, following vloggers and listening to Filipino pop music. It's a bit of a struggle when you don't have anyone to translate things for you, but Carol try to help me out when she can.
The two major type of music that I come across when looking for Filipino music are ballads and lots of covers. Finding uptempo songs within the music industry in The Philippines is a very tricky thing but when I do, I get very excited!
I recently found "Sorry Not Sorry, Goodbye" by Issey. The title caught my attention, I thought it sounded so sassy and I had to listen to it since I was 100% sure this would be an uptempo song. When the intro started, I immediately knew this was a song in my taste! I love the beat in the song, how sassy it is and the mix between Tagalog in the verses and English in the chorus. The music video gives us dance routines at different locations, outfit changes and attitude. I absolutely love this release, the song and video are both great and match well together.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of 5.
Issey is still very young, she seem to be very new to the music industry and the YouTube community but has started to grow a following on her social medias quite fast. If her next release will be something similar to "Sorry Not Sorry, Goodbye" I will looking forward to hearing it and keep an eye out to see what else she has in store!
Did you gave the song a listen? In that case, what do you think of "Sorry Not Sorry, Goodbye"?
