Barangay LS 97.1, the flagship FM station of GMA Network, will make you believe that forever exists through its new theme song, "Tayo ay Forever.”
The heartwarming song, performed by two of the Network’s versatile and sought-after Kapuso stars Ken Chan and Rita Daniela, shows how forever can be defined in so many ways.
Ken describes it as ‘catchy’ and ‘relatable.’ He says, “Maganda ‘yung song, talagang feel good lang at very light. It’s about believing in forever. Hindi lang ito forever sa pagitan ng dalawang tao kundi pwede rin between friends, family, and sa lahat ng mga taong nakapaligid sa iyo na dapat i-spread mo sa kanila ang forever.”
Rita reveals that she thought of Ken when she first heard the music, “I have to say ‘yung mga ganitong style, ‘yung mga ganitong genre, ito ‘yung style ni Ken, lalo na 'pag Tagalog.”
Collectively known as RitKen, the two proves to be a dynamic duo as the official release of “Tayo ay Forever” music video on Facebook last July 29 has garnered more than half a million views in less than one week.
Produced by GMA Music, “Tayo ay Forever” is composed by one of Barangay LS 97.1’s very own DJs Papa Obet, and was arranged by Jun Tamayo and produced by Kedy Sanchez.
Papa Obet also shares how he came up with the song that would be relatable to everyone and at the same time be very fitting for Ken and Rita. “I made sure na maging bagay sa RitKen ang dating ng song when it comes to melody at kailangan masasabayan din ng lahat ng tao. Sa lyrics, ang inisip ko ay dapat hindi lang pang romantic yung kanta, dapat pwede rin siya sa ibang bagay at sitwasyon—katulad ng pakikinig sa Barangay LS na hindi pwedeng mawala at lagi nating kasama together hanggang forever.”
“Tayo ay Forever” is now available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, and digital stores worldwide.
