Zack Tabudlo, on April 25, released the music video for his hit ballad “Iyong Iyo” which features some clips from the Thai romantic series “Let’s Fight Ghosts” starring Saint Suppapong Udomkaewkanjana and Orn Patchanan Jiajirachote.
Written by Tiny Corpuz, “Iyong Iyo” sees Zack putting it all on the line and giving everything—literal possession. “Kahit pa ba sa kabilang buhay, ‘di maglalaho,” he croons in the glimmering chorus, showcasing his lyrical penchant for themes like romance and longing. Gentle harmonies and mellow instrumentation make you feel like you’re floating, and allow Zack to flex the upper register of his vocal range, his high notes triumphant and sincere.
“I was really in touch with making the album art of the song as well, having a Halloween-like ghost costume in it which shows a person under a white cloth with holes in it, but has this heart glowing from his chest,” says Zack. “He wants to be like the ghost to really feel the same connection, with his heart glowing, symbolizing how much love he feels for the ghost.”
According to Zack, the song was inspired by the original Thai song for the “Let’s Fight Ghost” series.
The acclaimed singer-songwriter and producer shares, “I wanted to take it to a different world with different styles and vibe compared to the original. It has a very slow blues-pop feel to it production wise. I wanted to go for something mellow having the foundation from the original one but has a “slow dance” feel to it instead of going full ballad.”
