Jeremiah Tiangco, the Grand Champion of “The Clash Season 2,” has released his sophomore single under GMA Music titled “Sa Tuwing Umuulan.” The melancholic pop ballad debuted on iTunes Philippines chart at number 13th spot.
During the virtual blog conference for “Tuwing Umuulan,” Jeremiah revealed that he could relate to the song because it reminds him of his dearest lola and an uncle who’ve passed away.
“Hanggang ngayon ‘pag iniisip ko po sila, mayroon talaga mga questions. Bakit nangyayari ‘yun sa buhay ng tao? Bakit kailangan mawala ‘yung taong mahal mo?” he said. “Kumbaga ‘yun ‘yung nagsasabi na ito ‘yung memories namin noong okay pa kami, noong buhay pa siya. Kaya nung ni-record ko po ito, sobrang heartfelt…May time na teary-eyed po talaga ako,” he added.
The song actually talks about a guy feeling melancholic every time the rain would come because it reminds him of his previous lover.
“Ayoko magkaroon ng misconception na ‘pag kinakanta ko itong kantang ito, naalala ko lang [ang] lola ko. Sa kanila ko lang dine-dedicate. ‘Yun lang yung pinaghuhugutan ko. Pero ang story behind this song is behind lovers,” he clarified.
Jeremiah quipped that nothing has changed about him prior to his joining “The Clash” until now that he’s a recording artist and a certified celebrity.
“Who am I right now, I’m still me. Walang nagbago po, ang nagbago lang po siguro ay ‘yung success na binigay sa akin ngayon. And ‘yung mga fans and ‘yung mga people na naka-surround sa akin na mahal ako and nakaka-appreciate po sa akin and nakakatuwa pong tignan na…kasi sobrang grateful ako at nabe-bless po ako sa mga tao na naka-surround sa akin kasi lagi silang nagpapaalala sa akin kung saan man ako ngayon, huwag akong magbago. I mean, ayoko pong buhatin ang sarili kong bangko pero gusto ko po ang magsabi nun ay ‘yung mga taong naka-surround pa rin sa akin. I’m still doing praise and worship sa church po kahit online lang. Siguro ang mga na-improve lang po is siyempre ‘yung skills like producing music, recording music, ‘yun po,” he said.
“Sa Tuwing Umuulan” is now available for streaming on iTunes, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Spotify, and other digital streaming platforms worldwide.
