Arra San Agustin, the “New Gem of Drama,” recently dropped her debut single “Hanggang Dito Na Lang” under GMA Playlist.
Composed by Roxanne E. Fabian, “Hanggang Dito Na Lang” is an indie-pop track which talks about one’s journey in dealing with a heartbreak.
During the blogcon for the single, Arra admitted that she can relate to the song because she experienced this deep emotion in real life.
“Nagkaroon ako ng recent breakup pero naayos din naman siya and parang naramdaman ko nung time na ‘yun na wala na ito na ‘yun ayoko na talaga, parang di ko na kayang ituloy, hanggang dito na lang ‘to. So sumakto rin ‘yung song tapos ‘nung naramdaman ko na wala na akong gana, wala na akong motivation, wala na akong inspiration, di ko na siya nakikita sa picture ng future ko at di ko na siya pinapangarap na makasama, dun siguro, hanggang dun na lang ‘yon,” she said.
Arra is thankful to GMA Playlist for making her involved in the process of conceptualizing her first single.
“Kasi ‘yung team po namin sa GMA Playlist, they are very open to suggestions, they are open sa mga insights namin about creating music which is also grateful kami ‘dun kasi siyempre ‘yung creativity ng mga bawat singer napu-push din at saka at saka siyempre bilang kami rin ‘yung kakanta, at least meron kaming involvement ‘dun sa ginagawa naming music. So thank you GMA Playlist for that so I guess, ‘yun po, ‘yung pag-come up ng genre, ‘yung pag-come up ng ideal song, nandun po kami lahat,” she shared.
“Hanggang Dito Na Lang” debuted at no. 2 spot on iTunes Philippines chart during its release last July 29. The track is now available for download and streaming in various digital music platforms worldwide.
