Filipino hip-hop legend Gloc-9 (real name: Aristotle Pollisco) and rock band Mayonnaise decided to collaborate while on lockdown by covering hit Eminem song “Stan.”

Mayonnaise, which constantly uploads song covers on its YouTube channel Mayonnaise PH, noted that it is heartwarming how they can still create music together during these times.

“Alam naman natin na hindi pa sigurado ang lahat. Baka maextend pa talaga ang lockdown hindi lang sa Pilipinas kundi sa buong mundo,” Mayonnaise said of the video uploaded on YouTube yesterday, May 14.

(We all know that nothing is set in stone. This lockdown may still be extended, not only in the Philippines, but in the whole world.)

“Pero ganun pa man, nakakatuwa pa rin na kahit nasa mga bahay lang tayo, posible pa ring makagawa ng musika,” the band added.

(In spite of this, it is still heartwarming that even if we are just in our own homes, it is still possible to create music.)

Mayonnaise frontman Monty Macalino sang the chorus, which was British singer Dido’s part in the original, while Gloc-9 performed Eminem’s verses. They were also joined by Nikko Tirona on drums, according to the band.

Gloc-9 personally picked to cover the song after being asked by Mayonnaise to collaborate, according to the band.

Eminem’s 2000 hit is without doubt one of his most influential songs, which led to the word “Stan” being officially added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary last year.

As a noun, “stan” means “an extremely or excessively enthusiastic and devoted fan,” while as a verb it means “to exhibit fandom to an extreme or excessive degree,” according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

The hit song tells about the story of an overly obsessive fan named Stan, who idolizes Eminem. Gloc-9 also has a similar song titled “Elmer,” which he previously said was

inspired by “Stan.”  /ra
