WATCH: JM de Guzman’s video for ‘Huling Liham’ looks into the act of letting go
The music video for actor-singer JM de Guzman’s new single “Huling Liham” has been released on YouTube last Monday, May 25.
The 5-minute music video featured de Guzman and “Pamilya Ko” co-star Alyssa Muhlach, as seen on the ABS-CBN Star Music YouTube channel.
Sung by de Guzman, “Huling Liham” was composed by musician couple Moira dela Torre and Jason Marvin. The single was produced by Jonathan Manalo.
“Huling Liham”, which translates to “last letter,” tells the story of a man finally letting go of his former lover despite still having strong feelings for her.
As the name suggests, the song is written from the perspective of a person who is, through a letter, coming to grips with the fact that his former lover is now with someone else.
“Hindi kita makakalimutan / Salamat sa ating nakaraan / At kung ako’y iyong matandaan / Maalala mo itong huling liham / Na mahal parin kita / Kaya kakayanin na ika’y Pakawalan,” the song went.
(I will never forget you. Thank you for our past. And if you remember me, remember this last letter, that I still love you, which is why I can let you go.) JB
