Miranda and Ben&Ben also discussed their upcoming collaboration through a video on the band’s Facebook page on the same day.
“Honestly, I never get intimidated pero dito [sa collaboration], na-intimidate talaga ako,” the singer admitted. “I was hoping for a type of song na ganito pero when you gave me the song, sabi ko, ‘Ibang klase talaga.'”
(Honestly, I never get intimidated but in this collaboration, I really got intimidated. I was hoping for a type of song like this but when you gave it to me, I thought, “This is amazing.”)
While not giving further details about the track, Miranda said there were “high parts” of the song that leaned towards the punk rock genre.
“For the fans of Ben&Ben, [this song is a] totally different flavor, so I’m really excited. Gusto kong pasabugin ‘yung mga puso [ng fans]. It’s a fun collaboration,” he added.
