WATCH: Ben&Ben calls for internet safety with new song ‘Mag-Ingat’
Ben&Ben has warned fans to be wary of scams and fake accounts online with the new song “Mag-Ingat,” which was released in partnership with Google.
The nine-piece folk pop band dropped the official music video for “Mag-Ingat” on its YouTube channel today, Feb. 8. The song talks about verifying the information that one sees online to avoid being fooled.
“We wrote this song in partnership with Google to advocate for internet safety,” the band stated.
The lyrics to “Mag-Ingat” were written by Ben&Ben’s lead vocalists Miguel Benjamin Guico and Paolo Benjamin Guico.
“Sa dinami-rami ng manloloko / Kailangan kong / Mag-ingat sa pangaabuso / Mag-ingat sa pangaapi. Ingat ka sa nagkatagong / may balak na marumi,” the band sang.
(When some people have ill intentions / I need to/ Be safe from abuse / Be safe from harm / Be safe from those who have / hidden ill intentions.)
Before releasing “Mag-Ingat,” Ben&Ben gave a glimpse of how the song was composed on its Twitter page yesterday, Feb. 7.
“This could be your ringtone! We’re coming out with a song for Google! Be ready for bulaga (surprise), liwanag,” it teased fans.
