In addition to their leaping success, the five-piece P-Pop group BGYO voices the official soundtrack of Darna: The TV Series.
Last Saturday, ABS-CBN Star Music released the official audio and lyric video for “Patuloy Lang Ang Lipad” on YouTube. Performed by BGYO, it will be the theme song for Darna: The TV Series premiering, at last, this August 15.
Earlier in July, the reveal came that the quintet will participate in the biggest project of ABS-CBN. Their fans (ACEs) even joined the celebration by trending the hashtag #BGYOxDARNAOST on social media.
Moreover, the members shared their reactions to the opportunity in an announcement video. Gelo excitingly said,
“Syempre masaya kami kasi sikat na sikat talaga ang Darna sa Pilipinas. Kahit ‘yung mga hindi kapamilya, sinusubaybayan nila ‘yung ganoong klaseng series. And ngayon, bago na ‘yung gaganap and sobrang saya kasi tayo ‘yung kakanta nun.”
Meanwhile, everything is like a dream come true for Akira.
“Sobrang ano po, unrealistic. Kasi parang pinapanood lang namin siya dati, hinahangaan lang namin si Darna dati tapos ngayon, naging part kami. Kami ‘yung kakanta talaga ng official soundtrack. Super happy and very unrealistic talaga.”
BGYO gives Darna 2022 a modern tune
Dubbed a pop culture symbol, Darna is the Philippines’ most iconic superheroine. It is adapted from a comic by Mars Ravelo, portrayed multiple whiles in both movies and on television.
In 2005, actress Angel Locsin took on the role which will be her embodiment over time. In her version, Regine Velasquez sang its remarkable OST titled “Di Na Mag-iisa.” Many are reminded of GMA’s prime through this composition.
Years later, Marian Rivera flew as the new Darna in 2009. Here, Kamikazee’s “Narda” achieved local popularity among the viewers. Now, the track has become a classic karaoke piece.
BGYO’s Patuloy Lang Ang Lipad will surely be emblematic like the ones it succeeded.
