There are those days where you wake up and your mind and body aren’t in the mood to get up and go to school, or go to work, those moments where you just can’t take it all in, those moments where you just need some headspace and take a deep breath from it all. Those moments where you just need someone to hold you tight and tuck you in just to feel safe and home.
Darren lures us with his new single entitled, “Sasagipin Kita.” The much-anticipated single draws differently from his previous releases giving so much emotions in this new track.
On it, Darren asks, “Paano ba? Kaya pa ba?,” a question very familiar to everyone feeling troubled. The ballad single hits differently with its melancholic tone and heartfelt lines. It drives off with a piano and builds up with a full-band.
Prior to this release, Darren made an appearance at Tonight with Boy Abunda (TWBA) a Philippine late-night show broadcasted by ABS-CBN where he revealed his most exciting projects. Part of which is his participation in the ASEAN Korean Culture Innovation Summit – Growing with Art theme song together with other ASEAN artists.
The project was hosted by the South Korea Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the growth of cultural relations between ASEAN and the Republic of Korea. The song is entitled, “Side By Side” which is the first of its kind in Asia.
In addition, Darren debuted a sample of “Sasagipin Kita” on TWBA making this guesting trend on twitter at the number one spot that night. This was also the beginning of the countdown towards the release of the new song last November 29.
Upon release, this new single trended on Twitter with the hashtag #DarrenSasagipinKita four hours before the release until the afternoon of November 29. The following day, “Sasagipin Kita” became number one on iTunes Philippine Chart.
