Who would’ve thought?

JK Labajo has confirmed that his hit single “Ere” is about his breakup with ex-girlfriend Maureen Wroblewitz. First reported by ABS-CBN, the singer seemed genuinely surprised that there was any mystery about the inspiration behind the passionate single.

“Kung hindi obvious, ewan ko na lang!” said JK. (If it wasn’t obvious, then I don’t know anymore) “I'm not really hiding anything. It's a super-given thing that the whole thing was for a breakup. ‘Ere' is one of the songs that I made for my relationship that ended, so that’s it.”

The lead single from his album, “Sad Songs and Bullshit Part 1”, “Ere” is JK’s arguably most resonant song to date. It is the first Filipino track to enter the Spotify Global Chart peaking at #58, broke the single-day stream record on Spotify PH with 1.39 million streams, and was covered by Danish pop band Lukas Graham during their visit to Manila

It even transcended its heartbreak theme to appeal to hopeless romantics, who have taken the line “Tatlong bilyon, ikaw nga lang ang aking gusto” (3 billion [people], and you’re the only one I want.”) as a show of affection.

Got something to say?
