Ilonggo Pop ushers sophomore album with “Padayon Lang”
Ilonggo Pop successfully launched last year with its debut single “Hinambalan” released in October 2019. The first album amassed more than 320K streams on Spotify and charted at #43 on Deezer’s Top 300 All Genres Releases Philippines. Last February 10, Don Flores’ “Amo Gid Na Ya” debuted at #22 on Spotify’s Top Viral 50 All Genres and had stayed in the said charts for two weeks.
Now, after a year, the second chapter of Ilonggo Pop will be heralded by Don Flores’ new single “Padayon Lang”.
“Padayon Lang” means “Keep going”, suggesting that whatever struggle one is experiencing, one must continually push on because the time for success will soon come.
“Padayon Lang” is a semi-finalist of the PhilPop 2020 Songwriting contest under Mindanao Cluster, together with “Kasadya”, which made it to the finals, and 9 other songs from the same cluster.
This song gives a hopeful vibe combining ethnic sounding elements with upbeat country sound.
Ilonggo Pop Dos will be released on October 16, 2020 and will be ushered by a launching party on Oct 15, 11 PM. The Ilonggo Pop Dos artists will also have their radio guesting on Radyo Milenyo on Oct 16, 9 AM, and on Happy FM at 3 PM. The group will have an intimate launch at Organikian on Oct 17, from 6 to 10 PM.
