We’re Bopping to this New Conyo Song “Bai”
Music ⬝ Real Jhon Castillon
Whether you speak conyo (Davao/Cebuano Tagalog) or not, it still doesn’t change the fact that Paul Ramirez’s debut single is a certified BOP.
Released last July 29, 2020 alongside its aesthetically pleasing, self-produced music video almost reminiscent of K-Pop and IV of Spades music videos, “Bai” calls out on the incessant public scrutiny towards those who speak Davao conyo.
“Bai ka-tired ko gud today,” Paul laments at the beginning of the song. Anyone, especially those who speak the language, would know how familiar and relatable this line sounds. What follows is Paul unapologetically singing and bemoaning the collective sentiments of the Davao conyo speaking community. Though the song’s quite short, it’s enough to get you hooked and yes, addicted.
Hack: It gets so much better when you listen to it a few more times. So don’t be ashamed to click that replay button y’all.
If they’re playing their cards right, this could potentially be a radio hit. It should be a radio hit, suffice to say. The overall production, vocals, and talent are a pure topnotch it’s unbelievable.
Right now, we’re just patiently waiting for his other singles which we think are coming sooner than we think.
“Bai” is written and produced by Paul Ramirez himself together Pao Lofranco, one of the Davaoeño musicians signed under Viva Records.
