Callalily collaborates with Yeng Constantino for a Duet version of the band’s hit single “Ex”.

Last 2018, Callalily released their single “Ex”. Written by the band’s drummer, Lem Belaro, it’s the final chapter of his 5 part song series. Which includes their hits “Magbalik”, "Hintay", "Bitter Song" and “Pansamantala.” “Ex” talks about being loved by someone despite all your past faults. The song has been in the Philippines Top 50 for a couple of months and currently, it has more than 21 Million streams on Spotify.

Last July 2018, the music video for “Ex” was released and it instantly became a viral video. The concept was to capture the reaction of 4 ex couples (who haven't seen each other for months/years) as they meet face to face. The message: exes, can still be friends.

The composer always had an idea of creating 2 more versions of the song. One of the versions being a Duet version. They all decided that the best person to collaborate with is the Rock Royalty Princess, Yeng Constantino. With the help of Star Music, the collaboration came to fruition. The song was recorded in The House of Billy Gaga Studios.

Last Tuesday (February 26, 2019), the music video for the song was shot. It will have a narrative that will surely capture the hearts of the viewers. It will revolve around the main message of the song which is forgiveness. Directed by Callalily’s manager and long time friend – Enzo Valdez of Sindikato Studios, the performance shots were made to be very ethereal.

The music video and track will be available soon on all digital platforms very soon. Stay tuned!
