Gloc-9's newest single 'Hoy' screams proud Pinoy good vibes

By Netchai Moldes

Gloc-9's newest single, "Hoy" debuted on MYX today, May 13.

The song celebrates Pinoys who never forget to enjoy life in spite of the challenges they face.

It was, Gloc-9 admitted, a last-minute addition to complete his new album "Sukli" under Star Music: A three-letter title finished in three hours.

"Ang nakakatuwa talaga dun sa song, kasi naniniwala talaga ako na 'pag 'yung kanta ay nakatakda nang masulat, masusulat 'yun kahit ano'ng mangyari," he said in an interview earlier. "Kasi on the last day of my recording, meron akong ibang kantang sinusulat. Siguro 'yung song na 'yun sinusulat ko na for a week, hindi ko matapos. And on the day of my last recording, ala-una 'yung recording ko eh, 9 o'clock sinusulat ko pa rin 'yung song na 'yun."

He continued, "Pagtuntong ng 10, nag-decide ako na hindi ko itutuloy 'yung song. Then from 10 o'clock until makarating ako ng studio, sinimulan kong sulatin 'yung 'Hoy.' Nag-start ako from zero ulit. Matagal na 'yung melody sa akin, natisod ko lang kasi marami akong melody sa cellphone, 'nung narinig ko ulit 'yung melody, dun nagtuloy-tuloy na hanggang sa natapos ko 'yung song."

Gloc-9 further explained what the song is all about.

"Very happy kami dun sa outcome nung song. It's about the characteristics ng buhay natin dito sa Pilipinas," he related. "'Yung mga buhay ng mga marami sa mga kababayan natin, pero 'yung nakakatuwa dun, dahil nga sa mga Pilipino tayo, nakukuha nating tawanan kahit ang mga pinakamabibigat na problema."
 
Being recognized and admired by being a modern poet, he said that it is more of a blessing than a skill.

"Kaya ko po laging sinasabi na ito ay bigay lang din sa akin, dumadating lang talaga siya eh. Ang tawag ko dun magic moment lagi eh, na nakakasulat ako ng song na natutuwa talaga ako and na parang hindi mo pinilit, 'yung parang lumabas lang talaga. Biyaya talaga siya. I consider it a blessing talaga." he explained.

The music video was directed by Paul Basinillo, popular in doing the concerts of Sarah Geronimo and Enrique Gil, and of Gloc-9 himself, among others.
A little trivia: It was a continuous uninterrupted shot at around 75 percent speed, so it was done in slow motion when it was played back.

"Sukli" will have its grand launch on June 5 at Market! Market!
