Morissette and Jason Dy’s intense ballad duet “Diyan Ba Sa Langit” gets a laid-back version featuring its songwriter Kiko “KIKX” Salazar, which will be available for streaming this Friday Oct. 30.
KIKX said the affecting track, which poses striking questions about a love broken by death and leaves a longing message for our departed loved ones, materialized after he watched the digitally remastered version of “Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit.”
It is also a tribute to his favorite artist and powerhouse vocalist Mariah Carey which made it vocally demanding. Thus, having what he described as the “power combo” of Morissette and Jason for the song was perfect for him.
“Jason has been a good friend since our SoundCloud days and I would personally consider him as one of the greatest voices of this generation,” the songwriter-composer said.
“Morissette and I have come a long way since our ‘Akin Ka Na Lang’ success,” KIKX recalled. “She played a big part on my career and we have built a lasting friendship since then.”
“Diyan Ba Sa Langit” midnite remix is the final single off of KIKX’s “After Dark ‘The Final Hour’” EP in celebration of his 10th year in the music industry, along with Sam Mangubat’s “Hindi Na Nga,” Lance Busa’s “Sa Aking Mundo,” and his collaboration with Kyla, “TLC.” Its original version was released in November 2019.
