A well-loved classic, “Walang Kapalit” has become a staple in karaoke bars around the country.

Many thought it is just another love song until composer Rey Valera admitted it is actually a song for the LGBTQ+ community.

According to the seasoned singer-songwriter, the late comedian Ike Lozada actually asked him to write it.

The song tells the story of a gay man falling for a guy who can’t love him back.

The chorus goes: “At kung hindi man dumating sa ‘kin ang panahon/Na ako ay mahalin mo rin/Asahan mong ‘di ako magdaramdam kahit ako ay nasasaktan/Huwag mo lang ipagkait na ikaw ay aking mahalin.”
