Kapuso actress and ‘Legal Wives’ star Bianca Umali pours her heart once more in a moving heartbreak song titled ‘Itigil Mo Na’ under GMA Music released last Thursday, Sept. 30.
Despite her accomplishments as an actress, Bianca is also making a name for herself in the music scene. Her debut track ‘Kahit Kailan’ was nominated at the 34th Awit Awards for ‘Best Performance for a New Female Recording Artist’ and ‘Best Engineered Recording.’
‘Itigil Mo Na’ paints the sad and cyclic unrequited love story familiar to Filipinos in a soothing and groovy musical arrangement of modern sensibilities. It is about a girl who’s falling for a guy who is in love with someone else.
Both cinematic and good for easy listening, the song was written by award-winning writer-director-singer-songwriter Njel de Mesa.
Through its heartfelt lyrics, Bianca hopes to give comfort to those experiencing heartaches, “The message of the song is that nagkakaroon talaga ng mga pagkakataon na sobra-sobra tayong magmamahal, to the point na hindi na natin kayang i-let go ‘yung taong mahal natin, kahit na hirap na hirap na at ang sakit-sakit na. To those experiencing heartbreaks, okay lang ‘yan. Normal lang ‘yan. Wag natin lalabanan o tatakbuhan ang hirap at sakit. Kailangan natin mapagdaanan at tiisin lahat yan, dahil ito ang huhubog sa atin na maging mas mabuti, mas matibay at mas matapang na tao. Worth it lahat ng sakit, trust me.”
Currently, Bianca is starring in the top-rating GMA primetime series ‘Legal Wives’ and is gearing up for HBO’s ‘Halfworlds’.
