What if you got all the chances to get over someone, but your system just rejects that very notion? What if it’s always one step forward, two steps back?
Angelina Cruz’s latest release “Ayoko Lang” is all about that empty feeling, those seemingly endless nights of sadness after a bad breakup. The standout ballad easily captivates in its warm string melody and vulnerable lyrics carefully sung by Angelina and was produced by a Canada-based musician.
Speaking of captivating strings, the guitar player for this track is the ever-talented Filipino-Canadian Ricky Tillo, who rose to fame as the tour guitarist of Lady Gaga.
“Kayang kaya humanap ng iba / Ayoko lang, ayoko lang / Kayang-kayang kalimutan ka / Ayoko lang ayoko lang,” the now 20-year-old artist sings.
Since her standout music scene debut in 2017 with her version of “Can’t Help Falling In Love”, Angelina Cruz has been so passionate to capture her listeners’ hearts with her soulful vocals. Her stripped-back cover of “Hanggang Kailan” by Orange & Lemons back in 2018 became a standout hit, now with over 10 million streams on Spotify and counting.
“Ayoko Lang” by Angelina Cruz was released on all digital streaming platforms under Universal Records last Feb. 11.
