How do you feel about this story?


“Idol Philippines” season 1 contestant Carlo Bautista turns the popular ‘hugot’ ballad “Hiling” into an infectious rock tune through his fresh rendition released by Star Music.

An experienced pop alternative music artist, demo singer, and band vocalist, Carlo released the single “Kwarto” featuring Kidwolf in 2019, which became part of the official soundtrack of the iWantTFC series “Mga Batang Poz.” He also previously joined “Tawag ng Tanghalan” on “It’s Showtime.”

His revival of “Hiling” was produced by Jack Rufo and bears a more masculine sound with a distinct drum progression that makes it a surefire earworm for listeners.

The melancholic track—originally popularized by “Pinoy Dream Academy” runner-up Jay-R Siaboc in 2007—serves as a plea to someone’s lost lover by professing unwavering affection despite their separation. Emman Abatayo wrote the song.

Netizens on YouTube could not help but gush over his version. Mae Fucanan commented, “Super ganda ng version na ‘to nakaka good vibes… Congratulations Carlo Bautista.”

“Love the beat!! Galing mo Congrats Brother Carlo,” Irving Jacob echoed.

“Hiling” is just the first track for Carlo’s upcoming extended play (EP) under Star Music that is set to drop early next year. To be updated on his upcoming projects, follow him on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
