No such thing as an old song on TikTok. Just ask Nadine Lustre.
That’s exactly the case when the singer-actress’s old hit “Paligoy-ligoy” resurfaced and is now going viral on the popular app. To date, the TikTok Dance Challenge version of the track has already gained 41 million hashtag views with more than 701,000 video variations and uploads using the song and the hashtag #PaligoyLigoyChallenge.
The trend started just as the Nadine-starrer Deleter went on record as the top-grossing movie of the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival. The “Paligoy-ligoy” suddenly sprouted and immediately went viral.
Sung and recorded by a young Nadine, “Paligoy-ligoy” was originally released back in 2014 as part of the soundtrack of her movie with former flame James Reid, Diary Ng Panget.
The movie was a breakout hit for both Nadine and James that eventually launched the JADINE love team that lasted for several years.
