“Sana Tayo Na,” a musical collaboration of young recording stars Darren Espanto and Jayda, proved to be a hit among listeners as it received inclusion in a Spotify editorial playlist and racked up views and streams just two weeks after its release.
The love song, a revival of Dingdong Avanzado’s (Jayda’s dad) composition, was featured in Spotify Philippines’ ‘Trending Tracks’ editorial playlist, which lists down viral songs in the country and was also included on Spotify's New Music Friday Philippines on the day of its release.
The song’s music video, released two weeks ago, has already amassed over 630,000 views as of writing. While on Spotify, it currently has over 116,000 streams on the streaming platform.
In a vlog, Jayda shared her experience shooting the video at home and separate from Darren who is in Canada.
“It was a lot of fun shooting virtually because I feel like it’s all a first for us since we don’t have a choice,” Darren said via Zoom.
Meanwhile, fans were clearly thrilled about the collaboration, praising the song, its music video, and the two young artists’ chemistry. Fans can also sing "Sana Tayo Na" with Darren and Jayda on TikTok. The two uploaded videos of themselves while singing their parts of the song on their individual TikTok accounts—allowing users to have a duet with them virtually.
“Sana Tayo Na” music video is available on Star Music’s YouTube channel and can be streamed on various digital streaming services.
