Kim Chiu’s “Bawal Lumabas” song came out days after her statement on the closure of ABS-CBN during an online protest went viral.
“Things may put you down pero tayong mga Pilipino hindi natin nakakalimutan tumawa sa gitna ng pinagdadaanan natin. Mahilig tayong tumambay pero hindi sa problema. Nandito lang ako. Nadurog man pero hindi susuko,” she wrote in the caption of her vlog.
She added: “Salamat sa lahat ng nagbigay inspirasyon sakin. Gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa lahat. Lets spread love, kindess and positivity. Good vibes lang ang pwede sa classroom! Tama? Tama!”
The said song, produced by DJ Squammy, was made possible after a netizen named Adrian Crisanto made a suggestion to Kim Chiu — via an open letter on Facebook — to record the song.
Prior to the release of the song, “Bawal Lumabas” has spawned memes and dance covers on social media including some on TikTok.
