Last year, indie pop rock group This Band which first gained popularity for their viral hit song ”Kahit Ayaw Mo Na” reached out to Callalily and the six-piece group then pitched their idea to produce a song together which led to  the birth of “Bahala Na.” As a band that has only been around for less than four years, This Band said it is honored to be part of the special collaboration. “Bilang isang band na nagsisimula pa lang, isa sa mga pangarap namin ay maka-collab ang isa sa pinaka-magaling na hitmaker sa Pinas,” Euwie Loria, This Band’s rhythm guitarist, said.
