OPM band Ben&Ben released on Sunday, August 29, their much-awaited album Pebble House Volume 1: Kuwaderno, which includes their new collaboration with Pinoy supergroup SB19, titled "Kapangyarihan."
The song was first released by Ben&Ben's Miguel and Paulo Benjamin Guico last December, in response to the cold-blooded murder of Sonya and Frank Gregorio by former police officer Jonel Nuezca in Tarlac. In the new version, they tapped SB19's John Paulo Nase to add a few lines.
"Akala niyo ba, ang kapangyarihan ay nasa inyo? Sino ba kayo? 'Di naman kami nagkulang sa aming pag-uunagawa. 'Di ka namin isusuka kung hindi ka pa sukdulan. Huwag niyong tapakan ang katarungan," a portion of the lyrics go.
Incidentally, the release of the new version of "Kapangyarihan" comes just a few days after Nuezca was found guilty of murder and sentenced to Reclusion Perpetua. You can listen to the powerful song below:
Currently, the lyric video of "Kapangyarihan" is one of the top trending music videos on YouTube, with nearly 273,000 views.
"Kapangyarihan" marks the second time Ben&Ben and SB19—two of the country's biggest acts—have joined forces. Last June, they collaborated for a new version of the latter's song "MAPA", which is a touching tribute to parents.
Meanwhile, aside from SB19, Ben&Ben also collaborated with Parokya Ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda, singer-songwriter Moira dela Torre, singers KZ Tandingan and Zild, and bands juan karlos and Muni Muni for their album Pebble House.
The album, which follows 2019's Limasawa Street, is out now on all streaming platforms.
