After entering the MYX Daily Top 10 just three days ago, "Sirena" now holds the #1 spot! Gloc-9 also launches his latest album "Mga Kuwento Ng Makata" TONIGHT at the Eastwood Central Plaza at 7PM. Fans who will buy the album at the venue will have a FREE limited edition MKNM lanyards and poster, on a first come, first served basis.
MYXph was present during the first day of shooting of "Sirena". "The song chronicles the life of a gay person. Mula sa pagkabata hanggang sa deathbed nung tatay niya," says Ebe Dancel who was Gloc-9's chosen collaborator on the song which speaks on a first person point of view. "Sana makita namin araw-araw sa charts," says Gloc-9 whose wish came true after "Sirena" finally premiered on the MYX channel last week.
The music video is directed by J. Pacena who has worked with the rapper on "Walang Natira", "Upuan" and MYX Music Awards 2012 Favorite Urban Video "Elmer". The "Sirena" video also features prominent gay personalities like members of the Ladlad Party List and Boy Abunda.
