Poppert Bernadas, Regine Velasquez release pop collab "Bitaw"

Poppert Bernadas and Regine Velasquez join forces for a pop duet

Collab with Asia’s Songbird ‘a dream come true,’ says Poppert

Former “The Voice Philippines Season 2” contestant Poppert Bernadas teamed up with no less than the Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid on a new pop song called “Bitaw.”

Poppert, together with A Team, produced the song that talks about having someone who serves as a reminder to let go of the negative things that may affect oneself. 

“It’s ok to let go especially if you know you’re at the losing end. It suggests that even if it’s difficult, while it is still early, protect your heart from all the hurt and pain by letting go,” said Poppert on the inspiration behind the song released under Star Music.

The collaboration became a reality when Regine offered to sing the track with Poppert after his original collaborator backed out due to conflicting schedules. He described their duet as a dream come true of his.

“I am amazed how she works during our recording, kasi binigay niya lahat! It took almost two hours to record her part. Since she was very invested to the song, she added some vocal background to it,” he shared. “Never in my wildest dreams na maka-collab ko ang nag-iisang ‘Songbird!’ si Ms. Regine Velasquez #dreamsdocometrue.”

Aside from his music career, Poppert also dabbles in acting. He previously starred as Rio in the ABS-CBN series “Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin” and as Kanor in “Starla.” He also played the role of Kenny in the hit musical “Rak of Aegis.” In 2022, Poppert was also one of the male theater performers who headlined the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ “Triple Threat: Three Tenors” concert series. He is currency under Ogie Alcasid’s A Team and co-managed by Star Magic.
