Maki drops another heartbreaking single "HBD"

January 15, 2024 AT 10:55 AM

Fresh from the success of his “Tanong” EP

Rising Kapamilya artist Maki welcomed 2024 with a brand new alternative pop single called “HBD.”

The song immediately hit the top spot of Spotify Philippines’ New Music Friday playlist while Maki got featured as the playlist’s cover artist.

“HBD” is a track about remembering the birthday of one’s former lover while musing on whether to reach out or let go. Written by Maki and Nhiko Sabiniano, it also speaks of acceptance of a lost love in the process.

Maki introduced “HBD” through an intimate launch party held last January 7 at Magdamag Market Café in Quezon City where he and his fans shared their HBD stories or experiences of longing for loved ones on their birthday.

His latest music follows the successful “Tanong” EP he dropped late last year under Tarsier Records, featuring equally heartbreaking songs “Kailan?,” “Bakit?,” and “Saan?,” which is his biggest hit to date with 49 million streams on Spotify alone.
