Music video Director Carlo Manatad shared that he wanted the music video to have its unique concept showing how the girls enjoy singing the song. “I wanted to be very conceptual. Mas bubbly but at the same time fierce, para siyang combination ng very hip but also classy feel so you see the colorful side and the Victorian classic concept, but of course not being away from the usual dancing which is part of the whole song na maganda ‘yung choreography.”
Manatad, who started as a film editor and has been in the video production industry for years, believes that the girls are very talented and are all good performers. “Gusto ko lang din sabayan ‘yung energy nila kasi they’re good dancers, good singers deserve nila ng better output and showcase what they can do. Sobrang natutuwa ako they really have their own unique personalities, they’re very nice, very bubbly, very young marami pa silang matututunan.”
Moreover, being the center girl of the music video was a surprise for Coleen but admitted that she was overwhelmed and proud of herself and for her team for being chosen for the music video. “Sobrang natutuwa po ako na binigyan po ako ng chance and ng trust. Sobrang saya po talaga lalo nung nakita namin ‘yung sample shots, ang ganda po talaga kaya excited na po ako mapanuod.”
Team Captain Ecka also narrated her experience in shooting the music video. “Sobra po akong tuwang tuwa kasi talagang matagal na naming minimithi ito lalo na team pa namin ‘yung napili, kaya sobra po ‘yung preparation namin and excitement para dito.”
