“Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay” is a song that talks about a complicated relationship that is caught in a time loop. According to its writer, the story is about a couple who keep returning to their first date whenever someone would die. Either of them would be remembering memories from their past.
Juan Miguel also revealed that he first brainstormed with the director and the band through zoom calls before presenting the idea to KathNiel.
Meanwhile, Jorel, being the music video director, utilized fragmented and non-linear storytelling to showcase the characters’ memories.
One of Ben&Ben’s vocalists, Miguel, explained how the collaboration was realized. According to him, how they ended working with Juan Miguel was the writer’s way of showing appreciation to them.
The band offered their song, “Ride Home” to be used in Juan Miguel’s series, “Gaya Sa Pelikula.” In return, the writer offered to create the script for “Sa Susunod Na Habang Buhay” music video. He also said that he would pitch it to Kathryn and Daniel, who are his close friends.
Miguel said that they were all surprised when they found KathNiel loving both the script and the idea of working with them. They never expected that such great artists, like Juan Miguel, Kathryn, and Daniel, would be willing to work on a music video with them.
Meanwhile, Director Jorel revealed that he did not find it hard to work with the famous love team. He said that he only needed to do a few adjustments because Kathryn and Daniel are both professionals and talented.
He said that even if they did not have a large amount of time working with them, they were able to produce high-quality output, given their power quality in front of the camera. Jorel added that each frame taken has a powerful presence coming from their experience and a long time of acting.
As of writing, the music video almost got 2.5 million views on YouTube already, just one day after it was uploaded.
