Bugoy Drilon guested on The Lunch Table with Nico Blitz to talk about his humble beginings as a janitor/farmer before joining the Pinoy Dream Academy music competition show and shared who he would love to collaborate with which included Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes, J. Boog, FIA and the Common Kings.
The Common Kings responded to the interview on MYX saying "Let's do it!!!" as well as reposting an instagram story that included a clip from one of his past appearances singing "No Other Love," with the caption "Looking forward to collab with you bro!"
Hope to see the colab happen in the near future with the two talents. The Common Kings are loved by Filipinos across the globe.
Here's a flashback to when Bugoy performed "No Other Love" by the Common Kings and J. Boog at a ABS-CBN morning TV appearance and concert.
Philippines based, R&B & Reggae artist Bugoy Drilon pairs up for the first time with island pop producer & Tarsier Records Founder, Moophs, for a venture into the lovers rock genre. “Tied” is a reggae track that speaks of hope amidst unrequited love. Though it seems to sit at the sunny and bright side of reggae, the lyrical theme belongs to that of one-sided love left with hope for a new day melded in a remarkably infectious melody. A futuristic music video about love that cannot be is in the works. “Tied” by Bugoy Drilon and Moophs is now out on all digital streaming platforms.
