Shanti Dope and Flow G are two hip-hop powerhouses from the Philippines. The rappers each normally release songs that rake in millions of streams, so it’s no surprise that their new collaboration is going viral in the Philippines on YouTube.
“Kamusta,” which translates to “How are you?” in Tagalog is a powerful song that addresses depression and the importance of being there for your friends and family who may be fighting their own demons. The controversial music video tackles depression, anxiety, filming scandals without consent, and much more.
At the end of the music video, a dedication message reads: “This is dedicated for the loved ones we lost and those who continue to battle for their mental health. There's someone who is always willing to listen,” before sharing contact numbers for the National Center of Mental Health.
