Ben&Ben just dropped an English cover of their hit record “Langyang Pag-ibig” titled “Was This Love.” The new rendition of the angry break-up anthem translates some of the lyrics to English, while maintaining the flow and structure of the original. Some of the new lyrics in the reimagined verse are: The reworked verse now goes: “Been a while since we last talked I recall the words you said/“Even though what we had might be over now /Honey, can we still be friends?”
Like its predecessor "Langyang Pag-ibig," follow-up version “Was This Love” is a rock song that lyrically narrates the messiness of a bad break-up. Watch an in-studio performance video of the band performing their latest bilingual release below.

Ben&Ben is back with new release Langyang Pag-ibig, which in English translates to "That's just love." The track is an angsty rock anthem that lyrically wades into the messiness of a bad breakup. The song depicts the struggle and anger of someone trying to get their life back together.
“It's the song where we flexed our musicality the most,” says the acclaimed band. “It's three songs in one song, but it still sounds like one song.” This latest track was produced by Ben&Ben and Jean Paul Verona, mixed by Sam Marquez and Verona, and mastered by Leon Zervos.
“We’ve always wanted to make a song with this vibe, and we think the songwriting in itself begged for it,” shares the chart-topping folk-pop group in a statement. “It helped that Jean Paul and Sam were very familiar with the vibe we were going for and that helped create the general mood and sound we wanted for Langyang Pag-ibig.”
