MANILA – The band of Juan Karlos Labajo took their supporters to a roller coaster of emotions as they released their own cover of the OPM classic “IKaw Ang Aking Mahal.” Originally recorded by VST & Co., Labajo’s rendition gave the song a new twist that’s fresh for today’s listeners. Three days since the release of the single, the band’s track already has more than 100,000 streams on Spotify. In an interview with ABS-CBN News last July, Labajo said he does not want to adhere to the tried-and-tested way to fame. He said he wants to create music he can truly call his own — a genuinely exciting sentiment given that he carved his path in this industry by performing minus-one covers for his coaches’ approval. Labajo first rose to fame after he joined “The Voice Kids” during the season that Lyca Gairanod won.
