Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released on July 7, 2023. “Hekasi” is a pop song inspired by people who have gut instinct that their crush also feels the same for them. The title is a word play for “eh kasi” just like the Filipino slang phrase that we always hear when we try to look for answers but get excuses instead. It tells a story of someone who is waiting for a person to admit that they like them. As they try to put them in a corner so they could true to their feelings, the person always tries to make excuses because they feel the butterflies get wild in their stomach.
This is a song for those who are afraid to confess because they are once bitten, twice shy. We dedicate this for those good friends who feel romantic attraction towards each other but are afraid to take the risk to take their connection to the next level.
What is your vision for this song? What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
My vision for this project is that it would become an OST for a romantic-comedy (rom-com) film someday. The lessons I would like to impart on my audience is that they need to take risks, no matter how small or big it is. Life is too short to be afraid of every situation life throws at you, whether it is admitting to someone you have a crush on them, or perhaps pursuing something you really want. You don’t want to live a life full of regrets.
What is your favorite part of this body of work?
My favorite part of “Hekasi” is the title/ hook of the song. “Hekasi,” carries a clever wordplay that adds depth to its meaning. Drawing inspiration from the Filipino slang phrase “eh kasi,” which is often used as an excuse or evasion, the title sets the tone for the song’s narrative. It reflects the frustration and longing of someone who is seeking genuine answers or admissions from their crush but constantly receives excuses instead.
By incorporating this wordplay into the title, the song immediately captures the essence of the emotional struggle and anticipation experienced by individuals who suspect their feelings may be reciprocated but are hesitant to take the next step. It creates a sense of relatability for those who have found themselves in similar situations, where they desire a deeper connection but are apprehensive due to past experiences or fear of rejection.
“Hekasi” is not just a catchy title; it serves as a representation of the emotional vulnerability and yearning explored in the song’s lyrics. It highlights the internal conflict of wanting to express one’s feelings and the delicate dance of trying to encourage the other person to do the same. Through this wordplay, the song sets the stage for a relatable story about unspoken emotions and the longing for a romantic connection.
The song aims to resonate with those who have experienced the ambiguity of being caught between friendship and potential romance. It acknowledges the hesitancy and uncertainty that can arise when two individuals share a strong connection but are afraid to risk jeopardizing their friendship. “Hekasi” serves as an anthem for these individuals, expressing their hopes, fears, and the desire for their emotions to be acknowledged without compromising their bond.
Overall, the title “Hekasi” cleverly captures the essence of the song’s narrative, using wordplay to encapsulate the frustration, longing, and fear associated with unrequited or unexpressed feelings within a friendship.
