Relatable and full of fireworks!
Start streaming “Mina(mahal ko)” here:
Mina(mahal) Ko is Rhodessa’s lovely tribute to Twice’s Mina Myoi, just as the title hints. The song tells a story of reigniting a past love, beautifully expressed with emotions of desire, bafflement, and optimism.
The captivating music video premiered on Rhodessa’s YouTube channel last August 21, directed by Jeremy Jay Abaño and Deo Tejada.
Ikaw pa rin ang mahal ko hanggang ngayon
Ikaw pa rin kahit pinilit ko pang lumayo, woah-oh
Rhodessa is the next big thing in OPM as she slay continuously with her new masterpieces. Mina(mahal) Ko has the LSS factor (last song syndrome), with repeated words “Ikaw pa rin,” or “You’re still the one,” which will stick with you all day.
The song also creatively highlights a persistent love that is genuine and pure (a common trait for Filipinos). It also gave a nostalgic vibe of a 90’s ballad—a winning combo for another OPM hit! Congratulations Rhodessa!
