Being a neophyte in the music scene is not an excuse for hip-hop artist Juan Caoile to take space and make his presence felt.
His debut song entitled “Marikit”, a collaboration with fellow artist Kyle, became an instant hit especially among the ladies. As it may be an upbeat song but the lyrics simply reminds everyone that every female in this world deserves to be loved and are worthy of boundless praises.
That’s exactly the reason how “Marikit,” which means beautiful, came to be. It’s Juan’s ode to his girlfriend, who describes in the song as the one who adds color to his life and his answered prayer.
Thanks to his girl for giving him inspiration. Now, his debut song has been making huge waves online.
It made its way not just to Spotify’s Philippines viral 50 playlist; it’s the currently most-streamed daily song too. Plus it has over 230M views on TikTok and it’s even the number one trending on YouTube!
Its catchy lyrics and playful beats successfully made a good impression to the public, even getting the attention of showbiz personalities such as Chie Filomeno, DJ Loonyo, Barbie Forteza, and Tony Labrusca.
These artists took on the #binibiningmarikit dance challenge on TikTok and uploaded their respective entries using the same platform.
The rookie rapper recently signed a record deal with music label Viva Records.
