Rap artist Shehyee’s music video’s views for “Aba Okay Din” hit 1 million today, March 18. It was posted just five days ago.
In his latest single, Shehyee touches on the hot topic of double standards. He also goes against the prevalent notion that women always get the raw end of things when it comes to gender double standards. In this grooving, expletive-filled banger, Shehyee enumerates his grievances on the matter.
The music video reflects the “Trip Lang” singer’s sarcastic jabs on the matter. While the lyrics are biting and expletive-filled, the music video is upbeat and hilarious. Shehyee’s comical portrayal of himself in the video is akin to him saying ‘Relax I’m just blowing off steam on this matter.’ When Shehyee usually does this, he makes for some highly listenable rap tunes.
Fortunately, netizens are getting what Shehyee is trying to convey in “Aba Okay Din.”
“I’m a woman pero di ako na-offend sa kantang ‘to,” said one YouTube comment (Mariene Villaceran). She added, “The message of the song speaks facts. Men deserve to be respected too. ‘Yung iba kasi ina-advocate equality not realizing na mas ina-advocate nila ‘yung feminism.”
“Given na may bastos sa lyrics pero may laman siya. I mean, oo nga naman grabe makahingi ng gender equality ‘yung iba pero ‘di naman nila kayang gawin sa iba,” said another YouTube commenter (Jomarc Goce).
Fans of Shehyee meanwhile are just plain gushing about the rap artist’s new song.
“Mas malupit nung may official MV na. Bangis!” said one (Jonn Enguero). Meanwhile, Wil Dasovich goes: “My guy wit (sic) another banger” (on-fire emoji).
Making appearances on the music video are several social media personalities. Among them sexpot celebrity Sunshine Guimary, Sexbomb New Gen’s Eunice Creus and Natalie Peters, and Viva Artist Shaine Vasquez. Also on the music video are Shehyee’s crew at Team Tambay: Balong, Boy Turok, Damulog and Julius “Banoobs” Mariano.
“Aba Okay Din” is released under Shehyee’s long-time label, Viva Records.
