Does Ben&Ben’s “Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin” Reflect the Current Situation of our Society? Listen and Find Out




Following the successful release of Ben&Ben’s song called “Lifetime” last June, the award-winning folk-pop band has released another new song entitled “Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin.”

Almost a month after the releasing the full studio version of the song on Independence Day, “Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin” official music video has premiered on YouTube just a few days ago on July 10, 2020 and as of July 14, Tuesday, the video made it on YouTube’s trending list with more than 300,000 views in four days.




This single has also reached more than a million streams in its second week on Spotify alone, making it one of the biggest releases of the month so far.

What’s Special About “Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin”


Ben&Ben’s “Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin” is a song deviates from the common concepts such as love which we already get to encounter in most songs these days.

Their new single rather revolves around a realistic depiction of a family with each member learning speak their minds and eventually how to listen to each other. Thus, the song is described by the band as “Isang alay sa ating mga kapamilya. Para sa bigat ng mga pangyayari ngayon.”

With everything that has been going on since the year started, including the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic and many other concerns that followed, people already began to have countless of contrasting opinions. Some of which even cause harm or negative effect on others.

This song reflects the current situation of the society we live in. Each side has their own say about a certain issue or a certain problem, but who’re all ears?

Your family? Your friends? The government perhaps? If nobody’s listening, apparently, there will be no understanding and the song already says it all.

Ben&Ben’s “Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin” Lyrics

Sasalubungin kita sa dulo ng ‘yong galit
Uunawain kita para ‘di tayo maging
Epidemyang ‘di matapos-tapos sugpuin
O problemang ‘di makita, sa’n ang salarin?
Tayo ba ay naging makasarili?
Sarado ba’ng tenga sa mga hiling?
Nakikinig ka ba sa akin?
Hindi kita gustong awayin
Pareho ang ating hangarin
Ang kadiliman ay basagin
Kung mayro’n kang pupurihin
Sige lang, gawin mo ‘yan
Kung mayro’n kang babatikusin
Sige lang, gawin mo ‘yan
Mahalaga’y bawat isa’y mapakinggan
Nakikinig ka ba sa akin?
Hindi kita gustong awayin
Pareho ang ating hangarin
Ang kadiliman ay basagin
Patawad na sa pagkukulang
Naririnig kita
Nakikinig ka ba sa akin?
Hindi kita gustong awayin
Pareho ang ating hangarin
Ang kadiliman ay basagin
Nakikinig ka ba sa akin?
Ang bukas ay ating yakapin
Pareho ang ating hangarin
Ang kadiliman ay basagin
Nakikinig ka ba? (Sasalubungin kita)
Nakikinig ka ba? (Sa dulo ng ‘yong galit)
Nakikinig ka ba? (Uunawain kita)
Nakikinig ka ba? (Para ‘di tayo maging…)
Sasalubungin kita sa dulo ng ‘yong galit
