Zack Tabudlo, whose debut album Episode (2021) spawned hits like “Binibini” and “Habang Buhay,” is releasing a new version of his English-language hit from that album, “Give Me Your Forever.” This time, he brings on board the Thai artist Billkin to give new life to the pop and R&B ballad. This collaboration features subtle touches that discerning listeners of the original will enjoy.
Zack chalks up his collaboration to the Southeast Asian success of “Give Me Your Forever,” where he says that its popularity in countries such as Thailand and Indonesia and its virality on social media platforms such as TikTok drew the attention of Billkin’s team. Billkin’s label, Nadao Music, also happens to be distributed by Universal Music Thailand, Zack says. The two labels got the two artists to work together on “Give Me Your Forever”.
Zack wrote, recorded, and produced the track here in Manila, while Billkin recorded and sent his vocals over for the former to include in the final mix. This edition of “Give Me Your Forever” retains the original lyrics. Zack says that the lyrics were inspired by seeing an old couple in their 70s walking hand in hand and smiling to each other. He wanted to imagine how their love story would be like.
Despite all the challenges people everywhere are going through now, Zack and Billkin agree that this track is something that they hope will bring happiness and joy. The upbeat, “love wins” message of “Give Me Your Forever” becomes stronger thanks to the blend of the two artists styles which will, in Billkin’s words, “generate new feelings for the fans.”
