SETH Fedelin and Francine Diaz

Francine Diaz and Seth Fedelin take center stage as friends who secretly like each other in the music video of Nobita’s “Tayo Na Lang,” released via Sony Music Entertainment.

This marks the second time that the popular loveteam known as “FranSeth” has starred in a music video, following their much-buzzed stint as a young couple in Ace Banzuelo’s viral hit “Muli” in 2022.

According to MV director Jeff Valencia, Francine and Seth were unanimously the first choice of the band for this project.

“The members of Nobita are fans of Franseth,” Valencia reveals. “But more than their preference, there’s something about Francine and Seth that exudes both chemistry and enigma. It felt like the song was specifically written for them. That’s how good and natural their performance was.”

Set in a slumber party with a group of friends enjoying a fun-filled nightcap, the visual narrative fits perfectly with the song’s heartfelt earnestness and feel-good vibe, but takes a different turn towards the end.

“The plot twist is something that is non-negotiable on our part,” shares lead vocalist and acoustic guitarist Jaeson Felisimino. “The journey matters the most, for sure, but there’s so much weight in the things that we least expect. We’re grateful to our friend Jeff Valencia for turning our vision into a reality.”

Just in time for the Valentine season, Nobita released “Tayo Na Lang” on all digital music platforms at midnight on 14 February. The alt-pop ballad garnered significant attention on the day of its release, with #StreamTAYONALANGonSpotify becoming a trending topic.

“Tayo Na Lang” is written by Jaeson Felismino, Sam Aquino II, and Mark Quintero, with co-production by Brian Lotho. The track sounds classic Nobita in terms of musicality and arrangement, creating a wonderfully dreamy backdrop that conveys those early days of passion and longing.

“We just want to make songs that reflect the state that we’re in,” shares Nobita in a press statement. “We also care about delivering good songs that stand the test of time. We hope ‘Tayo Na Lang’ makes the cut and will be remembered as the song that inspired our audience in a positive way.”
