Gloc 9's Sirena already on the top spot of MYX Daily countdown

In just three days, Gloc 9's Sirena already topped the MYX countdown. "Sirena" is a song which tackles gay issues. The track wants to create a social awareness about the struggles of a gay person in our society. The music video shows that gays are being discriminated. In which some parents beat down their gay children because they can't accept them.

With the help of Ebe Dancel's vocals, the track's chorus becomes more powerful. The chorus, "Ako'y isang sirena, Kahit anong sabihin nila ako ay ubod ng ganda, Ako'y isang sirena, Kahit anong gawin nila bandera ko'y di tutumba, Drum na may tubig ang sinisisid, Naglalakihang mga braso, sa'kin dumidikdik, Drum na may tubig ang sinisisid, Sa patagalan ng paghinga, sa'kin kayo ay bibilib", indicates gays to be more strong even though they are being discriminated because they can do all the hardships.

Gloc 9 is very proud with his new single because he worked very hard on this song not to offend anyone and this is his very first time to make a song about a gay man and to present it in a first person's point of view. [source]

Boy Abunda, one of the successful gays in the country also participated in the music video. Abunda's participation in the music video makes it more pro-gay.

Gloc 9's Sirena will touch your heart especially in the part in which his father finally accepted his gay son and said, "Anak, patawad sana sa lahat ng aking nagawa, Di sinusukat ang tapang at ang bigote sa mukha, Dahil kung minsan mas lalake pa sa lalake ang bakla" (Forgive me son for all the wrong things I've done. Courage and mustache is not the true measures [of being a man] because sometimes gays are more man than a man.)

Sirena will surely topped the MYX Pinoy Countdown and MYX Hitchart next week replacing I'll be There by Julie Anne San Jose on both charts.

"Sirena" is Gloc 9's first single of his new album "MKNM: Mga Kwento ng Makata", under Universal Records. It is also his first album under Universal Records.

The track "Sirena" is a siren to stop the discrimination against gay persons. Gloc 9 once again created a masterpiece on this song after Upuan and Walang Natira. The song Upuan tackles the incumbent officials on the government while the track Walang Natira tackles the sudden migration of Filipinos to work overseas and earn a living there leaving their family here.

Gloc 9 should be dubbed "The Rizal of Rapping" because he wants his listeners to be enlightened like what Rizal did on his two novels, Noli me Tangere and El Filibusterismo.
