TO say Sarah Geronimo’s “Tala” is one of the most successful Filipino songs today is an understatement — and proof of that is its international success.
On Twitter, Billboard revealed that Sarah’s four-year old massive hit debuted on the 12th spot of the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart.
Also included in the list are K-Pop groups Red Velvet, MAMAMOO, BLACKPINK, and BTS, among others.
According to Billboard, the digital song sales charts rank the top-downloaded songs from across different genres.
Released as part of the Popstar Royalty’s twelfth studio album The Great Unknown, “Tala” recently hit 50 million views on YouTube. It also currently holds the second spot on the iTunes Philippines chart.
Meanwhile, VIVA Records released an acoustic version of “Tala” on Spotify.
In 2019, “Tala” became an anthem thanks to the LGBT community who performed the said song in events and a viral video which featured a group of volleyball players.
Earlier this month, “ASAP Natin ‘To” launched #TalaNation which featured performances of the said song from various parts of the country on national television. (Push)
