 Recalling a past love in his self-penned song


Filipino-British music artist Jon Guelas bares the “Hardest Thing” he had to do in a past relationship in his emotional single released under Tarsier Records.


The former “X Factor UK” contestant wrote “Hardest Thing” when he was at a crossroad in a relationship. The sentimental pop song explores the complicated emotions of wanting to be truthful despite possibly causing pain to someone special.


Jon said, “Sometimes it is so difficult to be honest with someone you’re with because you don’t want to hurt them. You still care but you’ve grown into different people, so how will you go about that?”


Meanwhile, ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo shared his impression with the song during his guesting on PIE Channel. He said, “Walang madaling way to leave someone, you have to face it. It's going to be difficult, it's going to be hurtful, and wala kang tamang masasabi dahil magiging painful lagi. Kaya tama 'yung title ‘Hardest Thing,’ ang ganda ng song, congrats Jon."


Listeners on YouTube likewise praised Jon for his impactful songwriting that resonated with them. Gabby Rodriguez commented, “A masterpiece that speaks deeply to the heart! Congrats Jon!”


“Beautiful song that I keep listening to over and over again,” Pamela Juliano said.


“Hardest Thing” is a fresh addition to Jon’s impressive discography so far, which include his singles “Wonderland,” “Out of Love,” “Did I Let You Go,” and “Work This Time.” This 2022, “Did I Let You Go” became part of the original soundtrack (OST) for “He’s Into Her” season 2, which also included a duet version of the song with Vivoree.


Listen to Jon’s newest single “Hardest Thing,” out now on various digital music platforms. Check out also its lyric video on Tarsier Records’ YouTube channel. For updates, follow Tarsier Records on its various social media accounts @tarsierrecords.
