 A song about cherishing moments with loved ones

Star Pop artist Jose Vitug leaves a profound message about constantly treasuring moments with loved ones in his debut solo single “Huling Yakap.”


“I want the song to remind everyone to cherish every moment and every person in our lives because we'll never know when our ‘huling yakap’ will be. Ngayon na ba? Bukas? In a few hours? Who knows?” he explained.


Jose is a 24-year-old singer and musician who is also one of Star Pop’s male trio called “Chill Guys” with Brian Gazmen and Bryce Manzano. As a group, they released the single “Ako Para Sa’yo” earlier in 2021, and have covered HIMIG 11th Edition’s 2nd Best Song “Kahit Na Masungit.”


Now, Jose is trying to make a mark as a solo artist with the acoustic track “Huling Yakap,” a song that also reflects the sentiment of writer and composer Melchizedek Lozarita II when his father passed away in 2019.


“I didn't get the chance to hug him one last time before he passed away, and now gagawin ko ang lahat just to get even one second to hug him one last time,” he said.


Originally with English lyrics, “Huling Yakap” was translated to Filipino for a more personal feel. Star Pop label head Rox Santos produced the track with arrangement by Tommy Katigbak.


Love fiercely and stream Jose’s “Huling Yakap,” out now on Star Music’s YouTube channel and on various digital music streaming platformsFor more details, follow Star Pop on Facebook ( and on Twitter and Instagram (@starpopph).
