If you’ve ever wondered how K-pop songs like The Truth Untold by BTS or Just A Little Bit by ENHYPEN would sound like in Tagalog, Trisha Denise has got you covered.
You want to know what’s ironic? The fact that among the millions of people who listen to and enjoy K-pop or K-content in general, a good chunk of them don’t speak or understand Korean fluently. We sing out loud to our favorite K-pop songs yet most of the time, we don’t even know what we are singing about. But that is the power of music. Even if it is not in the language you speak or understand, if you like and vibe with it, then that’s ok. But has it ever crossed your mind how a K-pop song or K-drama OST would sound like if sung in Tagalog? Well, let us introduce to you Trisha Denice.
A-TIER TAGALOG COVERS
It all started back in October this year when Trisha uploaded her cover of a song from Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha’s OST in Tagalog on her TikTok page. While for some people translating a whole song in Korean to Tagalog may be a difficult task, Trisha stepped up to the plate to deliver a stunning cover. Not only did she translate the lyrics to Tagalog, she also captured the feel, mode, and vibe of the track as well. Combined with her excellent vocals, it made for a cover that sounds like it was originally made in Tagalog. The cover naturally went viral and since then she has been posting Tagalog covers of K-Drama OSTs and K-pop songs. As of this writing, she has garnered over 1.2 million likes on TikTok and some of her videos have surpassed one million views.
When you watch her covers, the quality is top-tier. Which is why it’s little surprise to learn that Trisha Denise is a professional singer/songwriter. In fact, she is signed to Star Music and has written tracks for many big artists. Trisha is the songwriter behind Belle Mariano’s Sigurado and For Your Eyes Only and Maymay Entrata’s ‘Di Kawalan, to name a few. She also has dropped her own original music and released her debut album, Piece of the Puzzle, this past May. And to top it all off, her music has also been included in the OST to a few movies. So, Trisha is clearly talented and her Tagalog covers are further proof of that. The only thing that would make it better is if we got full covers.
