After the success of MNL48’s first music video Aitakatta – Gustong Makita, Hallohallo Entertainment Inc. together with Star Music has released MNL48’s second music video “Talulot ng Sakura” last October 27
on Myx Premiere and their respective Youtube channels.
The second single’s official music video featuring the Senbatsu members: Sheki, Abby, Sela, Tin, Alice, Ella, Ash, Gabb, Jem, Sayaka, Faith, Lara, Grace, Quincy, Alyssa, and Erica was first seen on an exclusive viewing during a blog conference held at ABS-CBN last October 26.
Taken at Movie Stars Café and La Mesa Eco Park, the music video drawn inspiration from the official music video of AKB48’s original version, “Sakura no Hanabiratachi”.
“It’s quite similar po sa AKB48 song na pinakita po ‘yung paghihirap namin, ‘yung mga ups and downs sa journey po namin. ‘Yung sa music video naman po medyo light po, calm ‘yung theme. Halo halo po talaga, nakakatawa na nakakaiyak,” Sela said.
“Yung naging outcome po ng Aitakatta – Gustong Makita music video maganda po, nagustuhan ng karamihan. Dito po sa Talulot ng Sakura, I don’t want to get my hopes up, pero I know magugustuhan din nila ito dahil makaka-relate po sila. Super happy and grateful lang po talaga kami, sobrang heart-warming po ‘yung pag tanggap ng mga tao,” Sela added as she shared her excitement and happiness on the release of the second music video.
“Nung nagsh-shoot po kasi kami diba po nasa nature ako, tahimik lang tapos talagang iniisip ko ‘yung lahat ng naging paghihirap namin sa MNL48 kasi hindi po talaga ganun kadali. Ngayon po unti unti na po namin naaabot ‘yung dreams namin,” Sheki, MNL48’s Center Girl, concluded as she narrated why she felt emotional while shooting their music video.
