SunKissed Lola jokingly ‘changes’ name of their hit song ‘Pasilyo’ after IU’s viral cover

OPM band SunKissed Lola jokingly changes the name of their hit song “Pasilyo” following the singer IU’s viral cover of their track.

Last June 1, Korean singer-songwriter and actress IU held her concert at the Philippine Arena for her “H.E.R.E.H” world tour. During the concert, she surprised fans with her own rendition of the rock band’s hit song.

Upon seeing the viral cover online and recovering from their initial shock that the Korean superstar knew their song, they have recently posted several times on X (formerly Twitter), jokingly suggesting they will change their song in honor of IU’s performance.

One of their posts wrote, “okay mareng IU Pashilyo na ang title [okay IU, my friend, Pashilyo is the new title.]”

In another post, they wrote, “si Mareng IU ang masusunod [We will follow what our friend IU sayid.]” The said post was accompanied by a photo changing the name of the song from “Pasilyo” to “Pashilyo” and as they said in the post, IU is in charge.

Social media users took to social media to express their thoughts about the said move by the band.

Some social media users even had to do a double take and check the streaming platform if they had really changed it according to their post but it was clearly edited as their song is still officially titled “Pasilyo” on Spotify.
