DJ Loonyo has teamed up with Kim Chiu for the official choreography of the actress’ (in)famous Bawal Lumabas song.
Kim earlier reached out to DJ Loonyo following netizens’ requests for the internet dancing sensation to create “OG dance steps” for the “classroom song”.
The newest choreo dubbed the Bawal Lumabas Galaw Challenge premiered on Kim’s YouTube vlog on Monday, the same day the song was made available on digital platforms.
“Still can’t believe BAWAL LUMABAS (the classroom song) is finally an official song. Out na siya today on all digital platforms, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and YouTube. Mabuhay kayong lahat,” wrote Kim in her recent vlog’s description.
She added, “Special thank you to DJ Loonyo for doing the OG steps of #BawalLumabasGalawChallenge. Salamat jud kaayo! More power! All the best!”
In the vlog, Kim took the chance to thank DJ Loonyo for his kind words and for his statement that he didn’t want to join the “Bawal Lumabas hype” out of respect for the Kapamilya actress.
DJ Loonyo earlier reacted to Kim Chiu’s “call out” in a Facebook Live on Sunday, saying, “Naalala ko nung time na sinabi ko ‘hell no’ kasi ayokong gumawa ng isang bagay na makakasakit ng kapwa ko.”
“And I believe, if I’m gonna do it, hindi ko siya gagawin, not unless Kim Chiu will talk to me or personally message me na okay na gawan,” he said.
In Kim’s vlog, DJ Loonyo continued to come to the defense of the actress.
“Kasi nung nakita ‘yung interview mo, normal naman ‘yun eh. Parang ‘di ba hindi naman tayo perpekto eh. Kahit ako minsan ‘pag nagla-live ako ‘pag sobra-sobra ‘yung emotion minsan may gusto tayong ilabas pero parang alam mo ‘yun sa sobrang emosyon na nangyayari and then nawawala ang technical na parts. Pero that’s okay. Kumbaga parang binig-deal ng tao then ginawan ng beat and all,” he said.
He also revealed the major reason why he decided to take on the dance challenge.
“Kasi ako personally nung nag-story ka, na parang nag-invite ka na you want an OG step, kumbaga para sa akin, I want to do it kasi I want to be a part of your movement na that’s really inspiring. Na from that point in your life or situation in life, na ako talagang nakakaintindi ako nun na ang hirap ibangon nun,” he said.
“Hindi ko gagawan yung challenge because of the music or dahil ba hype siya, hindi. Dahil I want to join the movement, because it’s really inspiring for people,” he added.
DJ Loonyo also released a dance tutorial of the Bawal Lumabas song on his Youtube channel.
