Disney has released its first-ever Filipino-language song, titled ‘Gabay’ and sung by KZ Tandingan, for the upcoming animated film Raya and the Last Dragon.
The release of ‘Gabay’ today (Friday, March 5) coincided with the premiere of Raya and the Last Dragon, both on Disney+ and in cinemas.
“I think what young Filipinas can learn from Raya is to never underestimate yourself,” Tandingan commented to Philippine News Agency. “Never think that you are too young to start the change that your community needs… Because as long as you learn to trust yourself, as long as you do your best and you do it with all your heart, that is all you need to spark change.”

‘Gabay’ joins Jhené Aiko’s recently released song ‘Lead The Way’ as the second original song by a contemporary artist announced for Raya and the Last Dragon. The movie’s soundtrack, which includes its score by James Newton Howard, was released last Friday.
Disney+ subscribers in Singapore will be able to watch Raya and the Last Dragon today – but they will need to pay a one-time fee for Premier Access.
After paying S$38.98, Disney+ subscribers will be able to stream the film from 4pm Singapore time and have unlimited access to it afterwards. Subscribers without Premier Access will be able to stream the film from June 4 onwards.
Raya and the Last Dragon centres on its titular protagonist, voiced by Kelly Marie Tran, who embarks on a search for a legendary last dragon, voiced by Awkwafina, to unite the world of Kumandra, a fictional world inspired by various Southeast Asian cultures.
