The track – and the rest of the album – arrived on major streaming services on Friday (June 25), accompanied by a music video. In it, Pascual sings by the ocean and an abandoned building, all while playing with molotov cocktails.
The R&B track was produced by Bernard “HARV” Harvey, who previously worked on Justin Bieber’s ‘Peaches’. Per a press release, it touches on the fantasy of remaining in the unknown, and refusing to make a desperate choice in an unconventional relationship.
The ‘Options’ album, Pascual said, revolves around the central theme of self-discovery for a young man who faces endless choices.
“It’s about all the things you go through especially as a young adult, with certain decisions and options that you have to consider,” Pascual said during a press conference on the album’s launch, per ABS-CBN.
The album also comes two years after the release of the title track, which has since gotten several different versions, including a Moophs remix and a stripped-down rendition.
Released via Tarsier Records, the album also features collaborations with produces from the United States and the Philippines.
