Manila, Philippines – January 29, 2024 – Chart-topping artist Janine Berdin, known for her hit single “Sitwasyonship,” and Arthur Nery of “Pagsamo” fame is set to captivate audiences with their collaboration song titled, “Mikasa.”

Janine Berdin, an avid fan of manga and anime, drew inspiration from her favorite anime film, “Attack on Titan,” for her latest single, “Mikasa.” The song not only showcases Berdin’s artistic prowess but also features the remarkable collaboration with Arthur Nery, who shares Berdin’s passion for anime.

“‘Mikasa’ is a track I initially wrote myself, and as I worked on it with my bandmates – Kirk Basilio, Luke Casanova, and TJ Castillon – I couldn’t help but envision Arthur Nery on the track,” Berdin explained. “This is my first time reaching out for a collaboration, and I knew Arthur would be the perfect fit, being a fellow anime enthusiast. His support and contribution to the song have been nothing short of incredible, and we are honored to have him on board.”

Berdin shared that “The song is heavily inspired by Attack on Titan character Mikasa Ackerman’s point of view. It explores the theme of an unhealthy, one-sided love rooted in irrational desire, leading the lover to do anything, regardless of how unreasonable.”

Berdin further elaborated on the unique qualities of the track, stating, “It’s like a movie in a song. You can really feel the journey of pain and longing from the music to its dynamics. My personal favorite is the hauntingly desperate echoes in the bridge that go ‘I want, I need you’ on loop, complemented by a soul-stirring guitar solo by my bandmate TJ.”

Arthur Nery for his part jumped at the opportunity presented him by Janine Berdin, seeing that he himself is fan of the manga-adapted anime film “Attack On Titan.” The two have been friends since the pandemic and have been supportive of each other’s music.

Released Sunday, January 28, by Viva Records, the date coincides with the birthdate of both Janine Berdin and Arthur Nery. Fans can experience the emotional depth and musical brilliance of “Mikasa” on various streaming platforms.
