Moira Dela Torre releases ‘Paubaya’ MV starring Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto. Singer Moira Dela Torre drops her bittersweet music video of “Paubaya” on February 14, starring the former real-life couple Joshua and Julia, bringing tears to their fans on Valentine’s Day.
In the emotional music video, Julia and Joshua play characters that are fictionalized versions of themselves.
It first showed happy moments of them, the heartwarming engagement not until it came to when Julia ran away on their wedding day just after Joshua said ‘Yes.’
Moira Dela Torre releases ‘Paubaya’ MV starring Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto. Later on, after Julia leaves Joshua at the altar, she returns to the church, apologizes to each other, and forgives each other for their shortcomings.
After their talk, they come to conclude with the possibility that they might not just be meant for each other and that at least they have tried to make it work.
“Sinubukan naman natin, ‘di ba (We tried to make it work, didn’t we)?” Julia said.
Moira Dela Torre releases ‘Paubaya’ MV starring Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto. It inserted a personal video of the two from before, where they were still together, into the music video, and they even used their real names on the part where they were having a heart-to-heart talk. This heartbreaking scene was considered by many as a form of “closure” for the two.
It was as if Joshua and Julia talked about their own failed relationship and saying their sorry’s and thank you’s to each other for all the memories they shared in real life.
“Paubaya” is a song about letting go of a love that wasn’t meant to be, and it is the last chapter of Moira’s Patawad era, her 2020 album of the same name.
Within a few hours of its release, the video has become a trend and instantly earned over one million views. The music video was directed by Niq Ablao and written by her with Dela Torre and Jason Hernandez.
The former real-life couple had been split since 2019, and that they were able to remain friends after the break-up.
