The actress’ recently-launched “Bawal Lumabas” song which has amassed more than 10 million views across all social media platforms in a single day, ABS-CBN News disclosed.

Aside from Facebook and YouTube, the song will soon be available on other digital platforms like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music and Deezer.

Chiu considers the flak she received from the experience as one of the lowest points of her life, that made her delete her social media accounts.

Nonetheless, she learned an important lesson about having a stronger faith in God, courage and kindness in dealing with bashers.

Hence, the song’s message is about being positive amid personal or social crisis; the only way to turn things around is to accept what happened, respect each other’s opinion and move forward as a better person.

She said she came up with the song after learning the lesson and embracing what has happened.

The actress even put her trending message as chorus. “Sa classroom may batas, bawal lumabas, oh bawal lumabas. Pero ‘pag sinabi, ‘pag nag-comply ka na bawal na lumabas pero may ginawa ka sa pinagbabawal nila, inayos mo ‘yong law ng classroom n’yo at sinubmit mo ulit ay pwede na pala ikaw lumabas.”

“Bawal Lumabas” was written by Chiu, Adrian Crisanto and Squammy Beats. Chir Cataran made the back-up vocals while ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo made the vocal arrangments.

Chiu is one among the many celebrities actively showing support for the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise.
