Venus Raj in Julien Drolon's Ipagpatawad Mo Music Video


YET ANOTHER foreign musician, Julien Drolon, fell in love with the Philippines and launched recently the official music video of an OPM song, Ipagpatawad Mo, starring no less than Miss Universe 2010 4th Runner-Up, Venus Raj.

Just like American singer-songwriter David DiMuzio, who has become a YouTube sensation when he posted videos of him singing OPM and translated popular Pinoy hits into English, French-born musician Julien Drolon also has great love for the Philippines and Filipino music. 

I came across this music video where Julien Drolon croons to the OPM classic, Ipagpatawad Mo, featuring beauty queen Venus Raj as the subject of his romantic obsession. It was shot in Paris and Manila.

Ipagpatawad Mo is a VST & Company original, which Julien gave a modern acoustic feel and inserted a few French phrases in the lyrics.

Other than Ipagpatawad Mo, Julien's love for the Philippines can also be felt in his song, Phil So Good, which mentions what he likes about the country.

Phil So Good by Julien Drolon


Paradise islands, white sand beach
Tropical jungles where tribes still live
Land of Rizal and the guitar strings
Gotta find some time to live it here

I am in the Philippines x 3
And I feel so good, so good

People speak tagalog, sometimes taglish
They love to have fun, they know how to live
With a warm welcome, they will make you feel
Like it is your turn to smile and sing

I am in the Philippines x 3
And I feel so good, so good

comma down selectah...
seat back relax uminum ng beer
itaas ang bote isigaw ang cheers
lay back, while listenin smooth jazz and
feel the cold breeze and keep the wheels blazin
cause all we need is a time to relax
ihanda na ang serbeza lets drink some wapak
sige sige dont stop, non stop ang saya
pag-katapos ng lahat libutin luzviminda
tawagan mo na si jo and i will text julien
hatakin na si joven all over again
cause the best thing in life is life and that's true
huwag hayaan ang saya lagpasan ka nito
take a zip just a trip and take a deep breath
libutin tiaong gubat all by your self
fiyah grill, cold beer, lay back and chill
watch the daet sunsets thats the thrill
sounds cool huh

I am in the Philippines x 3
And I feel so good, so good
Boracay in summer, I went there twice
Wanna feel colder, go to the rice terraces
Palawan is where I took my love
She wanted a romance under the sun
Surf is the best in Siargao
You can also dance up to Malasimbo
And when I need a break from Manila
I got a secret place that I won't say to ya

I am in the Philippines x 3
And I feel so good, so good
