Surprising us with a new inspiring song, MNL48’s Senbatsu presents ‘365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel’. And to be honest, this is the perfect celebratory song for the group’s success over the past few months.

Coinciding with their impending handshake event, they released the music video for their third single, ‘365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel’. Aside from that, the MV release coincides as well with the anticipated election of who stays in the group. Along with it is the selection of new aspirants for the 2nd Generation of the group.
‘365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel’ is performed by MNL48’s Senbatsu, the frontliners of the group. Senbatsu refers to the chosen members to headline the A-side singles.

Never stop dreaming
Buhay ay eroplanong papel
Dala ang pag-ibig ito’y lumilipad
Magtiwala sa sarili at ika’y humayo
Lahat titingala sayo
The song talks about pursuing one’s dream no matter how hard it is. It shows how pure and idealistic our views can be about our dreams. How positive and passionate we are when we talk about our dreams and love. And somehow, the girls evoke that emotion perfectly, being dreamers themselves. Always pursuing what they love, no matter how hard the journey is.
At the same time, the song captures the realistic view of being dreamers. The thought of failing at something you’re passionate about. The existence of obstacles ahead of you. The disappointments, the failures, and the shortcomings. They’ve managed to highlight them as well. And in turn, gave us the inspiration to go through them. Because the endgame won’t be that fulfilling without the feeling of succeeding over obstacles you encounter. Even if it takes longer. Because just like paper airplanes, we’re meant to soar high. And the people around us would have to look up to see us in our grace.
And the girls are the living proof of that. They’ve been through ups and downs, since the beginning and up until now. But there’s no backing down. They’re here and they’re here stay. They’ll keep on soaring and taking themselves to new heights.
