Kim Chiu turned her lemons into lemonade after she released her “Bawal Lumabas” song with new lyrics and music she made with Adrian Crisanto and Squammy Beats.
The actress went viral on social media last week after she released a statement regarding the closure of her network ABS-CBN.
Chiu used an analogy of students could be allowed to go out once they comply with the classroom regulations. She received negative criticisms as her explanation, as she also admitted, was not well-formed.
Netizens quickly made fun of Kim Chiu’s statement and made it into memes, parodies, and dance songs.
But Kim seemed recovered from the social media bullying and turned her experience into an inspiring song.
“That feeling na nagising ka trending ka ulit, kinahaban ako. Pero nung nabasa ko, para akong nagising sa isang bangungot!!! Gusto ko pong magpasalamat sa lahat,” she wrote on Instagram on Tuesday.
“Things may put you down pero tayong mga Pilipino hindi natin nakakalimutan tumawa sa gitna ng pinagdadaanan natin. Mahilig tayong tumambay pero hindi sa problema. Salamat sa lahat ng nagbigay inspirasyon sa ‘kin,” she added.
ABS-CBN’s music label Star Music also released a lyric video of the song on Facebook.

Bawal Lumabas Lyrics
Kay gulo gulo ng puso at isipan ko
Daming sinasabi at nangyayari sa paligid ko
Tambay sa bahay, nagkalat ang pasaway
Just like your kilay, mukhang hindi nag-comply
Ba’t ayaw nating maging positive
Napakarami na ring negative
Haters telling me how to live
I just choose to forgive
Sa classroom may batas
Bawal lumabas, oh, bawal lumabas
Pero pag sinabing, pag
(Pero pag sinabing, pag)
Nag comply ka
Na bawal lumabas
Pero may sinabi may ginawa ka
Sa pinagbabawal nila
Yung Law ng Classroom niyo
At sinubmit mo ulit
Ay, pwede na pala ikaw lumabas
Ang buhay ay parang isang malaking silid-aralan
Iba’t ibang tao, pangarap at bisyo, yan ang totoo
Sa bawat hakbang, may leksyon na nakaabang
We will not move on, if we will don’t learn our lesson
Okay lang ang magkamali
Sa buhay, hindi laging madali
Make it right that’s all we need
Pasensya na tao lang
Oh no, you can’t shut me down
I’ll break free, bounce back from the ground
May natatangi tayong batas
Nalilimutan natin madalas
Mahalin mo ang kapwa mo
Kung paano mo mahalin ang sarili mo
