Gloc-9 and Rico Blanco Collaborate with Jennylyn Mercado in "Magda" Music Video
After sharing the story of a gay guy who manned up and took care of his Dad until his deathbed, Gloc-9 now talks about the plight of a female prostitute.
"Magda" is the first single from the OPM rapper's latest album "Liham at Lihim".
No less than Rico Blanco sings the track's chorus which goes: "Magdalena anong problema? Bakit 'di ka makawala sa kadena sa gabi-gabi ikaw ay nasa selda ng hanapbuhay mo ngayon".
The former Rivermaya frontman makes an appearance on the music video together with Jennylyn Mercado having the title role; and Alex Medina acting out the protagonist's point of view.

Gloc claims to be a fan of Freddie Aguilar's classic tune "Magdalena" and says it's the inspiration behind his own song.
"Sabi ko gusto ko gumawa ng kanta tungkol sa mga kababaihan natin na nasa ganitong larangan," explains the Pinoy entertainer who won Favorite Song and Favorite Collaboration for his phenomenal song "Sirena" at the 2013 MYX Music Awards.
Other songs which tackle human trafficking, prostitution or child abuse include "Roxanne" by The Police, "Smooth Operator" by Sade, and Gloc-9's idol, the late Francis M's "Nilamon ng Sistema".
More recent tracks are the Arctic Monkey's "When The Sun Goes Down", Lil Wayne's "Prostitute", Panic! At The Disco's "Build God, Then We'll Talk" and My Chemical Romance's "I Don't Love You".
