Indeed, it is now the time for the youth to be heard. Being open to discussion, to voice out the oppressed and marginalized, to help others, and to call the government out if needed.
One of things that youths are passionate about is their love for music which is why it is understandable how the American singer Taylor Swift’s songs “Only the Young” and “The Man” are now on the chart list of Spotify Philippines.
“Only the young” is a song about politics and a way of encouraging youth to open their eyes and see what power they can hold. This song was released through Swift’s documentary on Netflix titled “Miss Americana” last January 31. According to the American singer, this is about her perspective on the 2018 midterm election in the United States of America.
As of May 10, 2022, this song re-enter the Philippines Spotify Daily Chart [+146] with tons of streams according to Philippine Concert Facebook page.
