After debuting on the Weekly Top 20 on 24 March 2018, the Wonggoys’ exuberantly positive song “Wa’y ‘Blema” has finally topped the charts this week. This Bisaya song knocked off Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd’s Black Panther track Pray for Me from the number one spot as it falls back to number 3. Iggy Azalea and rapper Quavo park themselves at number 2 as they creep behind the Wong Brothers’ reign this week.
Meanwhile, Fonzy’s Cool2gether is this week’s knocker song which means that this local artist will finally enter Y101’s Weekly Top 20 charts for the first time by next week. Also somewhere else in the chart, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Brooks, and Halsey debut. Check out facts about this week’s hits below.

#1 “Wa’y ‘Blema” by Wonggoys
- Following the release of their second album “High Hello”, the Wonggoys, debuted their first ever Bisaya song “Way Blema”. Cattski Espina produced the track and the Wong Brothers themselves (Billy, Gabe and Kyle) composed and arranged it. Gabe and Kyle said they wrote the song because they want to spread positivity/good vibes around a city that’s so chaotic where people constantly get stuck in traffic. The Wonggoys are aiming to put a smile on everyone’s face and to remind us to relax, that “it’s a beautiful life kung mu chill lang unta”.
