Composed by the group’s road manager Chris Cahilig and musician Urie Tesorio, "Hayop Sa Ganda" pays tribute to the incomparable pulchritude of Filipino transgender women.

“Hayop Sa Ganda” garnered thousands of views and received positive feedbacks from the gay community just days after a teaser video was shown on Youtube. The said teaser video presented slide images of the most gorgeous Filipino transgender women who made the country proud.

97.1 Barangay LS named this latest single from 1:43 as “The Most Wanted Song of the Week” and right away landing on the station’s weekly chart “The Big Ten.”  

“I have a good feeling about 1:43’s latest single. I am confident that it’s going to be my boy band’s next big hit, probably even surpassing the success of their definitive song ‘Sa Isang Sulyap Mo’ which became the Song of the Year in the 5th PMPC Star Awards For Music,” says manager Chris Cahilig.  

1:43 is composed of four talented, charming, and stylish lads namely, Anjo Resurreccion, Argee Golding, Gold Aquino, and Yuki Sakamoto, the main vocalist of the group. 

“We are optimistic that the song’s comic official music video featuring Kevin Balot and Negi will further boost its popularity,” related the group’s spokesperson Anjo. 

“It has funny references to Filipino pop cultures—from the Hagibis-inspired dance steps, a memorable biscuit television commercials, and the Snooky Serna-starring fantasy film ‘Blusing Itim’ in the 80s,” he adds.
