Marian, a well-known figure on TikTok renowned for her dance challenges, was deemed a fitting recipient for the challenge by the band.

“E si Ate Marian, sumasayaw siya gumagawa din ng steps. E nagkataon na naging kaibigan nga namin siya nag-mula no’ng ‘Rewind’ kaya naisip namin na ‘i-challenge nga natin si Ate. E pumayag tapos ang bilis lang gawa na agad,” Paolo said.

Ben&Ben contributed their hit song “Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay” as one of the featured tracks in the successful 2023 Metro Manila Film Festival movie “Rewind,” where Marian co-stars alongside her husband, Dingdong Dantes.

“Ang nangyari lang, nabalik sa amin ‘yung challenge kasi sabi niya gawin din namin. Ayon po, nagpa-practice pa lang kami,” he added.
