Adarna dubbed Chiu’s surprise single the “GCQ (general community quarantine) theme song.”

“This song brings so much positivity and laughter in my household. The best quarantine soundtrack!” Adarna wrote in the caption.

Last month, Adarna praised Chiu, her fellow Cebuana, for quickly bouncing back after she was bullied online over her confusing statement while pleading for ABS-CBN to be allowed to return on air. 

Chiu described it as "one of the lowest points" of her life, before turning it into a positive, releasing a song which became a viral hit.

Adarna earlier told her followers to emulate Chiu.

“‘Yan si Kim Chiu, guys. ‘Yan ang dapat sundin na mindset. ‘Yan ang mindset of a true champion. Tingnan niyo gaano kabilis nag-bounce back,” Adarna said in Cebuano.
