Unique Salonga, who fronted IV of Spades before quitting, dropped his debut song as a solo artist, "Midnight Sky," within minutes of his former band releasing their new single, "In My Prison."
IV of Spades was the first to premiere a brand new music video this Friday, featuring eerie, creepy cult visuals and a killer groove.
Half an hour later, it was Salonga's turn to hit YouTube.
His "Midnight Sky" black-and-white video stars him dramatically singing alone inside a room with an unkempt bed in the middle. Fitting, perhaps, for a melodramatic track about tortured pining for a lover's hand.
It was just a few months ago when Salonga announced his shock decision to leave IV of Spades, which maintained that they will go on as a trio.
He didn't explain his reasons, but fans later found out that it was to go solo as he signed a contract with Kean Cipriano's new record label, OC Records.
