In addition, the official movie theme song of “The Breakup Playlist” is in the Top 5 in the singles chart. Sang by Geronimo and Pascual, “Paano Ba Ang Magmahal” was composed by Yeng Constantino and Jonathan Manalo.

"The Breakup Playlist" follows Trixie (Geronimo), a law student and aspiring singer who falls in love with Gino (Pascual), a musician looking to form a rock band.

Their relationship turns sour, however, and Trixie not only leaves the band but also Gino, who appears to have been pushing her away.

Directed by director Dan Villegas, "The Breakup Playlist" marks the first team-up of Geronimo and Pascual on the big screen. It is now on its third week in cinemas in the Philippines.
