Since she is currently single, (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked about her hugot playlist.

Angelica chose songs of Sam Smith, Nina, and Mario to include in her playlist but Passenge's "Let Her Go" is her favorite go-to hugot song.


Angelica explained, "Tingin ko yung let her go Kasi yung lyrics niya is: You only know you love her when you let her go?

"Sa tingin ko, ang mga tao talaga nakikita nila yung worth ng tao kapag wala na sa kanila.

"Ganun ang feeling ko e, parang kung kelan too late na, 'tsaka nila nari-realize na, 'A, sayang kasi mahal na mahal niya ako and then ni-let go ko siya...

"Late na talaga yung realizations, 'pag wala na."

She continued, "Wala, sabi nga ni nanay Gio Medina, kapag nagmamahal ka dapat binibigay mo na lahat.

"So in the end, sumuko ka man or natapos man yung relasyon, at least wala kang pagsisisihan kasi binigay mo na."
