Paredes’ most prominent solo work, Handog ng Pilipino sa Mundo, became the anthem of the peaceful 1986 People Power Revolution that overthrew the regime of Ferdinand Marcos. It was participated in by 15 Filipino artists in April of that year, and its English version “A New and Better Way” was launched in Australia a few months after. In recognition of its significance, the lyrics of the song are embedded on a wall of the Our Lady of EDSA Shrine, the Roman Catholic chapel sanctifying the 1986 Revolution.[3]

  • Humming In My Universe: Random Takes on Everything
  • Between Blinks

In April 2019, Paredes apologized to the public after a sex video that showed him masturbating was leaked in social media by the person whom he was having an illicit video call with. This controversial scandal led to netizens across the Internet giving him nicknames such as “Jim Jakolero”, “Abdul Jakol”, and “Mang Sinalsal”, among many others.[5][6][7]

Paredes recently advised political influencer, activist, and social media personality Francis Baraan to ignore celebrity comedienne Ethel Booba on Twitter. The advice came after Paredes saw Baraan, a vocal Duterte critic, engaging Ethel Booba, a vocal pro-Duterte supporter, in a Twitter feud.[8]
