Denise Julia & DENȲ debut sultry R&B jam 'don't matter'

10:31:00 PM

 

Two rising stars in the Filipino R&B scene, Denise Julia and DENȲ, have joined forces to release their latest single, "don't matter," under Sony Music Entertainment.

This collaboration marks the first time the two artists have worked together on a music project. Denise Julia revealed in a recent Instagram post that the idea of collaborating had been brewing for three years, back when they were both aspiring musicians trying to break into the industry.

The track, produced by J. Greg, Duaneinsane, and Denise Julia, and co-written by Denise Julia and DENȲ, features a smooth, soulful groove over which the two artists trade verses effortlessly.

With "don't matter," Denise Julia and DENȲ showcase their talent and chemistry, delivering a sultry and laid-back jam that is sure to resonate with fans of R&B music.

With Denise Julia’s powerhouse vocals blending perfectly with DENȲ’s sensual coos in the most exciting way possible, the song transforms into a charming, sing-along bop that’s centered on empowerment, freedom, and self-love—three virtues that triumph over the prospect of everything going wrong in a leap of faith.


 
The arrival of “don’t matter” comes off the heels of the duo’s recent accomplishments for their music releases: Denise Julia becoming the most streamed Filipino female artist for several months, thanks to the enormous success of her 2023 EP, Sweet Nothings (Chapter 1), and DENȲ reaching more than a million monthly listeners on Spotify on the strength of her acclaimed crossover album, LOVES7AGE.

A week ago, Denise Julia dropped the music video of her new single “Sugar n’ Spice.” Helmed by award-winning filmmaker Samantha Lee, the visuals depict sweet sapphic moments that a lot of adolescent queer women can relate to, regardless of category and experience. To date, the music video has racked up nearly four hundred thousand views on YouTube in less than a week, and has peaked within the top 10 of the video sharing platform’s ‘Trending for Music’ charts.

DENY on the other hand, has wrapped up 2023 with a record-breaking milestone. Her new album, LOVES7AGE was a hit among fans and critics and even yielded memorable hits such as “Alam Ko Na,” a collaboration with Just Hush and Third Flo’, and the Arthur Nery-featured “Sabik.”

Both OPM darlings have set their personal bests on creative and commercial terms while maintaining their individuality in an overly saturated and hyper-competitive musical landscape.

Denise Julia and DENȲ’s “don’t matter” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.

Anton Paras' "Can't Wait" pays homage to distant love

8:06:00 PM

 

Singer and musician Anton Paras, known for his songs and playing multiple instruments, brings us a new single titled "Can't Wait" under the label Alt G Records. In this song, he shows us that love and hope can stay strong even when we're apart.

In this heartfelt song, a man shares his feelings about being far apart from the person he loves. The song draws inspiration from the difficulties long-distance couples and families endure when their loved ones work abroad, like Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). Anton holds onto hope that, in the future, they will come together again and be whole.   

It's really hard to have a long distant relationship and for maintaining that spark is extra something. So, imagine that feeling and counting down the days of each contracts signed by the OFWs. 



“I decided to create ‘Can’t Wait’ because of our fellow countrymen working abroad. I wanted to make a song that they could relate to, something that could serve as an inspiration for what they are going through, to help them cope with homesickness. Even in long-distance relationships, I believe that at the right time, they will come together in the end,” shares Anton.

The single also showcases Anton’s versatility as an artist because of its different genre and vibe from his previous works. “This is a totally different genre from the ones I’m used to. If the outcome of this song comes out positive, I will create more songs like this one.”
Listen to Anton Paras’ latest single under Alt G Records, “Can’t Wait,” released last October 13 on digital platforms worldwide.

Raven & Angela Ken unite for 'Pangako', and Eternal Love Song"

11:14:00 PM


Angela Ken and Raven, two talented singer-songwriters, have joined forces to create a new song celebrating the happiness of feeling confident in a romantic relationship and desiring to build a future together with the person you cherish.

In a fittingly named song called "Pangako," two Filipino musicians express their sincere promises of dedication, resonating with a wide audience, from the young to the old, and everyone in between.

“It’s about being ready to love that special someone for a lifetime,” raven states. According to the rising bedroom pop artist, the song was created for two people in a committed relationship who share a strong bond, celebrating each other and supporting one another through life's challenges.

“I was inspired specifically by my Tito’s wedding when I wrote it,” he shares. “It’s my dream to make a song that goes well with an SDE video: a soundtrack that complements a couple’s montage, all while bringing the sugary feels in one go.”

The original version of “Pangako” was produced by raven with the assistance of his mentor, Rico Blanco. Acclaimed artists and producers Zild and Tim Marquez came into the picture for the duet version and added layers of newness and intricacy to the production. The result is a heartwarming ballad that brims with intricate harmonies and gorgeous instrumentation, painting a picture of romantic bliss, the youthful kind.

“it’s not the typical arrangement that you would normally hear in my songs,” Angela reflects. “And I guess that’s where the magic appears: the intricate details that the producers incorporate in the song and the way they preserved the inherent simplicity of what made it stand out, on a lyrical and emotional level. This collaboration is really for the books.”

Both raven and Angela Ken have gained significant attention at the height of the pandemic, sparking the curiosity of casual music fans with their brand of relatable songwriting and pop-infused melodies. Angela rose to prominence with 2021’s “Ako Naman Muna,” which racked up more than 40 million streams on Spotify alone, while raven’s steady rise in the music industry and incredible musical instincts captured the attention of Rico Blanco, which resulted in bagging a management deal with Balcony Entertainment and a record deal with Sony Music Entertainment.

raven and Angela Ken’s “Pangako” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.

Soaring Beyond the Clamor: Halle's Debut Single "Angel" Shines

10:23:00 PM



Renowned global sensation, Halle, has taken the music scene by storm with the highly anticipated release of her inaugural single, "Angel." Crafted under the masterful guidance of Theron "NeffU" Feemster, an illustrious name in the realm of music production, songwriting, and composition, boasting accolades such as the prestigious GRAMMY® Award, the track unfurls an immersive auditory experience. A fusion of cinematic allure and a pulsating R&B rhythm, adorned with sweeping orchestral arrangements, envelops the listener. Amidst this symphonic tapestry, Halle's vocal prowess soars to unprecedented heights, her mellifluous tones harmonizing with the poignant lyrics that resonate: "Heaven knows your wings can weigh you down, but angels make a way somehow."

Basking in the aftermath of fervent discussions sparked by The Little Mermaid, Halle's "Angel" extends an introspective narrative. It becomes a manifestation of Halle's unwavering dedication to embolden and elevate the aspirations of young women across the globe. Amidst the ebb and flow of life's challenges, the song's lyrical refrain reinforces the message of resilience, painting a vivid canvas where even in adversity, we find ourselves cushioned by the embrace of clouds. In this musical revelation, Halle not only showcases her musical prowess but also offers a heartfelt testament to her vision of empowerment. Listen to the anthemic track HERE.

The track arrives with an exquisite official video directed by Wendy Morgan (Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Lous And The Yakuza), watch HERE. “Angel” made its global premiere on BET Soul, BET Her, MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards.


 

“This song for me is so very special and near and dear to my heart,” says Halle. “With everything I’ve gone through the past 3-4 years, suddenly finding myself in this bubble of all these eyes and new opinions, it was easy for me to feel doubt in myself and who I was. This song for me was my climb out of those feelings, a mantra and promise to myself that the work I’m doing here on earth matters and that I matter. I wanted to be able to embrace and be proud of myself and who I am naturally through and through. I hope other brown and black girls and everyone in general feel embraced, respected, and inspired hearing the words of this song.”

Halle shines as a four-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter, show-stopping performer, and dynamic actress across film and television. She initially captivated audiences as one-half of the acclaimed R&B duo Chloe x Halle alongside her sister Chloe Bailey. The pair delivered two fan favorite full-length albums, including The Kids Are Alright [2018] and Ungodly Hour [2020]. The latter bowed in the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 and Top 3 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart in addition to yielding the platinum single “Do It.” Along the way, they notably gathered four GRAMMY® Award nominations, including “Best New Artist.” Beyond magazine covers and television performances, they ignited the stage during the On The Run II Tour co-headlined by Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Simultaneously, Halle landed a recurring role on the hit Grown-Ish as Skylar “Sky” Forster before breathing new life into Disney’s 2023 live-action blockbuster reimagining of The Little Mermaid. Next up, Halle stars in the remake of The Color Purple in the classic role of Young Nettie Harris. Produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, and Quincy Jones, it opens in theaters everywhere this fall.

Coincident or not I find an email invitation to her debut release. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend because of a reason. 

The female influencer, now star was Sony Music Entertainment and ShowBT Philippines Corp's latest P-Pop sensation with immense global potential, Mona Gonzales. It was indeed one event I feel sorry for not attending. Anyway, when I browsed her details on the net I was in awe because this girl is one of the anime theme song coverer that I liked. So, no wonder she has that immense global potential.  

If you listen to her covers you'll definitely love her voice. 

With more than 17 million followers on TikTok alone and an impressive portfolio of anime soundtracks that went viral, breakthrough artist Mona Gonzales ranks among the industry’s newest batch of megastar hopefuls.

The promising solo act marks her debut as a recording artist with “Always Remember,” an effervescent cut that champions the value of self-worth and preservation in an attempt to bravely face the world and conquer everything. Capturing the unabashedly colorful spirit of K-Pop and J-Pop with commanding confidence, Mona Gonzales aims to uplift listeners with her anthemic and captivating delivery—doing it like a seasoned pro.

“The way I personally describe it is something like a soft pop rock for me,” says the promising TikTok sensation turned P-Pop star. “The sound of electric guitar with a pop style beat is dominating through the whole song. The style is not really new, but the sound is unique in its own way. It’s a little different from the OPM that we’re used to. I think that makes it interesting.”

Produced by Oh Won Lee, an industry veteran who has helmed tracks by K-Pop icons Stray Kids, SHINee's Taemin, and Wanna One, and the country’s very own SB19, “Always Remember” is an inspirational track that pushes the envelope of modern pop production with breezy, summer hooks and a minimalist instrumentation. The end product is a mesmerizing take on P-Pop, one that is creatively boundless and flows with so much effortlessness.

As Mona Gonzales puts it, “Pinoy Pop Music doesn’t really have a certain and specific style and sound. Most of us new artists want to be unique. That’s true for me, but I want to add a new flavor and variety along with the existing Pinoy pop music right now. And with every Pinoy music artists, we will prove that P-POP can expand. And then people will talk about how the Pinoy pop music has evolved, its potential and where it can go.”

The release of the song comes with a vibrant music video that metaphorically follows Mona Gonzales’ journey as an artist with so much to explore and grow on. Shot in multiple locations that showcase the beautiful scenery of the Philippines, Mona Gonzales dances, sings, hops, and walks with the excitement of someone ready to navigate the world on her own terms.

Mona Gonzales’ “Always Remember” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment and ShowBT Philippines Corp. Watch the music video below.

Interesting, Ben&Ben teases fans with cryptic billboards across Metro Manila

11:07:00 AM

 

This is probably interesting. Cryptic billboards and posters around the Metro and its alluding to a new Ben&Ben release have recently appeared in strategic locations all over Metro Manila.


The material, which contains discarded film photos with texts exposing some personal thoughts, is said to be part of the lyrics of an upcoming Ben&Ben song to be released sometime next week.

A few days ago, the nine-piece Filipino collective tweeted what looks like a snippet of lyrics offering an intimate take on the painstaking process of letting go. Ben&Ben also dropped a performance video of “Stand By You,” featuring Indonesian superstar Pamungkas. The collaborative visuals, which were recorded earlier this month at SoundCheck Studio, have racked up more than 220,000 views as of press time.

Set to conquer the international stage with their first North American tour, the Paninindigan Kita music act will be performing in iconic and key venues across nine cities in the US and Canada—ahead of their send-off concert on September 3 at the CCP Open Grounds.

6:36:00 AM

 


Valentina Ploy breaks down walls between herself and listeners in “Berlin”, her second single with Warner Music Asia. The track will drop across all digital streaming platforms at midnight of 9 June 2022.

Coming back with yet another upbeat tune, Valentina Ploy has a way with radiating her sunshine personality even when singing to a lyrically sad song. We see people build walls as a coping mechanism while they are in relationships. As the track title suggests, ”Berlin” expresses the frustration of being with someone who puts up walls as high as The Berlin Wall. Co-written with Richard Craker, the upbeat pop tune takes listeners on a relatable journey in trying to break down and cross these walls built up by the person that they love.

“Berlin” will be accompanied by an entertaining music video starring Valentina Ploy herself, and renowned Thai actor, Benjamin Joseph Varney. Brace yourself for an unseen side to Valentina Ploy, as she proves to be a multi-dimensional artist, and shows her relatable quirky side to fans in this visual feast. Fans can also anticipate yet another endearing dance routine in the music video as Valentina Ploy encourages everyone to step out of their comfort zone and embrace every part of themselves.

Warner Music Asia announced on 21 April 2022 that it has formed a strategic alliance with Thailand’s premier independent record company What the Duck by signing Valentina Ploy, one of its most accomplished singer-songwriters.

This deal will see Warner Music Asia add the established Bangkok-based star to its roster of prominent singers, and will serve to support the What the Duck label in its work to elevate Valentina’s career to new heights. Warner Music will be harnessing the support of Warner Music Thailand to strengthen her domestic fan base, and utilizing the Group’s regional network to introduce her work to music lovers throughout Asia and beyond.
