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.

Elha Nympha Asserts Confidence, Finesse, and Maturity in Her New Soulful Single, “Do It”

6:24:00 AM


Elha Nympha, is coming and assert more about confidence, finesse, and maturity on “Do It,” her comeback single under MCA Music Inc.

Now exploring a more sophisticated take on R&B, pop, and neo-soul, the former champion of The Voice Kids Season 2 reasserts confidence and sass in delivering a romantic confession that appeals beyond her particular demographic.

When she sings, “Come on over a little closer / Take me where I’ve never been,” she takes full control of the quiet storm brewing: her voice fluttering effortlessly over dreamy arrangements and soft keyboard tones, taking the spotlight with ease.

“Do It” is a suave R&B jam that tackles the beauty of taking bolder steps when it comes to love. Upon hearing the song for the first time, Elha got excited to record the material as it barely sounds like anything she’s recorded in the past. “I’m happy with where the direction of my music is going,” the 16-year-old star said in a statement. “Do It unravels a more vulnerable side of my artistry, and this is exactly the kind of music that I want to keep making—something that is young and current, but very much me.”

“Do It” has earned comparisons with the likes of SZA, Jhené Aiko, and H.E.R., embracing the fundamental agency of womanhood and young love in all its messiness and glory. While Elha is elated with the feedback that she’s been getting from her mentors and music listeners, she wants to forge a path of her own and make music that is distinctly a product of her own sense of style and adventurousness. The promising pop sensation admits, “As a fan, I can definitely see myself doing the same kind of music. But there’s more to my sound than being pigeonholed into a category. For now, I’m ready for where this journey would take me, musically. I’m definitely looking forward to creating something that is original and unique.”

Kyle Echarri Now A Singer-Songwriter of His Latest Single "I'm Serious"

9:51:00 PM

Is he really serious? Well, during the online media conference, Kyle Echarri showed and shared how serious he is about his craft. One proof that he is serious is that he's levelling up his singing career by not only singing but also crafting his own songs. 

A more mature Kyle Echarri was presented during the mediacon of his latest single release titled “I’m Serious,” which he wrote and produced under Star POP.

This project marks the young actor-singer’s first solo music project as a singer-songwriter and music producer. Label head Rox Santos served as the supervising producer of Kyle’s upcoming album which will include “I’m Serious.”

“I really wanted to let people feel who Kyle really is, so what I did was write all the songs in this album,” he teased.

“I’m Serious” is a straightforward love song in which a guy looks for a way to ease the girl’s worries by committing his faithful love only for her. It expresses deep affection for a special someone while also convincing her of his decent intentions.

Kyle said he wrote the song to address assumptions about him being a “chickboy.” “For me, the best thing to do now is just spread positivity and love to one another. When something negative was thrown at me, I guess I translated it into something positive. I just really wanted to spread love to everyone,” he explained.

Before the song’s official drop, 15 lucky fans who won Star POP’s contest on Twitter got first dibs on hearing the track via a virtual fan meet and listening party last Wednesday (September 9).

Kyle finished in the Top 6 of “The Voice Kids” season 2 in 2015. His most recent collaboration is with 16-year-old Singaporean talent Haven for the dreamy track “Imagine.” In 2018, the “Kadenang Ginto” breakout star released his hit song “Pangako,” which climbed to the top spot of iTunes PH’s Top 100 Songs Chart upon its release.

Trust real love and listen to Kyle’s new song, “I’m Serious” on various digital streaming platforms. For more details, follow StarPOP PH on Facebook ( and on Instagram (@starpopph). For updates, follow @abscbnpr on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or visit

Maris Racal's 'Not For Me' Shows An Introspective Side of Her

9:36:00 PM


This blog have been on tail on Maris Racal's stories, most especially during their Marnigo days, and we can say that her musical talent is interesting, whether she goes alone or with a partner. So, now we've got another story to share about Maris and this is about her newest single which is something to check out. She did create a name for herself and she has been one of the breakout young actresses of her generation. Maris Racal has successfully dabbled in writing her own songs and challenging industry expectations with her intimate and refreshing take on pop music. From penning the chart-topping confessional “Ikaw Lang Sapat Na” to collaborating with Rico Blanco on the city pop-influenced ditty “Abot Langit,” Racal is surprisingly an effective chronicler of love anthems for the modern age—a guitar-toting songstress known for balancing commercial appeal with artistic integrity. 

Bursting with youthful fervor and charismatic edge, Maris Racal’s latest single “Not For Me” stretches her introspective side of music-making to interesting places, while retaining the accessibility of her recent crossover hits. Her resounding confidence translates perfectly into the musical output, but it’s her conversational and matter-of-fact songwriting style that earns the stripes, revealing a degree of self-assuredness that comes with experience.

Inspired by Britpop acts such as Aqualung and folk-pop chanteuses like Lily Allen and Regina Spektor, Racal wrote “Not For Me” not so much for intriguing unconventionality, but as an outlet to express herself in a way that feels truthful and inherently raw. The driving piano chords and the soaring arrangements give her storytelling a more authentic spin, lending it an effortless breeziness while making sure it doesn’t lessen the emotional impact of the song.

With “Not For Me” putting a spotlight on her songwriting strengths, Maris Racal explores the complexities of romantic uncertainty with a surprisingly nuanced approach—unfiltered, no longer afraid of possibilities, and ready to own the moment.

“Not For Me” is out now on all digital platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines.

Kim Chiu Learns Her Lesson and Expresses through Her Single “BAWAL LUMABAS (THE CLASSROOM SONG)”

11:53:00 AM

It's interesting that Kim Chiu fires back with something interesting for her fans and to everyone with the criticisms thrown at her for her viral classroom analogy statement and this is through her newest feel-good single “Bawal Lumabas (The Classroom Song)” released under Star POP.

“Okay lang magkamali. I learned my lesson. Now, let's celebrate!" Kim said on what message the track hopes to send out.

Over the past week, the Kapamilya actress’ statement in which she tried to compare the terms of ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal to the rules in a classroom spawned various memes and even dance remixes.

Instead of sulking, however, she came up with this song, which admittedly pokes fun at her confusing statement in its chorus, but also embraces the blunder that she made as a learning experience in its entirety.
v It also promotes positivity by reminding listeners that when faced with a personal or social crisis, the only way to turn it around is to fully accept it, respect others’ opinions, and move forward as a better person who has learned his lesson.

A product of an accidental collaboration, the words, and music of “Bawal Lumabas (The Classroom Song)” was written by Kim, Adrian Crisanto, and Squammy Beats, with back-up vocals by Chir Cataran and vocal arrangement by ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo. Squammy Beats also mixed, mastered, and produced the song.

Kim’s new single follows “’Wag Kang Bumitaw,” an inspirational song that dropped a day after her birthday last April 19.

Don’t let your mistakes stop you from being a better version of yourself! Listen to Kim’s “Bawal Lumabas (The Classroom Song)” on ABS-CBN Star Music’s YouTube channel and Star Music’s Facebook page.

4:00:00 PM

Another song from the Asia's Nightiangle that will definitely capture your ears and your attention. Lani Misalucha just released her comeback single under Star Music titled “I Can’t Give Anymore,” after signing an exclusive two-year contract under the music label last December.

“I Can’t Give Anymore” is a modern ballad written by three writers—Filipino, American and Korean—and is the “Asia’s Nightingale’s” effort to reach a more global audience for her music.

“It’s not like the traditional, old school ballad songs that we know of which are usually heavy. The approach of this ballad is very forward, something fresh for Ms. Lani Misalucha,” ABS-CBN Music creative manager Jonathan Manalo explained.

Lani says that she’s thrilled to work again with Star Music, especially since her last project with the label was her “The Nightingale Returns” album in 2014 featuring well-loved OPM songs.

The powerhouse belter is also aware that branching out is inevitable, given that the music preference of people nowadays are evolving. “First of all, the type of music that I do somehow already has a specific target market. Now what we’re trying to do is reach out to the young people, the millennials through these efforts where we put it out [on digital platforms]. And then we’re also trying to do a song which the younger generation can relate to,” she said.

“I Can’t Give Anymore” will only be one of the all-English songs that will be rolled out one after the other until a 12-track album is complete. Aside from this, she is also set to breathe life into an upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye’s theme song and headline a concert after the album’s release.

Lani is just one of the versatile artists under ABS-CBN Music—a distinguished home to many of the best OPM music of today from the country’s leading media and entertainment company, ABS-CBN.

Ben&Ben’s Upcoming New Single and Music Videos

1:16:00 AM

Ben&Ben makes time fly so fast as their busy schedules makes them show on different venues for and event for the band. They are showing no signs of slowing down. In terms of consistency, the nine-piece outfit continues to break streaming records and dominate cultural conversation with releases that resonate with people from various walks of life.

Last January 2020 alone, the acclaimed folk-pop band won Wish FM’s Group of the Year and Urban Performance of the Year for their chart-topper “Pagtingin.” On top of this milestone, the band is currently at number one on Spotify Philippines Top 50, with their cover of “Make It With You.” With overwhelming support from music fans and industry peers, there is no doubt that Ben&Ben is simply defining the times that we live in : the band pours their energy in uplifting our fellow countrymen with their brand of accessible but well-crafted music. “It really boils down to the heart behind the song,” Miguel Benjamin, vocalist and guitarist points out. “When a song is written as a vessel to carry a message that is beyond ego or prideful intent, and simply mirrors the feelings, experiences and lessons that come from a higher place, then somehow it may find its way from the artist's soul to at least one other person's heart, and that is always enough. We fully know that it isn't up to us to produce these works out of our own will, but we are simply vessels for some greater message to fulfill itself through us.”

Striking a balance between relatability and raw honesty, the band has managed to push things forward with songs that not only capture an emotional spectrum, but also throb at the core moment of one’s personal experience.

To give back to the community responsible for contributing to the group’s unrelenting success, the award-winning ensemble is releasing two new music videos from the best-selling full-length album, Limasawa Street and a brand new single this month, under Sony Music Philippines. “We just really wanted to put out new material that reflects the blissful and bittersweet experiences we've been through over the past few months, both visually and sonically,” Miguel Benjamin stresses. “All these we want to do for our fans, in the hopes that they get through whatever rough patch they are in. It was a spur of the moment decision, really. We felt that we owe it to them, cos they have been pouring out so much love for us in the past few months.”

In the next few weeks, Ben&Ben is set to debut the music videos of their hit songs “Fall” and “Masyado Pang Maaga”—directed by filmmakers Raymond Dacones and Jorel Lising, respectively. According to Miguel, the treatment for “Fall” represents them “as a band and the themes and moods” their art stands for, while “Masyado Pang Maaga,” depicts “a real story that most of us have found ourselves in at one point of our lives.” The talented musician-performer adds, “Both of them aim to paint a visual universe that is uniquely Ben&Ben, with whatever sabaw ideas we've come up with so far.”

As finale for the string of releases this month, Ben&Ben will be dropping the new single “Sa Susunod Na Habangbuhay” very soon. The Sindikato-managed outfit debuted a performance of the highly anticipated tune at the Samsung Awesome Concert last February 5, 2020, which trended on Twitter Philippines for several hours. “We don't want to say much about it yet, but it's our most personal, painful song so far,” says Paolo, the other half of the Benjamin brothers. “Miguel wrote and sung it, and we're playing it in our live shows. We've heard that lots of videos of the live version are going around, and we find that super cool.”

Expect more surprises from Ben&Ben after February’s wave of releases. As Paolo puts it, “everything is outward at this point, and whatever outpour of energy we give out is not because we want the love to be given back, but because ours overflows.”

Sandiwa Releases Debut Single 'Gunita'

11:02:00 PM

OPM isn't dead, it's just evolving! Well, that's what I thought after attending the Press Conference and Launch Event of the Debut Single of SANDIWA.

SANDIWA, which means iisang diwa is bringing their music to the main stream under Ivory Music and Video and their debut single 'Gunita' is now out to different digital stores and music download platforms. According to them "... Kami ay pinag-isa para sa iisang layunin na ihatid ang tunay na 'Pag-ibig' gamit ang musika. Maghatid ng pag-asa at gawing obra ang mga luha na nagsilbing inspirasyon sa awitin ng ating puso."

This era's music is just evolving and SANDIWA is just one proof that OPM is moving. And also there are other rising bands that would definitely bring you good entertaining music.

SANDIWA'S Gunita, their debut single, comes with heart-wrenching lyrics and smooth rhythms. This song, that is released last March 22, 2019, will have you head-bobbing while reminiscing yesterday's beautiful love. It seems that SANDIWA is in for more sawi or hugot music to listen to. According to them they consider their music genre as cenimatic, that's perhaps due to love aches and hugot themes that is great for movies.

The band is composed of Samuel Mopal, Yeoj Rivera, Jeremiah Torda, Harold Tabuno and Alex Rale, SANDIWA is managed by Ms. Thea Pollisco, under the same umbrella as renowned OPM artist Gloc-9 and newest hiphop hitmaker Shanti Dope.

With that these two great artists are present during the Gunita Single Launch Event of SANDIWA last April 10, 2019, at Historia Boutique and Bar. Special guests include are Mr. Joey Ayala, Ms. Cookie Chua, Room for Cielo and Sons of NOA.
