Inigo Pascual and Wish 107.5 just dropped a live performance of Inigo's track Neverland from his 2021 Options album and I can't get enough of this performance. Personally, this is one of my favorite tracks off the album. Although the album is categorized under "Pop" this track is very R&B forward and I think Inigo's voice sits perfectly within that realm.
Inigo has been busy filming his new Fox series Monarch set to release at the end of the month. Knowing that the series is based on a Country music family it will be interesting to see if Inigo lends his vocal chops to the series. For now, let's enjoy this great performance from this multi-hyphenate artist.

ABOUT INIGO PASCUAL:
Inigo Pascual is a young, international pop superstar from the Philippines with over 4M+ social media followers. His 2016 release “Dahil Sa’yo,” a song he penned himself, topped Billboard PH charts at #1 for 3 months and remains as the most dominant OPM (original pilipino music) release in history. A tireless worker in constant demand from his millions of fans, Inigo turned his attention toward the international market in 2019, collaborating with Australian-Chinese vlogger and musician, Wengie, Singaporean rapper Akasha, GRAMMY-nominated reggae artist J Boog as well as UK/US popular boybands, New Rules and PRETTYMUCH. He worked with GRAMMY award-winning producers from Manila to Los Angeles, CA on a solo album, giving birth to his lead single, “Options” and island pop hit “Catching Feelings.” Inigo became a familiar name in media and international radio while doing promo rounds in Los Angeles, New York, and even taking the stage during halftime at an NBA game. Radio airplay was followed by appearances in San Francisco, London, Toronto, Tokyo, and Sydney on popular stations like IHeartRadio in the US, SBS Pop Radio in Australia and BBC Radio in the UK. The “Catching Feelings” (Bimwala Remix) charted on Top 5 new songs on stations like Island 98.5 and HI93 in Hawaii. He has recently been part of 88Rising's exclusive online festival, "Asia Rising Forever" and performed "Catching Feelings" on Jo Koy's Netflix special, "In His Elements", with the track racing to the top of Shazam Charts in various cities globally.
After album singles “Should Be Me,” and “Lost” dropped in 2020, Inigo joined a band of international artists assembled by Tarsier Records for “RISE” - a cross-cultural unity track featuring Eric Bellinger (USA), Sam Concepcion (PH), Moophs (PH), Zee Avi (Malaysia), and Vince Nantes (USA), putting him in front of a new category of listeners and proving that no pandemic can stop his international track. To close off his 2020 streak, Inigo releases “Always” - a dancehall-pop tune that sprouted with “RISE” co-collaborators, Vince Nantes, Sam Concepcion and Moophs. He plans to release his “Options” album in 2021.
Crossover star and Sun Life brand ambassador Inigo Pascual has dropped the music video of his latest single called “Araw Mo.”
Filled with positivity and delightful possibilities, “Araw Mo” positions itself as an anthem for Filipinos working hard to achieve their dreams as it reminds them of their power to change their destiny. This message is captured in the music video through a myriad of life stories interspersed between dreamscapes that portray the importance of worthy partnerships – be it a couple sealing their love for one another, an overseas Filipino worker coming “Home for Good” to her family, or finding a Partner for Life in business, health, and prosperity. “Ito ang araw mo to choose your brighter path,” highlights Inigo. “And with the support of the right partner, you can definitely make your dreams come true.”
The release of his new music video comes amid Inigo’s preparation for his big Hollywood break, where he will be starring in Fox’s upcoming musical drama Monarch alongside Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon and country music legend Trace Adkins. Inigo will get to showcase his musical skills as he portrays Ace Grayson who dreams of making it big in the music industry.
“This big break is the fulfillment of a dream I’ve had since I was kid. It reflects my very own ‘Araw Mo’ journey, and I am thankful to all those who supported me along the way,” Inigo muses. “I hope the song inspires more Filipinos to pursue their goals.”
Stream “Araw Mo” on @sunlifeph YouTube channel. Also take on Inigo’s dance challenge on the @sunlifeph TikTok account for a chance to win exciting prizes.
Inigo Pascual is so talented in his own right. He sings, dances, acts, and writes to name a few of his many talents. So what else is Inigo aiming for in his young, but already accomplished career? Right after Bretman Rock's fabulous cover in July, Inigo takes a stab at it and sits with NYLON Manila to chat music and fashion. Inigo talks about his journey as an artist, what's keeping him inspired, and how he pays it forward to others. If you think you know Inigo Pascual, there's more to know!
Inigo's rise started with the OPM hit, "Dahil Sa'yo" back in 2016, but he's been grinding towards his dream long before then. The talkative, hugger shares the struggles of finding his purpose and the beginnings of his career when he was still Stateside. His go-getter personality and contagious energy allowed him to try different things like sports, but music never left him. Music became his safety net or something he kept coming back to. Inigo honed his energy towards performing and realized early on his niche and confidence was in theater arts.
Finding your calling is only half the story, how to get to life's grand plan is another undertaking. As an artist starting out, it was starting to look up and stars were aligning for Inigo until things fell through from not being able to audition for X Factor to passing on a boyband project. However, things always happen for a reason but that doesn't mean you can't be sad about it. Inigo recalls, “after that didn’t work out, I would cry myself every night when I was in Tennessee, I just felt like I didn’t belong. I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing.” Eventually he found himself back in the Philippines except this time as an actor, but like he said music wasn't going anywhere. While music was already a part of his life, his source of happiness had to take a back seat to carve space for himself in showbiz.
His musical opportunities grew after the release of "Dahil Sa'yo" which led him to make his first album. Now you see his growth in his 2021 album, "Options" and the latest track "Finding Neverland." He was performing onstage, writing his own music just like he always hoped. “With music…It was always so fun to do it. I didn’t feel like I was scared to do it. I was always in that space of experimenting; in terms of what I can do with my music.” Music has helped him grow up and really find himself.
So how has he been dealing with the pandemic? Creating music of course, but also loads of video calls with friends and family. Inigo shares the journey of creating "Options." “With this album, I mean, we all went through so much. It was two years in the making...but we didn’t stop." Don't stop, won't stop, am I right? Lots of patience went into making this album, but Inigo also realizes he was in a fortunate position to complete the project. To that, he's opened himself up to collaborating with other artists and simply sharing space or advice. “For them to kind of choose me to be able to say, you know, advice to them, it kind of made me feel like okay, I’m doing something right."
It's all a reality now for Inigo. He's performed at the Staples Center for Filipino heritage night, his songs are catching waves on KISS FM, and he's collaborating with some of the best in the game. Would he ever thought it'd happen? Sure, but it still blows this 23-year-old's mind that it did. “It’s a crazy feeling to be honest, to be able to do these things like right now." Inigo takes and enjoys the ride of life. Sky's the limit for him, but Inigo keeps his next project on the down low and leaves readers with, "it's always good to challenge yourself."

The album now available on all streaming platforms has 12 tracks with hits like Danger, Catching Feelings, Should Be Me, and Always. However to accompany the release of the album is a music video to the latest single, Neverland.
According to Rappler.com, "Inigo is set to “bring Original Pilipino Music (OPM) to the global stage with a refined collection of songs that he recorded with multiple producers and songwriters from Manila to California in a span of two years.” The album revolves around the concept of self-discovery as he explores the options in his musical journey. The leading single, Neverland was produced by Bernard "Harv" Harvey. He's also worked with artists such as Justin Bieber, Summer Walker, Omarion, Kandi Burruss, Gucci Mane and Eminem. He's described the track as “allure of staying in the unknown” rather than deciding to stay in an “unconventional relationship.”
