This week's MYX News Hot List, new episodes weekly at

We got a music-filled Hot List this week brought to you by Trace Gaynor!

We are counting down to the GRAMMYs, Kiana V drops a new collaboration track with Damn P, and Curtismith for a mental health campaign, Zack Tabudlo is back with his first release of the year, Tariser Records gets a new edition to their roster, and ALAMAT just released a new MV featuring BINI member Jhoanna!

2022 has been a great year for Clara Benin. Aside from getting featured on a Times Square billboard in New York ahead of the International Women’s Day, the folk darling received two nominations at the recently concluded 8th Wish Music Awards and collaborated with international artists such as British singer-songwriter Lowswimmer. On top of her achievements, Benin also dropped a song called "Affable Dork," which garnered rave reviews for "adopting a jazz-pop approach."

In "different…," Clara Benin takes a familiar musical route without losing the riveting earnestness of the subject. As expected, the FIlipino singer-songwriter has mastered the art of subtlety, and on "different," it’s here to stay: beautifully woven as if it’s an integral part of Benin’s identity as an artist. 

"We went for a more stripped-down instrumentation so we could really highlight the lyrics...I really wanted to play around with more organic sounds. Majority of the percussive sounds that you hear in this song are actually just Gabba tapping on random things around my studio." 


Benin opens 2023 with a soothing tune that revels in the idea of ‘what ifs' and how it often sparks curiosity and wonder. Her new single, "different…" draws inspiration from a rom-com classic, a common theme among her last few releases.
"I wrote this song after being inspired by the movie, When Harry Met Sally," Benin admits. "My song "different…" is about having a really good friendship with someone and wondering if you two could take that relationship somewhere different."

The track is produced by Francis Lorenzo and Gabba Santiago, with her dad Joey Benin playing fretless bass. Clara initially recorded the vocals and guitars of the song in her dad’s studio in December 2021, during the time when she visited her family in her hometown. The rest, as they say, is history.

Check out Clara Benin’s “different…” is on all digital music platforms via OFFMUTE.

The P-pop group, ALAMAT is back with a new music video for the track, "Maharani" off their EP, Pasulong. The word maharani translating to "queen," the song was produced and written by singer-songwriter, Thyro Alfaro. The group look to combine genres and Filipino sounds into a cohesive tune.

Fusing neo-soul with traditional southern Philippine music, it infuses a R&B and trap vibe using instruments like kanun, gamelan, gangsa, and byeon. The meaning behind the song looks to take a spin on modern romance, "contemporary musical masterpiece that blurs the line between archaic and current."

The video video taps BINI member, Jhoanna and Viva Records' Migo Valid for special appearances and leading ladies. Catch the members of ALAMAT show us how a queen should be treated.

We all had the song, "Nobody Like U" stuck in our heads after the Pixar film, Turning Red released last year. Since then, the track has been nominated for a Grammy, Best Song Written For Visual Media. Fil-Am singer, Grayson Villanueva and 4*Town member performed with the rest of the fictional boy-band group at the 20th Unforgettable Gala.

They shocked the crowd with their performance which was filled with influential Asian-Americans in the entertainment industry. In the recap video of the performance, not all original members of 4*Town were in attendance but the tracks, "1 True Love" and "Nobody Like U" turned into a stunning medley. Check out how hyped this live performance got the crowd going. We can all agree that we'd be the first in line if a tour happened.

It looks like everything is getting back up to speed with live events and award shows. This year, the 8th Wish Music Awards (WMAs) sets the example by kicking off the awards season! The event was held at Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City and hosted by Gretchen Ho, Christian Bautista, and directed by Paolo Valenciano. The night celebrated the return of live music that includes performances from: Moira, Ben&Ben, Zack Tabudlo, Flow G, and more!

Apart from the awards given that night, Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid was named KDR Icon of Musical Excellence for her tremendous contribution to OPM and its industry.

“Maraming maraming salamat po sa karangalang ito. [N]agpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon for giving me this wonderful talent,” she said in her speech. For the younger generation of Filipino artists, she has this as her words of advice: “Keep creating music. Kayo ang future ng OPM.”


The main attraction was of course knowing the winners in each of the categories up for grabs that night. SB19 took home the most number of awards, winning in three categories. The winners were determined by votes from a panel of judges which weighed 70% and from the public which weighed 30%.

Wish 107.5 donates Php100,000 to beneficiaries of major-category winners so a total of Php1.97 million will be handed out to Adarna Group Foundation, A Home For The Angels Crisis Home For Abandoned Babies Foundation, Autism Society Philippines, ChildHope Philippines, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Philippine Cancer Society, Resources For The Blind, Virlanie Foundation Inc., and Operation Smile Philippines Foundation, INC.

“It’s a big thing for us artists to share our music with each and everyone — and being able to help people in other aspects is way beyond. At a blink of an eye, we faced challenges that in previous years, would have seemed insurmountable. But when days seemed to have been engulfed in darkness, distress, and despair, we refused to give in. Instead, we all clung to a bright ray of hope — a hope that all will be all right in God’s time.”


Check out the full list of winners below and rewatch the awards show on the Wish 107.5 YouTube channel in February.

The acoustic tune was released last November and marked his return to solo music. It was written solely by him and definitely has the familiar KD Estrada sound. NYLON Manila shared that inspiration for "Days," 'It plays out like a modern-day harana, with KD sharing his admiration and love for that special someone who just makes his days better. “You’re the only girl I want in my life/ Every passing day with you feels alright/ You’re an angel who flew down from above/ I’m so lucky I call you my love,” he croons during the chorus.'

Many dream about becoming a Disney Princess and seeing themselves represented on screen. Recently, Filipina-American artist H.E.R. made that dream come true. The Bay area native is one of the music industry's most celebrated and accomplished singer-songwriters. Now, she can add another bullet to her resume as Disney's latest Belle. She expressed her excitement about what this role means not only for her but also for the community. “It's crazy! I can't believe it, honestly. I can't believe that I've come this far and that I have the impact that I have," H.E.R. told in an exclusive interview about being the first Afro-Filipino Disney princess in the new live-action hybrid 30th-celebration special of the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast.

Viewers can catch subtle elements of H.E.R.'s Filipino roots during the live-action musical. The apron worn in character includes a Philippine script called “Baybayin,” which spelled out "Belle" in the ancient dialect. Also, Belle's father, Maurice, was played by fellow Fil-Am actor Jon Jon Briones. Lastly, H.E.R. included the go-getter attitude exhibited by many Filipinos in her character.

The multi-hyphenate artist not only showcased her vocals during the production but also her acting and guitar talents. In a rendition of one of the most popular Disney tunes, "Beauty and the Beast," accompanied by the Beast himself, played by Josh Groban, she added her own flavor to the song by including a guitar solo. Overall, H.E.R. shares how happy she is with the outcome of the production, "I feel like I’ve always had that in me. I’m just really grateful, and I’m so happy on how it turned out."

H.E.R. also traveled to Manila for an ABS-CBN Global and MYX-hosted event that took place in late December at the Sheraton Manila Hotel. It was attended by partners, personalities from the music industry, and the country's leading entertainment press.

H.E.R. met with fellow artists from Star Music and local Filipino artists. This crossover between local and global artists is monumental as Filipinos continue to share their talents with the world.

“We’re very happy that H.E.R. is in town for the holidays. ABS-CBN Global and MYX are very excited about the projects we will work on together in the coming months.”


With 25 GRAMMY nominations and five wins to date, H.E.R. has had an incredible journey, punctuated with inspiring projects and accolades that have ascended her to superstar status. In 2021, her powerful song “Fight For You” from the Warner Bros. Pictures film Judas and the Black Messiah won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

You can now catch H.E.R. as Belle in Disney's reimagined and reinvented part-live action, part-animated "Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration" which is now available to stream only on Disney+.
