Comeback season is upon us. The top-tier boy group 1ST.ONE recently released the P- pop road to comeback song entitled "TURN UP." The well-rounded artists of this P-Pop group were all involved in the creative process of the track. Ace, the leader of the group, wrote the lyrics, and Max, one of the main vocalists, did the lyrics proofing. The other members co-wrote the rap parts. This is the follow-up track to their previous hit single, “SHOUT OUT,” which got off to a roaring start with its smash hit music video, getting 1 million views in only a few days.
The road to releasing their comeback single took a lot of hard work and long days in the studio. They give us a glimpse into rehearsal with the newly recent BTS release of their dance practice for the track. See them go through choreography and formations. For rehearsals, this already looks pretty polished and clean. Now time for us to also learn the dance.
"Turn Up" has a catchy dance vibe, but the message of positivity stays with you. "Everyone will go through failing in life, but if you continue to stand up and not give up, all your troubles will eventually turn upside down and turn up for the better. Failing only
happens when you give up. Standing up gives you infinite chances to succeed and overcome all your challenges in life,” Ace said.
The upbeat and colorful track is a new direction the group is exploring. “Our new song is brighter and more colorful in contrast to our previous tracks, which are dark and a bit aggressive. The track has a high-energy beat that keeps the tempo up throughout the day, so it can be played at any time of the day,” Jayson, the youngest member and one of the rappers, added.
With the combination of world-class Korean music production and creative Filipino artistry, 1st.ONE’s road to comeback is all the more memorable. TURN UP was produced by First One Entertainment and Warner Music Philippines.

P-pop is known for its boy bands, but girl group 4th Impact is looking to shake up the industry. The former X-Factor finalists recently released a new song about moving on and it’s definitely something that all can relate to. The four-member collective’s new single “Tapat Sa’yo” is inspired by their own personal break-up stories and focuses on having to go through pain to rebuild your sense of self from the ground up.
“Tapat Sa’yo” also features contributions from renowned K-Pop producer Lee Oh Won, the man behind some of the biggest hits from SHINee's Taemin, Stray Kids, TVXQ, Wanna One, and SB19. Check out the heartfelt ballad below.
OPM or Original Pilipino Music has been evolving the last few years with the rise of the P-pop genre. The genre has been making waves not only in the Philippines but globally as well and the Tugatog Filipino Music Festival at SM Mall of Asia Arena was the event to catch as it became the biggest stage to catch your favorite P-pop artists and groups.
17 acts took the stage with a lineup that included: 1st.One, Alamat, Bini, BGYO, Calista, Daydream, Dione, G22, LITZ, MNL48, P-Pop Generation, Press Hit Play, R-Rules, VXON, Yara, The Juans and Zack Tabudlo, offering over six hours of non-stop music collaboration and celebration. Organizing an event at this scale was no easy task and took an even larger team working behind the scenes to pull it off. ASCEI Chief Executive Officer Sarah Ruth Matias said, “The concert is all that we dreamt of..We were ecstatic with how everything went. Big props to our ever-hardworking team, especially our P-Pop and OPM artists who have been working so hard to put forth a great show.”
One of the highlights of the show were all the collaborations happening between groups, songs, and artists. Bini sang with Alamat for their hits “Na Na Na” and “K bye.” Boy group BGYO joined forces with MNL48 to the tunes of their hit singles “Sabay” and “High Tension.” While Litz joined Press Hit Play to perform their original song “Tell Me"; 1st.One and The Juans were dubbed as 1st.Juans for their collab performance of “Atin Ang Mundo.” The triple crossover among boy groups 1st.One, VXON, BGYO, and Alamat for “Shout Out,” “The Beast,” “The Baddest,” and “Kasmala” got the crowd excited.
The new crop of P-Pop and OPM talents also brought another layer of funk out of Pinoy hits—both in the present and from the past—including Maymay Entrata’s self-love anthem “Amakabogera” performed by P-Pop Generation, R-Rules, and Calista, the crowd favorite “Dati” as popularized by Quest, Sam Concepcion, and Tippy Dos Santos performed by Press Hit Play and Yara which arranged in a medley with Thyro and Yumi’s powerful collab “Triangulo” performed by Vxon and Daydream, and then Gloc-9’s immortal “Sumayaw Ka” powerfully rendered by G22 and Dione.
Another important aspect of the festival is of course the fans. They hold the power to essentially help make the event happen because of their enthusiasm and support to the respective artists and groups. Anj Heruela, Communications and Strategy Executive Director of ASCEI shares that the fans are crucial for an event like this, “Fans ask for a concert and we respond not just with a concert but a gathering where they will see something more from their idols as they also connect with other fans. Beyond bringing performances to life on a live stage, we want to bring together a whole community that fuels the love for OPM.”
OPM and P-pop music isn't going anywhere anytime soon, they're here to stay. The genres are only growing as more artists embrace their roots and fanbases grow across the globe. The possibilities are endless when it comes to what's next for Pinoy music and embraced by all.
