Clinton Kane is one of the most vulnerable artists and his new song stays consistent to his sound. The Filipino artist just dropped a new track titled “Panic Attack,” and the song is inspired by the anxiety related episodes that many individuals live with.
According to Kane, he wrote the song a year ago and his views on panic attacks have drastically changed. He shared his thoughts on the song on an Instagram post caption: “panic attacks are something ive struggled with for the longest time but its literally the only reason i’m here writing songs. a year has gone since i wrote this and i feel completely different about it now. i weirdly see panic attacks in a more positive light where whenever it happens, its as if the world is telling me to take a breather and stop stressing over things i can’t control.”

Bianca Bustamante considers to make history (or HERstory) and the Filipina racer just celebrated another groundbreaking accomplishment. Last week, the 18-year-old athlete announced that she is the first ever female racer to join the McLaren Driver Development Program. The England-based team sees potential in Bustamante and is confident they can help her reach her F1 dreams.
Bustamante shared her feelings on the revelation in a press statement: “This is such an unreal moment in my career, to sign with McLaren and ART Grand Prix is way beyond anything I could’ve ever imagined growing up racing karts in the Philippines. I still have a hard time seeing my name next to McLaren without getting emotional, as the history and heritage linked to this team leaves me truly speechless.”
The McLaren Driver Development Program has ties with 20% of Formula 1 racers, including giving a similar opportunity to stars Lewis Hamilton and Lando Norris at the start of their careers. Good luck and congratulations to Bianca Bustamente!

Sonically, the single features a more futuristic EDM and trap influenced vibe and showcases a more edgy side from the artist. “The song is edgier and more provocative, and it's a true reflection of my own personal style and creative vision,” Cullen said. “Overall, I feel excited and fulfilled to be taking this journey of growth and discovery.”
Josh also added: “First of all, it’s all me. While I love working with my bandmates and creating music as a group, this solo project has given me the chance to showcase my true self. I make sure that it aligns with the way I want it to be. I take pride in the fact that I'm the driving force behind my own creative vision. I have the trait of being a control freak. When I have an idea, I want it to be executed exactly as I envisioned it, to the point where I almost feel like I'm ‘meddling’ with the different teams that work with me. But I consider myself fortunate and grateful, because they were extremely understanding and supportive of my artistic endeavors."
