Zack Tabudlo finished off 2022 as Spotify’s Top Streaming Domestic Artist in the Philippines. The singer/songwriter, who we can only assume is looking to experience similar success in 2023, just dropped his first song of the year! “AKIN KA” shows a more fun and experimental side from the hitmaker, who credits classic funk and RnB classics as his inspiration. For example, he listed James Brown as one of his influencers for the new track. While the single may show a more experimental side from the artist, the track still has elements of his original sound.
The music video takes you back to the 70s in this fun performance that includes flared pants, furry coats, and synchronized dances. He brings up the idea of a Filipino Soul Train-inspired variety show. He’s for sure has another hit on his hands that makes you want to dance along.
He added, “The certain elements within—like the horns section, keys, drums, ambient noise, and backup vocals—helped build the entire song. It’s also a new experience for me, as the song mimics the 70s era and how soul music was made and written during those times.”
