Rising young stars, Francine Diaz and Seth Fedelin enter the next steps to their careers with this team up for Ace Banzuelo's newest music video for the song, "Muli." This marks one of their first official projects as a tandem pair, which is known by fans as FranSeth. The video hit 1 million views on its first day after the release on July 3rd. The long time friendship and connection the two actors have shined through in their portrayal of lovers. Their chemistry is off the charts that matches the tone of the track.

Ace Banzuelo's pop ballad shows the ups and downs of a relationship from the good moments all the way up to its falling out. The break-up track hits the heartstrings with its hard-hitting lyrics of longing, regret, and hope. The aesthetic of the video with its darker gradients and muted colors portrays the sadness of the melody and the lyrics. Francine and Seth's acting skills were top notch making audience believe and feel the hurt of a break-up.

There will be more FranSeth coming soon as they will be staring in a new ABS-CBN and Dreamscape Entertainment series, Dirty Linen with Janine Guiterrez and Zanjoe Marudo. "Muli" gives us a taste of the potential of this tandem and we're excited to see more!

Tarsier Records artists KaixAaron and Maki link up for their first ever collaboration on “Thinkin’ Bout Your Smile.” The feel good R&B single expresses the joy and nostalgia of being in love and has lyrics both in Tagalog and English. This track is full of good vibes and is definitely a road trip worthy record! The artists discussed their song below.

"The story behind our release is while Kai and I were about to create a song in my bedroom studio in LA back in 2021, we decided to come up with a feel good type of song which we called “Thinkin’ Bout Your Smile.” After a while, with the help of the talented producer Felipe Buencamino, he helped us create this wonderful track. The last thing we did was ask if we can have someone feature in the song and here is one of talented people Kai and I know in Tarsier, Maki, he agreed to collaborate with us and it was approved by Tarsier Records so when everything was finally finished, the song had always given me the feeling of joy every time I listen to it. It is an adorable song for lovers, and we have had this song in our folder for a long time now. I think this song will fit the season for this release." - Aaron

"It’s been a long process with this song. Many obstacles made us feel so distant to the creation of it; however it allowed us to stay more unified and be able to strive for this masterpiece. This song contains the feeling of being with someone for a while kind of vibe, having the feeling of knowing both people went through so much together but at the end of it all, and through all of it they could say “I love you” with no remorse. The reason for releasing this song now is that since summer has arrived, we wanted to introduce a fun vibe to have our audience feel more joyful and positive during the season of sunshine." - Kai

"A lot of us tend to think a lot. The world is in chaos right now but somehow, being able to have the thought of someone special to you is happy and smiling–it's everything you ever need to try and be more optimistic." - Maki

Arthur Miguel is back with a new song! The Philippines-based singer/songwriter’s newest release ‘Huli’ sounds almost tailor-made for marriage receptions. The slow jam is a serenade track written from the perspective of a man reciting his wedding vows. This ballad will definitely have you in your feels!

According to a press release from Arthur’s label, the Tagalog track revolves around what makes relationships extraordinary and magical. Additionally, the song is meant to remind everyone that there will be a person who is willing to endure the ups and downs in life together with them. If you haven’t found that special somebody yet, one day you will find someone that supports you fully and gives you the love you deserve.

Listen to ‘Huli’ below.

Ben&Ben is back with new release Langyang Pag-ibig, which in English translates to "That's just love." The track is an angsty rock anthem that lyrically wades into the messiness of a bad breakup. The song depicts the struggle and anger of someone trying to get their life back together.

“It's the song where we flexed our musicality the most,” says the acclaimed band. “It's three songs in one song, but it still sounds like one song.” This latest track was produced by Ben&Ben and Jean Paul Verona, mixed by Sam Marquez and Verona, and mastered by Leon Zervos.  

“We’ve always wanted to make a song with this vibe, and we think the songwriting in itself begged for it,” shares the chart-topping folk-pop group in a statement. “It helped that Jean Paul and Sam were very familiar with the vibe we were going for and that helped create the general mood and sound we wanted for Langyang Pag-ibig.” 

You can now stream Langyang Pag-ibig here and catch the lyric video below.
