Isang Gabi – Julie Anne San Jose & Rico Blanco
Upon its release, the track debuted at #1 on the iTunes Philippines all-genre chart. The track is produced and written by OPM rock icon Rico Blanco. It brings Julie into the shoes of the “third party” in someone else’s relationship, as it explores themes of forbidden love and longing for someone you can’t have. The music brings a unique mix of musical styles — featuring the Pinoy jukebox style of hugot, and putting some modern synth elements.
Paalam – Moira Dela Torre & Ben&Ben
The music video slyly continues the story of Dela Torre’s previous music video for “Patawad, Paalam,” about young lovers suddenly parting ways just when one was about to propose marriage. Paalam again stars JM de Guzman and Anna Luna, though the video this time focuses on the clear regret their characters felt over how their relationship ended.
Pati Pato (Parokya Remix) – Parokya Ni Edgar, Gloc-9, & Shanti Dope
The Pati Pato (Parokya Mix) brings the rest of Parokya Ni Edgar to join in on reimagining the original track. Now enhanced with with blasting and bold guitar and percussion backings, fans of the Parokya rock vibe and the fiery hot OPM collab keeps them on their toes with this new mix.
Sampaguita – Juan Karlos ft. Gloc-9
Juan Karlos has teamed up with rapper Gloc-9 to pay tribute to overseas Filipino workers (OFW) in Sampaguita. It opens with Gloc-9 rapping from the perspective of an OFW writing home to his wife. It then leads into an emotional chorus and closes out with a somber note on a familiar Filipino story.
Sana Tayo Na – Darren Espanto & Jayda
This song helped Jayda embracing her OPM roots. It was written over two decades ago by her dad and now it came full circle. Jayda and Darren shot the video at home and separate from each other as Darren was in Canada. Fans can even do a duet on TikTok to the song with the duo.

Ang Pinagmulan – IV of Spades, Directed by Raymond Dacones and Trina Razon
The music video features the band being submerged numerous times underwater. One Music PH offers its own perspective regarding this imagery. It could be a metaphor for the members drowning in the own thoughts, or drowning in the harsh opinions of other people, namely the band’s haters. However they’ve overcome it all to becoming a legendary band in OPM.
Dila – Zild, Directed by Daniel Aguilar
Dila is a song about those who can’t keep their mouth shut. According to Scout Magazine, the music video is a trippy decoupage masterpiece with magazine cut-outs of mouths and lips floating around Zild, who seems to be stuck in stop-motion and singing in cramped cupboards.
Kalawakan – Juan Karlos, Directed by Rod Tumbaga
In the music video, a traveler navigates through an explosion of colorful backdrops and timelines. Kalawakan is part of the band’s 10-track album Diwa.
Lakas – Coln ft. Dale Jairus, Directed By Vladimer Castañeto
The music video begins with a message to listen to the music through headphones or speaker for a better experience. It delivers with an action sequence that matches the tone of the song. When it cuts to the band’s live performance, it gives a classic rock experience.
Pahirapan – Mayonnaise ft. I Belong To The Zoo, Directed By Juancho Pancho
Pahirapan sings about a love that’s frustratingly hard at a time when the lovers have supposedly outgrown their immaturities. The singer pleads for his love to make sense, to stop fighting and to stop hurting him in a desperate cry which some of us know all too well. The video may not directly relate to the song, but it does have slick shots and a plot-twist you didn’t see coming.
