Charlie Puth is back with a new album! While the songwriter is known for being one of the biggest hitmakers in the world, “Charlie” follows a different approach than his previous projects. The self-titled release is appropriately the “See You Again” singer’s most personal, vulnerable, and honest LP yet. The 12-track project sonically is inspired by 80s synth pop and follows a break-up theme for the majority of its songs.
Charlie Puth sat down with MYX exclusively and in our interview, he talks about his love for the Philippines, compliments Filipinos and our natural vocal talents, writing one of his biggest hits after performing in Manila, his new album, and much more! Check out his sit-down with VJ Samm below!

Lapillus is from the same company as hit girl group Momoland. Their debut single music video for "Hit Ya" is currently trending on YouTube and has garnered over half a million views in less than 24 hours. VJ Ai of MYX got to sit down with the freshly debuted group on an episode of MYXclusive. Get to know Lapillus even more and check it out below.
LITZ has announced their official debut slated for March this year. The initial debut date was set for February, but an announcement on their social platforms with a 30-second teaser has seemed to cement a March debut. The pre-debut release of their rendition of James Reid's "NATATARANTA" has created a great buzz on social and was a great start to build their fanbase. The teaser they recently released looks like we will continue to see the group's glitz, glam, and strong dance forward visuals and artistry.
If you missed it, LITZ was recently on an episode of MYXclusive with VJ Ai that trended on Twitter. They were joined by Esseca, and Jom & Crakky from ALLMO$T. Check out the interview below and see how this jam-packed MYXclusive went.

MYX chats with Moonfall actor, Kelly Yu about her experience shooting her first disaster film, portraying the character Michelle, and if she prefers outer space or Earth. Check out some of the highlights below from the interview and be sure to catch Moonfall, out now in theaters!
Ever wonder what would happen if the Moon got too close to Earth? In the latest film, Moonfall starring Halle Berry, John Bradley, and Patrick Wilson are faced with saving the planet in this apocalyptic, disaster themed movie. With a mysterious force knocking the Moon off its orbit around Earth, it creates a new path headed directly into Earth. Can these astronauts and conspiracy theorist save the Earth from what lurks beyond?
Kelly and her costars bonded while filming.
Although she is a veteran actor in China, this was her first movie in America and first disaster film. Her character, Michelle spent a lot of time looking after Halle Barry’s character’s son Jimmy, played by newcomer Zayn Maloney. She shared that both her and fellow screen partner, Charlie Plummer gave advice to Zayn about their experiences in the industry so far.
If you didn't know, Kelly is also a singer and had her music featured in projects she's involved in.
Kelly shared that for Moonfall, she's releasing a couple of songs for the film in the Asian market. She's excited to share a track that was specifically made for the movie once there's a release date for the film in China.
With the film taking place between space and Earth, we asked Kelly if she wanted to venture into outer space.
Because her character Michelle didn't venture out into space, Kelly would want to experience space. She would love to say that she's gone to space and saw what the unknown is like. For the film, the cast was placed on harnesses for certain scenes and Kelly shared that was the closest feeling of "floating" around in space.
Kelly sings us one of her favorite go-to karaoke songs!
She gave us two of her favorite songs to sing along to during a karaoke session. The first being the Eagles' "Hotel California," which is definitely a classic. The other song being one of her own. Kelly even graced us by singing her song in Mandarin. It's a first for us here on MYX and we totally loved it!
We look forward to seeing Kelly in more projects and hearing more music! Catch Kelly Yu and the rest of the cast of Moonfall in theaters now!

keshi released a new track in October called, "SOMEBODY" a year after the one year anniversary of his last project, always. The song is the first single and music video from his upcoming, debut studio album. After the track released, he took the stage at 88 Rising's Head in the Clouds Festival in Los Angeles earlier this month with NIKI to perform “right here” and eaJ of Day 6 to perform “pillows” to over 30,000 fans.
"SOMEBODY," co-produced with Eli Rizk, brings out keshi's edgier side, but balances it with a perfect equilibrium between lo-fi and pop sound with a touch of 832. You can expect to hear keshi's harmonies along with his artistry. “With "SOMEBODY" and the upcoming album as a whole, I felt like it was time to shift the tone to something more well rounded. It all exudes a newfound confidence that I think fans will be refreshed to hear and see in all the new videos,” keshi tells us.
Along with releasing his latest single, keshi teamed up with Mindset and Dive Studios for the keshi x Mindset podcast collection. The platform is dedicated to normalizing the conversation of human experiences through authentic stories. keshi talks about everything from who he is as Casey Luong and his upbringing, what he did before music, and answers some fan questions. He's featured in 8 episodes so time to grab some headphones and listen away!
When keshi broke into the scene with his 2018 project, The Reaper, it earned him early recognition for shaping the lo-fi discourse that’s flanking pop music. VICE said, “the rawness that underpins keshi’s sound keeps fans coming back for more.” The Houston, Texas native gained popularity in the lofi-hip hop/study beats community and continues to have success in that genre. He wrote, produced, engineered and played all the instrumentation on his EP projects (Skeletons (2019), Bandaids (2020), and Always (2020)), which describes the cycle of a relationship.
Since then, keshi has been gaining more traction in mainstream like appearing on the 88rising-curated Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: The Album for his song “War With Heaven," YSL's special guest at their Venice show and he's currently tour with LANY. keshi wants to be remembered as an artist and he's on his way there. “I think the biggest goal for me right now is to create a record that will outlast me."
Get to know him as an artist and jump into his mindset in this recent MYXclusive with VJ Samm where they chat about songwriting, his album, and more!
