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!

Singer-songwriter Zack Tabudlo takes a different tone with his latest single, "Anghel" by emphasizing a more blues and soul sound with the track. "Anghel" continues to take on the theme of love and relationships where Zack took inspiration from a quote by Thomas Aquinas, "Love is willing the good of the other." The soulful song is sure to inspire its listeners and is now available to stream!

The song is a reminder that those of us who love others, regardless of what our relationships are with them, sometimes need to self-reassurance. According to Zack, the song "came out of nowhere" but still follows the basis of his style. The track was produced and recorded by himself, which really shows off his versatility.

Zack shared his thoughts on the meaning behind the track, “It’s about someone who doesn’t realize their worth and [my song makes] them realize [that] they deserve more than they think.” In writing this surprise for his many devoted listeners, he turns his attention this time to something that is real for many people in this uncertain age, which is self-doubt. The lyrics urge the beloved to be better than their wounds and see themselves as the angelic figure they could really be.

Jonn Walter, former frontman of the band Down by 18, is now embarking on a solo career. The Leyte-native vocalist has just released a new single entitled “Ikaw,” one of the many songs he wrote during the pandemic, and is now ready to release in 2022.

He detailed the song in a statement via press release below:

“The song is about a very interesting individual that captured my heart. It was a very special time in my life — so in short, that song is a real-life experience of mine. Hoping she’s out there and she’ll hear it once it's out. I owe it to her to do good in what I do. I pray that she is well too. I want her to know that I constantly think of her. What we shared was special enough that I wrote this song.”

Watch the music video for “Ikaw” below.

The SB19 member who's been venturing as a solo artist under the name, FELIP has released his latest single, "Bulan." The follow up track is accompanied by a music video that highlights Filipino deities and mythology of pre-colonial times.

The lyrics play off this theme by mentioning figures like the moon goddess Haliya, serpent-like dragon Bakunawa, and FELIP as Bulan. The disclaimer on the video explains the reason behind choosing this theme. It's a “creative interpretation of our nation’s collective memory of Filipino ancient deities. Definitive resources for this aspect of our culture have been destroyed during the colonial period, hence, the goal for this release is to encourage the youth to dig deep, discuss, and to keep this aspect of our memory alive for generations to come."

The release of “Bulan” was initially targeted for mid-May but was postponed in light of the recent presidential elections happening during that time. This was a decision by FELIP and his team as the song's goal is to “encourage discussions around our ancient culture and revisit this aspect of our collective memory as Filipinos.” This is his second solo single after the debut of "Palayo."

Girl group, G22 returns not only with a new aesthetic but also a new sound for their second single, "Babalik." The track looks to highlight the female alphas of the world and show just how powerful ladies can be just like themselves.

This sound is so different from anything they've done previously as they stepped out of their comfort zone. G22 can do it all from being fierce with the debut track, "BANG!" to also showcasing their softer side with "Babalik." It's currently featured on Spotify's playlists P-Pop On The Rise and New Music Friday Philippines! Also, check out the released lyric video!

To prepare for his debut album, Manila Killa releases a brand new track with Lights called, "Dusk." The new song is also the name of the album that's ready to drop this summer. The collaboration between the two artists brings out a project with multitudes of flow and feelings, pushing the sound of electronic music.

The track colors vivid imagery, which brings the lyrics to life that matches Manila Killa's refined sound design. "Dusk" delivers an ideal scenario of being the soundtrack played while escaping the city to something much quieter.

Manila Killa shares, "'Dusk' is a song that I always imagined to be played on the road leaving the city heading towards the desert. I made sure to encapsulate that feeling through my production, and reaching out to Lights to lay down the vocals was the missing piece to complete the song. This one's special to me because I looked up to Lights and listened to her well before I began my music production journey, so it feels like a full circle moment to have her on the song. I'm hoping people feel a type of yearning emotion when listening to it as that's what I've felt throughout the journey of creating this song over the last year."
