There’s definitely no shortage in OPM music these days, with artists dropping tracks one after the other that give out a sense of comfort, empathy, inspiration, and hope to Filipinos.
If you’re in the lookout for new songs and music videos to stream, here are some new and forthcoming releases from ABS-CBN Music to check out:
1. “Miss You in the Moonlight” by Jake Zyrus
A song which delves on one’s regrets towards a failed relationship because of personal shortcomings, Jake Zyrus’ new single will surely stir powerful emotions from listeners. Composed by Gabriel Tagadtad and produced by ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo, the song marks Jake experimenting on the jazz-pop genre.
“I’m most comfortable with this new single because I just discovered the genre that my voice is most comfortable with—jazz-pop. Also since I was young I’ve always wanted to sing old songs,” explained Jake.
2. “She” by SAB
Young singer-songwriter SAB’s debut single under Star Music “She,” inspired by her personal coming-of-age story, was released early this month to encouraging responses. The track scored inclusions in Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong as well as a placement in a Spotify Japan editorial playlist, much to SAB’s gratitude.
“My heart goes out to all the people who have been listening, streaming and watching ‘She’. It brings a smile to my face every time I think about it. It truly means the world to me,” gushed SAB.
