Let’s face it – In the Philippines, only a few OPM artists were able to record a song that can set a very sexy move. Some tried, but most of them failed.
Just last weekend, I stumbled upon the newest music video of Kenyo featuring Hi-C. It is the first time that I heard of their newest song entitled ‘Simulan na Natin’. The video is undeniably sexy and I bet the fans of Hi-C envy MCoy while watching it. As a fan of Orange and Lemons (Hanggang Kailan, Heaven Knows, Magkayakap sa Dilim) and Dice & K9 (Itsumo, Shake, Bestfriends, Rendevouz), I am glad to know that MCoy Fundales and Hi-C collaborated for this wonderful project. The music video was tastefully done and the song can simply make anyone feel sexy ones they hear it 😛
Last month, I saw the music video of our very own kababayan Apl.de.Ap with the song ‘Take Me to the Philippines”. Days after, I read some blog entries about his project called Jeepney Music and he collaborated with the Department of Tourism which made a lot of Filipinos, especially his fans happy and proud to be a Filipino.
While chatting with my friend who is a fan of Pinoy indie bands, she gave me the link to MTV Emerge. I found out that they have a contest going on for unsigned Filipino artists to showcase their talents. The smiled when I heard that the project is a MTV, Jeepney Music, and Department of Tourism collaboration. Seven grand winners will be chosen and will sign a one year contract with Jeepney Music which will be handled by Apl de Ap himself! He will guide them in terms of digital distribution of songs and marketing strategies.
Just last month, Princess Velasco’s debut album ‘Addicted to Acoustic’ received its gold record award. I am really happy because another dream of hers turns into reality. She’s a real talented woman and I am quite sure you will agree with me once you see her perform onstage.
Anyway, her first music video for the song Single Ladies is finally up!
