Kemrie Embarks On A Reckless Love Affair In New Single, Palms of Two Sinners

Rising singer-songwriter Kemrie finally releases her much anticipated single this year, “Palms of Two Sinners” under Universal Records.


The bright and summery track follows her 2021 single “Cruel House”. Over happy-sounding beats, and vibrant rhythms that keep pulsating to your senses, Kemrie is in most carefree and thrilled she’s ever sounded.

“Coz happy is the phone call / Every night, with my side eye / We're lovers in the rainfall / with my time, I'll bring you to whatever you please,” she sings. “Ooh, ooh, feel it go boom / Into you, I put my heart on the sleeve”

“Palms of Two Sinners” is a song about that free-spirited and assertive love affair that’s keeping two people feel alive. It is the refreshing tune perfect for someone who just wants to enjoy the sweet trip with another happy-go-lucky soul.

Kemrie loves to share her profound thoughts about the making of this remarkable single.

“I think of myself as innocent as a baby, polite, yet true to her feelings. I obey, but at the same time, I know what I want. But it hit different when I started having phone calls with someone I loved before, it builds up this idea of paradise, and your mind and your heart don’t correlate for the first time. I’m always living in my purest of thoughts, and I treasure them so much that when I have encountered this type of love for the first time, it felt ‘sinful’, I don’t know why I think of it that way, but other than my religion, it just... felt like it and eventually I had to find a way to stop it because the toxicity was getting too addicting, I was changing in an uncomfortable way, with just simple phone calls. When I put myself in different worlds, it’s always in the extremes.

Some days I wanna be so miserable and reckless so I live that, other days I wanna just relax and take my time, so I live that. But the experience with the person was both, and it created so much conflict within me. It was love stuck in between, and I didn’t know how to connect them, frankly it was just hinting me all this time that it was meant to fade, coz at the end of the day, you would always choose yourself. But I’m very grateful for the experience.”

“Palms of Two Sinners” now available on your favorite digital streaming platforms Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Deezer under Universal Records.

Gloc-9 Has A Confession To Make In His New Single, Kumpisal Featuring Skusta Clee

The one and only Makata Sa Pinas, Gloc-9 is releasing yet another single this May! This new song is called "Kumpisal", the Filipino rap icon’s third release for his Pilak album in celebration of his 25th anniversary in the Philippine music industry. Joining him in this string-fueled and vibrant collaboration is Skusta Clee, who’s undoubtedly one of the most popular rap artists on the OPM scene today.


Written and composed by Gloc-9 with musical arrangement, mixed, and mastered by Thyro Alfaro, "Kumpisal" looks into the dynamics of the Catholic sacrament of confession from the perspective of a confessee.

The lyrics? It’s classic Gloc-9 in his prime that you’ve always loved — bathed in cryptic word play and ethereally anthemic that even this mundane topic can transform into a poetic masterpiece. Gloc-9 said that he already wrote different songs on various topics, but releasing a song about religion and spirituality? Not yet. Thus, this song was carefully crafted and was made possible this year.

Joining the veteran hip-hop superstar in this latest endeavor is Skusta Clee and this the second time that these two rap idols have collaborated. Their first pairing was in Skusta Clee's single "Karma" wherein the Gloc-9 wrote the rap part. Its official music video released last November 2021 now has over 27 million views on YouTube and even reached #1 Trending For Music.

An official music video for “Kumpisal” is released alongside the single. The zany visual directed by Kirby Balagtas of YouMeUs MNL was shot inside a church with guest appearances by Shanti Dope, DJ Klumcee and Hellmerry. The exclusive premiere of the music video transpired during the intimate “Kumpisal” press conference inside a classy movie theater.

Prior to this release, Gloc-9 was able to drop singles “Paliwanag” with Yeng Constantino and the title “Pilak” as part of his 25th anniversary album. Check out "Kumpisal" on your favorite music streaming platforms.

SHINee's KEY, WEi, ALICE, and NCT Dream set to perform for Begin Again: KPop Edition

Four of the biggest South Korean acts are slated to visit Manila for “Begin Again: KPOP Edition” taking place on May 29, 2022, 5 PM at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.  Fans are sure to have a blast with NCT DREAM, SHINee’s KEY, WEi, and ALICE performing their latest hit songs on the Philippine stage.


NCT DREAM will be headlining the show, coming on the heels of their widely successful album “Glitch Mode.” Released last March, NCT DREAM has recently wrapped promotions after selling an impressive 2 million albums. This makes them a double million-seller for two consecutive years—a feat only a handful of groups have achieved.


Seemingly a magnet for historic achievements, NCT DREAM is set to tick another one on its checklist. Back in 2020, the group is the last to hold a live concert in the Philippines before COVID-19 lockdown. Now, they’ll be one of the first international artists to perform live again after two years. Needless to say, NCT DREAM is making dreams come true with their return to the country.


Performing alongside the group is labelmate KEY, lead dancer, and lead rapper of SHINee. In 2018, KEY made his solo debut with the single “Forever Yours,” which he quickly followed up with a full studio album titled “Face.” The album peaked at number 5 on Korea’s Gaon Chart and snagged a top 10 entry on the US World Albums Chart.


September last year, KEY released his first mini-album “Bad Love,” which earned him another top entry on the Gaon Chart. The titular track also enjoyed commercial and critical success with its Music Core win and The Ringer naming it the Best KPOP Song of 2021.


WEi, a six-member boy group from OUI Entertainment, is also joining in the fun. Though only debuting 2 years ago, the group is no stranger to the limelight. Members DAE HYEON, DONG HAN, YONG HA, YO HAN, SEOK HWA, and JUN SEO have different charms, and as a fourth-generation youth icon, WEi is loved by domestic and international fans.


In March of this year, the group released their fourth mini-album “Love Pt.1: First Love” with “Too Bad” as the main title. The album sold more than 100,000 copies and placed at number five on Korea’s Gaon Chart.


Last but definitely not the least is ALICE, consisting of members EJ, Do-A, Chaejeong, Yeonjae, Yukyung, Sohee, and Karin. In 2018, the group was named the Best Rookie Group at the 24th Korean Entertainment Arts Awards. Fresh off the May 4 release of their latest single “Power of Love,” these fearsome femmes are ready to wow on the stage. 


The 2-hour concert marks the first live KPOP show in the country since the COVID-19 lockdown. Don’t miss this historic event and come see talented artists on one stage.


Pre-selling of tickets begins on May 17, 2022 (12NN) via https://www.cdmentertainment.ph

Gary Valenciano’s Pwede Pang Mangarap Is A Powerful Anthem About Hope and Encouragement

Gary Valenciano has unveiled a brand new song “Pwede Pang Mangarap”, released under Universal Records. It’s the type of buoyant, morale-boosting track that transports listeners to a much-needed ray of hope as we dare to rise above the seemingly dream-crushing effects of the pandemic.

The pandemic may be making its way out of our lives slowly but its aftereffect is still felt by many, especially amongst those who have been striving to stay afloat in the world of the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises. Some have had to stay closed for two years, while others have just had to shut down indefinitely. Thus, this uplifting track from Mr. Pure Energy came to life.

“Pwede Pang Mangarap” was made possible with the cooperation of The Association of the Filipino Franchisers Inc. (AFFI) and it’s the official TVC of BUYanihan, a known collective of brands, retailers, and MSMEs that aims to empower the Filipino entrepreneurs and help them highlight their world-class products. (WATCH THE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO HERE)

“We’ve all heard of the light at the end of the tunnel, but I believe more in the fact that when our hope is fueled by our faith, God can become our light no matter where in the tunnel we may find ourselves in. Yes…I strongly encourage you to start dreaming once again,” says Mr. Gary V. about this powerfully crafted song.

Truly, life can’t always be easy, we all fall short but what’s important is that we don’t lose hope and become stronger versions of ourselves. Always keep your dreams alive. Stream “Pwede Pang Mangarap” on your favorite digital streaming platforms today.
