5 Reasons Why You Should Watch Playback Music Festival Presents featuring A1 and O-Town





What’s up, fanboys and fangirls?! Get ready for the ultimate throwback event you wouldn’t want to miss for the world! It’s A1 and O-Town performing back-to-back at the Mall of Asia Arena on November 9th, Saturday, for a one-night show only.

Thanks to the team effort of Super Awesome Productions and All Access Production -- reminiscing the glory days of the ‘90s is made more exciting than ever!

To make you all giddy, we’ve rounded up 5 amazing reasons why you should watch the Greatest Hits LIVE featuring A1 and O-Town.

1. You get to wear your favorite 90’s outfit



Pulling off a great outfit for a concert can be quite a tedious task so we’re giving you outfit ideas on what to wear on November 9th. Woot!

  • You can never go wrong with a graphic tee! Just pair it with a black leather jacket, cool accessories, flat shoes, a platform heels, or sneakers.
  • If you want to look like you came out of a Spice Girls’ video, try pairing bralettes and high-waisted midi skirts, a perfect mix of high-waisted jeans and a crop top, or perhaps vintage tees or a denim skirt. (It’s all about mix and match 😉)
  • If you’re someone who likes to wear an all-black ensemble, then why not go for a retro look. Try a black dress and a bomber jacket, then a black combat boots.
  • For the guys, we recommend you wear bandanas, a windbreaker, perhaps a cargo pants, and baggy jeans (But it’s best if you watch one of the music videos so you can get a gist of other outfit ideas)
2.    Sing your favorite A1 and O-Town Jams LIVE in one night!




For the 90s fans out there, this event may be one of the best things that have ever happened this year. There are probably dozens of songs of the past which happens to be your ex’s theme song or your current beau’s jam – be it from A1’s “Everytime” if you’re dedicating this one for your TOTGA (The One That Got Away) or O-Town’s “All Or Nothing” for that one person who can’t love you back as much as you love him/her. (Ouch)

But it’s not about listening to Spotify and cassette tapes anymore! We all get to see these amazing guys share the same stage to swoon their fans, and who knows, might invite some lucky fans on stage to join them in a performance (wink wink)

3.    Meet an army of adorable A1 and O-Town fans



A1 Philippines, A1 Reunited PH, and the army of loyal O-Town fans, I know that you’re all giddy -- now that the concert is happening in just a few weeks. You’ve probably saved money for merch or perhaps your flight ticket to Manila, and can’t wait to meet all your long-time friends and virtual friends in your street team! I know some of these awesome admins and I can’t wait to see them soon as well. (Sending virtual hug if you’re reading this)

Make sure to capture all the great memories on November 9th – it’s sure is gonna be a night to remember!

4.   The Perfect Weekend to Escape Reality



Adulting sucks, right? However, if your idea of a perfect weekend would be seeing with your first love (mentions Ben Adams for example) – then better get those tickets already because you don’t know the next time they’re coming back.

It’s also not just any other weekend, but a nostalgic one worth celebrating for.

5.    You only get to pay P5,900 ($60) for an SVIP ticket with meet and greet



Yup, you’re read it right. You only need to shed out P5,900 to watch and meet the boys in person! It will also be the first time O-Town is coming to Manila, so that’s something to look forward to!

If you haven’t got your tickets yet, you still have time tho! Check out the following prices below:

Platinum A (VIP floor-Seated): P4500
Platinum B (VIP-Seated) P4000
Lower box Gold: P3000
Lower box Regular: P2500

Homegrown talents glowed up TELUS International Philippines' Town Hall

Last October 6, TELUS International Philippines held its annual Town Hall.  Pearly shells, palm trees, and cabanas splashed with neon lights were the setting of the said event. With the theme, “Neon Island,” TIP treated its team members and long-time partners to a fun-filled and exciting celebration at the Globe Circuit Grounds in Makati City.




Gathering the largest event crowd in TELUS International Philippines’ history, over 7,500 team members took a break from work to embrace the company’s fun and diverse work culture and celebrate their hard work. TELUS International Philippines is one of the leading BPO and digital solutions companies in the country with more than 16,000 team members across Metro Manila.


“TELUS International Philippines has always valued work-life balance as an important aspect of building a healthy work environment. Town Hall is one of the biggest venues where our team members, long-time partners, and leaders get together and enjoy the company’s fun culture,” said TELUS International Director for Brand, Marketing and Culture, Carlos Giammattei.

Giammattei added, “Engagement activities such as the annual Town Hall are one of the many reasons why our team members choose to stay with the company.”

The music-filled night was hosted by Luis Manzano and Alex Diaz, and was graced by OPM artists including Morisette, Kamikazee, UltraCombo, Ben & Ben, Parokya ni Edgar, Patty Tiu, Mark Thompson, and A-Team.























Team members expressed their individuality and creativity, arriving in outfits that reflected their own sense of fashion, style, and pride, in line with the event’s theme. There were also dozens of side activities, from mystery rooms, arcade games, and games prepared by the organization’s special interest groups. Attendees were given free treats from different booths that served a wide variety of food, drinks, and games.


TELUS International Philippines is widely present in Metro Manila, with sites in Quezon City (Vertis North and Araneta-Cubao), Pasig (Ortigas Center), Makati (McKinley Exchange), and Taguig (McKinley West and Market! Market!).



Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer performs series of shows in Ayala Malls

It was indeed the year of the comeback as lead vocals of one of 90’s favorite alternative groups Sixpence None the Richer, Leigh Nash returns to the Philippines for a series of intimate acoustic shows in several branches of Ayala Malls in Manila, which started from September 27 until October 6.


She was the voice behind classic tracks such as “Kiss Me”, “There She Goes”, and “Don’t Dream It’s Over” to name a few. The last time she was here was during the Playback Music Festival in 2018, where she performed alongside Stephen Speaks, Vertical Horizon, and BLUE.

Hailing from Texas, Leigh Nash’s influence in country music and her refreshingly authentic voice is evident. Let’s admit it - it was everyone’s jam in the ’90s, and you’ll know it’s her song from the moment you hear that 5-second guitar intro of “Kiss Me” to the eclectic cover song of “There She Goes”, and these are just some of the reasons why she skyrocketed as one of the most loved artists in the ’90s.

Also, their group received two Grammy Award nominations and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for "Kiss Me"















We're fortunate to watch the Alabang show last October 5th, Saturday, which happens to be the second to the last show, thanks to Ayala Malls and Super Awesome Productions.

It was an exciting weekend for some fans, as they get to sing along some of their favorite tracks, and meet Leigh Nash in person. Together with her touring guitarist and back-up singer Bradley Meinerding, Nash took the stage, all smiles in her black dress, and to a rapturous applause, playing her first track “Don’t Dream It’s Over” followed by “There She Goes”, “Breath”, “Name”, and “Melody Of You”.

The new song “God Gave Me Horses” is also instantly likable with its great melody and Nash’s resplendent vocals. The crowd also swooned as she performed “Need To Be Next To You” which received significant radio airplay in 2000.

She ended her set with the nostalgic “Kiss Me” and made everyone in the venue sing along with her.

Kudos to the whole team of Super Awesome Productions and Ayala Malls for a successful event.

Jay Park Intimate Sexy4Eva Concert in Manila

It was an intimate and sexy night during Jay Park's #Sexy4Eva Concert in Manila.


Hundreds of JWalkerz (Jay Park fandom name) gathered at New Frontier Theatre last Sunday, September 22, and shouted their hearts out welcoming Jay Park on his first-ever concert in Manila.




Jay Park is the biggest Korean American artist, producer, rapper, and CEO of independent hiphop labels AOMG and H1ghr Music.

The #Sexy4Eva concert party kicked off with DJ Wegun dropping the beat of AOMG artists songs such as "TMI", "Simon Dominic", "Hangang", and "Comfortable". 





He made sure that JWalkerz will "Forget About Tomorrow" as he showcased his versatility on his performances. 

During the concert, he performed "V", "Me Like Yuh", "Soju", "Iffy", "Know Your Name", "Worldwide", "K-town", and "Yacht". It was followed by the crowd's favorite "Joah", "My Last""Drive", and "All I Wanna Do".



As expected from a K-concert, JWalkerz prepared a "Galaxy Light" project. They all turn on their phone flashlight emanating different colors : yellow, red and blue while Jay Park sang "Dank". It was beautiful that Jay Park was awed with it. He even requested for it to be lit up for the #Sexy4Eva song.

Fans excitement intensified the moment Jay Park took off his clothes for "MOMMAE". Add to that the heat flowed to everyone when he says  "Manila You're so Sexy" sexily.

Manila was also lucky to have Haon, South Korean rapper under H1ghr Music and High School rapper 2 winner, to perform in Manila with Jay Park. His charm while rapping to "Barcode", "BWA+DNA" and "Water" stole women's hearts.




Jay Park was clearly touched at the support of Philippine JWalkerz. He said "It's not like a fully crowded but you sound like a fully crowded." So when it was the final part of the concert Jay Park ask the fans from the second floor to move to the VIP and Premium section because he wants to see JWalkerz up close.

Everyone partied until the end with "All Day (Flex)", "Aint No Party Like AOMG Party", "Who You" and "Nothing On You".

Haon and Jay Park said "Maraming Salamat" before they bid farewell to their Filipino fans.

Truefaith pays to tribute to 80s Pinoy showbiz in new music video

OPM pop-rock stalwarts Truefaith are back with a new music video…with an old-time twist. 




Their latest single “Uwian Na,”off their latest album “sen+imen+al,” was launched last year as the band was preparing for its 25 th anniversary concert held at the Music Museum. A year later the songsmiths of smooth pop are set to launch its accompanying music video. 

Helmed by long-time music video director and visual effects specialist Adrian Arcega, “Uwian Na” takes the viewer a trip down memory lane, paying tribute to the original Queen of Philippine Showbiz Talk Shows Inday Badiday as well as 80s Philippine TV entertainment. 



The music video is also the first in the country to utilize face-swapping technology, also known “deepfaking,” sweeping the internet today. Deepfaking is the process where an actor’s face is superimposed onto another person using artificial intelligence-based technology. 

Also appearing in the video are iconic actors Ricky Davao, Rey ‘PJ’ Abellana, and Yayo Aguila. 

Truefaith will hold a launch party for the “Uwian Na” music video on Friday, October 4 at 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub at El Pueblo, Ortigas. Show starts at 9:30pm. For aficionados of physical copies of music, “sen+imen+al” CDs will be available at the gate. 

Entrance to the party is free. Opening the show is cyberwave band Stereodeal.

Carly Rae Jepsen is Underrated but it's Fine

Surely, the general public can recall who sang "Call Me Maybe" and "I Really Like You". Two songs that basically got us earworms for AGES.

To some, it has become the basis of why they "stan" Carly Rae Jepsen. But for an unlucky few, it has become annoying to be reminded of the songs, which were heavily overplayed on radio stations. It has become a joke that whenever Carly Rae announces a concert, there's going to be someone who will post "I bet she just has Call Me Maybe on loop, if not countless versions of the song for 2 hours". Unfortunately, there are a lot of things this unlucky few are missing out when it comes to the Canadian singer who deserves more attention but is currently beautifully underrated.

Call Me Maybe x I Really Like You

In addition, these two songs are sure-fire hits from Carly. Call Me Maybe alone was certified Diamond in the US; which means it reached the 10 million mark in terms of units sold. It was even nominated for TWO Grammys. On another note, "I Really Like You" sounds very reminiscent to "Call Me Maybe". According to Mike Nied of Idolator, Carly's label was hungry for another hit, hence they used the same formula. Justin Bieber even did the same move of lip-syncing to the song in a YouTube video to further promote it featuring friends, Ariana Grande, CL of 2NE1, and more.  

Failing to reach the same success of the previous hit, the GP simply saw Carly as a pop star who "attempts" to create just catchy songs. Hence making them less interested in who she is as an artist. But this whole experience contributed to something bigger for Carly Rae.

From Chart-topping pop star to indie pop icon
Indeed, her 2nd album EMOTION has been considered as holy as a bible by critics and fans. It now belongs to that set of albums you listen to which are of quality but not commercially successful. Could it be because of the lead single "I Really Like You"? Sam Murphy of Junkee believes people would rather hear "Runaway With Me" than "Call Me Maybe", and possibly its follow-up "I Really Like You". Emotion explores Carly Rae's ability to write better songs with 80s infused sounds. If you listen to the album, you will see how different the rest of the songs are compared to its lead single (when lead singles are supposed to give listeners an overview of one's sound in a certain album/era). If only "Run Away With Me" was chosen as the lead single, and if it received the same amount of promo the lead single got, the general public might have seen her more seriously. And maybe they could've embraced her better. However, there seems to be nothing wrong with Carly's underrated success. She may not be charting as well as before BUT she has achieved this cult success and it solidified her being an icon in indie pop.

Dedicated is Carly at her genuine sound
After two albums, Carly finally found her real sound without having to force any certain sound to sell music. We believe she learned from her past singles that people would appreciate her music this way. We really cannot see "Call Me Maybe" and "I Really Like You" the same way now after realizing that without those songs, Carly will not reach this certain concrete sound featured on Dedicated; so we're not completely negative towards those moments in Carly's career. Simply put, Dedicated shows who Carly Rae truly is without having to create another chart-topping pop song. She can save pop music just by doing what she does best- which is transporting us to discos with her music.


Photo credit: Carly Rae Jepsen Instagram

With all that said, Carly's cult success is something interesting. The music industry today isn't all about chart success and a huge fan base. In the case of Carly Rae, she has successfully escaped being called a "flop". Instead, her loyal fanbase and listeners embraced her music. At least we know now that what we hear from Carly is her in solid form. She simply deserves more listeners without having to force something in their ears because people will come to her no matter what; especially if they need pop music. She is here to deliver quality music no matter how underrated she is. Most of the time people would say "she deserves to be more famous!" or "she needs to be more successful!". For Carly Rae Jepsen, being underrated is beautiful and better enjoyed.

See her perform her hits at The Dedicated Tour in Manila on October 23rd at the New Frontier Theater. Limited VIP Standing tickets are available at ticketnet.com.ph. Presented by Wilbros Live.

Yeo unveils new single, By Myself featuring Charlie Lim


Melbourne-based musician and producer Yeo shares his new single ‘By Myself’ in collaboration with Singapore’s Charlie Lim. 




Written and produced by Yeo and featuring Charlie Lim, ‘By Myself’ is an R&Btinged duet with mellow bass-driven tones and a gentle bouncing rhythm. It sets a warm scene for two characters reaching out to each other after finding themselves in a dark place.


“‘By Myself’ is about striving to be a better person. I’ve made big mistakes and learnt some big lessons. Now I’m doing my best to stop judging people so quickly and show them empathy instead ” – Yeo

Yeo and Charlie Lim first met years ago in Melbourne when Charlie joined Yeo’s band. After discovering a mutual love for D’Angelo and pushing boundaries, a strong friendship was forged, though Charlie would soon move back to Singapore to pursue his solo career. After almost a decade, the pair reconnected to co-produce Charlie’s latest and most adventurous album CHECK-HOOK. This reignited the great chemistry between them, and ‘By Myself’ was conceived. Yeo and Charlie shared the stage once again at Mosaic Music Festival with Charlie performing guest vocals during Yeo’s set and the pair recently debuted their duo live show this year at Music For A Cause at OCBC Arena Park, Singapore.

"Yeo is a dear friend and we go way back. I've always considered Yeo as one of the best songwriters and producers to come out of Australia, and for me to get to sing on his new single is a real treat" – Charlie Lim ‘By Myself’ is the third single lifted from Yeo’s forthcoming album Recovery Channel. The album highlights Yeo’s genre-bending production as he continues to push the dimensions of contemporary R&B, pop and electronic music and will include the new single alongside 'The Comments' and 'Restless'.

Recovery Channel is about Yeo’s experience as a person of colour struggling to find confidence, a place to belong, and proof of his own humanity. The record explores themes of conflict, love, and the rarity of hope.


For a first listen of ‘By Myself’ and Yeo’s forthcoming album, Yeo invites you to the Recovery Channel Album Preview Party on October 18 at Melba Spiegeltent. Yeo Recovery Channel Album Preview Party Friday 18 October – Melba Spiegeltent

Boyz II Men set to return in Manila on December 12


Four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning group Boyz II Men is heading back to Asia and performing in Manila, returning from a U.S. tour and residency in Las Vegas at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The group, consisting of founding members, Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris, will bring a lively show, including fan-favorite songs like, I’ll Make Love to You, Motownphilly, End of the Road and more, along with new show elements on stage. 



“We’re so excited to be going back to Manila and bringing the Boyz II Men show to the fans who always greet us with so much warmth and we look forward to showing them some of the new skills that we’re bringing to the stage.”

 For their Manila concert, the legendary R&B trio will be performing on December 12 at Resort World Manila’s Newport Performing Arts Theater.

Boyz II Men hold the distinction of being the most commercially successful R&B group of all time with three No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, selling over 64 million albums worldwide. They had engraved three of the longest-running No. 1 pop singles in history -- End of the Road, spending thirteen full weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100, which historically concluded the decades-old record held by Elvis Presley, subsequently followed by I’ll Make Love To You with a 14-week reign. The third No. 1 is One Sweet Day with Mariah Carey which ruled the Billboard chart for a total of sixteen weeks, an all-time record they had held until August of this year.
 
In September 2019, Boyz II Men commemorate the 25th year anniversary of the record that cemented their status as music royalty, the 12x platinum, triple Grammy Award-winning album II. Although the Boyz have consistently toured across the United States and around the globe, performing a mix of their latest tracks and treasured classics, venues continue to sell out to the rim. The reason is abundantly clear – for the past two decades, Boyz II Men have given fans a rich catalogue of hits filled with soothing harmonies and unparalleled vocal excellence.
 
More accomplishments lead the iconic a capella group to pop culture ubiquity, along with 3 Billboard Music Awards, 9 American Music Awards, 9 Soul Train Awards, a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, and in 2012, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
 
Boyz II Men’s other chart-topping hits are On Bended Knee, Water Runs Dry, A Song For Mama, and 4 Seasons of Loneliness, among others.
 
Boyz II Men Live in Manila 2019 is presented by Ovation Productions on its 40th Year Promoting the Biggest Names in Live Entertainment, in cooperation with TAP Edge: The Home of Live Action Sports. Tickets available starting Friday, October 4 at 10am via www.ovation.phwww.ticketworld.com.ph and all TicketWorld outlets. For inquiries, call (02)891-9999 or (02)532-8883. 

A Cozy Thursday Night with Jeremy Zucker

During a busy Thursday in Makati, MCA Music has organized an intimate fan session with rising star Jeremy Zucker. The singer behind Spotify hit "Come Thru" gave cozy and relaxing vibes to lucky fans after having a long day in school, and after experiencing their daily struggles.



A lucky few were invited to participate in the said event through a Twitter competition held by MCA Music wherein fans were asked to share their favorite Jeremy Zucker songs. The organizers hand-picked a few superfans to experience the best intimate show with their favorite singer.

Jeremy performed a total of three songs including "Oh, Mexico", "All The Kids Are Depressed", and "Come Through". In between the songs, Jeremy chit-chatted with the fans. There was also a portion in the session where fans were able to tell Jeremy their messages of gratitude and admiration for the singer.





It was short and sweet but the highlight of the event would be the surprise plaque presentation for Jeremy's 4x platinum single "Come Thru" in the Philippines. Fans were also able to get a group picture with their favorite US singer.

Even after the singer's appearance at Karpos Live, which happened 2 nights before this secret session, Jeremy and his local label made sure to give back to the fans who made his single 4x platinum in the country. Surely, All The Kids are no longer depressed because Jeremy gave them a once in a lifetime chance wherein the fans definitely came thru.
