Pink Sweat$, regarded as Philadelphia, USA’s own rising superstar, is earning his stripes and proving that every bit of praise and acclaim is in its rightful place, with his recent release of both the single and music video for “Heaven,” one of the featured tracks from his latest full-length album Pink Planet, which arrived last February 2021.
Released under Atlantic Records, Pink Planet is a collection of six previously released stellar singles off of his 2020 EP The Prelude and eight brand new tracks, including “Heaven” which drips of sensual melodies from “Mr. Love” himself (a moniker his legion of fans have since called him…) and the music video, as expected, is simply an awesome visual treat. In fact, Pink Planet highlights much-needed light and love after a rough year that was 2020: “with a purpose to heal and gift fans with much-needed good vibes, and to talk about highs, lows, fears and successes.”
Pink Sweat$ rose to international fame and acclaim with his original song “At My Worst,” which is one of his greatest performing singles to date, as the music video has more than 50 million views and counting on YouTube.com, and more than a million home-made videos on online video platform Tik Tok has been created so far using the song… it is also worth mentioning that his music has been exploding onto various global music charts and playlists, often in Asian territories like Malaysia, Indonesia and most notably, the Philippines.
So of course, Pink Sweat$ is celebrating the release of his single and album by making things extra-sweet n’ special for his Filipino fans, as he also recently dropped a live performance video and lyric video of the track “17” (also off of Pink Planet) which features a jaw-dropping collaboration with none-other than the Philippines’ Queen of Pop and Soul Moira Dela Torre. Compared to the track’s original bouncy and infectious version, the collaboration – which is now available for viewing on all digital streaming platforms – is stripped-down to its most potent version, and will surely tug at the heartstrings of listeners, many of whom are absolutely smitten with how disarmingly enchanting Dela Torre’s vocal melodies are.
Dela Torre herself couldn’t contain her excitement, and reveals that it is a timely celebration of one of many milestones in her career: “This collaboration marks the third anniversary of my first-ever solo concert, and this is an extra special way to show my gratitude to everyone for the best three years of my life so far…” the Filipina singing superstar was quoted saying in a prior interview. Dela Torre’s social media accounts exploded soon after she teased the announcement of the collaboration with Pink Sweat$ last February 2021.
Truly, this is a musical-match-made-in-heaven for music fans who have been aching for these worlds to collide.
