Felip, Dilaw, Lola Amour and more to kick-off Warner Music Philippines’ “We Play Here” event

It’s a celebration of star-studded proportions with the launch of Warner Music Philippines’ We Play Here!

As part of the label’s core mission to be at the forefront of championing Filipino music, Warner Music Philippines is celebrating its 30th anniversary in the country with a series of live performances and events to bring fans as well as local and international artists even closer together. To jumpstart the celebrations, six of the country’s most beloved musical acts are coming together for a one-of-a-kind, high-energy event.

SB19’s Ken—performing under his mononym FELIP—leads the lineup after his stellar solo debut earlier this year. After just three months since the release of his debut EP, COM·PLEX has over 3 million total streams on Spotify, with three of his singles charting on the platform’s Viral 50 Philippines playlist. He also received rave reviews for his dark and edgy brand of hip hop, with publications such as HipHopDX Asia saying that, “FELIP allows himself to go to the farthest, most experimental, and even most unthinkable places and tap into his own instincts to make music and art with the utmost freedom.”

The rising Davao-based hip hop group PLAYERTWO are expected to bring their a-game to the Samsung Hall stage. Composed of vocalists-producers Ivo Impreso, Luke April, Wave P, and visual directors Puhken and Ven Villariza, they soared to the top of the Spotify charts, with their breakout single “THAT’S MY BABY” garnering over 9 million streams. Their latest release, “TIKTIKTOKIN” has become a fan favorite as the quintet make their way all over the Philippines on their THAT’S MY BABY tour.

Rounding out the hip hop artists on the lineup is R&B singer and rapper JRLDM. A multi-awarded and internationally recognized performer, he is best known for his emotional and heartfelt flows that resonate with audiences. He, alongside labelmate Arkho of Midnasty, joined the inaugural edition of The Regionals: Philippines, the Philippine leg of the first ever Pan-Asia rap cypher series.

Rising pop band Dilaw will also be performing during the event. The band went viral on social media for their breakout song, “Uhaw (Tayong Lahat),” with over 22 million Spotify streams and over 1 million videos on TikTok. Just recently, the track clinched the top spot of Spotify’s Top Songs Philippines chart. They’re ready to bring their brand of unconventional lyricism and catchy tunes to the Samsung Hall stage.

Beloved pop rock band Lola Amour is one of the biggest acts in the music industry—playing in some of the biggest malls, schools, and festivals in the country. Their status as a fan favorite in the country definitely shows, especially with multiple Awit Award nominations to their name. As one of the most exciting bands in the scene today, they’ve played in venues all over the country, from malls, and even music festivals. Get ready to sing along to some of their biggest hits like “Fallen,” “Pwede Ba,” or “Madali.”

Last but definitely not the least are the soul and R&B duo Leanne & Naara, who are set to complete the event’s star-studded lineup. The pair is considered as one of the most decorated contemporary acts today, especially after they dominated the Awit Awards and snagged the highly-coveted Song of the Year and Album of the Year awards. Their silky smooth vocals are sure to sweep audiences off their feet.

“Our We Play Here series showcases and celebrates everything that is so exciting about where this generation of Filipino artists is at right now,” shares Sarah Ismail, Managing Director of Warner Music Philippines. “The acts are bigger, better, and more diverse than ever before, and our whole team is so proud of the role that Warner Music Philippines is playing in the global rise of OPM.

Fans and music lovers alike can expect more events that showcase the pride of Filipino music in the coming months. Stay tuned!
