Multi-platinum selling pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer release their highly anticipated fifth studio album, 5SOS5. With 5SOS5, the band has ascended to the next level musically. The 19-track album showcases the band’s multi-faceted artistry and growth over their 10-year career, highlighting their dynamic pop-punk sound paired with reflective and intimate lyrics, with the majority of the new album written by the band and Michael Clifford leading on production.

The release of 5SOS5 includes their brand new single “Bad Omens’’ as well as previously released tracks “Blender”, “Take My Hand”, & “Me, Myself & I”, which gave fans an eagerly awaited preview of what to expect from the album. On Vulture’s list of most anticipated fall albums, they write: “Early singles ‘Complete Mess’ and ‘Me Myself & I’ promise more of the group’s signature power-pop sound, while adding a little synth-pop flair.”

5SOS5 also includes the band’s smash hit “COMPLETE MESS”, an anthemic single that took airwaves by storm as the #2 most added at Top 40 Radio with 100+ stations in the first week. The single was hailed by critics, with Rolling Stone (Australia) writing: “its nascent arrival showcase[es] the group’s evolved sound as they balance an expansive vibe with contemporary pop sensibilities … considered compositions and mature sound showcase a new version of 5 Seconds of Summer, but not one that is so far removed from what made them icons in the first place.”

In celebration of the release of 5SOS5, 5 Seconds of Summer played an exclusive global livestream “The Feeling of Falling Upwards” last night from the world-famous Royal Albert Hall in London. The band performed a set of reimagined versions of songs from their 11-year catalogue, plus brand-new songs from the new album, accompanied by an orchestra and choir.

5SOS5 is the band’s first album to be released independently via BMG. The deluxe CD and digital versions of the album include 19 tracks with cassette and vinyl formats also available. Complete track listing is below.

Here’s how TikTok propelled Ricky Montgomery into indie-pop stardom

If there’s an artist whose songs have aged like fine wine, it’s Ricky Montgomery. Anyone who’s on TikTok has probably heard two of the indie-pop star’s songs on repeat – “Mr. Loverman” and “Line Without a Hook.” The former is a softer, more gentle track that builds up to a rousing sing-along chorus, while the latter is a more upbeat narrative on coming of age paired with power-pop riffs.

Both songs were actually released in 2016 as part of Ricky’s album titled Montgomery Ricky, but it wasn’t until recently that they became certified hits. Today’s listeners have clearly found his sound to be equal parts comforting, relatable, and timeless. These songs, particularly “Line Without a Hook,” propelled him into TikTok stardom and earned him over one million followers on the platform.

Filipinos were quick to use Ricky’s songs on their videos, even creating their own storylines for them. One that has been especially popular is using “Line Without a Hook” for POV skits where the school nerd practices for a singing audition or talent show.

Filipino content creator Feby Villar made a TikTok for this trend, and it has garnered over five million likes and 30 thousand comments, one of which came from Ricky himself. Another content creator, Spencer Serafica, also joined in on the fun and his creative take on the popular POV skit didn’t go unnoticed. Ricky ended up doing a duet video with his video.

This shows not only the appeal of Ricky’s songs, but his gratitude toward anyone who supports his music. His TikTok page is filled with countless other videos of him duetting with people who have used his songs as audio.

The virality of his songs on the social platform was a turning point for Ricky, who nearly quit being a musician just before his songs’ new-found fame. But with a little assurance of his music’s impact, especially during the pandemic, he decided to continue doing what he loves.

Ricky is currently doing a massive tour across the US, and has recently released an EP titled It’s 2016 Somewhere. It shares his genuine feelings about the whirlwind journey of his career and his life in general. It also serves as somewhat of a catharsis for him – one last look at the past before he moves toward what’s ahead.

Aside from including acoustic versions of his songs “Mr. Loverman” and “I Don’t Love You Anymore,” Ricky’s EP highlights key moments in his life, whether it’s heartbreak from a romantic relationship or the grief behind his dad’s death. Fans will be delighted that the EP is the best of both worlds: Ricky staying true to his sound while being a breath of fresh air to today’s indie-pop scene.

“Bla Bli Blu” is your new “I Love You”

Synonymous to “I love you”, “Bla Bli Blu” is a love language created by the Thai-Italian artist to express her love through this catchy feel-good track that she co-wrote with Richard Craker and Jackson Dimiglio. A glimpse into Valentina’s multilingualism, the pre-hook is a cheeky preview to her proficiency in Italian, French, and Spanish, as she professes her love in these languages before diving into a grand confession through her very own love language – “Bla Bli Blu”.

In explaining the inspiration behind the bathroom-written track that she speaks very fondly of; Valentina conveyed her difficulties in expressing her love in those three words as it can sometimes feel limiting. Putting her own spin into this expression, “Bla Bli Blu” carries an infectious charm and endearment that is hard to resist.

“Bla Bli Blu” will be accompanied by an adorable music video starring Valentina herself, and German-Thai actor Nino Wongchaiseree. As you’ll be tickled pink, the pair’s chemistry will make you relieve all the exhilaration a romance can offer, and have you fall in love with the compatible on-screen couple. Available this evening at 7pm (SGT), the official music video of “Bla Bli Blu” will be made live on Valentina Ploy’s YouTube channel.

Keep your eyes on the next “It Girl” on the block as “Bla Bli Blu” marks the first of many releases Valentina Ploy has in the pipeline with Warner Music Asia for the year.

Valentina shared, “I am so happy to be working with Warner Music. Very excited and grateful to become part of the family as I feel that they support my vision of developing my artist career beyond limits. It’s always been a dream of mine to bring my music to the world and Warner Music is perfectly suited to help me reach the widest audience possible. With Warner Music and What the Duck, I’ll have an amazing set of partners that will help me achieve my vision and goal.”

Five female superstars who are dominating today’s music scene

March may have ended, but we’re not done celebrating Women’s History Month just yet! We’re putting the focus on some of our favorite superstars – multifaceted women who are making waves in and out of the music industry.

These women continue to elevate their respective genres and empower others to express themselves, all while exploring different aspects of their artistry. Read on to discover if your favorite artist made the cut, and what songs of theirs you can’t miss!

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa is an artist that needs no introduction. This pop superstar started her career by posting song covers on YouTube, but what really propelled her into the spotlight was her hit song “New Rules.” From then on, it was just success after success for Dua, and the three-time Grammy Award winner is now currently on the US leg of her Future Nostalgia tour.

To share more about her experiences and create stronger connections with her fans, Dua also recently launched Service95. This weekly newsletter serves up a curation of recommendations, stories, and conversations that readers won’t see or read anywhere else. Not long after, she launched her podcast called Dua Lipa: At Your Service, where she and several podcast guests discuss relevant topics such as the importance of responsible storytelling and women supporting women.

Songs you can’t miss: We’re pretty sure you’ve listened to “Levitating” a handful of times (and we can’t blame you), but another fun and upbeat song to stream is Dua’s latest release – “Sweetest Pie” with Megan Thee Stallion.

Bella Poarch

Anyone who’s on TikTok is bound to know Bella Poarch. This pure Filipina rose to internet stardom after a video of her lip-syncing became viral in August 2020, getting more than 50 million likes. What eventually followed was her rise to becoming the #1 most followed Asian on TikTok worldwide! Soon, all eyes were on the 25-year-old star, and she proved not long after that her talents went beyond making TikTok videos.

In 2021, Bella released her first single called “Build a Bitch.” It became a global success, with its music video getting nearly 400 million views. This is no surprise, as the song is catchy, fresh, and calls out the unrealistic standards that women are told they must live up to. It’s clear that Bella uses her music not only to entertain, but also to go against problematic ideologies in today’s society.

Songs you can’t miss: “Build a Bitch” is a must-listen, but if you want the perfect blend of haunting and upbeat, check out her song with Sub Urban titled “Inferno.”


One female rap star who’s made a name for herself in recent years is Saweetie. The Grammy-nominated artist started writing rap music in her early teens, and has pursued her passion for it since then. From uploading a now-viral freestyle video on Instagram to creating countless hit songs like “ICY GRL,” “High Maintenance,” and “My Type,” Saweetie is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.

Outside of music, she released an ICY jewelry line and collaborated with UK-based fashion retailer PrettyLittleThings for her very own collection. Hard work and independence have obviously always been in Saweetie’s blood, something that her Filipino-American family taught her at an early age. She’s proof that working for what you want pays off, and we are here for it!

Songs you can’t miss: If you’re looking for a song to hype you up and get you dancing, then “Best Friend” featuring Doja Cat is the go-to. Looking for something more sultry and sensual? Then check out Saweetie’s new breezy single called “Closer” featuring H.E.R.


Unfiltered, honest, and genuine – these are some words that describe chart-topping pop singer GAYLE. Much like Bella Poarch, this Gen-Z artist blew up on TikTok after sharing her hit song “abcdefu” on the platform. Since then, she’s been receiving much deserved attention and acclaim, whether it’s being part of Billboard’s 21 under 21: The Ones To Watch or being a guest performer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

GAYLE recently released her debut EP “a study of the human experience volume one,” which touches on her insecurities, desires, and raw emotions. Her relatable and nuanced songs embrace vulnerability, while also empowering others to be unapologetic about their feelings.

Songs you can’t miss: If you loved “abcdefu,” then you’ll love the equally catchy “luv starved.”

Avril Lavigne

Rounding up this list is none other than pop-punk princess Avril Lavigne. The multi-platinum singer recently released her highly anticipated album “Love Sux,” sending fans into a frenzy. The album was well received, with a number of critics praising Avril for sticking to her nostalgic pop-punk sound while making sure it’s current and in the now.

Avril is set to go on her Bite Me 2022 Canada Tour this coming May, and will be part of several concerts and music festivals for the rest of the year. As a trailblazer in her genre and in the industry in general, she continues to inspire fellow artists to stay authentic to their true selves as they work on their craft.

Songs you can’t miss: If you want to listen to songs that are reminiscent of Avril’s past hits, then give “Bite Me” and “Love It When You Hate Me” a try.

“Bursting with Lavigne’s striking runs, spunky one-liners and the rush that made listeners become fans of her work from the get-go. It’s what makes “Love Sux” both nostalgic and of the moment.” – Los Angeles Times

“Avril Lavigne is known for being a pillar of pop-punk in the early 2000s, who paved her own path in the male dominated alt-rock world…But the Grammy Award-nominated artist is reminding everyone that she is still the master of the genre in her new seventh album, “Love Sux.”” – Associated Press

“A full-throttle, Warped Tour-ready spectacle, 33 minutes of brash guitar licks and snarling kiss-offs…Love Sux could be described as a return to form for the ‘pop-punk princess’” – Billboard

Here’s a playlist for your post-valentines high

If actions speak louder than words, music amplifies feelings ten times over. This love month, you’ve probably seen a lot of couples dedicate their favorite love songs to their significant others. Or you might have been one from the receiving end. Regardless of what your relationship status is or what month it is, you deserve a love song dedicated to you. Here are some of the best songs to listen to (Valentines or not):

Let Somebody Go by Coldplay feat. Selena Gomez
Did you ever find a love you thought that would never end? Have you ever heard of the saying: Right person, wrong time? Well, this might just apply to you. It’s complex and better said than done but maybe you’re better letting go and moving forward. Maybe someday, somewhere, you’ll meet each other again… Listen to Let Somebody Go by the legendary Coldplay and Selena Gomez, and you might just realize the signs.

I Love Myself In Loving You by Jamie Miller
Remember the 5 stages of grief? Healing is probably the hardest yet most fulfilling of all. There will be ups and downs to a person’s healing process but what’s most important is you’re doing it. Acknowledge the pain. Open yourself to joy. Take it one step at a time. Time is always meant to heal the fall. Take it from Here’s Your Perfect hitmaker, Jamie Miller in his brand new song I Love Myself In Loving You.

Line Without a Hook by Ricky Montgomery
Hey, every person has needs. You have Mr. Maslow detailing it out for us. It’s not a sin to need someone – craving for physical intimacy or mental stimulation or just someone to understand you. Take a break from being strong and independent, and sing your lungs out to Ricky Montgomery’s Line Without a Hook.

Real Thing feat. Tori Kelly by Pink Sweat$
You know when you first realize you’ve found your person? That feeling like you’re floating in heaven because you got the real thing? This song is exactly that. Pink Sweat$ and Tori Kelly serving you with their beautiful vocals and runs over a chill, acoustic duet. It just makes you sigh and think… Ahhhhh, love.

I’m Yours by Jason Mraz
Do we have to explain this? If we could put all Jason Mraz songs in here, believe us we would. His album, Lalalalovesongs, perfectly documents everything we feel when we’ve been hit by Cupid’s arrow. You can’t debate with us on this – I’m Yours is a classic and will stand the test of time as being one of the best love songs ever. Period.

I’ll Never Not Love You by Michael Buble
If there’s ILYSB, then there’s INNLY. Our resident crooner, Michael Buble, lists down all the things he’ll never do (and not do) to the love of his life – and maybe you should to! This one is quite new but we’re already seeing this as a future classic. And have you seen the music video? He said it serves as the sequel to his Haven’t Met You Yet video 12 years ago. Absolutely brilliant!

abcdefu by GAYLE
You must have heard this one from TikTok. It’s not exactly a love song for someone but maybe for yourself? Are you done with all the bull – your broke-down car, so-called art, everything but your dog? Express your angst!!! GAYLE, a seventeen-year-old singer-songwriter from the US, wrote this song for you and the others who streamed this song 421 million times.

I Love You So by The Walters
Is it complicated? Need to give it structure? If you dare, send this song (or better yet, sing it) to that person and check their reaction. The Walters’ I Love You So is TikTok-trending for a reason.

lowkey by NIKI
If you like to keep your relationship lowkey, that’s great. If you don’t, that’s great too! You do you! Shout it for the world to hear and see. Love for a long time, not just every summertime.

Love It When You Hate Me by Avril Lavigne
If you think love sux (!!!) and you can’t help but get angry or sad or disappointed about what went wrong, don’t fret, your feelings are valid. Should you need to let some steam out, try shouting every single word from Avril Lavigne’s new tracks, Bite Me and Love It When You Hate Me feat. blackbear. Wear your black liner too for added effect. Or maybe, crank up the volume and listen to her whole album, Love Sux, out February 25.

Whatever you’re feeling, there’s a song out there to help you express it. Here’s a playlist of all our inner monologues: wmp.lnk.to/hotandrising

Grammy nominated artists, Saweetie, visits the Philippines in new music video ‘Closer’ feat. fellow Fil-Am award winning artist, H.E.R

Grammy-nominated star and Filipino-American Saweetie teams up with fellow Filipino-American and R&B chart-topper H.E.R. for a breezy, sensual new single, “Closer.” The dance-infused track finds the duo serving up playful lines and seductive melodies, reaffirming Saweetie’s penchant for making hits that feel nostalgic, yet uniquely hers. Listen to “Closer” on ICY/Warner Records HERE. They also unveiled the blockbuster music video to the track last February 15, a post-Valentines treat to all their lovely fans in the Philippines and across the world!

In the music video (directed by Hanna Lux Davis), Saweetie and H.E.R. take themselves (and their icy friends) on a trip around the world via ICY Airlines! Saweetie pulls stops at Paris, Tokyo and of course, the Philippines – living life to the fullest – with whirlwind romances and lots, and lots of shopping involved! To date, the video has accumulated 4.6 million views on YouTube!

Coasting above funky electric guitar, Saweetie lays out a blueprint for fun: “I wanna fall in love for the weekend/Three boyfriends I don’t know where I’m sleeping/We be thuggin’, clubbin’, f*ckin’/Order room service when we done, that’s the sequence.” H.E.R.’s breathy, emotive hook is a fitting accompaniment. With a beat designed to soundtrack a dancefloor, and lyrics that call you there, “Closer” is a mesmerizing single that demands to be repeated. The track is also yet another reason to be excited about Saweetie’s forthcoming debut album, Pretty Bitch Music.

“Closer” only continues Saweetie’s recent streak of dynamic hits. Before this, she unloaded “Icy Chain,” a glitchy, self-assured song she performed on Saturday Night Live in November. Over the past couple of years, she’s also built momentum with infectious tracks like “Best Friend” with Doja Cat and “Back to the Streets” with Jhené Aiko. She also recently contributed “Get It Girl” to Issa Rae’s Insecure: Music from the HBO Original Series Season 5. And in 2021 she shared “Attitude,” a confident track that appears on the soundtrack to Halle Berry’s Bruised.

It’s all proof of Saweetie’s knack for club anthems filled with memorable hooks and aspirational images of wealth — a.k.a., an Icy Girl lifestyle. Since breaking out with her 2017 single “Icy Girl,” she’s unloaded an almost uncountable number of hits expanding her vision of what that lifestyle entails. Her undeniable impact has led to plenty of GRAMMY® Awards buzz with two nominations for Best Rap Song “Best Friend” and Best New Artist, making Billboard, Variety, and more nominations prediction lists. In addition to partnerships with McDonald’s, MAC, Crocs, and more, Saweetie won a 2021 MTV VMA for Art Direction on “Best Friend,” 2021 BET Hip-Hop Award for “Hustler of the Year” and was nominated for an American Music Award and a People’s Choice Award. With “Closer” at her back and her debut album, Pretty Bitch Music, on the way, Saweetie is in a prime position to make 2022 her best year yet.

Michael Bublé to help a lucky Filipino fan with their Valentines confession

It’s love month, and multi-Grammy winning superstar Michael Bublé is joining in the celebration. He wants to help YOU make the best love confession ever!

Warner Music Philippines, in partnership with TikTok Philippines, launches #INNLY (short for I’ll Never Not Love You) where lucky Filipino fans can get a chance to receive a personalized video from Michael Buble for their significant other, plus a Valentines package to enjoy together. This Valentines gimmick is part of the social platform’s love month campaign this 2022, #TikTokPusuanMo. More information here.

This follows his announcement that he will be releasing HIGHER, his 11th studio album on Warner Records / Reprise Records on March 25th. Pre-order HERE.

Bublé’s first single, “I’ll Never Not Love You” finds the multi-Grammy, multi-Juno and multi-platinum selling global superstar entertainer at the peak of his vocal and creative powers.

Produced by Greg Wells and Bob Rock along with Alan Chang, Jason ‘Spicy G’ Goldman and Sir Paul McCartney, HIGHER is Bublé’s first studio album in three years and follows his hugely successful sold out two-year global “An Evening With Michael Bublé Tour” as well as the 10th year of the massive success of his classic Christmas album.

Standouts on the new album include a magical duet with Willie Nelson of his song “Crazy,” a Bublé heartfelt version of the Sir Paul McCartney penned song “My Valentine” (produced by McCartney), the Bob Dylan classic “Make You Feel My Love,” and three Bublé penned originals including the new single “I’ll Never Not Love You.” Other highlights are Bublé’s take on the Sam Cooke’s classic “Bring It On Home To Me,” “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything,” and the joyous “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square.” The album closes with a dramatic and breathtaking version of “Smile” accompanied by a gospel choir.

Commented Bublé, “This time out, I opened myself up completely to trying new things. I dug deeper while working and surrounding myself with the greatest music makers on the planet with gigantic imaginations. Whether it was sitting down to write with Ryan Tedder and Greg Wells, recording three songs in one day with my pal Bob Rock along with 40 of the most amazing musicians off the studio floor who hadn’t played music in 15 months, dancing around laughing and crying in my underwear in my home studio when a song sounded just right, every moment felt magical or that the universe was conspiring to bring me to this moment in time 20 years into this amazing ride I’ve been on. I have never been more excited after completing an album.”

“Michael Bublé is a great dance partner. He gives me lots of credit but I credit him for opening up his trust to try working with a new team. He’s a phenomenal hitmaker,” commented Greg Wells.

Added Bob Rock, “Since I’ve worked with him, this was the most focused and inspired Michael has been. He understood the record he wanted to make. He had a clear vision. As soon as we started, he stuck his neck out to make each song get to the place that he was hearing it in his head.”

Michael Bublé started singing at age four in his family’s home in Burnaby, Canada and hasn’t stopped since that time. His self-titled debut album on Reprise Records was released in 2005. A series of multi-platinum, No. 1 albums followed including Call Me Irresponsible, Crazy Love, To Be Loved and Christmas. His most recent album Love debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. He has sold over 75 million albums during the course of his extraordinary career. His Christmas album, released ten years ago continues to sell and stream in the millions and billions and his voice has become synonymous with the holiday season. As a performer, Bublé has enjoyed enormous success these past several decades as one of the most exciting global touring artists out there with sold out shows in over 30 countries. His most recent tour, “An Evening With Michael Bublé” from 2019-2022 was seen by over a million fans around the world. He loves hockey, fantasy football, TikTok, and singing. He is the proud father of Noah, Eli and Vida.
