#EastwoodNYE2023: Eastwood City to host bigger, brighter New Year Countdown 2023

Eastwood City, home of the longest-running and most-anticipated New Year’s Eve countdown celebration in Manila, returns with a bigger and brighter series of events to usher in the year 2023.

Going all out with its biggest celebration in two years, Eastwood – Quezon City New Year Countdown 2023 is set to return with a bang this December 31 at the Eastwood Mall Open Park with the much-anticipated free-for-all event that will feature live musical performances, fireworks displays, the iconic Star Drop, exciting activities, and an after-party that will run until the early hours of 2023.

The Rock to New Year’s Eve concert will begin at around 9PM. Guests can jam to energizing performances from Christian Bautista, Lola Amour, Yeng Constantino, and Zack Tabudlo.

The event will be hosted by Janeena Chan and Christian Bautista

When the clock strikes twelve, the crowd will be treated to a stunning view of Shower of Stars, a simultaneous fireworks display that will happen in two locations: at the 1880 Building and at the Global One Building. Eastwood City’s traditional Star Drop, which hearkens to the world-famous Ball Drop in Times Square in New York City, will also signal the changing of year, as well as a special Bubble Shower.

All night long, guests can visit Tipple Stations around Eastwood City, where they can toast to a selection of premium booze. Revelers can also swing by the New Year Picks booths, where they can find NYE merchandise, a sparkling photo wall for souvenirs, and other activities that are best enjoyed with family and friends.

The celebrations continue at the NYE After-Party at Fuente Circle, where there will be exciting games and a live DJ set awaiting revelers.

Those who are planning to relish in grand feasts or New Year gift hunting, Shop ‘Til Star Drop will treat guests to mall-wide deals and promotions on dining and shopping.

“This will be our grandest New Year’s Eve celebration after two years so we are excited to welcome everyone back to Eastwood City. We made it a point that our festivities will bring joy and entertainment; and most importantly inspire everyone to have a positive outlook and a determined spirit to face the year 2023,” said Graham Coates, Head of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.

Spotify Wrapped 2022: OPM Artists NOBITA, Zack Tabudlo, and Ben&Ben Lead the Charts

Spotify unveils its 2022 Wrapped campaign — announcing the top artists, albums, songs, playlists, and podcasts that showcase the vibrant kaleidoscope of more than 456 million listeners around the world. Spotify users can also find their personalized Wrapped experience, with latest features that celebrate how they soundtracked their year.

Globally, Bad Bunny, Taylor Swift and Drake topped the Wrapped lists across most-streamed album, track and artist. For the third year in a row, Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny took the number one spot for most-streamed artist globally, with more than 18.5 billion streams this year.

Closer to home, FIlipinos are taking their Wrapped results local.

Outranking global hits, NOBITA’s Ikaw Lang is the most streamed track in the Philippines, followed by Arthur Nery’s Pagsamo (#2), Adie’s Paraluman (#3), Zack Tabudlo’s Pano (#4) and Arthur Nery’s Isa lang (#5). Listeners are feeling all the hugot this year, where Pinoy love songs take center stage, even beating out Troye Sivan’s Angel Baby (#6) and Justin Bieber’s Ghost (#11).

Jaeson, Mark, Roman, Sam and Richmond of NOBITA thank their ‘Nobibis’ who helped put them on top, “We are truly honored to be part of Spotify’s Wrapped Top Lists this year and be recognized alongside other great Pinoy artists. Undeniably, our fans had been a huge part of this but we’re also grateful for Spotify’s untiring support to our music and its clear vision for their artists. Like most artists, we’re also eager to see our band’s Wrapped and see what we have done throughout 2022 as musicians.”

Clinching five out of the top ten spots in this year’s Top Artists are Pinoys, and breaking through the list is Zack Tabudlo, who secured the #3 spot and emerged as this year’s Top Local Artist. Pulling listeners into his own cinematic universe, Tabudlo’s cathartic “Episode” album is also the second most streamed album in the country. Ben&Ben proved themselves to be a mainstay among the local favorites as they maintained their fourth place from 2021 and kept a spot in the top list for the fourth consecutive year.

“We are thrilled to see that Filipino artists have continued to shine on the local stage, as seen on 2022’s Spotify Wrapped results. This shows that the Philippines are increasingly listening to and supporting their homegrown talent and we have seen an almost 50% increase in streams of local music the past year” said Kossy Ng, Head of Music, Spotify Asia. “We’re excited to continue working closely with local musicians and pave the way for more aspiring artists to flourish on the platform.”

Spotify’s RADAR program, an initiative to support emerging artists, has enabled new local artists and tracks to be added to the daily soundtrack of Filipinos’ lives. Other emerging artists like P-Pop groups, BGYO and BINI, are amongst the Top RADAR Philippines Artists, alongside Adie.

It has been another stellar year for podcasts in the Philippines, as Spotify continued to launch Exclusive and Original content with a slate of Filipino podcasting talent. Pinoy creators reign in this year’s Top Podcasts. Intimate sharing of life stories and advice are a hit amongst Filipinos with Barangay Love Stories, Spotify Exclusive skypodcast, Dear MOR: The Podcast, and Spotify Original Hugot Marcelo taking up the top four spots. Comedic conversations also resonate amongst locals with Spotify Exclusive Punchline with Alex Calleja taking up the fifth spot.

“Our Spotify Exclusive skypodcast is our first collaboration together as a couple, and it had been truly amazing to receive overwhelming support from our #skyfam. Podcasting has enabled us to talk in-depth about intimate topics. It’s even been a real help for our relationship as we’re able to spend time together and discuss things we normally wouldn’t. Being part of Spotify’s Wrapped Top Lists inspires us to keep growing as individuals so we can keep sharing new ideas to our listeners.” shares Kryz Uy of skypodcast.

Starting today, eligible users can also access their personalized 2022 Wrapped experience exclusively in their updated Spotify mobile app (iOS and Android). As an added treat to this year’s Wrapped season, Spotify is bringing Wrraped Playground to the Philippines! Between 10-11 December, Filipinos are invited to come to play at SM Mall of Asia (MoA). Experience different exciting activities and catch none other than BINI and BGYO!

Music is Universal returns this September in Singapore

Off the back of the widely successful pre-pandemic inaugural edition in 2019, Universal Music Singapore is back with a bang this September with its second iteration of Music is Universal, featuring an equally galvanizing line-up. Taking centre stage at the historic Capitol Theatre, an iconic architectural gem in the heart of Singapore’s Civic District, this exclusive event will aptly go down in history too.

Paralleling the same spirit of universality as in 2019, the invite-only evening aims to spotlight the intricate tapestry of artists under the Universal Music roster, with a truly stellar representation from across the globe and Southeast Asia. A proclamation that music is indeed universal, transcending both boundaries and borders.

The eclectic lineup spans a compelling mix of genres from rock to dream pop. Headlined by Gen-Z’s rock n’roll poster child from Doncaster who has earned co-signs from rock legends such as Mick Jagger, Ozzy Osbourne, and Dave Grohl, YUNGBLUD will captivate any audience with his larger than life personality. His self-titled album, YUNGBLUD, is set to release on September 2 and fans in Singapore will get an energetic taster on his sold-out shows.

Said YUNGBLUD, “Singapore is an incredible city, and to share the stage with the biggest artists from Southeast Asia is so exciting to me. I love going to experience new places and cultures, especially in music, so to have this experience will be unforgettable.”

Joined by Michigan-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist – Hayd is known for his lush piano-based pop and signature mellow sound driven by brutally honest lyrics and raw vocals which has garnered him close to 770M career streams.

Said Hayd, “I’m forever thankful to fans in Southeast Asia for showing their massive support for Head in The Clouds and using the track to share their personal snippets of life on social media. It will be an overwhelming sight to behold when the crowd sings it live in Singapore.”

Featuring Violette Wautier, the Thai-Belgian multi-hyphenate whose dreamy alternative pop sound is a blend of ethereal vocals and atmospheric guitars, topped the Apple Music charts at #1 in 7 countries with her single Smoke in 2020.

Said Violette Wautier, “I was in Singapore recently to watch a concert and it was unreal to see what live music meant to the fans. My friends in Singapore were sharing with me that they used to hear I’d Do It Again on the radio and I can’t wait to play it live for the first time at Music is Universal.”

Hailing from Southeast Asia as well, fast-rising Filipino alt-pop and R&B artist Zack Tabudlo will be gracing us with hits such as Binibini, Pano, Give Me Your Forever and more, following his sold-out US tour in May. Now the #1 Artist on Spotify in the Philippines with over 1.1B global streams, Zack is truly one to keep your eyes and ears out for.

Said Zack Tabudlo, “The diverse lineup at Music is Universal is testament that music fans have embraced the many different languages our region speaks. I look forward to sharing the stage with the other regional and international powerhouses and it will be a monumental showcase to exhibit what our borders have to offer.”

Performing alongside these household names is American-born, Singaporean-raised, and of Indonesian origin, Bernard Dinata who goes by the moniker lullaboy. A truly global artist with his uniquely intimate lyricisms, heartfelt acoustic soundscapes, and Berklee-trained pop sensibilities, the 26-year old singer-songwriter is now the biggest independent artist in Singapore and poised to become Asia’s next breakout act.

Said lullaboy, “I can’t wait to perform on the same stage as these amazing acts. It’s a testament to the immense talent here at Universal Music. It will be a night to remember for everyone involved.”

Admission to this exclusive event is by invite only, courtesy of Universal Music Singapore and partners. Event updates will be published on Universal Music Singapore’s social media pages.

Music Festival for a cause: Sigla Music Festival set to be held on July 16 in Batangas City

Dubbed as the biggest live event and concert in Southern Luzon since before the pandemic hit in 2022, the Sigla Music Festival (SMF) is set to electrify an estimated of no less than six thousand festival attendees on July 16 at the Batangas Provincial Sports Complex.

Some of the country’s top OPM artists will hit the stage to jam and serendate the crowd namely Ben&Ben, Adie, Zack Tabudlo, The Juans, Mayonnaise among others, with the said line-up topping PH’s spotify charts in recent years.

Organized by the Rotaract Club of Youth Batangueño (RYB), who made their debut as a youth-led non-government organization in 2021, in partnership with Beyond Limits Event Production, the SMF is first and foremost a benefit concert wherein a significant portion of its sales will go directly to 10 select charitable beneficiaries in the province of Batangas.

Meanwhile, despite being held in Batangas City, 107Km away from the country’s capital, SMF attendees will be coming from various places from across the island of Luzon, proving the high anticipation and excitement of concert-goers to go back again to the pre-pandemic situation.

According to Mr. Ervylle Abarintos, RYB’s Charter President, organizing such a huge event for a relatively young organization like RYB is a tough challenge but it was through their sheer hard work and dedication that all preparations were accomplished.

On the other hand, SMF will also give spotlight to budding local Batangueño artists who aspires to enter the music scene and also make an impact to the future of OPM, thereby giving a chance for newbies to have a shot at sharing their talents in the concert stage.

With tickets quickly selling out, all interested to be part of the growing SMF community are encouraged to secure their slots through https://www.facebook.com/racyouthbatangueno/

Zack Tabudlo offers words of reassurance through his new single

“It’s about someone who doesn’t realize their worth,” says Zack Tabudlo of his new single, “and [my song makes] them realize [that] they deserve more than they think.” The song is “Anghel,” yet another inspiring track from one of Southeast Asia’s younger hit-makers. Produced and recorded entirely by the artist, the track drops on June 24, 2022 on major streaming services.

Zack’s previous hits, most notably “Give Me Your Forever,” have dealt with various aspects of love. In writing this surprise for his many devoted listeners, he turns his attention this time to something that is real for many people in this uncertain age. Self-doubt, which is what “Anghel” is about, is something that, on one level, we encounter at one time or another. For those with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, such a feeling can make things worse.

However, the lyrics of “Anghel” still connect the theme of self-doubt to another aspect of love. In a way, Zack reminds us of a classic definition of love attributed to a noted thinker from many centuries ago [Thomas Aquinas], “Love is willing the good of the other.” The lyrics urge the beloved to be better than their wounds and see themselves as the angelic figure they could really be. This song is a timely reminder that those of us who love others, regardless of what our relationships are with them, sometimes need to reassure them of their worth.

While Zack’s song falls into a tradition of songs of reassurance and comfort, he says that the song “came out of nowhere,” adding that he hasn’t been listening to much else that would have inspired it. He also notes how the song takes on a different tone from the others he has written, emphasizing his sound’s blues and soul roots in a stronger way than usual.

A soulful song for such a time as this, “Anghel” is sure to be one that will resonate with Zack’s many listeners.
