With Meg’s calming and fragile vocals, each drop of emotion is set to be felt by hearts that know of love. Meg Zurbito is an emerging singer-songwriter who draws inspiration from indie, folk, old-school music like The Beatles and Clara Benin.

    What do you get when you compose and produce a song for queens? Not one, not two, but three videos to celebrate them!  The dance pop-funk single “Yas Queen'' featuring neo-soul singer Dani Idea of DANIDEA was written, composed, and produced by Jensen Gomez himself. Having grown up surrounded by queens such as his mother, sisters, and friends, he wanted to write a song inspired from and dedicated to them. Although he initially wrote “Yas Queen” for another recording artist to perform, Jensen ended up using this as his carrier single for his Phases Vol. 2 EP because of the positive message he wants to advocate -- self-love, confidence, and empowerment to anyone and everyone who identifies themselves as queens! Staying true to its essence of “Yas Queen” being a song for and of queens, Jensen Gomez bows down from the spotlight and lets queens reign our screens for the lyric video, dance video, and music video of the single. “Yas Queen” lyric video featuring sisters Dani Idea and Angela Idea  Just as the song goes, “I’m a queen and I’m having such a good time!”, the lyric video for “Yas Queen” shows the Idea sisters having the time of their lives while they sing their hearts out regardless if they’re in pajamas or sporting their ‘90s outfit in their rooms by themselves. What does the lyric video tell us? Queens don’t need kings to have a good time, they are more than fine on their own.   “Yas Queen” dance video choreographed and performed by Filipina ballerina Denise Parungao-Phillips  Fitting of a queen’s description, the dance video of “Yas Queen” exudes grace, power, confidence, and beauty as top Filipina ballerina Denise Parungao-Phillips captivates us with her long lines, strong jumps, and enjoyable moves. Using dance as her form of expression, Denise is all smiles as she boldly dances on a rooftop to confidently shout to the world that she’s a queen and she’s not afraid to show it -- barefaced, sweat, scars, and all. What’s the message behind the dance? As you are, you’re perfect and more than enough to be a queen. Dani Idea in the “Yas Queen” music video   Jensen Gomez being a true king, lets his queen, Dani Idea, shine in the Yas Queen music video. Here we see Dani slaying different queen personas from preppy to chic to ‘80s aerobics extravaganza while being a whole mood for 3 minutes. As Jensen Gomez stands beside her in some shots, we see a king supporting a queen in her element -- as it should be!  What’s the main message of “Yas Queen”? You may be wearing different crowns, but are all queens nonetheless. “Yas Queen” ft. Dani Idea by Jensen Gomez is the carrier single of “Phases Vol. 2”, Jensen’s second EP of the Phases trilogy. Watch the “Yas Queen” music video here: http://offtherecordph.lnk.to/YasQueenMVListen to Phases Vol. 2 here: https://OffTheRecordPH.lnk.to/JensenGomez_PhasesVol2Listen to Phases Vol. 1 here: https://OffTheRecordPH.lnk.to/JensenGomez_PhasesVol1EP For more news and updates on Jensen Gomez, follow him onFacebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube. For more news and updates on Off The Record, follow Off The Record onFacebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube.

Her newest music offering, "Love Language" marks her foray evolving from her Ms. Universe title for which she is most popularly known, towards her persona as a performer.

She will take you to a subliminal music experience from this song to the next, so let’s welcome and listen to Catriona."Love Language" explores the depths of a lover's yearning revolving around the need to receive love in the form of words of affection. The song's theme doesn't implicate a lack of love, rather the misunderstanding of it, nodding to a yearning that no one is a stranger to. Love Language is Catriona's first songwriting and composition debut, laid over a lofi rnb feel with a taste of sophisti-pop in collaboration with Cabu.

    Promising newcomer BLASTER has recently joined the esteemed roster of Island Records Philippines, a domestic label division under UMG Philippines, which is dedicated to helping the best musical talent from the Philippines to achieve local success, whilst reaching new audiences worldwide.     The lead guitarist and occasional vocalist of award-winning band, IV of Spades will be part of an internationally renowned label that includes some of the most exciting and future-forward artists in the country such as Zack Tabudlo, Juan Karlos, Over October, Fern., and dia mate.   A&R Manager and Label Head of Island Records Philippines Bel Certeza recently expressed interest in working with BLASTER on upcoming releases that will showcase the multi-hyphenate’s core strength as both an artist and an innovator. “Island Records Philippines is looking forward to help and guide BLASTER to where he wants to take his music and vision as an artist. Releasing a body of work is in the pipeline but it’s not yet final as we’d also like to learn with him and his audience as we go along.”     Certeza, who used to be the former Road Manager of IV of Spades, pitched the idea to BLASTER with the intention to understand where he is now as an artist and where he wants to go moving forward. After hearing what Blaster has in mind, she immediately presented how Island Records Philippines can help bring his vision to reality. “After a series of long Zoom calls with MCA Music Managing Director Enzo Valdez, we were able to come up with a deal that caters to BLASTER’s integrity as an artist but also something that would make sense to the label,” Bel shares. “And now here we are.”   On the heels of the official signing is the release of “DISKO FOREVER (Japanese version),” a retro-modern bop that blends Manila Sound with bedroom electronica and avant-pop influences. Sung completely in Japanese, the new iteration serves as a warm-up track to the Tagalog version, which the young Filipino artist will be releasing soon.   With its groovy rhythms, art-rock guitars, and eclectic arrangements, the genre-averse jam takes you back to the dance floor in a time that doesn’t allow communal gathering. The delightfully bittersweet track also doubles as a tribute to the golden era of Pinoy pop music, and is reimagined for a new generation of listeners to enjoy.   BLASTER’s “DISKO FOREVER” is out now on all streaming platforms worldwide via Island Records Philippines and MCA Music Inc.     About Blaster With a knack for making experimental pop music that is characterized by immutable prettiness and bedroom-lite production, Blaster Silonga is set to make a significant impact as one of the promising young solo stars of his generation. As the former lead guitarist and occasional vocalist for award-winning and commercially successful Filipino rock band, IV of Spades, Blaster has endeared fans and peers in the industry with his inventive but technically adept musicianship, often wielding his instrument with the sophisticated cool of Nile Rodgers and the effortless edginess of Johnny Greenwood.   Outside of his work with his former band, Blaster has worked with several artists, including doing production work for alt-R&B artist dia maté on the luscious summertime tune, “Dream,” and jamming with artists such as Ebe Dancel and Hilera’s Chris Padilla at some point in his career.   Now signed to Island Records Philippines as a solo musician, Blaster is ready to release new music that strikes a balance between remarkable restraint and sonic adventurousness, seemingly inspired by outlandish personalities in music such as Radiohead and David Bowie, and genres that range from art rock to space rock, funk to Japanese city pop. So far, he’s is currently recorded demos for his upcoming releases, which will see the light of day soon: there’s the deceptively simple “Disko Forever,” which pays tribute to a glorious era in music, while also dressing it up with woozily beautiful things this side of Krautrock and modern electronica, and the lighthearted and gorgeous number “Nararamdaman” which showcases Blaster’s minimal instrumentation and guitar/bass skills.   The 21-year-old singer-songwriter and producer also reveals that he is channeling his daily life experiences and random observations through music, purposefully aligning it with his brooding, socially aware, and intimate worldview. His writing feels more personal and honest this time around—not afraid to create artistic statements that double as confessionals.
