Alternative pop and R&B artist Zack Tabudlo’s song about the “indescribable attraction between two lovers” has broken a record on Spotify as the longest-running number 1 local track by a Filipino RADAR artist on the Philippines Top 50 Chart this year.
“Binibini” maintained its reign at the top of the charts for six consecutive weeks, and gained global footing by topping the charts for four consecutive weeks on Global Viral.
The song is Tabudlo’s best performing track on Spotify to date, amassing more than 18.3 million streams since its release a few months ago.
“‘Binibini’ holds a special place in my heart as it is inspired by a previous relationship that left a lasting mark on my life. It expresses a powerful and indescribable attraction between two lovers, who are waiting for the right moment to show their true feelings,” he shared.
Following its success on the RADAR Philippines and OPM Rising playlists, “Binibini” made its way to OPM playlist Tatak Pinoy and subsequently scored a spot in Spotify’s flagship playlist Hot Hit Philippines. It also made it to the Viral 50 charts internationally.
“Seeing how much the song resonated with listeners not just locally but globally is a surreal and fulfilling personal milestone, and I’m thankful to have Spotify’s support throughout this time,” enthused Tabudlo.
The 19-year-old Island Records Philippines / MCA Music signed singer is part of the Spotify RADAR Philippines, a global program featuring emerging artists, spotlighting their work on the global stage and connecting them with new audiences.
“We launched our RADAR program in early 2020 with the aim of amplifying the reach of emerging local artists. Seeing what Zack Tabudlo and Island Records Philippines / MCA Music has achieved is an exciting thing for us here at Spotify,” said Kossy Ng, Spotify Asia’s head of music.
