Iñigo Pascual, Maki, SAB, Zion, and other Tarsier Records artists continue to make waves in music with several milestones achieved last year and new music drops this month.
Options, Iñigo’s international album featuring the hit single “Catching Feelings” surpassed 20 million streams in 2022. Following its success, the Monarch star released a reimagined version of the album called Lockdown Sessions on January 20. It includes stripped-down, acoustic versions of the songs “Options,” “Neverland,” key track “Not Him,” and more.
Newcomer Maki made an R&B twist to the viral hit “Gusto Ko Nang Bumitaw” late last year, which crossed the half-a-million mark on Spotify by year-end.
TikTok star Zion Aguirre meanwhile achieved over 300,000 streams for his debut EP Bigkas.
The music video of Pinoy soul icon Kyla and “Marry Your Daughter” hitmaker Brian McKnight Jr.’s song collaboration “Cuz Of You (COY)” garnered over 130,000 YouTube views and its official hashtag was trending for 24 hours on Twitter. It features Kapamilya stars Anji Salvacion and Brent Manalo.
Marina Summers is the first drag queen to be part of Tarsier Records’ roster of artists. Her debut single “Divine” produced by Moophs gained 10,000 Spotify streams in less than 24 hours. The label continues to champion drag pop music and has just introduced another drag queen, Viñas Deluxe.
From milestones to new offerings, young artist SAB dropped the “Happy You Stayed” music video that also stars Kaori Oinuma and Shanaia Gomez on January 20 with over 73,000 YouTube views as of writing.
Dotty and Malli are also starting off the year with a fresh vibe through their collaboration “icy,” a rap track that talks about protecting one’s energy from negative people. The two also dropped the song’s music video on YouTube two Fridays ago.
