The emotional ballad serves as the first offering off their three-part release
Ben&Ben captures the wave-like loneliness that follows a protracted period of separation from a loved one.
The nine-piece group deals with the emotional challenges that they face in Autumn,” their new single, which is available today via Sony Music Entertainment. The song talks about “the distance that people often unintentionally create with their other half, because of the changes that life throws at us.”
Right in the middle of their North American tour last year, the Paninidigan Kita hitmakers wrote the reflective track in Canada. Paolo Benjamin, the lead singer and guitarist for the band, was suffering from a deep want to be with his partner because they were finding the long distance to be quite difficult.
“A few months later, in early 2023, brother Miguel Benjamin completed the lyrics, also adding a bridge about being in different seasons, which really completed the message of the song,” the folk-pop collective adds. “It speaks about themes of loneliness, yearning, and ultimately, hoping against hope that a new season will come.”
Marking a new chapter for the band, “Autumn” embraces a new direction that reveals subtle details with each listen. Blending rich, acoustic arrangements with lush textures and otherworldly touches, the emotional ballad is meticulously crafted to capture the yearning that comes with being in a long-distance relationship with your other half.
According to a joint statement from the award-winning group, “Autumn is a song where we showcase how we’ve evolved and matured as a band. In terms of writing, we thought the viewpoint offered a more sober and realistic analysis of the issue. We learned a lot of new techniques for producing and arranging sounds that convey the mood we were aiming for.”
Ben&Ben intends to release the music as part of a three-part release in the upcoming weeks. In addition to “Autumn,” the well-known Filipino group will release a special collaboration with another artist on December 8, 2023, and the full-band version of their brand-new song “Courage” the following week.
Ben&Ben’s Autumn” is currently available via Sony Music Entertainment on all digital music platforms worldwide.
Tate McRae, a multi-platinum singer-songwriter, releases the official music video for her new song “exes” along with it via RCA Records. “Exes,” which was co-written and co-produced by hitmakers Ryan Tedder (Taylor Swift, Beyoncé) and Tyler Spry (OneRepublic, Anitta), is driven by Tate’s lively vocals, which are subtly interspersed with synth bursts.
With choreography by Sean Bankhead (Cardi B, Lil Nas X) and direction by Aerin Moreno (Dove Cameron, Madison Beer), the seductive music video shows Tate and her dancers take over a dilapidated rodeo for the evening. The incredibly talented Tate will make you unable to turn away as she soars to pop glory with her captivating visuals and intense choreography.
Tate adds, “We wrote “exes” on the last day of the album making process. It was kind of like the last hurrah that Ryan Tedder and I wrote in legitimately 30 minutes. It talks about my flaws in a relationship, and some of my self-deprecating and self-sabotaging tendencies. The music video was so insane to film — getting to dance that much with such incredible girls was a dream.”
Showing no signs of slowing down, the star is making her musical guest debut on Saturday Night Live tomorrow night with host Jason Momoa. Featured on the cover of Billboard’s November Music Awards Issue, Tate will be performing at the show this Sunday where she’s also nominated for her collaboration with Tiësto on “10:35” in Top Dance/Electronic Song.
Releasing December 8th, Tate’s highly anticipated sophomore album, THINK LATER, is executive produced by Ryan Tedder. Pre-order HERE. THINK LATER and its songsare steeped in pop appeal and infectious toplines. Showcasing Tate’s boundless vocal talent and evolution as a songwriter, this new body of work explores the all-too-relatable feelings of falling in love and embracing the raw emotions that you experience as a result of leading with your intuition and heart.
The first taste of music from the forthcoming album, “greedy”, earned the star her first #1 on the Spotify Global chart and top 10 on the Billboard Global 200 chart hitting #3. The self-assured hypnotic offering has garnered over 394 million streams to date and hit #11 on Hot 100 along with #1 most added at Top 40 and Hot AC radio upon release. Making it her biggest debut to date, “greedy” has been called “an artistic turning point… a propulsive self-empowerment anthem built around a firecracker of a pop hook that finds McRae dipping in and out of a falsetto while exuding unshakeable confidence” by Billboard. Watch her perform the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
She will set off on her first international tour the following year, called the‘THINK LATER TOUR,” which will take her 53 dates across Europe, the UK, North America, Australia, and New Zealand. The tour, which is produced by Live Nation, begins on Wednesday, April 17 at 3Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland.

On December 20, 2023, at 8:00 p.m., the Theatre at Solaire in Paranaque City, Metro Manila, will host a Christmas-themed concert featuring the legendary Filipino musician AEGIS, who is poised to take the stage, ahead. We are all excited to witness this heart-stopping musical feast by these amazing performers.

The year-end event, dubbed AEGIS: The Christmas Bonus Concert, intends to highlight the mighty band’s career-spanning history and its hallmark anthems that have personally impacted many people’s lives.
In addition to the group’s soul-stirring performances, one of the guest acts at the eagerly awaited evening will be diamond-selling musician Jose Mari Chan. The music sensation and business entrepreneur, who is well-known for his beloved classics and Christmas-themed repertoire, will be delivering an unexpected set that is likely to lighten the mood of the star-studded lineup this evening.
The Manila String Machine will change into a 15-piece orchestra to accompany AEGIS on select songs, adding to the already extraordinary occasion. With a “AEGIS” collaboration that every music lover shouldn’t miss, The Manila String Machine is prepared to capture the spirit of the holidays with a more sophisticated take on the best-selling pop group’s rock-flavored, ballad-heavy catalog.
As part of the performance promotion, AEGIS recently featured on multiple billboards in different areas in Cubao and Guadalupe, Metro Manila. The renowned pop/rock group will also make interviews and guest appearances on a number of ABS-CBN TV programs, such as ASAP and Magandang Buhay.
Both their official website and all Ticketworld locations nationwide sell tickets. After the show, SSVIP ticket holders are eligible for a Meet and Greet (M&G) session. AEGIS: The Christmas Bonus Concert is co-produced by Katinko in collaboration with GNN Pop and presented by True Creators Studio, Upplause Events, and Solaire Resort Entertainment City.

The first and only world-class theme park in the Philippines, Enchanted Kingdom (EK), is bringing a touch of magic to the holidays with An Enchanted Christmas Story. The festivities kick off on Sunday, November 26, with the lighting of the Christmas tree and the debut of EK’s Giant Parol.
Renowned Pampanga lantern maker Eric Bondoc Quiwa was commissioned by EK to create the 22-foot parol that will be placed at the Agila Grounds. This and the 100 parols dotted throughout the park will serve as the focal point of the holiday celebrations at the theme park. In order to create the largest parol in the nation to date, Quiwa will share this vibrant and colorful tradition.
Furthermore, the Spaceport will host a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony including EK and Firefly Lighting CeleBrights moments for everyone to enjoy.
According to EK President and Chairman Mario Mamon, EK is committed to showcase the Filipino Christmas tradition of parols and local decorations to bring nostalgia during the holiday season. “It is no doubt that Christmas is the most festive and magical time of the year in the Philippines. As a proud Filipino company, EK is the ideal place where Filipino families can create more magical experiences and reminisce about their most enchanted Christmas stories,” Mr. Mamon further explained.
With their Christmas productions, which include the plays Christmas At The Kingdom (EK Story) and Brooklyn Diaries: Oh Paskong Maligaya (OPM), EK also plans to highlight their in-house talent. In celebration of the most delightful time of the year, Eldar the Wizard, the Royal Family, and other fictional characters will dance and prance through Enchanted Kingdom as part of Eldar’s Christmas Parade. At EK’s bandstand, guests will be serenaded with Christmas songs by P-pop group SMS and EK’s very own vocal groups, Victoria’s Way and The Kingsmen.

The R&B newcomer celebrates love “in all its beautiful complexities”
Denise Julia, a multi-talented recording artist, is influencing the direction of Filipino R&B with her first mini-album, Sweet Nothings (Chapter 1), which will be available this Friday, November 17, 2023, through Sony Music Entertainment.
The hitmaker’s seven-track album, which is tucked between easy elegance and coolness, explores the highs and lows of romantic commitment in the age of endless screen time and short attention spans. Denise Julia expresses her mind with knowledge beyond her years, imparting the information as though it were part of her own joy, sadness, and experience. Her delicate voice flutters gently above sonic flourishes.
“This album isn’t just a bunch of songs; it’s like a journey through all the different parts of love—from the exciting beginnings to the tough endings, and finally, to those sweet, lingering moments,” the NVMD artist reveals in a statement. “Sweet Nothings is like looking back at my own experiences and the stories from others that touched me. It’s like a musical trip exploring the different sides of love.”
Denise Julia masterfully combines R&B sensibilities with a contemporary blend of jazzy soundscapes, hip-hop beats, and sultry instrumentation to explore the various aspects of love, including its rough edges, meaty center, and reassuringly sweet spots. These aspects make love an experience worth exploring. “Every song talks about a different part of this feeling we all know,” says the up-and-coming music icon.
Denise Julia’s new album features production from her constant and trusted collaborators, including Joel Tracks, a prolific producer based in Nigeria; J.Greg and Duaneinsane, who played pivotal roles in bringing her vision to life; and Neo Cruz, who is responsible for making “Butterflies” a sultry number with signature smooth melodies.
Norwegian-Filipina artist and multi-instrumentalist HILLARI and acclaimed alt-R&B experimentalist Jason Dhakal also join Denise Julia on “Roster” and “Bum 2 Me,” respectively, adding an interesting dimension to the album’s delicately sparse but genuinely sophisticated sound.
There’s also the inescapable crossover hit “B.A.D.,” featuring acclaimed rapper P-Lo, whose style and flow complement Julia’s incredible vocal chops. To date, the catchy R&B jam has racked up more than 2 million streams on Spotify since its release, peaking at No. 66 and still going strong.
“Working alongside these musical geniuses was a transformative experience, offering me invaluable insights and learnings,” the R&B sensation shares. ‘Their expertise and creativity elevated the project to new heights, and I am truly grateful for the collaborative synergy that shaped the outcome.”
The album’s focus track, “Lackin’,” serves as another highlight: an airy lullaby that was inspired by one of her dreams. Denise Julia told her producers about how the dream felt like a “ghost in her mind” and that she had to immediately write the track over that ringing, familiar melody.
She adds, “I remember the pressure and excitement during the studio session, especially in the intro. This track stands out as one of my best-written pieces, capturing the raw emotion of a relationship where one person was lacking, yet I expressed the belief that the tables would turn and they’d crave my presence in return.”
Check out the Sweet Nothings (Chapter 1) track list:

Denise Julia’s debut mini album, Sweet Nothings (Chapter 1) is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.
Special thanks to Denise Julia’s manager, John Vincent Salcedo and Carissa King, the creative director for all visuals assigned to the project.
The new track serves as the third offering from their upcoming EP, ‘It Was A Moment,’ due early next year
SOS, a Filipino indie rock quintet, explores the effects of broken relationships and romantic breakups in their new song, “Please Lang,” released via Careless Music.
“Please Lang” is an emotive anthem that explores the weight of unsolved disputes and the silent, frequently unrecognized suffering they cause. It is the third song off their planned five-track EP, It Was A Moment, which is scheduled for release in early 2024.
Singer Roberto Seña claims that the guitar-driven track demonstrates the band’s introspective songwriting, which is present in most of their songs.
“It’s a sad song that focuses on what happened rather than what could have been. It’s also just good fun, really—being able to laugh or have a sense of humor while experiencing inevitable heartbreak. Eventually, the song takes a darker turn as the song settles; things come to an end, and we just have to accept it.”
Over the course of two days, Seña wrote most of the lyrics during one of their jam sessions at Bavarian Records Studio in La Union, while guitarist Andrew Panopio helped with the second half of the song. The song was produced and arranged by the members of the band, resulting in a punchy but subdued release with ‘80s pop and ’90s alt rock influences worn proudly on its sleeves.
Drummer King Puentespina shares, “I think we were slated to finish arranging another song that day, and during our lunch break, I opened a new project file wanting to jam something out. I remember laying in the chords, progression, and drums and it started morphing. I asked Andrew to go for the groove; Ram was on the keys, and everyone in the room could feel it. It just slowly brought itself together. Seña and Anjo came into the studio after one of their lunch breaks or meetings or something, and they all got excited. I remember stepping out for a meeting and dinner. I came back, and they had all the words down. It was insanely fun.”
The second single, “Please Lang,” features newcomer Ram Alonzo on keyboards. He also plays a major role in the studio, helping with mixing and mastering the song. He remembers being enthralled with the delicate melody and how the story of love and sorrow struck a profound chord with him personally.
Ram acknowledges, “I felt like it was really personal working on this song.” It was kind of hard to listen to while we were composing it because I was going through something similar to what the song is about. Masakit siya (it’s painful).”

The entertainment-lifestyle website LionhearTV is hard at work getting ready for the 9th RAWR Awards, having just celebrated its 15th anniversary in October. This yearly celebration of excellence in the dynamic showbiz sector is a testament to LionhearTV’s persistent commitment to doing so.
The RAWR Awards have evolved into a stunning show, attracting not only the enthusiastic support of PR groups and fans passionately backing their favorite nominees, but also the strong support of 250 new media practitioners (bloggers) from all over the Philippines.
The inception of the RAWR Awards traces back to 2015, an era when the blogging community was burgeoning. However, it was evident that there was a conspicuous gap in acknowledging and honoring the voices of bloggers and their ardent readers. To fill this void, LionhearTV conceived the RAWR Awards.
Year after year, the RAWR Awards are presented through the LionhearTV.net platform, aptly christened after the mighty lion, symbolizing the strength and influence these awardees hold in the entertainment sphere. These accolades are dedicated to individuals who have left an indelible mark on the industry.
In the nascent stages, the awards were exclusively organized by LionhearTV, with victors chosen by the website’s loyal readers. Over time, the voting process extended to encompass more than 100 bloggers from various regions of the Philippines, each representing a diverse niche within the bustling blogging community. Despite the vicissitudes encountered along this journey, the unwavering commitment to this cause remains steadfast, driven by the belief that this represents the collective voice of the blogging community, a voice deserving of recognition and acclaim within the broader entertainment panorama.
The RAWR Awards are divided into four principal categories: Lion, Cub, Pride, and SILOG Awards. The Cub Awards encompass nine subcategories, encompassing distinctions such as Beshie ng Taon, Favorite Bida, Favorite Kontrabida, Breakthrough Artist, Favorite Newbie, Bet na Bet na Teleserye, Song of the Year, Movie of the Year, and Digital Series. The Lion Awards feature nine categories, venerating luminaries including the Actor of the Year, Actress of the Year, Pak na Pak na Comedian, Male News Personality of the Year, Female News Personality of the Year, Love Team of the Year, Favorite Performer of the Year, Favorite TV Host, and Favorite DJ. The Pride Awards, on the other hand, encapsulate four categories, paying homage to entities such as the Radio Station of the Year, TV Station of the Year, Favorite Group, and Fan Club of the Year. Lastly, the SILOG Awards boast an impressive array of 17 categories, celebrating digital influencers and content creators, spanning domains like Art, Content Creation, Cosplay, Couples, Digital Influence, Drag, Fashion/Beauty, Food/Travel, Gaming, Health/Fitness, Influencer Families, LGBTQIA, Parenting, Podcasts, Streaming, Short-Form Vlogging, and Long-Form Vlogging.
The RAWR Awards, with a cumulative count of 31 categories, in conjunction with the SILOG Awards, featuring 17 categories, furnish the Philippine entertainment industry with an illustrious platform for appreciation and commendation.
Fans play a pivotal role in determining the victors, holding 66.66% of the voting authority. This authority is parceled into two equitable segments: 33.33% from online votes via the official website and KTX and another 33.33% from online searches conducted within LionhearTV, Dailypedia, and PH Entertainment. The remaining 33.33% is contributed by the blogging community, PR entities, and brand partners.
The RAWR Awards do more than just honor local talent; they also work to strengthen relationships with partners who have similar values and goals. With these honors, LionhearTV.net would like to express its sincere appreciation to all of the supporters who have supported the website since its launch.
The RAWR Awards website on LionhearTV is currently hosting live polls where you can cast your votes for your favorite nominees in each of their respective categories. Voting will run until 11:59 p.m. on December 4.
Raise your hand and make your voice heard in honoring the top performers in Philippine entertainment.
