These OPM artists should be part of your Spotify playlist

Feb 14, 2021 0 comments

The pandemic has been raging for a year now and needless to say, it’s had some really bad effects on every industry. Like the music industry, in particular. With large gatherings banned until further notice, arenas, clubs, and performance halls are suddenly silent and empty.
But like with many things in life, not even a pandemic can stop music from flourishing. Concerts and gigs have been done online and, despite the less than ideal circumstances, new music continues to keep flowing through speakers and earphones.

We’re always encouraged to support local these days in an effort to boost our economy. And as we eat in restaurants, travel to local tourist destinations, and buy locally made products, let’s not forget to listen to our own music too.
To help you in case you’re not sure where to start, here are some OPM artists that you should be on the lookout for this year. We’ve even included their recent releases that you should totally stream on Spotify!

Alisson Shore 

Emmanuel Sambayan, aka Alisson Shore is an R&B beatmaker and producer whose musicality knows no genre. 

Alisson started his music career as the vocalist and lead guitarist of a metal band but has now grown to produce music that ranges from Rnb to sophisticated pop.

Leanne & Naara are havens sent, that is for sure. The soul duo from Manila gained notoriety with their easy-to-listen music and smooth vocal blending. Their singles Who's Gonna Love You and Choose You definitely deserves a spot in your playlist
