Metrobeats is Metroscene's way of highlighting the finest local music from our radar. Below we've broken down our list of our favorite songs from our favorite local artists from different genres. So whether you're into Hip Hop, House, Indie Rock, Disco, or Pop Music, or you have a diverse musical taste, you can find the newest #Metrobeats below. This time around, we've compiled new releases to accompany you on your musical journey through your "yearning era." *winks* 

Orasa by Dilaw

 
After the success of their viral song "Uhaw," the local band Dilaw is once again making waves with their latest release, "Orasa." This song captures the essence of yearning, particularly now that the rains have begun to fall. It serves as a poignant reminder of the people you hold dear, making you yearn for their presence even more. With lyrics like "Ilang gabi na rin laging gising at 'di na mapakali, tabihan at kumutan ka sa paghimbing" — oh, the longing for someone to love becomes all too real.

SMP by dwta

 
I believe this list perfectly captures the yearning spirit of the times, especially with our next song on the radar: "SMP" by the talented Bicolana singer-songwriter, dwta, is no exception. As September rolls in, the excitement builds because, you know what it means! Christmas is just around the corner, and we can't help but think of the OG "samahan ng malalamig ang Pasko." Where are you all at? "SMP" by dwta truly evokes feelings of hope for a warm and cozy Christmas, even in September.

Kita kita by 7th

 
When you've fallen for someone's eyes, but they don't know you yet? Well, the band 7th, composed of Jearvel Ann as the lead vocalist, Brendan Grey as the lead guitarist and vocalist, Von Acosta as the keyboardist, and Alexandra Arriesgado as the drummer, has the perfect song for that moment. With lyrics like "Kita kita, ayoko nang magpanggap/ Kita kita, mula sa simula/ Sana'y makita mo rin, nakita na kita," this song really sees you in your yearning era.

Say My Name by Deny

 
This playlist is taking a wild turn with "Say My Name" by Deny! "I wanna do the things I never tried with ya' / I wanna hear you say my name, won't ya'? / Explore my limitations on this bed, yeah, with ya'" If your yearning goes beyond just affection and extends to physical closeness, when all you want is to be with that special someone and snuggle up, this song absolutely hits the spot. Thank you, Deny for this yearning anthem.

Ako Nalang Kasi by Zack Tabudlo

 
As we continue to be listed to his songs like "Binibini," "Nangangamba," and "Yakap," the singer-songwriter Zack Tabudlo is our tour guide in this yearning journey with his latest track, "Ako Nalang Kasi." For all those experiencing those 'ako na lang kasi' moments, look no further – this song is yours. I mean, "Hawakan mo lang aking mga kamay / Hindi mo na kailangan pang maghintay / Andito na 'ko, 'di kailangan magtago Ako na lang kasi ang ibigin mo?" is just — same, Zack. Same.

Balang araw by jikamarie

 
To help us break free from our delulus expectations that won't be trululus, Jikamarie's "Balang araw" feels incredibly real! Let's be frank, being in your yearning era can be quite exhausting, and there are moments when you simply need to pause because eventually, things will fall into place. Always remember, "Balang araw mapapagod ka ring saktan ang 'yong sarili / Ang 'yong puso ay dudugo ngunit gagaling rin." Wishing everyone a contented yearning season!
