Billboard Philippines’ Discover artist Ena Mori made her Billboard Philippines Soundwave debut on this week’s episode of the show.

The Filipino-Japanese artist performed “RUNAWAY HOLIDAY” from her critically acclaimed album, DON’T BLAME THE WILD ONE! The album, which was released last year, was named as NME Asia’s Best Asian Album of 2022. The record is also nominated for Album of the Year at this year’s Awit Awards.

She was also featured on Volumes, Billboard Philippines’ podcast show. Ena Mori opened up about her journey from being a classical pianist to being a pop musician as well as how she continues to challenge herself creatively.

Soundwave is the media platform’s show that showcases the trending songs in today’s music industry. The other flagship programs of Billboard Philippines’ media channels include Studios, which features reimagined versions of an artist’s biggest hits, and Volumes, a podcast that goes behind the music and highlights the stories of different Filipino artists.

“Soundwave puts the spotlight on carefully selected artists and songs chosen by the Billboard Philippines team. This platform serves as a prime stage for up-and-coming artists, potential chart-toppers, and new hits to be heard,” associate producer Matthew Ong explains. “Drawing inspiration from the aesthetic of the brand’s cover, this platform offers artists a chance to be heard and seen under the global Billboard branding, providing them with a prominent showcase.”

Episodes of Soundwave are uploaded on TikTok every Monday. Episodes of Volumes are uploaded on Spotify every Wednesday, while episodes of Studios premiere on YouTube every second and last Friday of the month.
