Singer-songwriter Johnoy Danao makes his debut on Billboard Philippines Soundwave with his iconic, heart-wrenching song, “Ikaw At Ako” (You And Me).
“Ikaw At Ako” was first released in 2010 as part of his album, Dapithapon (Sunset). It has since garnered over 17 million streams on Spotify, with 5.4 million views on YouTube. His episode on Soundwave follows pop artists Paolo Sandejas and Timmy Albert, where they performed their own viral hits “Different Shade of Blue” and “roses and sunflowers,” respectively.
Danao recently released his first ever live album titled Johnoy Danao Live, which features live and string quartet versions of “Ikaw At Ako” and other hits such as “Dapithapon” and “Right Time.”
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.
