Singer-songwriter Paolo Sandejas has made his debut on the Billboard Philippines Soundwave stage.
Sandejas performed his viral track, “Different Shade of Blue,” which has over three million streams on Spotify. The artist is no stranger to viral hits, with his other tracks like “Sway” and “Sorry” having over millions of streams apiece.
“Different Shade of Blue” was released in January of 2022. The music video premiered in April of the same year. In the same year, Sandejas’ song, “Sorry” went viral when BTS member V sang along to it in a video and promoted it on his driving playlist.
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.”
Last week, Timmy Albert performed “roses and sunflowers” on Soundwave, while South Border singer Jay Durias joined Volumes and National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab and The Ryan Cayabyab Singers performed a medley of Filipino Christmas songs on Studios.
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.
