This Filipino Singer Just Got Featured in Rolling Stone Magazine

One of our very own just got featured in American magazine Rolling Stone for their article on international hits they’re loving right now!

The article, titled “Here Are 10 Songs From International Hitmakers You Should Have On Your Radar,” featured singer-songwriter Zack Tabudlo and his track “Binibini” which sat at the top of local Spotify and YouTube Trending charts for several weeks following its release on April 12, 2021.

“Teenage Zack Tabudlo is crafting poignant records about heartbreak that belie his young age. His single “Binibini” — Tagalog for “young woman” — is about the helplessly joyous feeling of falling in love, and its universally understood musings have placed the song firmly at the top of the Filipino Spotify charts for several weeks,” the article began.

“[The] opportunity to get in front of a global audience is a leap forward in a career that’s been bubbling since he was 12 years old. Tabudlo’s soaring soprano voice brings to mind Bruno Mars and Adam Levine, the latter of which he imitated on the way to a deep run on the Philippines’ version of The Voice Kids,” it continued.

The article also mentioned the official music video, which was directed by Dan Villegas and starred Andrea Brillantes and Seth Fedelin. “The track’s music video is a departure from its lyrics by showing the other side of this meteoric kind of love: When it fizzles,” it added.

“Tabudlo recently collaborated with the producer James TW to create an English version of “Binibini” that is sure to bring his heartfelt messages to an ever-wider audience.”

Zack then took to his Instagram account to gush over the feature and to express his gratitude to everyone who has supported him from the beginning.

“I’m crying again. My heart is beating so fast. Your boy just got featured as one of the international artists in a freaking Rolling Stone article,” he said in all caps. “Thank you all so much for your love as always. To the team behind me and to each and every one of you who support my music.”
