In the first week of August, Julie Anne San Jose released a new album she calls Breakthrough. Much like the international pop singer, Julie Anne’s album soared into the #1 spot only minutes after its release.

 

Breakthrough lives up to its name and was the #1 album on the iTunes Philippines All Genre Chart in only 30 minutes of its release. You might even say this is expected because of this singer’s impressive following.

3. Filipino Indie Artists are Still Here

Aside from the surprise release of Unique Salonga’s album, a lot of other local artists have also been releasing their own songs independently.

 

Here’s one of our favorite soulful indie releases on Spotify this month. It’s a special one-track album, and we’re the first ones to publish the lyrics online just for you!

 

 

Still Here Lyrics (Hero Mauricio ft. Laika Maninang)

I wish you told me

I wish you’d hold me

I wish you’d tell me everything

‘Cause now it’s nothing

I was just dreamin’

And now all the songs we used to sing

 

Are left at nothing

And now I’m just tremblin’

I’m just a girl who likes to dream

A little bit louder

A little prouder

Than all the things she’s seen

 

CHORUS

Won’t you give me your love

Wasn’t I but enough

I have told you everything

And maybe I wasn’t the woman you loved

I didn’t tell you everything

But I’m still here

I’m still here

You even showed

The ring

 

I should’ve told you

I should’ve known to

Keep up with your heartbeat

Now I lay like a deadbeat

 

Touch of your fingers

Now I’m nothing but nerves

And these lies

Now I cry

Am I getting out here alive

 

CHORUS

Won’t you give me your love

Wasn’t I but enough

I’d choose you above all things

And maybe I wasn’t the woman you loved

I didn’t tell you everything

And I’m still here

I’m still here

I’m still here

 

I was a liar

Gave into fire

I blame my father

But it was just a cover

I just don’t know me

The way that you do

I couldn’t stop lyin’

And now you’re gone too

 

CHORUS

Won’t you give me your love

Wasn’t I but enough

I’d choose you above all things

And maybe I wasn’t the woman you loved

I didn’t tell you everything

And I’m still here I’m still here

I’m still here

I’m still here

 

But now you’ve tossed

The ring.

I lost the ring.
