Thrilled to share a new chapter in our band's journey. We are now officially part of @universalrecordsph! We just wanna extend our warmest gratitude to the people who made all of this possible. Sir @bbsofficial of @soupstarent for believing in us since we were little kids in the scene and of course to Ms. @kathleendygo with the whole UR team for welcoming us to the family. We are deeply honored for this opportunity and we're very excited to share our new music that we've been working hard on for the past few years. To all our supporters who stayed since day 1. You know who you are. Malapit na ilabas ang latest single and album namin. Para sa inyo 'to. Salamat sa inspirasyon, Gracians. 💙 TO GOD BE THE GLORY! #gracenote2019 #universalrecordsph #soupstar ••••::•••• 📸 @rjville

Speaking of Spotify, now’s the perfect time for new users to get Spotify Premium. Not only will they get access to 50 million on-demand and ad-free tracks as well as access to 450,000 podcast titles, but they’ll get them free of charge for the first three months of their subscription. That’s two months longer than its previous offer of 30 days for free! This first three months for free offer is always-on/not limited time, and will roll out across Spotify Premium plans globally, which includes Individual, Student (where available), Family (where available), and Duo (where available) in the coming months.

Contemporary artist Dex Fernandez, film director Treb Monteras II, musicians IV of Spades, and fashion-forward siblings Daryl and André Chang are creative Filipino geniuses—so much that the impact they’ve made in their respective fields inspired The Reno Collective, a video series launched by Oppo in time for the release of their Oppo Reno and Reno 10x Zoom cameras. Each video tells the story of their creative journeys and how the power of technology helped further their artistic visions. For some creative (and life!) inspiration, check out the vids on

This just in, Netflix subscribers! The sequel to To All The Boys I Loved Before (entitled To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You) is premiering February 12, 2020—just before Valentine’s Day! The third film—To All The Boys: Always And Forever, Lara Jean— is already in production! Who else can’t wait to see Lana Condor, Noah Centineo, and Jordan Fisher back together!?
