Tabudlo’s post came with a screenshot of the said article, showing his photo alongside several other international artists.
The Rolling Stone piece, headlined “Here Are 10 Songs From International Hitmakers You Should Have on Your Radar, was published also only yesterday.
The article’s author Kwasi Boadi noted that for Tabudlo, “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,” the author said.
The magazine pointed out that Tabudlo also released an English version of “Binibini” in collaboration with producer James TW, “that is sure to bring his heartfelt messages to an ever-wider audience.”
Joining Tabudlo on the list are international artists Rimon (Netherlands), Griff (United Kingdom), Ash Island (South Korea), Babygirl (Canada), Abhilasha Sinha (India), Schmyt (Germany), November Ultra (France), Rebecca (Brazil) and Julia Pośnik (Poland).
Tabudlo’s “Binibini” topped local Spotify and YouTube Trending charts for several weeks following its release on April 12. Tabudlo’s song, along with his other hit “Nangangamba,” also entered the Spotify Viral charts of five foreign countries, namely Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.
Its Dan Villegas-directed music video starring Andrea Brillantes and Seth Fedelin has, meanwhile, gained over 21 million views as of this writing. /ra
