Asia’s Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan makes global waves as she lands a coveted feature on Spotify’s EQUAL Global Playlist, as seen sky-high on the most prominent billboard in Times Square, New York City, positioned right above where the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.
“My heart is full. I don’t know what I did to deserve these people, achievements, and moments but I am grateful, Lord,” said KZ on Instagram, sharing photos of recent special moments in her life, including a snapshot of the Times Square billboard. “When I find myself doubting the path and questioning my abilities, I will look at these photos to remember that Your plans are always greater than mine.”
Unveiled last November 16, Spotify’s EQUAL feature aims to empower female artists from around the world and increase their music’s visibility. KZ’s newest single under Tarsier Records, “11:59,” amplifies her presence in the music industry as she is selected as the cover artist for Spotify Philippines’ EQUAL playlist for the month of November.
Launched last month, the soulful track “11:59” landed on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists in 10 territories, including Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Gulf, Korea, and the Philippines. KZ was also the top seed on keystone Spotify PH editorial playlists Tatak Pinoy and OPM Rising, her bold, red-clad likeness also gracing the latter as the featured cover artist. To date, the single has amassed 150,000 streams and counting on Spotify alone.
“11:59” was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Luigie “LUGO” Gonzalez with additional composition by Traci Hale, America Jimenez and Dennis Matosky. It was released internationally by Tarsier Records as part of ABS-CBN Music’s continued effort to showcase Filipino talents on the global stage.
