Rock singer-songwriter Rico Blanco has released the third single off his solo debut disc Your Universe, under Warner Music Phils.
The infectious, modern pop/rock track "Antukin" highlights Rico's traditionally uncanny knack to tug at the heartstrings of everyday Pinoys and their sentiments. After a double salvo of hits off the abovementioned disc, namely 2008's grand rock epic "Yugto" and the catchy chart-topper "Your Universe," Rico shows no signs of slowing down as "Antukin" is now enjoying the top spot on nationwide radio and even on local music channel giant MYX. Truly, the feat speaks for itself, as not only the fans are aware of the artist/musician's knack for creating definite classics in the OPM world.
But that's not all that's rocking the world of friends and fans of Rico, as the music video of his third single, directed by Treb Monteras, is enjoying heavy airplay on local music channels. Antukin is also garnering a massive number of views online with its concept of showing a looser side of Blanco.
Rico's home label, Warner Music Philippines, is now preparing for the Southeast Asia release of Your Universe, which will feature new songs for fans abroad and foreign music enthusiasts.
Rico's "universe" is still a busy one, having recently embarked on various promotional tours around the Philippines for the album, oft-being the main highlight and/or taking the honors of being opener and finale for the biggest gigs in the country.
He participated in the 2008 NU107 Rock Awards, MYX MO 2008 and the MTV Music Summit 2008 (where he was also named the official spokesperson for the year) among a prestigious line of others into the following year.
The former vocalist of Rivermaya has been conquering neighboring countries in Asia, having most recently visited Singapore where he wowed thousands of people at the lavish DXO Colours By The Bay at the Esplanade Mall last April 25, 2009. Indeed, music fans all over are raring to hear the man behind OPM's biggest rock hits like "214," "Awit Ng Kabataan" and "Umaaraw, Umuulan."
