Shane G is the latest in a lineage of budding Filipino singer-songwriters who have recently caught the attention of K-Pop stars.
Her inspirational self-care ballad “Loved” was featured on VLIVE, a series of streaming sessions curated and hosted by BANG CHAN of Korean boyband Stray Kids.
The Korean pop star praised the message of the song on the 131st episode of his streaming sessions, which happened last November 6, 2021, Saturday (PH time). The format of the online show focuses on championing new music and fresh discoveries from all over the world, as recommended by BANG CHAN himself and his fans.
After finding out about the clip, Shane G expressed her excitement through a Facebook post: “This one’s really SURREAL!!! Am I dreaming??? I will treasure this forever as a STAY, and as an artist. Thank you so much!”
Last month, the student-musician scored two nominations at the 34th Awit Awards for two categories: Breakthrough Artist and Favorite Female Artist on the strength of her viral single “Head Over Heels,” which has racked up more than 160 thousand streams on Spotify alone.
Shane considers being recognized by the country’s equivalent of The Grammy’s an important milestone in her promising career.
“I actually started releasing my original songs last year, and to be nominated for this year’s Awit Awards is such a huge blessing,” the young artist shares. “It’s really an overwhelming experience to the point that I still cannot believe it until now.”
Shane G has recently released the independently produced “Kapag Puwede Na,” which finds her interpreting a finely crafted romantic song that she wrote two years ago. According to Shane, it took her four hours to record “Kapag Puwede Na” because of the elaborate details that came to play: the vocal layers, the ad libs, the harmonies and the production itself. “I literally became tired after recording it but it was all worth it!”
