The Takeover Issue

As history now sees him as the man behind the anthems in a time of isolation and distance, ultimately inducting him in the pantheon of Filipino music-making greats, young powerhouse Zack Tabudlo’s promise and purposeful commitment grows stronger and more significant than ever—telling stories of the people, one record-breaking hit at a time.

In a time of uncertainty, Tabudlo unearthed an impeccable body of work that captured the heart and soul of an ever-evolving music-consuming audience. Now, high off the fumes of his well-received 14-track debut record, “Episode”, that houses his now-iconic, career-making hit “Binibini”, Rank Magazine catches up with the nineteen-year-old Island Records Philippines hitmaker as he relishes on his newfound seat atop OPM’s most promising discoveries and, with all bets placed on him, we see him raring to flex his creative muscles even more to break new ground on his growing stake in the music scene.

“Especially now, during this pandemic, it is very important for music as a platform to reach out to people who are lost during these times. I feel like reaching to them, connecting to them with my music makes it a platform for them to lean on to and that makes me feel so honored and grateful that I get to inspire a lot of people through my music.”

Enjoy the issue!
