Recio Examines What Self-Love Actually Means in Fresh Alt-Rap Track ‘Price O’ Love’

Music & Recording

MANILA, Philippines—Young Filipino rising artist Recio goes on a phase of self-exploration and mindless decisions in his self-penned single “Price O’ Love.” 

The alternative rap track, under Tarsier Records, talks about the struggles the singer-songwriter-producer faced in the midst of searching for something more in life, trying to fathom what self-love really means.  

“The song came to me during a time when partying and vices were a constant,” the musician explained. “It represents a shift in perspective I had when I realized that I wanted something else in my life.”

“Price O’ Love” follows Recio’s recent releases, the lo-fi track “Tired Eyes” and the alternative rock single “Know,” which will be part of his EP coming in 2022.  

Based in Manila, the new Star Magic artist is best known for his indie, lo-fi, and R&B sound. Having launched his career in 2020, he has since released his first independent project, “Music for Your Valentine”, which featured his first three tracks. Since then he has released other projects such as “Distant Lately”, which has collected over 100k streams on Spotify since its release last July.

This passion for music also led him to launch 1108 Collective, an organization that aims to bring to light the talented artists around the Katipunan area, home to his college campus.

As an artist, Recio aims to bring a new sound to the Philippines—and eventually share his music to the rest of the world. In 2021, Recio signed with Tarsier Records to team up for his upcoming EP for completion in early 2022. The young musician then kicked off his streak with his first single under the label titled “Tired Eyes”, quickly followed by “Know,” both of which he wrote, produced and sang on his own in the midst of the quarantine.
