Manila, Philippines (August 16, 2018). 17 year-old viral rap star Shanti Dope’s flourishing artistry continues to burn bright as he brings Pinoy rap into the international scene.

As he celebrates one year in the industry, and more than 20 million views and streams for his hit song “Nadarang,” the new gen rapper-songwriter adds collaborations with international artists to the long list of achievements in his young career.

Shanti is expected to bring his A-game in on the international remix of the song ‘Crazy’ by rising American singer Mimi. He joins NomaD and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony member Krayzie Bone in the catchy hip-hop tune, also providing a unique Pinoy twist on his verse.

The song does not only feature Shanti himself as an artist, but also our very own language as he raps Tagalog on his verse. To be able to showcase the national language on a worldwide stage is a big feat for OPM artists, especially in the genre of rap, as Shanti continues to build bridges across different genres, platforms, and audiences through his music.

The rap prodigy will not only appear on this international track, but is also slated to be special a guest (together with his mentor Gloc-9) in the upcoming Ultimate hiphop OG Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert on September 5, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Mimi’s ‘Crazy (International Remix) [feat. Shanti Dope, Krayzie Bone, and NomaD]’ is now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, and Amazon

Shanti Dope and Materyal EPs are now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, and Amazon under Universal Records.

Tickets for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert are out now via SM Tickets | bit.ly/BTNH2018MNL It’s gonna be an epic hiphop party with #BTNHManila ft. Gloc-9 and Shanti Dope, made possible by Ovation Productions.

Billboard’s charts have expanded to the Philippines. Billboard Philippines (“BillboardPH”) recently premiered (June 12) the country’s first rankings reflecting local music consumption.

Using localized on-demand streaming data from global services Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube, plus download track sales from iTunes, BillboardPH’s new charts provide the most accurate representation of music popularity in the Philippines.

Leading BillboardPH’s chart offerings is the BillboardPH Hot 100, which ranks the top songs by both local and foreign acts. The Billboard Philippine Top 20, meanwhile, will contain only Filipino artists, and the Billboard PH Catalog Chart will list songs by Filipino acts that are older than three years, but still being actively streamed.

Ed Sheeran commands the No. 1 spot on the BillboardPH Hot 100 with “Shape of You,” while Bruno Mars and The Chainsmokers each place a pair of tracks each in the top 10.  Also occupying spaces in the Hot 100 top 10 are DJ Khaled‘s “I’m the One,” featuring Justin BieberQuavoChance the Rapper & Lil Wayne, at No. 3, and the current Billboard Hot 100 U.S. No. 1 hit “Despacito,” by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber, at No. 5.

The Billboard Philippine 20 is led by Inigo Pascual’s “Dahil Sa’Yo,” with singer/actress Jona holding down two spots in the top 10, at Nos. 3 and 4, with “Pusong Ligaw” and “Maghihintay Ako,” respectively. Also faring well on the local list is rock/fusion band Sud, which stands at No. 2 with “Sila.”

Billboard PH, launched in September 2016, has quickly become the premier source of music coverage in Philippines. The addition of local charts to a menu already including the U.S.-based Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200, among others, further emphasizes the site as the go-to place for Filipino music fans.  The Billboard PH charts refresh each Monday morning local time.
