October 9, 2020 (Los Angeles, CA) — Diamond-certified, Grammy-nominated, Global Superstar Bebe Rexha teams up with Doja Cat for a stormy new single and video, “Baby, I’m Jealous,” that explores the insecurities of living in a digital age. Slinking synth work and a shivering bassline set the stage for an intoxicating pop bop about the perils of scrolling endlessly through social media.

Rexha wrote, and sings, about the negativity the modern era often imposes on people—envy, rage, self-doubt—but the single isn’t dark and brooding. “Baby, I’m Jealous” is funky, playful, and confident, even before Doja Cat sideswipes the song with a few gleeful bars aimed squarely at society’s expectations for women (“Waste trainer for a tinier waist / But I can’t help if I like the way food taste”). According to Rexha, it’s all about taking ownership of those complex emotions.

“‘Baby, I’m Jealous’ is a song I wrote about embracing my insecurities,” Rexha explains. “It’s about the way social media has heightened my jealousy which can affect how I feel about myself. We are constantly flooded with the highlights of other people’s lives, and at times I find myself comparing my worth and beauty to others. It’s part of the human process to experience jealousy—ultimately, this is an anthem to embrace those feelings as a form of empowerment.”

Today, Rexha also shares a stunning technicolor video for the single, directed by frequent award-winning collaborator Hannah Lux Davis, which features actors and influencers Charli D’Amelio, Nikita Dragun, and Avani Gregg. Rexha’s siren red hair bursts off the screen and the musical wonder woman’s playful lyrics come to life in the colorful fantastical clip.

“Baby, I’m Jealous” is Rexha’s first release of 2020, but it arrives hot on the heels of the news that her #1 hit “Meant to Be” with Florida Georgia Line, was certified Diamond (10x Platinum) by the RIAA. In 2018, Rexha released her debut album Expectations, which featured that hit alongside another Platinum single, “I’m a Mess.” Rexha had a busy 2019 as well, releasing a string of ecstatic cuts, including the simmering “Last Hurrah,” the swooning “Not 20 Anymore,” and her euphoric feature on the Chainsmokers’ “Call You Mine.” “Baby, I’m Jealous” with Doja Cat is just the first taste of the thrilling new music Rexha has on the horizon. This comes off the news of Rexha newly signing with SAL&CO management. She’s set to release a new album in early 2021, so stay tuned.

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.

Your ultimate go-to for the world’s most popular charts, videos, events, and music news is now in the Philippines! Since the 1950’s, Billboard has been the authority in the music industry. It is the standard record chart in the United States (and eventually internationally) for global singles.  To celebrate Billboard’s presence here in the Philippines, #BillboardPH and Ayala Malls are holding three events this month called #BBPHPlaySound: The BillboardPH Music Trip. The first one was held last May 13-14 at Trinoma Activity Center. There will be another one this weekend at Alabang Town Center.

Live Coverage of Blogtalk with MJ Racadio with #FrancestheReviewer

Luckily for the #BlogTalkWithMJRacadio Team, we were invited to celebrate and witness the ribbon cutting ceremony last Saturday, May 20 at the Glorietta Activity Center.

From Blog Diaries to Red Carpet in Hollywood
A true confessions of MJ Racadio

Part 1
A typical day, reading like a book worm and writing until my eyes turned red. This how I called it studying like no tomorrow. While in school for business, maintaining a good GPA was not a joke. Guess what? Drinking caffeine kept me awake or alert most of the time. The exciting and interesting part of the journey was writing and recording blog diaries to relieve stress kinda like a venting machine so to speak. Little did I know this confession turned into more serious matter.
Absolutely stunned, with the results of creating something bigger than I thought. Asked myself if can invite someone who are influential in any field, and interview them. Perhaps every audio recording serve as motivation or inspiration whomever can listen to my little podcasting. First ever episode focused on how to stay fit with special guest from Singapore her name was Charissa,(Fitness Mentor/Nurse) the feedback was good. Just kept going, invited more guests within a week of May this year. Most invitations obliged to be part of the show. Kinda overwhelmed with all the responses imagine influential people said yes to invitations in a matter of days or better in few hours.

From Broadway PR to Hollywood journalist, the producer of the Talk and Billboard Charts Producer. Decided to create a simple vision which is empower, inspire, and one person at a time. The most exciting part was meeting people whom I’ve interviewed. Kinda like a dream, first encounter with influential people in Hollywood was amazing experienced. In particular, Janet Nepales was warmed and very personable. We went to a coffee shop by Los Angeles Financial District, the funny part was when the barista misspelled her name to Shannon, we were laughing out loud. She said “Why you all dressed up” replied “I’m going to do some interview with you to celebrate Season 1 of #Blogtalk”. Told her would like to celebrate it with her. Surprisingly, toured me around downtown and took me to a very nice Italian Restaurant. The place packed with people, the hostess sat us down in her usual seating. Felt like I was a celebrity that day because Janet only interviews the biggest movie star on the planet. Spending time with her really made my show credibility went off the roof. After two months, Season 2 of #Blogtalk,
