“I’m really excited for this one ‘coz of how different it is from my last release GO TO HELL!!! This track is leaning more into the dark dance pop side - a genre I’m well known for. I can’t wait to perform this song live soon! I wrote this song with LA-based songwriter Krizia Carbonell and I remember us just coming up with the concept of empowerment and not caring about what anyone else thinks in reference to the ‘dancing with no heart’ line. While the line “glowing in the dark” metaphorically symbolizes just me being an untouchable magical force or in general as someone who possesses power. It is a song that I wrote about a phase in my life where I finally decided to move on and not care about what anyone thought of me. For now I’m focusing on my upcoming plans for next year as we prepare to drop more singles and hopefully I get to perform all my new songs live soon too! A lot of my fans would agree with me on this, but I honestly can’t wait to drop another unreleased song of mine called Skin2Skin. It’s also produced by De’La and written by me in LA last year. I’ve been performing it at all my live shows this year and it organically built its own fanbase on social media! So, wait for it!” ~Lesha, Gen Z Rising Rockstar and Femme Ingenious
Monday, November 27, 2023
Just when you least expect it, Gen Z’s rising rockstar and femme ingenious Lesha has recently dropped another surefire ‘hit’ single entitled ‘no heart’. Expect this new track to offer fresh spins. Of course, coming from the fearless singer/songwriter Lesha; no doubt she’s going to dish out a different kind of vibe.
“no heart” is an anthem of empowerment and resilience, where the act of dancing symbolizes the ability to move forward and embrace life with a fearless heart. It embodies the essence of danceable dark pop with its combination of catchy beats and lyrics about self- discovery, and unapologetically being oneself.
You can also say that no heart is quite different from her previous tracks. For one, this is a very bouncy danceable anthem. The track that you listen to when you want to boost up your energy and confidence. Lesha has also incorporated different vocal chops into the song’s production working with her US based producer De’La and LA-based songwriter Krizia Carbonell.
It has always been her trademark for all the songs to share her feelings and innermost thoughts. For “no heart” lyrics, she expressed her own imperfections in the context of a troubled relationship. Her self realization led her to make amends that she wasn’t as bad as she was made to believe. While the idea of ‘dancing’ as symbolism used in the song, reflects a sense of liberation or living without holding back and just allowing herself to have control over how she moves through life.
Lesha can only attest how “no heart” has made a great impact on her life.
2023 is almost ending but Lesha remains unstoppable in her pace moving forward and achieving a whole lot more.
As a true believer of manifestation, Lesha shares what’s on her mind lately and what she is manifesting to happen sooner than you think.

SB19 is hailed as the Kings of P-pop. Their most recent hit, Gento, has climbed the top of the charts and its dance challenge has been performed by local and foreign artists alike.
Hanabishi Appliances recently gave away VIP tickets to SB19’s “One Zone” fanmeet held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. It also raffled off exclusive merchandise and products in its official Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok accounts.
Through its My Hanabias contest, the leading appliance brand matched the emoji that each SB19 member represented with its best-selling appliances.
Stell’s emoji is the strawberry and was matched with the Hanabishi blender. Josh has the oden for his emoji and was matched with the Hanabishi griller. Pablo’s is the hotdog which corresponded with the air fryer, Ken the chicken which corresponded with the turbo broiler, and Justin the corn which corresponded with the multi-cooker grill.
Hanabishi gave away these appliances to lucky A’TINs who expressed their support for their biases.
On the day of the fanmeet, Hanabishi also handed out PhP200 vouchers in its booth.
“We are excited to be a part of this celebration and we would like to thank all the fans who joined our contest and help us trend on social media. Most of our ticket winners had their VIP experience for the first time, and we are very happy that they got to see their idols up-close. SB19 is a world-class talent that showcases the best of the Filipino and we are behind them in their journey of conquering the world.” ~Cherish Ong-Chua, VP for Marketing and Finance of Hanabishi Appliances
Ong-Chua shared that the brand hopes to have more collaborations with the group.
During the fanmeet, the group performed the song as their opening act. They then interacted with their loyal followers through different activities and surprised them with the launch of the official music video of Freedom.
SB19 has received several awards and performed to sold-out shows during the last five years. This year, it embarked on its Pagtatag world tour, which took the group to several cities in the Philippines, the United States, and Canada. They will be commencing the tour this November in Singapore, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates.

Open a #SaveUp account by downloading the BPI App or through the BPI Flagship store in Lazada. Alternatively, open a #MySaveUp account from the GSAVE menu of the GCASH app and discover a world of possibilities.
BPI's commitment to innovation, convenience, and customer centricity is helping more Filipinos achieve their financial goals through various digital channels. Starting in 2021, BPI’s #SaveUp allows customers to open a savings account via the BPI App without the need to visit a branch.
Building on that success, in 2022, BPI launched BPI #MySaveUp, which enables customers to open a savings account through the popular online wallet, GCash. This year, BPI has taken things to the next level with a brand new channel and partnership with Lazada, one of the biggest e-commerce platforms in Southeast Asia. With the new BPI Flagship store, users can easily "add to cart" and open a savings account, #SaveUp, along with other BPI products.
“Through these initiatives, BPI is empowering Filipinos with the ease and convenience of managing their finances anytime, anywhere through the various channels that cater to their unique banking needs. All it takes is 5 minutes and 1 ID.” ~Asi Ruiz, BPI Deposits Product Head

Despite the digital savings landscape nowadays heavily focusing on unprecedented high interest rates to attract depositors, BPI pioneered a different approach; one that is more sustainable yet still rewarding and affordable.
In 2022, the Bank launched a rewards program exclusively available for its digital savings products. The promotion concluded earlier this year, and two newly acquired BPI digital accountholders, Anne Imperial and Anne Guiritan, not only benefited from a convenient and easy-to-manage digital savings account but also won life-changing grand raffle prizes. Imperial drove home a brand-new Kia Stonic Style Edition, while Guiritan won an Avida Vireo Studio condo unit.
“BPI made saving more exciting for me as I was also looking forward to participating in the program and winning prizes. My #SaveUp account inspires me to enjoy life while working hard and saving harder.” ~Ann Collin Imperial, Kia Winner
This year, in celebration of the bank’s 172nd anniversary, BPI also waived the maintaining balance fee for the BPI #SaveUp and #MySaveUp accounts, making saving more affordable and convenient for its digital clients.
Our vision is to make banking more inclusive, and encourage more and more Filipinos to start the habit of saving. And with all these efforts to provide accessible, relevant, and rewarding banking services to more Filipinos, BPI has already opened more than 1 million digital savings accounts, demonstrating our agility in meeting the ever-evolving needs of customers, and the number continues to grow,’’ said Ruiz.
