We Got tackles romantic relationships gone astray on reggae tune “LDR”

Eight-piece reggae outfit We Got has finally dropped their new single just in time for summer.

Released under Sony Music Philippines, “LDR” is an easygoing tropical tune that shows how cruel a long-distance affair could be most of the time.

Punctuated by offbeat rhythms, syncopated bass lines, and punchy horns, the song cuts through the emotional core with its realistic take on relationships gone astray.

In a collective statement, We Got shares how “LDR” managed to tackle themes that center on trust, temptation, and eventually, lost love. “We have observed that this situation keeps happening over and over. We made this song not to raise more hurt feelings, but to help them realize that there’s more to life than dwelling on lost relationships.”

“LDR” was produced by Raymund Marasigan, who has worked with the crossover act on numerous occasions, particularly on their previously released tunes “Ligaya,” a cover of The Eraserheads’ beloved ‘90s hit, and “Lihim Na Pagtingin,” an original which has amassed more than a hundred thousand streams on Spotify alone.

The band considers working with the acclaimed rock icon as one of the best things that happened to them individually, and as a band. “From his years of experience in the music industry, he was able to share his techniques to make our songs more unique.”

“LDR” was recorded at Kodama Studios with Shinji Tanaka at the helm of mixing and mastering duties, and Hazel Pascua serving as the track’s sound engineer. It will be part of an upcoming record to be released soon via Sony Music Philippines and Soupstar Music.

We Got’s latest single “LDR” is out now on all digital platforms worldwide.



7-Eleven Makes Bank Transactions Convenient With 320 Cash-Recycing ATMs

Now you don’t need to travel far to your bank’s ATM whenever you need to deposit or withdraw cash —you can do your cash withdrawal and balance inquiry ATM transactions at 7-Eleven stores in Metro Manila and Cavite starting this March.

This convenience is made possible by Philippine Seven Corporation (PSC), the exclusive licensor of 7-Eleven in the Philippines, in partnership with Pito AxM Platform, Inc. (PAPI), a Philippine subsidiary of Seven Bank, Ltd. of Japan (Seven Bank).

The ATMs in 7-Eleven, operated by PAPI, are cash-recycling ATMs, which means customers can withdraw or deposit cash in real-time with any of its partner banks. Customers can now withdraw cash while the deposit functionality of the ATMs will be activated in the near future. The ATMs also have a unique feature of adapting the customer interface screen to that of the partner bank and thus providing a familiar, easy-to-use interface for users.
As of this publication, BDO Unibank account holders can withdraw cash and perform balance inquiries free of charge from the ATMs in 7-Eleven stores. Other bank account holders, through BANCNET, can also do withdrawal and balance inquiry transactions subject to ATM fees charged by their banks. PAPI plans to expand the number of partner banks in the near future to allow more convenient and cost-efficient banking services to more customers.

By the first week of March, customers can already conduct their bank transactions in more than thirty (30) 7-Eleven stores in NCR. PAPI and PSC aim to install ATMs in at least 320 stores by the end of the first half of 2021. This number will gradually increase throughout the year, with the end goal of covering the majority of 7-Eleven stores in the future.

Seven Bank, which operates more than 25,000 ATMs in Japan, established PAPI in April 2019 to promote its ATM business in the country. In February 2020, PAPI struck a business alliance with PSC, intending to install, operate, and maintain ATMs at 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines.

PSC operates the largest convenience store network in the country. It has 2,978 stores in the Philippines as of December 31, 2020.

“Our long-term partnership with Regal Entertainment is hinged on providing entertainment as well as significance in the ideas and themes that we air,” Cignal TV Inc.

Die Beautiful (March 6) follows the story of Trisha, a transgender, who dies during a beauty pageant. In this massive hit by Director Jun Lana, viewers are treated to a heartwarming movie that takes a closer look at the issues that confront a transgender woman beautifully played by Paolo Ballesteros.

So Connected (March 7) by Director Jason Paul Laxamana gives a take on fate and destiny in this film that stars Janella Salvador and Jameson Blake. Trisha, a struggling waitress, buys a phone from a black market seller. Unknown to her, Karter, the owner of the stolen phone, still has access to the device and is trying to locate her.

Up next in April, gather with your barkada and get your popcorn ready as you bundle up for friendship-themed films that are sure to make you celebrate friendship. As the month of new beginnings embark, the theme ‘Barkada, Old and New,’ is best suited to reunite with old pals, start afresh and leave hard feelings behind.

Are you more into heavy drama? Does the line “Walang himala!” ring a bell? Is the Shake, Rattle, and Roll series your cup of tea? Or does a powerhouse cast get you hooked more than anything? All these themes and more await your welcome in the months to come.

COO and Vice President of Regal Entertainment Inc., Marie Roselle Y. Monteverde, suggested that making its viewership aware of the things happening around the community is effectively delivered through films.
