Another OPM icon has come home to Star Music.
After 10 years, OPM rap icon Gloc-9 is finally releasing his comeback album with the record label titled “Sukli,” for which he also served as the overall producer.
“I’m excited for all the things that I can do now that I’m back with my Star Music family. ‘Sukli’ is an album that proves writing songs is still my dream come true. I am happy that my fans, who continue to support me, will hear the new songs I made,” said Gloc-9.
The album’s carrier single “Hoy!,” whose music video was recently released, is about the Filipino spirit and resilience despite trying times.
“I have laid out more stories here about my fellow Filipinos, along with new music and the voices of some artists I respect. Like my previous albums, this album is about the day-to-day experience of our kababayans,” he shared.
Gloc-9’s music, often socially conscious and relevant, has definitely made a mark on listeners and Filipinos. He has received over 40 awards from different award-giving bodies in the country, including Awit Awards, MYX Music Awards, PMPC Star Awards for Music, Guillermo Mendoza Box-Office Entertainment Awards, and FAMAS Awards.
“Sukli” also features collaborations with artists Gloc-9 says he admires. He teams up with KZ on “Industriya,” with Ebe Dancel on “Ang Probinsyano,” and with Mayonaisse’s Monty Macalino on “Sagwan.”
Completing the track list are “Barya Lang,” “Payag,” ang two versions of “Sukli” – the original version that features Maya and the acoustic version that features Miro Valera.
“Sukli” will be streamed exclusively on Spotify beginning May 29. Gloc-9 will also be officially launching the album, along with special guests, on June 5 at Market! Market!, where fans can first get the physical copy of the album. “Sukli” will be available on online stores worldwide on June 5, and at all record bars nationwide on June 6.
