Star Music artist Angela Ken released her self-titled debut album that is filled with her teenage experience, friendship and self-love in this digital age.
Writing “Angela Ken” reminded the rising singer-songwriter of her humble beginnings as an artist.
“Kailangan mong balikan palagi kung saan ka nagsimula, kung ano yung naging pundasyon bakit ka na nasa sitwasyon mo ngayon at bakit ganito karami ang sumusuporta sa ‘yo,” Angela said during the mediacon for her album.
The album consists of two brand-new songs, “Buti Pa Noon” and “Payapa Lang,” and six previously released singles, including “Ako Naman Muna,” “Dagdag na Alaala,” “It’s Okay Not To Be Okay” and “Sila Pa Rin.”
“Akala Maling Akala” and “Kontrol” from the soundtracks of “2 Good 2 Be True” and “Click, Like, Share,” respectively, are also part of the album produced by ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo, who discovered Angela through TikTok.
Aside from the release of her debut album, Angela recently marked another milestone as she took home two music accolades—Best Inspirational Song for “Ako Naman Muna” at the Awit Awards 2022 and Best Secular Song for “It’s Okay Not To Be Okay” at the 44th Catholic Mass Media Awards.
