It doesn’t matter how you got to know Rico Blanco. He’s been a well-loved artist for many years – starting from his time in Rivermaya, then going off to become a solo artist and releasing one of the albums that defined a generation, Your Universe, and now – while still an active singer/songwriter, also quite the Tiktok sensation himself. Anything he does, people seem to love.

For the past couple of months, Rico Blanco has been working on this project with Viva Records, called Rico Blanco Songbook. This is exciting in many ways. First, because we get to hear a reimagining of some of his greatest hits.

And second, because they got some of our favorite OPM artists on board with the project. One of the recently announced artists that will be featured in this project is none other than the Popstar Royalty herself, Sarah Geronimo.
Just last year, Sarah G. released her rendition of Rico Blanco’s “Ang Tangi Kong Pangarap” as part of the soundtrack of her 2019 Film, Unforgettable.
Other artists that will be part of the Rico Blanco Songbook project are Ebe Dancel with ‘Wag Mong Aminin and December Avenue with Umaaraw, Umuulan. Both singles have been released on various digital platforms. You can check them out below.
Mark your calendars, Popsters! Sarah Geronimo will be giving her own rendition of Your Universe, to be release on the 6th of November 2020.
