Following an extremely successful start to the new year with multiple film and television projects released in her home of the Philippines, Lovi Poe released her debut U.S. single “Under,” done in collaboration with Grammy-winning producers Ømen (Drake, Beyonce, Action Bronson) and Bob Robinson alongside Kris KeyZ and recorded at folk artist Austin Wards’ studio in Los Angeles.

The accompanying music video, directed by American director Jessica Fee, can be viewed HERE and the E.P. will follow in June.
About the single, Lovi says, “Nostalgia hits with ‘Under.’ It’s about being consumed with the memory of a lost love: the highs, the lows…the loss. Sometimes we get so caught up in our everyday lives that we don’t have the time to feel all the emotions and stages we go through a heartbreak. And this song talks about a moment when it hits you that you allow yourself to feel and become truly honest with yourself that you are finally able to release and return to yourself. ‘Under’ is the first song I’ve recorded outside the Philippines and it’s a landmark in terms of how it re-establishes my initial start in the entertainment industry which is through music. The fact that I was given the opportunity to work with amazing producers and musicians such as Ømen, Bob and Austin is quite unimaginable. I hope the music we’re about to share conveys the same incredible experience I had making them. ‘Under’ is just the beginning. Looking forward to exciting times ahead.”
