MUSIC LYF: Myrus - Wanted

Singer-composer Myrus releases all-original album titled “Wanted”

MYRUS, the sentimental prince of OPM, has finally released his most anticipated second album, titled “Wanted”, under Viva Records this May. 

Presented by McJIM Leather, “Wanted” marks the next wave of Myrus’ career as a musical auteur—a brilliant composer, music producer, vocal arranger, and singer rolled into one. 

The album is composed of five all-original tracks penned by Myrus himself including his monster radio and Youtube hit single “Pusong Lito” and pop ballads “Sige Na Nga,” “Mahal Kita,” “Ano’ng Kailangan Kong Gawin” and “Sana’y Malaman Mo.” 

His collaboration with acoustic artist Princess Velasco for the song classic song “Kanlungan” popularized by Noel Cabangon, which was originally released in the “Tunog Natin: Song From Home” compilation album, is included as a bonus track.   

“Pusong Lito” is gaining a huge following online; it topped the charts of many radio stations in Greater Metro Manila, Cebu, Davao, Lucena, Cagayan de Oro, Baguio, Urdaneta, Dagupan, Iloilo, Bacolod, and Cotabato. The song’s rise to popularity was aided by its initial release in over 450 Mang Inasal stores, as part of the Mang Inasal Mang Aawit Music Advocacy Campaign.

“’Wanted’ is the album that embodies who I am as an artist. I am excited to share my music to Original Pilipino Music lovers who are looking for new but distinctly Filipino sound,” he says.

“Wanted” reflects Myrus maturity as a singer and composer. It showcases his superb vocal ability—undeniably one of the most talented today—and his capacity to seamlessly marry contemporary musical elements with traditional OPM aesthetics.     

Myrus first stepped into the spotlight in 2008 when he released his debut album titled “Love Cycle” under Sony Music. That album, which featured his revival of Claire dela Fuente’s classic jukebox song “Sayang”, was awarded Gold Record status and received the ASAP 24K Award in 2009. 

He likewise gained critical acclaim and nominations in the prestigious Awit Awards and the First Philippine Radio Music Awards for the album. 

As a composer, Myrus is behind the megahit song “Sa Isang Sulyap Mo” of boy band 1:43 which is currently one of the official soundtracks of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition in ABS-CBN. He also wrote songs for Arnee Hidalgo for the Mang Inasal Mang Aawit music advocacy program and for Mcoy Fundales and Barbie Almalbis for the “Tunog Natin” album.
