Following the launch of Spotify's EQUAL hub in March, Spotify Philippines announced last week the inclusion of Nadine Lustre to the music program as the country’s first Artist of the Month.
The actress and singer is featured on the cover of Philippines’ EQUAL playlist. Lustre is also featured on a digital billboard in New York Times Square.
“I’m stoked to be part of EQUAL along with other female artists,” she enthused.
Through the EQUAL Global Music Program, Spotify aims to amplify the work of women creators by extending its resources and generating more opportunities for these artists, and by creating a global, cohesive, branded experience. The playlist includes songs by female music artists.
As the first-ever EQUAL Artist of the Month for the Philippines, Nadine Lustre hopes to inspire women creators to continue honing their craft and using their talents to champion for equality.
“I hope that through our songs we can inspire others to never stop being creative—to constantly trust themselves when tapping into their imagination—so that they feel compelled to create and share it with the world,” she said.
Lustre joins other featured artists around the world: Saweetie (United States), DUDA BEAT (Brazil), Griff (United Kingdom), Natalia Lafourcade (Mexico), and Zoe Wees (Germany/UK).
