Martin Nievera’s 30th Year “3D: Tatlong Dekada” Album track list revealed!

Thirty years after the song “Be My Lady” have been one of the most  favourite  love songs of OPM and as the rise of the Concert King Martin Nievera, PolyEast Records celebrates a legendary career  with the release of the album MARTIN NIEVERA 3D: Tatlong Dekada.

The new album represents Martin’s every aspect of his career – from recording to touring to endorsements to best-selling albums.  “Here’s a CD of 15 newly written songs just to add more magic to OPM. I’m just so proud of this album because it’s going to celebrate my 30 years in the business without having to look back. Let’s just say, today is first day of the rest of my career,” Nievera said.

As the album celebrates Nievera’s achievements of the past and the promise of the future,  MARTIN NIEVERA 3D: Tatlong Dekada is now available in stores released by PolyEast Records which comes with a CD plus DVD– collecting music videos of Nievera’s monumental anthems that played a pivotal role in his musical history.

Being Nievera’s home label since his album Chasing Time in 2002,  PolyEast Records has put together an outstanding collection featuring Nievera’s classic signature sound with 15 original songs and three classic remakes.

The first single taken from the highly anticipated new album is entitled IPADARAMA written by the award-winning composer Kiko Salazar and currently being played on local radios.

To celebrate 30 years of music and the release of this new album, Nievera’s collaborative approach to writing and recording his new music is evidenced throughout the album with the help of some of the most notable songwriters and producers of OPM which includes Marvin Querido, Joey Benin, Jungee Marcelo, Ogie Alcasid, Arnie Mendaros and Kiko Salazar.

Nievera also recorded three remakes which run the gamut of his varied stylistic approach and what Nievera has been known for, for the past years. “Remakes became my new therapy… to bring back new life to old songs” Nievera said.  Remakes include the song “Pangako”, originally by Ogie Alcasid,  was used in the teleserye “Walang Hanggan”; Paul Anka’s “Times of Your Life” with Nievera’s version from the hit teleserye Lorenzo’s Time; and a timeless collaboration with Vina Morales in  teleserye’s A Beautiful Affair’s song “After All” which was originally popularized by Peter Cetera in the 80s.

As testament to the genre that Nievera spawned thirty years ago, he has indelibly etched in Philippine music history and popular culture being OPM’s Concert King. Nievera’s first-ever album was Martin…Take One in 1982, sparked an incredible run of success that made him chart over 26 albums since then and became one of the highest selling OPM artists until now. “In my 30 years in the music business, I think I’ve had more failures, misses than hits. I think I am a success because of my failures.”

Nievera recently finished his stint being a judge/mentor on the recently concluded reality talent show XFactor on ABS-CBN and he shared “I think the next step is putting more emphasis on OPM by coming out with songs written by Filipinos, sung by Filipinos…I think I’ve to try develop ‘dreamers’ and I’ve learned a lot being a judge/mentor on XFactor… I want to teach these new singers to have a dream

For hundreds of thousands of fans who have sung and celebrated with OPM’s concert king, Nievera has been a constant factor in their lives. Now here’s how he would like to thank all the fans who have been supporting him over the past 30 years. MARTIN NIEVERA 3D: Tatlong Dekada is now available in stores nationwide released by PolyEast Records. Special thanks to Discovery Suites.

Songs of the 80’s for The X Factor Philippines this weekend!

Judge-mentor Gary Valenciano now has slimmer chances of winning in “The X Factor Philippines” alongside his mentees after his second group, Takeoff got eliminated last Sunday (Sep 2).

After the mentor-judges’ votes caused a deadlock between Takeoff and Over 25′s Joan Da, the voting public’s decision ruled in favor of Joan(9.99%) and sent home the all-male group who garnered the lowest numbers of text votes (6.59%). While Gary and Pilita are left with only one act to mentor, Charice still has KZ Tandingan and Allen Sta. Maria representing the Girls. Martin Nievera, meanwhile, remains unbeaten with three of his mentees from the Boys— Jeric Medina, Gabriel Anciano, and Kedebon Colim— still standing strong in the show.

What will the top 7 perform this week? ITS THE WEEK of 80s SONGS! Whose journey will end in the next elimination night?

Don’t miss as the competition gets even tougher in the country’s biggest and grandest musical event of the year, “The X Factor Philippines,” with KC Concepcion as host, every Saturday, after “MMK,” and every Sunday, after “Sarah G Live” on ABS-CBN.

Take Off is Voted Off from ‘The X Factor Philippines’!

Take Off has been voted off from The X Factor Philippines after receiving the least percentage of votes from the public.

The bottom two, Take Off and Joan Da, battled for the mentor-judges’ votes during the September 2 episode of The X Factor Philippines.

On their third time in the bottom 2, Take Off sang Ogie Alcasid’s “Sa Kanya” for their survival song.

Joan Da, on the other hand, sang “Grenade” by Bruno Mars as her survival song. It was her second time in the bottom 2.

Pilita Corales and Charice Pempengco voted off Take Off, while Gary Valenciano and Martin Nieveravoted off Joan Da which resulted to another deadlock.

But since Take Off got the lowest number of votes, 6.59% against Joan Da‘s 9.9%, Gary V.’s boy band was eliminated.

‘The X-Factor Philippines’ is the most watched talent show!

The country’s biggest musical event of the year, “The X Factor Philippines,” won in national TV ratings over rival network’s newly launched talent-reality shows during the weekend making it the most-watched talent show in the land.

Based on recent urban and rural TV ratings data from Kantar Media, “The X Factor Philippines” scored an average national TV rating of 20.7% last Saturday (Aug 4) vs TV5’s Artista Academy” only rated at 1.8%. GMA 7’s bet “Protégé: The Battle for the Big Artista Break” also fell short on its viewership and wasn’t able to beat “The X Factor Philippines” (16.6%) during its launch last Sunday (Aug 5).

More Filipinos are definitely glued to the intense competition being served by the hit Kapamilya show especiall after judge-mentor Charice bid goodbye to her first act. Jerrianne Templo, a dive guide from Mandaluyong City, got booted from the competition after judge-mentors Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, and Pilita Corrales favored to save Over 25s Joan Da, who is also at the bottom two together with Jerrianne.

Who among the finalist will standout in this week’s performances? Who will be the next finalist falling off to the bottom 2? Whose judge’s acts will continue and who will end their journey? Don’t miss as the competition heats up in the country’s biggest and grandest musical event of the year, “The X Factor Philippines,” with KC Concepcion as host, every Saturday, after “MMK,” and every Sunday, after “Sarah G Live” on ABS-CBN.

Tension heats up among “The X Factor Philippines” judge-mentors!


Tension heated up in the country’s biggest musical event of the year, “The X Factor Philippines” last Saturday (July 7) after judge-mentors Martin Nievera and Gary Valenciano got into a small debate whether to put through an auditionee or not.

After Allen Sta. Maria of Cabanatuan City performed her piece, Gary and fellow judge Charice instantly voted yes while Martin said no. Gary argued that the young girl has strong potential and her voice quality is current with what teenagers nowadays listen to but Martin remained unconvinced and thought that her performance fell short. In the end, Pilita Corrales casted the deciding vote and sided with Gary and Charice. Martin was dismayed and argued with the judges once more while Allen went backstage and rejoiced with her family.

The task of spotting the ‘x factor’ is indeed getting tougher week by week. A single vote from the judge-mentors can make or break the chances of the country’s next singing superstar. Don’t miss the country’s biggest and grandest musical event of the year, “The X Factor Philippines,” with KC Concepcion as host, every Saturday, after “MMK,” and every Sunday, after “Sarah G Live” on ABS-CBN.
