BARQ Signs Recording Contract with mustard music; Releases Debut Track “REMEMBER”

mustard music (sub-label of Universal Records Philippines) presents its newest signing, 19 year-old hip-hop artist Barq.

Also known as Arkin Magalona, Barq has decided to continue his father FrancisM’s legacy by coming into his own and making his own brand and style of hip-hop. His influences include Lil Peep, Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert, Joji, JuiceWrld, ColdHart, Lil Tracy, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator, Kanye West, among many others.

His debut single “Remember” explores thoughts on life after ending a relationship, whether its romantic or a friendship, “flexing” your life afterward.

The track brings a new vibe to the Filipino rap scene, with its take on trap that has been mostly unheard of locally.

Remember is now available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, and Amazon Music under mustard music.
