Demi Lovato's Unbroken

‘Unbroken’ reveals a different side of Demi, full of solid tracks ranging from emotional ballads to R&B and fun pop songs showcasing a more mature Demi who has bounced back from all adversities, proving how she withstood it all and is now stronger than ever. The 15-track album begins with upbeat pop songs, including her collaboration with Missy Elliott and Timbaland on “All Night Long,” and gradually becomes more serious and emotional with her chart-topping hit single “Skyscraper.” Produced by Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Fergie, Kelly Clarkson), the expressively resonant “Skyscraper” illustrates Lovato’s personal journey of overcoming challenges by staying tough and believing in herself. Demi simply shines through and does it all without any pretense, making her millions of fans admire her all the more.

Marie Digby's Your Love

She is a YouTube phenomenon who has garnered close to 20 million views to date for her homemade video of her acoustic cover of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” in 2007. In 2009, she released her debut album “Unfold” which broke into the Billboard charts at #29 on its first week and spawned the hit single “Say It Again”. 
 Songs from the album have been used in top US shows like ER, The Hills, Greek, Smallville and One Tree Hill.  She followed it up with her sophomore release “Breathing Under Water.”

While she has performed all over the US, Europe and Asia, Marié recognizes that a huge chunk of her fanbase are Filipinos. Even though she has no Filipino blood (Marié is of half-Irish, half-Japanese descent), her captivating beauty, charismatic personality, and heartfelt songs have enthralled the Pinoy market.

Now, Marié  Digby has a new album entitled “Your Love”, released by Star Records and MCA Music. Marié made this album especially for her Filipino fans.

“Since I made my YouTube video and recorded my albums, my fans in the Philippines have been asking me to come visit.  This album is my gift to them for all their support,” Marié said.

The album is bannered by the single “Your Love”, which is now playing heavily on radio stations and music channels all over the country. It features her collaborations with the Philippines’ hottest actors Sam Milby (“Your Love” duet) and Jericho Rosales (“I Do”). It also includes other original tracks such as “Swoon” and “Loving You Is Easy”, her version of the OPM hit “I Think I’m In Love” and her hit songs “Say It Again” and “Umbrella”.  You can sing along with Marie’s music as minus one versions of the tracks are also in the album. 

 “Your Love” is available now in CDs and digital downloads under Star Records and MCA Music and will also be released soon in Asia. To download “Your Love” as your ringback tone, text KL222 and send to 2332 for Globe,  YORLUV and send to 2728 for Smart and 5493402 and send to 2300.
