Hev Abi has released his debut album “Kung Alam Mo Lang” (If You Only Know) exclusively on Spotify. The release follows his 2022 EP Sakred Boy, and follows a string of successful releases that have netted the hip-hop artist around 2.2 million montly listeners on the platform.

The release of the 12-track album is accompanied by a special presentation of DougBrock TV’s “Soundtrip” series in partnership with Spotify. The campaign, which debuted last October 21, will see Hev Abi perform seven of the 12 tracks.
True to the the album’s name, Hev Abi says “Kung Alam Mo Lang” features topics that he is uncomfortable to talk about and themes that he consciously avoids, usually due to the depth of emotions involved.
“Kung Alam Mo Lang ang title kasi laging napapadaan ‘yung phrase na ‘yun sa mga sitwasyong ma-drama,” he says. Walang bago sa album na ‘to, nagkataon na mga drama na private these past few months ay ginawa kong mga kanta. Siguro masasabi ko din na ginawa kong outlet ng mga nararamdaman ko ‘tong album na ‘to sa mga dumaan na buwan. Kung alam mo lang.“
(The reason why the title is Kung Alam Mo Lang is because that phrase is always uttered in dramatic situations. There’s nothing new in this album, it just so happens that a lot of dramatic things that I’ve been keeping private these past few months are put into song. I can also say that I used music as an outlet for my feelings these past few months. If Only You Knew.”)
