Barbie almabis rues rash actions in new pop anthem ‘Wicked Heart’

Multi-awarded singer-songwriter Barbie Almalbis wraps up her tremendous year in music with the release of Wicked Heart, her new single under 12 Stone Records and Sony Music Entertainment.

Almalbis’ new song reflects on the repercussions of making rash decisions out of emotion. “The Dahilan” artist recalled a personal experience in the past involving a misguided action that she regretted doing.

“I was thinking about how following your heart can lead to trouble sometimes,” she said. “I want to follow my heart, but it’s always changing its mind. It’s definitely something I’ve personally been through, but it also takes inspiration from the verse in Jeremiah 17:9: The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked: Who can know it?”

Written and produced by Almalbis with Jorel Corpus and Jett Galindo mixing and mastering the track, Wicked Heart offers a pop anthem with ‘80s influences and pastel synths.

Almalbis recently celebrated her 25th year in the music scene with a concert chronicling her career as one of the most influential figures in Pinoy alternative rock. She also recently released her debut solo record, Parade, on vinyl for the first time.
