Raven, Angela Ken team up on soaring ballad ‘Pangako’

Angela Ken and raven, two of the most promising singer-songwriters in the country, recently linked up on a new song that expresses the joy of feeling secure about one’s relationship and wanting to make life-long plans with the person you love.

The soaring ballad “Pangako” finds the two Filipino artists exchanging vows of commitment with earnestness that speaks to an entire generation of listeners — young or old and everything in between.

The original version of “Pangako” was produced by raven with the assistance of his mentor, Rico Blanco. Acclaimed artists and producers Zild and Tim Marquez came into the picture for the duet version and added layers of newness and intricacy to the production.

The result is a heartwarming ballad that brims with intricate harmonies and gorgeous instrumentation, painting a picture of romantic bliss, the youthful kind.

Angela Ken rose to prominence with 2021’s “Ako Naman Muna,” which racked up more than 40 million streams on Spotify alone, while raven’s steady rise in the music industry and acute musical instincts captured the attention of Rico Blanco, resulting in a management deal with Balcony Entertainment and a record deal with Sony Music Entertainment.
