The five-song project arrived last Friday (December 3) on all digital streaming platforms via Sony Music Philippines, led by the single ‘Dime Girls’, a song about female empowerment.
The 14-year-old rapper asserts this message in verses like, “Kami naman, babae naman ngayon sa unahan / Kami naman ang dapat ninyong tingnan / Kami naman ang magiging modelo at boses na papakinggan” – “This time, let the females be on the forefront / This time, you should look at us / We will be the role models and the voices heard”.

Alex Bruce’s debut EP also includes her previously released singles ‘Fake Friends’, ‘Yakap’, ‘Go Crazy’ and ‘Pull It Off’. On the project, Bruce raps about life, puppy love and her experiences as a young female artist in a male-dominated landscape. Stream it below:
