We're still not over it: the premiere of One Music POPSSSS Season 6 was a huge success!
It was the biggest, most extravagant episode to date, as our hosts got to celebrate the beginning of the new season in style thanks to our friends at Subaru, who provided a sweet ride for our hosts going to the premiere, and the Novotel Manila Araneta Center, where the first episode of this season was held.

Hours before the premiere, we invited members of the press to The 6th Pool and Bar Lounge for a blog conference to let them get to know the POPSSSS Squad featuring Inigo Pascual, Maris Racal, and our newest additions to the Popssss family: AC Bonifacio, Ryle Santiago, and Jayda!
The weather took a turn to the rainy side, but that didn't stop our Squad from bringing you fun, laughter, and summer feels with their epic opening number of "Lumang Tugtugin," Inigo's latest hit! Check out those bathrobes, though.
Much like their opening number, the rest of the hilarious episode highlighted each of our hosts' strengths and unique personalities, especially in the new upcoming segments where AC and Ryle will be teaching viewers how to do the latest dance craze or how to play a certain song on the guitar. Viewers will also get to know Jayda a little more intimately as she shares her experience and songwriting process for her EP "In My Room," which also happens to be the title of her own segment!
Since we made way for the new members of the POPSSSS family, we combined Inigo's Corner and Maris Closet and morphed it into MarNigo's Hangout where both of our veteran hosts will be interviewing special guests and go on with their usual antics.
The much awaited Inigo VS Maris was leveled up for this season as well! The two hosts battled it out to see who could say "One Music Popssss Season 6" with the longest breath, and was moderated by Ryle who did an impromptu demonstration of how it's done. Since this was the first episode, the point for this battle is not counted for the rest of the season. However, the loser had to jump in the pool. *Spoiler: Maris lost, but Inigo jumped in the pool for her.
They five hosts closed out the episode by jamming to a mashup of "Girls Like You" and "One Kiss," as well as viewers' requests of JoJo's "Weak" and Daniel Cesar's "Best Part." The chemistry between the five hosts was very evident as they harmonized and shared effortless banter among themselves, and that camaraderie is what makes this season extra special.
And of course, we didn't forget about the fans that won our guessing game leading up to the premiere. They finally had the chance to meet their idols after watching them live, and that in itself was the best part of the season premiere!
