Multi-awarded singer-songwriter Moira Dela Torre has been rightfully dubbed as Spotify's "Most Streamed Filipina Artist" and "Most Followed Filipino Artist" and this 2023, in the midst of her wildly successful ongoing world tour, she continues to dominate the streaming giant as one of very few Filipino artists to surpass one billion streams. To be more precise, according to a post by @chartdataPH on Twitter dated May 13, 2023 citing the inclusion of rock band December Avenue in the elite "1B Spotify streams club," Moira is the only solo and Filipina artist to reach the milestone (with at least 1.3 billion streams to her name). Aside from Moira and December Avenue, Ben&Ben is the only other artist who shares the same achievement.
As an artist under Republic Records Philippines, she has recently released two original singles - "Ikaw at Sila" and "EME" - which will be included in her upcoming full-length album. Both songs were very well-received by her fans, drumming up more excitement for the release of the album.
As of writing, she has successfully held thirteen shows locally and abroad (most of which were sold-out) for her ongoing 2023 World Tour. This July 2, she will be performing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and it has been announced that she will be holding a concert in Davao on August 26. It is expected that she will be announcing more tour dates soon.
Her latest single "EME" is now available to stream on all major music streaming platforms.
