It's time to flip our calendars and switch to April.
That's right—another month in lockdown passed just like that. This past week, we caught up with Rico Blanco, Ely Buendia, Sandwich, SB19, Reese Lansangan, Typecast, and more to share how their lives have been like in quarantine over the past year.

Speaking of BTS, they unveiled their latest single and music video for 'Film Out', co-written by Jungkook with Japanese pop-rock act Back Number. TREASURE also dropped their 13-track Japanese record entitled THE FIRST STEP: TREASURE EFFECT this week. Back in the Philippines, SB19 debuted their 5-part docuseries on their official YouTube channel.
