Inigo Pascual recognizes that he’s a work-in-progress, yet he continues to find the spotlight for himself and has showed us that he indeed has the guts to do so—especially in the global stage.
Born into the glitzy trappings of the entertainment world may sound like an easy ticket to any path. But not for Inigo Pascual. Despite people’s take on nepotism and the privilege that comes with bearing a prominent family name, the 23-year old is pretty much aware of it all. In fact, it’s the main reason why he had to work even harder for people to take him seriously. Inigo’s struggles of making it as artist was definitely no fairy tale, having experienced countless rejections and let downs as much as his contemporaries.
He doesn’t settle for less, doesn’t mind being an underrated artist, and just continues to stay in his lane, making music. Inigo Pascual’s been pushing the boundaries of OPM sound, continuously working with global names even before he released his first international album, Options. From Grammy-nominated producers, to a team who worked closely with K-pop group BTS, here are all the times Inigo represented Filipino talent on the world stage.
INIGO X 88 RISING
Alongside global Asian acts like NIKI, Beabadoobee, and Rich Brian, Inigo Pascual performed at record label and music collective 88 Rising’s online festival Asia Rising last year where he sang a cover of Post Malone’s Better Now and Fugees’ Killing Me Softly.
INIGO X REQ
Inigo Pascual’s collaboration with Singapore-based rapper REQ was a hit, not only because of the upbeat energy that mirrors the 2017 hit song Wild Thoughts or the classic Game of Love by Michelle Branch and Santana, but the introduction of this fresh sound paved the way for Inigo’s music style.

Jumping on the track with a diverse cast of musicians, Inigo Pascual joins Korean-American singer Annalé, Brazilian guitar maestro Mateus Asato, and Malaysian production trio MFMF.
