Filipino-Canadian R&B duo Manila Gray shared the music video for their latest song, “Island Baby (Maarte)”.
Directed by Brock Newman and Manila Grey’s Soliven, the lavish video premiered on YouTube earlier today (October 4) and opens with a short skit of the couple preparing for a crazy day. This is followed later by scenes of Manila Gray at a party and photoshoot, where they are surrounded by a group of women.

Produced by longtime producer and duo manager Azel North, “Island Baby (Maarte)” features acoustic guitar licking supported by thick bass rumbles and trap percussion.
The song is one of five tracks featured on Paradise Rising’s recently released sophomore compilation “Semilucent 2.” The EP, released today, also features tracks from Steven Peregrina, Daze, Curtismith, CA Christian Alexander, Manila Killa and Yuna.
Paradise Rising announced via social media that it will release individual music videos for all five songs on the disc by tomorrow (October 5).
Paradise Rising is a Filipino imprint of 88rising, a prominent Asian record label. Paradise Rising’s debut EP “Semilucent” arrived at the end of July last year.
Manila Gray recently released a remix of Nadine Luster’s ‘Ivory’ in mid-September. The duo released their second album ‘No Saints On Knight Street’ in late March. Last year they released a “slow + reverb” remix of their 2019 debut album “No Saints Loading”.
