Dear RUSS, We Want You Back In The Philippines ASAP
Oh, we stan. We stan Russ hard.
The American hip-hop artist experienced firsthand how our love for him is "unlike any other" when he came to visit the Philippines for a one-night affair at the Kia Theatre last July 27. In what he described as a "historic" show, the hitmaker played his latest single "Summer at 7" live for the first time.
Girl you look like summer at 7...— Russ (@russdiemon) July 28, 2019
Thank you Philippines 🇵🇭 pic.twitter.com/Gm14b76dzd
On the previous night, Russ also made a surprise appearance at his friend and fellow musician Bazzi's show at The Island. We could tell he enjoyed the company of his fans here in the Philippines—especially Filipinas—after this amazing shoutout.
Saw a lot in the club last night...had no idea y’all had it like THAT 😂😂 shoutout to y’all 🇵🇭— Russ (@russdiemon) July 27, 2019
On July 29, Russ rolled out a short compilation video of his time here in the country. "Thank you, Philippines," he wrote in all caps. "Y'all are some of the most loving, supportive people ever. I can't wait to come back. Mahal kita."
Well, get back here! ASAP!

Of course, Russ fan VJ Samm and the MYX team are still floating on cloud nine after meeting him in the flesh for a sit-down interview. He told us, "I don't know what I did to gain all your support. I don't what happened, [how] I made it this huge. I'm so confused but absolutely appreciative."
Find out more about Russ and his music in our MYXclusive interview below. Also, watch out for his self-help book coming out November 12!
