Music career[change | change source]

At the age of 10, $kip performed for live audiences and clubs where people gave him credits for his act. People also rated him performances. One comment lead him to join a local competition and sang "Benny And The Jets", but didn't he win.[4] Two days after the competition, a call from his old record label offered him to get signed.[5] In 2011, he rejected his label and was forced to move to another one.[6]

A week after releasing his first single,[7] the song directly charted in the Philippines where it peaked in the top 8 for 2 straight weeks.[8][9] The single was then a certified Gold. According to PARI (Philippine Association of the Record Industry), the single's certification was supposed to be higher,[source?] but all agreed that the single can only make it to Gold.

Skip has said that his debut album will be released some time in December 2012.[10] In February 2012, he performed his second single from the album, titled "Clap! Clap! Clap!". The song directly debuted on the Philippine Charts and there it peaked on number 10.[11]
