Original Pilipino Music, now more commonly termed Original Pinoy Music, (frequently abbreviated to OPM) originally referred only to Filipino pop music|pop songs, especially those in the ballad form; such as songs popularized in the 1970s through the mid-1990s by major commercial Filipino pop artists like Ryan Cayabyab, Sharon Cuneta, Kuh Ledesma, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Basil Valdez, Rey Valera, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Jaya, Lani Misalucha, Lea Salonga, Janno Gibbs and the APO Hiking Society. In the passage of time as well as the development of many diverse and alternative musical styles in the Philippines, however, the term OPM now refers to any type of Original Philippine Music created in the Philippines or composed by individuals of Philippine extraction, regardless of location at the time when composed. The lyrics, in fact, may be in any language (although most of it are written either in Tagalog, English or taglish).
Original Pilipino Music is still popular today in the Philippines. Aside from ballads like Christian Bautista, Pinoy Rock is also successful.
Here are some successful Filipino rock bands today: Kamikazee Callalily Orange and Lemons Parokya ni Edgar Bamboo Itchyworms
RnB and acoustic music are also successful. RnB Princess, Kyla and RnB bands South Border and Freestyle introduced mellow music to the country.
