2016 indeed was another exciting year for all of us. We had offered the best surprises, events and achievements to all music fans out there. Let's take a look back on the highlights of 2016 on our Most Played Songs!
#TheNewMPS was launched. It is the massive re-imaging of the page's logo, cover photos and website layout after almost two years. The color coding on each chart was still retained. It is now incorporated with stylish patterned background design. The font style of the logo was changed, added some details and the 'Most Played Songs' word was stylized into 'MPS' located inside the zeros (0) of the chart logo in line with the main logo which only shows the initials 'MPS'.
MPS Take Five started featuring 5 big hits from 1 artist for its 4th Wave. It featured new artist and updated hits of other artist featured in the first three waves. The new feature was posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights. The first featured artist for Wave 4 was Darren Espanto.
