2017 was an incredible year for us here on MPS! Aside from sharing with you new music and hot chart action everyday, we also offered the best surprises, awards, events and achievements to all music fans out there.
Let's take a look back on the highlights of how wonderful the year that was on MPS!
For the first time, MPS opened the voting lines as early as January 9 for the annual MPS People's Choice. Instead of charting the songs every end of the year, we decided to chart it monthly, while the voting will continue all year round. The top 10 songs with highest number of votes will be revealed every last Sunday of the month beginning January 29.
On this day, MPS started to feature again 5 big hits on MPS Take Five every time there is a new or returning artist on the daily chart. This was done until June 2016 and considered as the 5th wave. A total of 17 artists were featured during the said period.
The MPS Online Awards 2017 Announcement of Nominees occurred for the first time on Facebook LIVE. Voting began immediately after the announcement. It has 16 different categories to vote for including a new category, Favorite OPM Artist. Popstar royalty Sarah Geronimo has the most nominations with 7.

After the voting lines closed on December 17 the results were revealed! "CSN" by Elmo Magalona was the MPS People's Choice Year-End 2017 top 1 song, garnering 50.90% of total votes. He also ruled the monthly charts from July to October.
The 3 MPS weekly charts–OPM Top 10, Inter Top 10 and Weekly Top 20 unveiled its respective year-end results. For the 4th consecutive year, Sarah Geronimo once again topped the OPM Top 10 Year-End 2017 chart with smashing hit "Misteryo" for 9 weeks. On the other hand, the other queen of MPS, Taylor Swift reclaims her crown on Inter Top 10 Year-End 2017 and Weekly Top 20 Year-End 2017 with "Look What You Made Me Do" spending 9 consecutive weeks on top of both charts.
For the finale, it was still Queen Taylor Swift who got the number one spot on MPS Best of 2017. She dominated the daily charts for 45 consecutive days on top from August 29 (the day it premiered) until October 30. Back in 2014, she was also hailed as the Best song of the year with "Shake It Off".
