BAGUIO CITY – Award-winning P-Pop group SB19 has finally released a teaser for their much-awaited music comeback.
In their social media posts last February 9, the breakthrough Filipino group published a photo of them facing a field-like view with a “mark-the-date” invite for March 9.
In fact, the fans, called A’TIN, seemed to have already anticipated the announcement on that day, as it was already revealed by ShowBT Philippines CEO Charles Kim during a livestream that they will be announcing the comeback date of SB19 on the 9th of the month.
Indeed, when it was revealed, not one, not two, not three, but seven SB19-related hashtags and topics (such as #SB19IkalawangYugto, #SB19WhatIsComing, SB19 PARATING NA, etc.) dominated (and topped) Philippine trends on Twitter, and two of them even made it to the top five of the site’s Worldwide trends.
In Star FM Baguio’s previous interview with the group, Sejun— SB19’s leader, main rapper and lead vocalist— has shared their hopes to establish P-Pop in the Philippines, and hopefully introduce it around the world.
“Gusto po talaga naming ma-establish yung P-Pop dito sa Philippines. Hopefully, ma-promote po yung talent ng lahat ng Filipinos all over the world, na ipakita natin sa buong mundo na kayang-kaya po nating makipagsabayan sa kahit kanino. Right now, talagang nagfo-focus po kami sa craft namin. Hopefully, pag nailabas po namin siya, suportahan po siya ng mga Filipinos, and hopefully, ma-recognize at magustuhan ng mga ibang tao from different countries,” the 26-year-old P-Pop star shares.
SB19, which consists of Sejun, Stell, Josh, Ken and Justin, broke into the music scene when a video of their “Go Up” dance practice went viral on September 2, 2019 after a Twitter user named Lyra (@BAE_Sodu) shared it on the social media site.
On July 31, 2020, the quintet released their first full-length album, Get in the Zone. The nine-track album included the hits “Alab”, “Go Up”, and “Hanggang sa Huli.”
They also brought pride to the country when they became the first Filipino group to enter Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart on November 20, 2019 as well as be the first Southeast Asian act to enter the top 10 of the Billboard Social 50 year-end chart in 2020.
With all the achievements that the P-Pop group has claimed for the past two years, it’s a clear guarantee that their music and talent will take them places.
Will their upcoming music comeback finally seal their place in the international music scene?
We’re here for it.
