The newest rookie girl group under Star Hunt Academy — BINI — has finally released their first song after months of anticipation.
Composed of Aiah, Colet, Gwen, Jhoanna, Maloi, Mikha, Sheena, and Stacey, the eight-member group formerly known as SHA girl trainees is finally set to conquer the P-Pop stage through their pre-debut single “Da Coconut Nut”.
A remake to the original song composed by Ryan Cayabyab and popularized by Smokey Mountain in 1991, “Da Coconut Nut” marks the girls’ first release after a year-long training with both local and Korean partners.
MU Doctor, for one, took on the challenge of bringing a new flavor to the song through a fresh, upbeat reinvention. Meanwhile, dancers Yeon Joo and Kwan Seong Chan — who have both worked with K-Pop groups such as BTS, SEVENTEEN, TWICE, and Red Velvet — created the choreography.
Watch the lyric video below:
The official music video for “Da Coconut Nut” is set to be released on November 20th.
Prior to their debut, the girls have been doing various dance covers and challenges — including local and K-Pop favorites — while training inside the Star Hunt Academy.
Last October, the P-Pop group also made waves after releasing dance covers which featured various 80s hits.
BINI has a male counterpart composed of five members namely Gelo, Akira, JL, Mikki, and Nate.
It was in 2018 when Star Hunt Academy first launched the program which initially had 250 aspirants trimmed down to just 5 groups and 8 girls.
