P-Pop group SB19 has dislodged South Korean boy group BTS as the top artist on Billboard’s Hot Trending Songs chart with “Bazinga.”

BTS had been no. 1 in the newly-introduced chart for six weeks until SB19 took over the spot — making the five-piece Filipino group the first-ever act to do so. Thus, a first not just for the Phillippines but also for Southeast Asia.


Billboard News described SB19’s milestone as “dethroning BTS’ six-week rule.”

SB19 nominated for Billboard Music Awards

Currently, BTS’s “Butter” is at number 2 while “Permission To Dance” is at number 3. 

The chart is powered by Twitter, with the local hitmakers garnering 1.5 million Twitter mentions from November 26 to December 2, 2021. 

SB19 reaches new feats on two Billboard Charts

“Bazinga” was released in July as part of SB19’s album Pagsibol, but it was only in November when the group released the music video. 

SB19 took to social media to thank fans for helping them dominate the charts, saying: “Wow! Thank you A'TIN for bringing us to the Top Spot on the @billboard #HotTrendingSongs!” 

Meanwhile, SB19’s third-anniversary concert will have an exclusive cinema screening at the Gateway Cineplex on December 18 and 19 for both days 1 and 2 of their concert.
