It’s a busy time this love month for Filipino folk pop band Ben&Ben.
Earlier this month, the band released their advocacy song about internet safety, in collaboration with Google Philippines.
“We wrote this song in partnership with Google to advocate for internet safety,” Ben&Ben wrote in the description section of the song’s music video on their YouTube channel titled “Mag-Ingat.”
Aside from this partnership and launch, the nine-member band is also gearing up for an upcoming digital concert on Sunday, February 20.
Titled All Feelings Attached, Ben&Ben will be performing hits off of their second album titled Pebble House, Vol. 1: Kuwaderno.
The show will exclusively stream via Smart’s GigaPlay app, and will feature behind-the-scenes content of the virtual concert, as well as from their music video “Upuan” which featured Kapamilya love team Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano, collectively addressed as DonBelle.

Ben&Ben is behind OPM hits such as “Araw-Araw,” “Pagtingin,” “Kathang Isip,” and “Leaves,” among others.
In an episode of the online show PUSH Bets Live last December, the group talked about using music as a way to raise awareness on certain societal issues. In fact, their latest song then titled “Lunod” talked about mental health.
"Ang mensahe na gusto namin i-share sa pamamagitan ng 'Lunod' ay mental health ay mahalaga," said one of the band's vocalists, Paolo Guico.
"Ang mental health ay isang laban na hindi mo kailangang tahakin mag-isa. Napakalayo pa ng kailangan nating marating sa usapan ng mental health pero sa dulo ng kanta, tinapos namin 'yung kanta na 'Lunod' sa katagang ''Di na muling malulunod pa.'"
"Nais naming magbigay ng pag-asa sa lahat na ano man 'yung paraan mo para marating 'yun, naniniwala kaming darating ka sa punto na hindi ka na malulunod sa mga pangamba mo, sa mga thoughts mo at sa mga fears mo," he added.
