P-Pop group SB19 once again made it to Forbes — and it appears the future is looking bright for the group, said music journalist Hugh McIntyre.
It’s no surprise that SB19 got the attention of US magazine Forbes as the next big Southeast Asian act to watch out for considering the performance of the group on various Billboard charts in the last two years.
Their feats include beating K-Pop group BTS in the Billboard’s Hot Trending Songs Charts. SB19 managed to overtake BTS’s “Permission To Dance” and “Butter” with their song “Bazinga.”
Calling SB19 a “rare Filipino act,” McIntyre said the “future is bright” for the boys and that it’s only a matter of creating a “real, inescapable hit” for them to reach more audiences in the Western market.
“At the moment, SB19 continues to make impressive inroads as a rare Filipino musical act to make any chart impression in the U.S., and the future is bright for the exciting new outfit,” he said.
“In an age when more Asian stars are reaching audiences in Western markets than ever before, this might be the ideal time for the boy band from Southeast Asia to make big moves and score a real, inescapable hit,” he added.
Composed of members Josh, Pablo, Stell, Ken and Justin, SB19’s songs include “Go Up,” “Alab,” “Ikako,” and “Tilaluha,” among others.
