Filipino idol group SB19 has made it to Billboard’s Top Social 50 Artists of 2020, ranking 6th on the highly-anticipated year-end list, followed by artists like Blackpink and Billie Eilish.
The Korean agency-trained, P-pop (K-pop inspired Pinoy pop) quintet is the only Filipino act to enter this year’s top 10 list.
SB19 shared the good news on Twitter on Friday, December 4, thanking Billboard for the recognition, as well as their fans.
“And of course, to our beloved A’TIN, thank you for all of the unimaginable plot twists in our life. Too grateful to have you. Stay amazing, guys,” they wrote.
SB 19, comprised of members Sejun, Stell, Ken, Josh, and Justin, are the first P-pop boy group to be trained under a Korean entertainment company. They debuted officially in October 2018 with their first single “Tilaluha,” but gained popularity in September 2019 when their dance video for “Go Up” went viral.
They’ve released their first debut album Get In The Zone in July 2020, which includes other hits like “Alab” and their latest release, “Hanggang sa Huli.”
