Pinoy Pop group SB19’s “Go Up” landed on the 17th spot in The Billboard Social 50 List, beating international pop artist Rihanna and K-pop global superstar Super Junior.
“Yeah we gonna Go Up”, the first line of their hit song, appears prophetic as SB19 jumped 11 notches to 17th spot on the Billboard Social 50 list of January 25, 2020, up from 28th spot in December 2019. Rihanna was at 18th and Super Junior at 19th rank in the listing led by K-pop’s BTS.
SB19, the first Pinoy boyband trained under the Korean Pop Idol system, is the first Filipino act to debut on The Billboard Social 50, a weekly ranking of the most active artists on the world’s leading social network sites.
SB19 maintains accounts on Facebook with 454k followers, Twitter with 181.1k followers, and Instagram with 203k followers with posts about their upcoming events, pictures, video greetings, and announcements. Their fandom A’Tin helps their idols’ activities on social media by always mentioning SB19 in their posts and hashtags.
The five-member Pinoy Pop group SB19, composed of Sejun, Josh, Stell, Ken and Justin, is handled by South Korean entertainment company ShowBT Philippines. They debuted late 2018 with the song “Tilaluha”.
In November 2019, SB19 landed strong at 6th spot in the Billboard Next Big Sound Chart.
They wrapped up their milestone year 2019 with a collaboration video for Netflix Philippines where the group sang and danced to the tune of “Netflix Ph Catch Up”, a song that presented Netflix Ph’s overview of their best 2019 shows released in a video on December 30.
Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo also marked another milestone in her career as her viral dance craze and song “Tala” entered Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales Charts at 12th spot this week.
