SB19 is “cooking up” something special after making history by being the first Filipino and Southeast Asian act to be nominated in the Billboard Music Awards (BBMA) for Top Social Artist.
During RAWR Nation’s exclusive interview, members were excited to say that fans should expect a lot from the band for the rest of the year.
Justin de Dios, the youngest performer, said the band will hold a concert in July and is currently working on making new songs.
“Bukod sa concert namin sa July, we’re preparing for an album for EP so sana abangan niyo yan. Nagsusulat kami ngayon ng mga kanta,” he revealed.
He hopes that the health crisis will end soon so they can perform with a live audience,
“Later this year sana matapos na yung pandemic, gusto namin makaperform ng live with live audiences,” he added.
Josh Santos meanwhile hinted at future collaborations with fellow OPM artists but did not drop any name.
“Maraming dapat iexpect na pasabog, pwedeng mga collaborations, projects, kaya abangan niyo na lang.
He mentioned that the band is working on featuring other talents.
“Marami na kaming niluluto.”
When asked about not winning at the BBMA, Josh said the nomination alone was already a huge win.
“Ma-nominate pa lang sa spot na yun parang malaking karangalan na yun sa amin. Panalo na tayong lahat doon. Deserve naman nung mga nanalo.”
He is optimistic that the band will eventually win an award in the future.
“In the future darating rin yung tamang oras para sa time namin. Kailangan lang namin maging consistent.”
Stell Ajero on the other expressed gratitude to the Filipino artists who support the SB19.
“Dahil sa nomination, parang ito na yung naging daan para magbukas pa ng maraming pintuan para sa ibang artists dito sa Pilipinas.” he said.
