SB19 to release WYAT and kickoff world tour
After over a year of waiting, the Philippines' most popular and successful
P-Pop group SB19 is back with a new single titled WYAT (Where You At)
which will be released on September 2.
“It’s been a year, the word 'hiatus' may sound negative but we took it from a different
perspective. We maximized the opportunity to think more as to what we can improve on,
how we can prepare for our comeback,” says SB19 Stell.
“We are thrilled to be releasing a new song for our fans. Bigger,
better. I hope that A'TIN will appreciate at best the work we've done for our upcoming tour.” SB19 Ken mentioned.
They are also set for a world tour kicking off at the iconic Smart Araneta Coliseum on September 17,
to be followed with a series of shows in Clark, Cebu, Davao, and other countries like the US, UAE, and Singapore.
“This will be the first time for us to be going out of the country for our own concert,”
reveals SB19 Josh. “We’re excited to meet our international fans. If I may put it: we
were caterpillars inside cocoons when we were just starting and now, we've turned into
butterflies ready to spread our wings!”
In the creative process, the group revealed that they very much involved, according to SB19 Justin.
“When SB19 Pablo told us the meaning of WYAT, the song that he and his
brother Josue created, I was able to conceptualize WYAT. From there, our team was
able to brainstorm on how to improve my initial concept. We made options and showed
the other members of SB19, so they could also give their insights. One idea led to
another. We started plotting everything: from teasers to the actual music video, every
post, down to the last detail.” he explained
SB19 Justin adds, “Josh tweaks a bit of everything, from choreography to the direction
of our shoots. He and Pablo has a big role in decision-making. Ken helps with the
creative process, from how the dances should look to the set design. Aside from being
the main choreographer, Stell also shares ideas on how to promote our comeback.
He’s been mentioning if we could play the videos after our recent performances before the
tour starts, So we did. Last August 7, 2022 at Mall of Asia Arena was when we first
dropped our video teaser in front of thousands of live audience. I highly consider what
the other members, management, staff and other people around me think. It really takes
a village and is a healthy collaboration."
