SB19 gears up for WYAT world tour

P-Pop boy group SB19.

SB19 recently spilled some real talk about the hardships they faced to get to where they are right now.

“Grabe yung training namin. Actually parang ayaw ko na, eh. Umaabot sa point na parang we almost felt like collapsing during the training (Our training is really hard. I sometimes feel like I can’t do it anymore. It got to a point where we felt like collapsing during the training),” Ken, the main dancer, lead vocalist, and lead rapper of the group mused at the media conference for the release of “WYAT (Where You At).”

Nontheless, Josh — lead rapper, lead dancer, and sub-vocalist — expressed the goup’s gratitude for the opportunities and awards they’ve been reaping.

“We’re (working) hard (on our) training especially since (the concert) is not just going to be in the Philippines. We’re really grateful na nabibigyan kami ng (that we are given) opportunities na ganito (like this) that’s why pinagiigihan pa namin yung (we’re diligent with our) training,” he added.

Justin explained: “With training and improvement, the situation will give us more opportunities and we’ll work harder for that.”

“WYAT” is a disco-pop track they’ve already performed during the Our Zone concert.

Brothers Pablo (leader, main rapper and lead vocalist) and Josue thought “WYAT” was a bit bland so they decided to redo it, which led to its success in 14 different countries and topping the iTunes charts of the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Qatar, and UAE.

Apart from the fresh track, the quintet is gearing up for its first ever international concert, “WYAT” World Tour, with confirmed stops in Manila, Cebu, Clark, Davao as well as Dubai, New York, Los Angeles, and Singapore. More dates will be added soon.

“Ang haba din ng inantay namin (We waited for a while) since nag pandemic. Nagkaroon kami ng (We had) frustrations kasi ang daming (because there were a lot of) limitations. Hindi kami
nakapag-events masyado, naging complicated lahat (We weren’t able to do that much events and everything became complicated). Now that bumabalik na yung normal (normal is coming back), we’re very confident na we’ll be taking this to the next level,” Josh said.

“Sisiguraduhin namin na dadalhin namin yung Filipino talent sa global stage (We’ll make sure to bring Filipino talent to the global stage),” he added.
