The LyricFind charts rank the top-trending lyric searches through LyricFind’s syndication service, according to Billboard.
This is far from the first time SB19 made it into the charts of Billboard, however, as the group already previously entered the Social 50 list at number 3 back in July, just behind K-pop superstar groups BTS and EXO.
SB19, the first and only Filipino group to make it to the Social 50 chart so far, debuted at the 28th spot in December 2019. The Social 50 chart ranks musical artists based on their online popularity by tracking their activity on social media platforms.
In November also last year, SB19 also made it to Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart. The P-pop group, composed of Sejun, Josh, Stell, Ken and Justin, was trained by a Korean entertainment company before debuting in the Philippines in 2018. /ra
