SB19, BGYO, Alamat featured in MsMojo’s list of most notable international bands
P-pop groups SB19, BGYO and Alamat secured the second, fifth and seventh place, respectively, on MsMojo’s list of most notable international groups that are “stepping into the global spotlight.”
MsMojo, the sister channel of Canada-based pop culture platform WatchMojo, released a video featuring the “Top 10 International Bands You Should Know About” through its YouTube channel on Friday, April 28.
SB19 was described as the “Filipino game-changers” who rose above the rest, and whose legacy is their “dedication to representation and philanthropy.”
“Not only are they excelling within P-pop but the band is also making Southeast Asian music history along the way,” it said. “In bringing their culture to the more traditional K-pop model, the group’s soaring popularity is helping put the Pinoy music scene on the mainstream map.”
BGYO, known as the “Aces of P-pop,” was recognized by the pop culture platform for being “eager to take their culture and signature style worldwide.”
“The band’s roots will always be in the P-pop scene but they have also set their sights on international success,” it spoke of the quintet.
Alamat, meanwhile, was described as the multi-ethnic Filipino group that “weaves their Filipino influence into everything” and whose music “tackles colonialism, references ancient legends and features a diverse range of languages and style.”
“Garnering praise for their talent and authenticity, the group reportedly became the second P-pop act to earn a spot on the Billboard charts. At the end of the day, Alamat isn’t afraid to stay true to themselves and they have dedicated their career to representing their culture to the world,” it stated.
The other seven bands included in MsMojo’s top-10 list are Uni5, Now United, Bella Dose, Be:First, JO1, Flo and XG, which earned the No. 1 spot. /ra
