P-pop girl group BINI disclosed that the release date — which falls on International Women’s Day — of their upcoming EP “Talaarawan” is meant to be a celebration of their advocacy for women empowerment.

On Valentine’s Day, BINI announced that their first EP will be released on March 8 during a Valentine’s Day event. When asked by ABS-CBN News in an interview if the release date was an intentional move on their part, the leader Jhoanna said it was a conscious decision as it’s meant to be a “gift” for their fans.


“Napili namin [ang date na ‘to] kasi feeling namin, ang March 8 is a celebration at regalo para sa mga Blooms namin (We chose this date because we feel that March 8 is a celebration and this would be a gift for our Blooms),” Jhoanna said, referring to their dedicated legion of fans.


Mikha, on the other hand, said BINI pushes for women’s empowerment, saying they always wanted to inspire fellow women with their music.

“Our advocacy is women empowerment. We always want to inspire women, and not just women, but we [want to] make sure that people feel confident in their skin. That’s why I think that March 8 is the perfect date,” she said.

Jhoanna also said “Talaarawan,” which is the Filipino word for diary, would be a comforting record for their fans.

“Mafe-feel mo talaga ‘yung journey ng BINI [sa EP na ‘to]. Hindi lang sa family, friends, and hopefully, ma-feel din ng Blooms na para kaming diary nila na pwede nilang pag-open up and ma-feel nila ‘yung comfort sa bawat songs na ire-release namin,” she said.

(You will feel BINI’s journey in this EP. Not only family, and friends, but hopefully also Blooms would feel like we are their diary to open up their thoughts and source of comfort through every song.)

BINI is making waves for their hit song “Pantropiko” which also entered Spotify Philippines’ viral chart last January. They are also known for their songs “Born To Win,” “Na Na Na,” “Lagi,” and “Da Coconut Nut,” just to name a few.


The girl group, who debuted in June 2021, is composed of Jhoanna, Aiah, Colet, Maloi, Gwen, Stacey, Mikha, and Sheena.
