The lyric video has 100,065,656 views as of this writing.

The P-pop quintet also thanked their fans, or A’TIN, in an Instagram Live on the same day.

SB19’s leader Pablo said there was a time when “Mapa” was played on multiple platforms and that it has been covered by many singers, likening this to the impact of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”

“Nakakatuwa rin naman kasi ‘yung ‘Mapa’ ay para sa mga magulang. Hindi siya basta-basta (It makes us happy because ‘Mapa’ is for our parents. It’s not just any song),” he added.

Creating ‘Mapa’s’ lyric video

On his Instagram account, the lyric video’s director Jonathan Tal Placido shared glimpses of its creative process, where one of the photos showed feedback from SB19’s Justin via its producer.

“Noong 2021 tinanong ako ni Kath kung marunong ako mag motion graphics… ang sagot ko? ‘Yups Whyez,’” he wrote. “Sino mag aakala yun pala ang 1st project ko with @officialsb19… happy 100 [million], ‘Mapa!’ Congrats A’tin!”

(Back in 2021, Kath asked me if I knew how to do motion graphics. My answer? “Yup, why?” Who knew that would be my first project with SB19? Happy 100 million, “Mapa!” Congrats, A’TIN!)
