It was after that viral dance practice video posted on Twitter that everything fell into place. It spelled overnight success that brought about a surge of more than 500,000 subscribers in Youtube, a spike of hundred thousands of followers in all their official social media accounts and a total of more than 5.5 Million views in their official music videos (Tilaluha and Go Up) that all happened in a span of 4 months. This massive success welcomed an opportunity for the group to have a memorable end to their 2019, all by conducting a free nationwide tour and releasing a new single – “ALAB”.
“ALAB” is a product of SB19’s passion not only to their dreams but as well as for love. The “fire” shows the intensity and heat they can offer to anything and everything they love. Love can be a game of chase, such as attempting to catch the attention of someone you admire. A simple infatuation can turn into a deeper admiration that inspires you to take action even with the fear of being rejected. It highlights the action of pursuing the person you like no matter the obstacle.
Premiered this January 9, it already garnered 1.6M views as of this writing. As of the day of the release, it trended top spot for both worldwide and Philippine Trends with a total of more than 300,000+ tweets. Aside from the top spot in trends, it also climbed up the number 1 spot in MYX Daily Top 10 in just 2 days of entering the chart.
Concomitantly this success paved way for SB19 to execute their nationwide concert covering 10 cities – with the pioneer concert that happened in Bacolod this 22nd.
This sold out concert, with 3,000 A’TIN occupying the Kasilayan Gymnasium in Negros Occidental, witnessed the group’s talent and virtuosity with each member performing solo for the first time.
