According to Bandwagon, the song – written by SB19 member Pablo (real name John Pablo Nase) – made its debut during the group’s third-anniversary concert in November.
SB19’s latest single comes several days after they were named as Philippines’ Youth and Sentro Rizal ambassadors by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) on December 17.
Formed by the NCCA in 2011, Sentro Rizal is the Philippines’ cultural center for overseas Filipinos and those interested in all things Filipino. The announcement also came shortly after the band topped Billboard’s 24-hour Hot Trending Songs chart.
