After several Billboard chart appearances, SB19 continues to gain global popularity!
The OPM boy group secured a sweet spot in the American fashion magazine Teen Vogue, joining K-pop sensation BTS and the iconic British band The Beatles.
On July 14, 2022, Teen Vogue published an article on their website titled "Our Favorite Boy Bands of All Time," listing 34 global groups of various music genres and eras.
SB19 was the 18th band on the list.
Joining them are other iconic boy groups such as The Beatles, Boyz II Men, One Direction, Backstreet Boys, Westlife, *NSYNC, Five Seconds of Summer, and The Jonas Brothers, among others.
Korean groups BTS, EXO, SEVENTEEN, Big Bang, SHINee, Monsta X, and Seo Taiji and the Boys also made it to the list.
The article said (published as is): "Josh, Pablo, Stell, Ken, and Justin are the five members of the Filipino boy band known as SB19.
“They were formed in 2016 after winning a talent search, going on to release a studio album along with eight singles.
“They’ve continued achieving heights of popularity in early 2022 with the release of their hit 'Bazinga.'”
This is not the first time that SB19 was recognized by a teen magazine.
In July 2021, Teen Vogue's Best New Music Friday described SB19's electronic hip-hop single "Bazinga" as "a hallmark of a great 21st-century pop mash."
"Bazinga" set a record on Billboard's Hot Trending Songs chart in January 2021. It broke the record previously held by BTS' 2021 hit song "Butter."
SB19 is the first Korean-trained Filipino idol group that has earned international recognition. The five-member group is composed of Josh, Pablo, Stell, Justin, and Ken.
