SB19 composed of Pablo, Josh, Justin, Ken, and Stell has finally released the music video for “Bazinga,” the third song off their critically praised EP, Pagsibol.
The song video, set in an underground fighting zone, depicts the multi-award-winning quartet defeating their opponents in an Arcade combat game. Like classic SB19 spirit, it also serves as a call to arms against the unjustified attacks leveled at the P-Pop group since their beginning.
“One way to lighten the load is by writing a song that proves that we won’t back down to the negative comments and we’ll persevere,” SB19 shared. “As it says from the lyrics, ‘Hate niyo’y gasolina’ – we continue to flourish and emerge as better individuals, despite the hostility.”
According to the press release, Jonathan Tal Placido directed the “Bazinga” music video, which was co-directed by Chapters, the production company behind the post-apocalyptic “What?” video. Additionally, SB19‘s member Justin de Dios also extensively contributed to the material’s idea, which merges elements of graffiti, gaming, and superhero noir against a chaotic yet visually appealing anti-establishment landscape.
“The BBMA nomination was a big, big thing for us already. Now being nominated for the EMAs, which is another prestigious and well-known award-giving body, has us so overjoyed,” SB19 says.
“And being backed up by our loved ones, and A’TIN, further motivates us to keep pushing on. We hope to keep up the traction and to hit our goals of introducing Philippine music globally.”
Sony Music Philippines will be releasing an exclusive line of merch slated to drop before Christmas.
