"'SB' stans for Sound Break, meaning breaking into the music scene here in the Philippines, and also to promote, of course, Filipino music and Filipino culture to the world stage," said main vocalist Stell.

Pablo, the group's leader, said the members chose to train under ShowBT Philippines because "it's a Korean company."

"And we know that Korean entertainment is very flourished, it's very successful and they have their own system to train their talents," said Pablo, who also recounted the group's breakthrough after a dance practice clip for their second single "Go Up" went viral.

"That's why we came up with the name 'Sound Break,' It means breaking into the music industry in the Philippines, and I think hopefully in the world as well, and I think that's what we're doing right now," Josh said.

"We're very lucky and fortunate that we were able to do it, slowly but surely," he added.

In December, SB19 wrapped up its ""Where You At" world tour, which made stops in the United States, United Arab Emirates and Singapore.
