SB19 is one of the country's fastest rising new artists. The group is made up of Sejun, Stell, Ken, Josh, and Justin, all of whom trained in South Korea under a Korean entertainment company. 

They are best known for "Go Up," which went viral earlier this year. 

The group, highly influenced by K-pop, has been singing in Tagalog because its goal is to promote OPM abroad. 

SB19's concert at Cuneta Astrodome on Saturday sold out in less than three minutes, with about 3,500 tickets sold. 

"Alab (Burning)" is the group's first single since signing with Sony Music Philippines.
