P-pop group SB19 holds its ground among the biggest artists in the world in terms of popularity from social media, YouTube, and streaming sites.

US-based music charts site Billboard revealed last week that SB19 has been listed 6th in its Top Social 50 Artists of 2020, joining the likes of  EXO, BTS, NCT 127, Seventeen, and Ariana Grande.

They are the only Southeast Asian group in Billboard’s Social Artists Top 10 for 2020.

In response to their momentous achievement SB19 told Billboard on Twitter. “Thank you for the recognition.”

They also expressed their gratitude towards their fans, dubbed “A’TIN”: “And of course, to our beloved A’TIN, thank you for all of the unimaginable plot twists in our life. Too grateful to have you. Stay amazing, guys!”

Billboard’s Social 50 list ranks the most popular artists based on data (increase in fans and followers count, page views etc.) from social media, YouTube, and streaming sites.

SB19 debuted in 2018 and rocketed to popularity with their hit, “Go Up.”

They released their debut album, “Get in the Zone”, last July that included other songs such as “Alab” and “Hanggang sa Huli.”
