While a title for the track has yet to be revealed, SB19’s tweet included a #MAPA hashtag, the title of their most recent single. It is currently unclear if the upcoming collaboration will be a rework of ‘MAPA’ featuring Ben&Ben or a new song entirely.
SB19 released ‘MAPA’ in mid-May. The track – their second from their upcoming sophomore album – paid homage to the group members’ parents for their guidance and support.
Prior to the release of ‘MAPA’, SB19 released ‘What?’ in March alongside a music video and accompanying documentary series. The track is the lead single for the band’s second album, which has yet to receive a release date.
The P-pop group are also set to hold a virtual concert dubbed Back In The Zone on July 18. The ticketed event will see the group perform tracks from their debut album, as well as their recent singles.
Ben&Ben, on the other hand, have released two singles this year – ‘Upuan’ and ‘Magpahinga’ – from their upcoming sophomore album, which is expected for release in August.
In late May, the band enlisted DAY6 member Young K for a remake of their 2017 single ‘Leaves’.
