The playlist, hosted on Spotify, features SB19’s personal favourites, songs that they wish they’d written and more. It stemmed from an interview prompt during a livestream with Rolling Stone on Twitch, where host Jon Weigell asked the group about a “dream mixtape” which would reflect the diverse musical preferences of the group’s members.
The group named Travis Scott‘s ‘goosebumps’ and My Chemical Romance‘s ‘Welcome to the Black Parade’ as songs that are in their heads “constantly”, while Singaporean singer-songwriter Sezairi Sezali’s ‘It’s You’ was highlighted as a song “more people need to know about”. Bruno Mars‘ ‘Grenade’, The Carpenters’ ‘Close To You’ and Queen‘s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ were picked out as preferred karaoke songs.
Check out the playlist below.
During the interview, the group was asked about songs that they think more people should listen to. While Pablo stressed the importance of Michael Jackson’s ‘We Are The World’, Stell took the chance to shout out ‘It’s You’.
Upon hearing that SB19 mentioned his song, Sezairi took to social media to acknowledge their co-sign. He also thanked Stell for the shoutout, before adding: “SEA music going places, lets do this”.
Also, shoutout to @stellajero_ for the shoutout. SEA music going places, lets do this. 💪
