5 Things To Know About SB19’s New Single, Nyebe, Before Their Homecoming Concert On 18 Dec

Nyebe – new single by SB19

SB19 fans will now have a new song to rave about as the rising P-Pop boy band just released a new single, Nyebe, which introduces a different side of the pop group.

On that note, here are 5 things to know about Sb19’s new single, Nyebe that’ll help you learn more about it before their upcoming homecoming concert.

1. The song is a winter ballad that shows off the band’s emotional side

From the Filipino word for snow, Nyebe was written by leading member Pablo with the help of Filipino singer-songwriter and long-time collaborator Thyro Alfaro.  The winter ballad falls under the R&B genre and showcases not just the band’s contemplative and emotional side but also their vocal chops.

This is different from their usually high-energy music and complex dance performances.

With its winter theme, it’s even a great seasonal song for the holiday.

2. It explores themes of sadness, longing, and warmth

While their songs are usually upbeat and make you want to dance, their new single takes a surprisingly opposite direction. It begins with three reflective questions: What is uncertainty? What is longing? What is hopelessness?

The song then dives into themes of sadness, longing, and warmth.

Songwriter Pablo reportedly explained, “I was thinking about the feeling of hopelessness, knowing and accepting that things are changing too fast. Time doesn’t stop, things around us happen so fast. At the end of the day, matutunaw rin ang nyebe (snow will melt). We just have to live with it and pray, there is always a ray of hope.”

3. The single’s official visualizer includes snippets of their world tour

If you’ve seen the song’s official visualizer, you might have noticed that it features behind-the-scenes snippets of their three-month WYAT (Where You AT) world tour, which included live shows in Singapore, Dubai, and the US.

It also showcases emotional points during their tour. One scene depicts LA’s famous Venice Beach, with a quote: “Moods of the sea change quickly like me” and another shows a man walking alone in a forest.

While the beginning of the black-and-white video portrays aloneness (with a singular person in every shot), it ends on an inspiring note – with all the band members coming together as a group.

4. It was first publicly teased at SB19’s Our Zone online concert in 2021

SB19 member Josh was reported saying that Nyebe had been written even before their WYAT world tour began. It was teased in front of a massive online audience during their virtual anniversary concert Our Zone in Nov 2021, together with a teaser of their eponymous single WYAT.

The official release of this single foretells the coming of a new album in the near future and fans are at the edge of their seats waiting to see what’s next for the rising P-pop group.
