There was one thing certain in the local music scene just before everyone went into quiet reflection over the Holy Week. That Pinoy-Pop or P-Pop has invincibly arrived and is here to stay as a legit genre all on its own.
What's more, this remarkably high energy and extremely all-good vibes kind of sound clearly has the overflowing potential to finally break into the international scene and — albeit long, long, long-overdue — raise the flag of the already globally renowned Filipino talent for all to appreciate.
Now all this good news and unfettered excitement come from the grand launch of Cornerstone Entertainment Inc.'s P-Pop Siblings Group, the all-girls G22 and all-boy VXON (pronounced “Vision”) at the Grand Ballroom of B Hotel in Quezon City.
As soon as the lights went off, it was all about the music and the talent of the four femme fatales and five-man sing and dance machines to the very end of the explosive event.
“Performing is our passion, and we're just thankful that we have been given this platform to share our music with the rest of the nation — or maybe even reach the rest of the world,” chimed G22 leader AJ.
With her gal pals Bianca, Alfa and Jaz, she added, “We're open to any possibilities in this new and exciting journey for us. But for now, our goal is to make music that our supporters can enjoy.”
Tagged as “P-Pop's Newest Caliber,” G22 successfully released its fierce female anthem, “Bang,” early this summer. Blazing hot indeed from their powerful performance and overall style package, it is evident that the direction they are geared for is full throttle and unstoppably forward.
Even their name and the titles of their original songs — more of which, they promise, is soon to come — are smokin' hot. “G22” obviously alluding to a Glock22 that goes “Bang” for their vast and growing fanbase dubbed “Bullets.”
“The 'G' is open to interpretation '22' is this, the year our group's been launched,” offered pretty and statuesque Alfa, who partly grew up in Australia.
P-Pop's Newest Caliber is actually a spin-off from the success of VXON, a.k.a. “The Monster Rookies of P-Pop,” VXON.
Already amassing downloads for their first two singles, “The Beast” and “PS,” the pair of original songs took the industry by surprise for capturing a modern-sounding but equally incredible pair of tunes. Not only do they showcase the boys' unlimited range for music and dance, but they also fit their personalities to a tee.
The group's name, of course, refers to their goal in their very new career: “We are united by one vision to help uplift P-Pop and inspire others through our music.”
Indeed, this group of five tremendously talented young men – Patrick, C13, Franz, Sam, and Vince – have discovered the very path to realize their dream, treading it devotedly as their fanbase, the “Vixies,” are loyally lined up on either side to the very end.
Both G22 and VXON brought the house down at the P-Pop Convention 2022 early this April and proved to their management and fans that they can hold their own side by side with the forebears of this progressively growing genre.
Our eyes and best wishes are with you guys and gals. Keep it real, and keep going far and wide.
Mabuhay ang P-Pop!
