SB19 dominates MYX Awards 2021

Pinoy pop group SB19 emerged as the big winner in the MYX Awards 2021, winning three major categories Artist of the Year, Music Video of the Year, and Song of the Year, while Pinoy folk-rock band Asin was honored with the MYX Magna recognition for its major contribution to Original Pilipino Music (OPM). 

SB19, who also dominated last year’s music awards, won Song of the Year for their hit single “Alab” which also won Music Video of the Year for the accompanying visual directed by Julienne Gueco.

OPM icon Lolita Carbon received the MYX Magna award for Asin, the band behind the classics “Balita,” “Masdan Mo Ang Kapaligiran,” and “Himig Ng Pag-ibig” who pioneered the use of traditional Filipino instruments in popular music.
