After winning last year’s “Pinoy Boyband Superstar,” Ford Valencia, João Constancia, Niel Murillo, Russell Reyes, and Tristan Ramirez of BoybandPH continue their musical journey and prove they have what it takes to be called the country’s first ultimate boyband.
The music scene’s newest singing heartthrobs have finally released their highly anticipated self-titled first album – a collection of love songs that fans heard for the first time in two-sold out grand album launch events last week.
“It’s overwhelming and surreal. We didn’t expect to release an album so soon, just a month after the competition. Now, we have all these shows where we get to bond with our fans and we’re enjoying it so far,” said Russell.
“I still can’t believe we’re here, I’m trying to wrap my head around it,” said Joao about their sold-out shows. “We promise not to disappoint the fans, because we’re definitely having the time of our lives.”
Their debut album includes their catchy single, “Unli,” which has been topping radio charts since its release. The song, whose music video features singer-actress Janella Salvador, can now be streamed on Spotify and Apple Music.
Other tracks include a cover of Depeche Mode’s “Somebody”, and originals “Boyfriend,” “Magmamahal,” their winning song “We Made It,” and the acoustic version of “Boyfriend.”
Having performed the songs in their album launch, the boys said they are encouraged by the positive feedback posted by their fans about their songs.
“Our fans matter a lot to us, because they have been supportive of all of us since the beginning. We had the most amazing time recording the album, and we’re happy to have finally shared it with them,” Ford said.
“We dedicate this to our families, friends, and especially to our fans and supporters. Our dreams have come true, but this is just the beginning. There’s more to watch out for,” shared Tristan.
Moreover, the boys also said they have gotten better and better at performing as a group.
Niel, the group’s youngest, said, “We’ve learned so much from ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar.’ I gained confidence, we all did. We became more comfortable with our voice and now we’re moving as one.’
“BoybandPH” is overall produced by Jonathan Manalo, Kidwolf, and Kiko Salazar under Star Music. It is now available at all record stores nationwide.

Matapos magwagi sa “Pinoy Boyband Superstar,” handa nang patunayan nina Ford Valencia, João Constancia, Niel Murillo, Russell Reyes, at Tristan Ramirez ang kanilang ibubuga bilang isang boyband.
Handog ng pinakabagong singing heartthrobs ng bansa ang isang koleksyon ng nakakakilig na love songs sa kanilang inaaabangang self-titled debut album na “BoybandPH.”
“It’s overwhelming and surreal. We didn’t expect to release an album so soon, isang buwan lang after the competition. Ngayon, may mga shows kami at nakakapag-bond kami kasama ang fans at ine-enjoy talaga namin,” sabi ni Russell.
“Hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na nandito kami,” pahayag ni Joao tungkol sa dalawang sold-out grand album launch events nila. “We promise na hindi namin idi-disappoint ang fans, because we’re definitely having the time of our lives.”
Kasama sa debut album nila ang kasulukuyang single nilang “Unli,” na ang music video ay tampok ang singer-actress na si Janella Salvador. Kasalukuyan na rin itong nangunguna sa iba’t ibang radio stations at mapapakinggan naman sa Spotify at Apple Music.
Nasa album din ang cover nila ng “Somebody” ng Depeche Mode, at originals na “Boyfriend,” “Magmamahal,” ang winning song nilang “We Made It,” at ang acoustic version ng “Boyfriend.”
Positibo naman ang feedback ng kanilang fans sa mga kanta nila matapos nila itong i-perform sa kanilang album launch.
“Sobrang saya namin sa mga nakikita naming sinasabi nila sa social media. Sobrang supportive nila sa amin sa simula pa lang, at ang saya lang namin na maririnig na nila ang mga kanta,” sabi ni Ford.
“Dine-dedicate namin ‘to sa mga pamilya at kaibigan namin, lalo na sa fans at supporters. Natupad na ang mga pangarap namin, pero simula pa lang ‘to. Marami pa silang dapat abangan,” ani Tristan.
Ayon sa boys, mas gumagaling na rin sila sa pagpe-perform bilang grupo.
Pagbabahagi ni Niel, ang bunso ng grupo, “Ang dami talaga naming natutunan sa ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar.’ Nagka-confidence ako, kaming lahat. Mas kumportable na kami ngayon sa boses namin, and kumbaga we move as one.’
Ang “BoybandPH” ay ipinrodus nina Jonathan Manalo, Kidwolf, at Kiko Salazar under Star Music. Mabibili na ito sa record bars nationwide.
