This new project comes as the latest Ben&Ben collaboration, following the remake of their 2017 single 'Leaves' featuring DAY6's Young K. The nine-piece band are slated to release a new album later this year.
SB19 most recently released their single 'MAPA' which they shared to be a tribute to their parents who shaped them to be the people they are today. The group will be hosting an online concert, titled BACK IN THE ZONE this July.
