To close off the year, SB19‘s FELIP — who is also known as Ken — has released a new single titled “Kanako” — out now on all digital platforms via Warner Music Philippines.

The single, which deviates away from his signature rap style, features a primarily rock sound with lyrics in both English and Bisaya. This soul-stirring ballad delves into the FELIP’s personal journey of overcoming loneliness and discovering profound love and acceptance through the embrace and care of a newfound partner.

In this emotionally charged composition, FELIP bares his soul to his listeners –– sharing the depths of his struggles with isolation and the transformative power of love. The lyrics weave a poignant narrative, reflecting the universal theme of seeking connection and the solace found in the arms of a compassionate companion.

Despite being officially released less than twelve hours ago, “Kanako” has already reached the #1 spot on the iTunes Philippines chart –– marking the most digital sales in the country, together with SB19 co-member Josh Cullen whose latest single “GET RIGHT” holds the #2 spot on the charts.

Just recently, FELIP, together with his SB19 co-members, attended Asia Artist Awards held at the Philippine Arena. Not only did SB19 manage to deliver a phenomenal performance on the international stage, but the Kings of P-Pop were able to take home two awards for the night, the “Best Artist Award (Singer)” and the “AAA Hot Trend Award”

Also this year, FELIP released his EP titled “COM – PLEX” earlier on in February, and participated in Warner Music Philippines’ 30th Anniversary celebration with the special cover to Never The Strangers’ “Moving Closer”.
