MANILA, Philippines — P-pop group SB19 will vie for a nomination at the 2024 Grammy Awards after submitting its popular song "Gento" in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.

SB19's record label Sony Music Philippines confirmed "Gento" was approved as an entry. The label is pushing for its nomination in its "For Your Consideration (FYC)" posts on social media.

One post noted that SB19 was recognized by Forbes magazine as the "first Filipino band to reach the World Digital Song Sales chart."

Voting members of the Recording Academy will have until October 20 to make their selections. The official list of nominees will be announced on November 10, ahead of the 66th Grammy Awards on February 4, 2024.

SB19 faces heavy competition. "Karma" remix by Taylor Swift feat. Ice Spice, "Barbie Dreams" by FIFTY FITY feat. Kaliii, another FIFTY FIFTY song "Cupid," "The Loneliest Time" by Carly Rae Jepsen feat. Rufus Wrainwright and "Vulgar" by Sam Smith and Madonna are also vying for nods in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.

Should either of FIFTY FIFTY's songs get nominated, it will be the first Korean girl group to be nominated for a Grammy; the only K-pop act to be Grammy-nominated is BTS, who was nominated thrice in the same category.

Despite BTS being on hiatus, the group could still make the cut with "Take Two" and "The Planet," while members Jungkook ("Seven" with Latto), J-Hope ("On The Street" with J. Cole), RM ("Wild Flower" with youjeen) and Jimin ("Angel Pt. 1") are up for solo nods.

The first ballot of the 2024 Grammys sees 642 tracks vying for Song of the Year, 615 songs up for Record of the Year, 592 competing for Best Music Video, 476 albums vying for Album of the Year and 405 artists up for Best New Artist.
