A year after their debut isn’t actually enough to tell the story of CHRLS, Yuuki, JP and Sev, collectively known as Press Hit Play or PHP. These four boys have been performing for years now before their offcial debut. To say the least that it was never easy, but defnitely worth all the risks just to be able to reach where they are now.
Coming from different groups, joining and winning a couple of competitions before, it was a long road ahead before becoming PHP. Now that they are considered as one of the powerhouse supergroups in P-POP, a rising community being spotlighted nowadays, they are ready to show their ever-growing fans their real story.
Their new single “Sambit” has been performed in front of thousands of P-POP fans who attended their frst major live stint in April. It was defnitely an overwhelming feeling as they managed to get through the song performance with all of them in tears. This led to the curiosity and excitement of fans.
Co-wrote by songwriter/producer JP, looks back on his journey while writing the song. “When I left my former company, I was about to work overseas. I refected on what I really wanted to do in my life and I realized, it was music, still is and will always be. That’s when I was able to start penning the frst verse of the song up until the chorus.” He decided to go and pursue his passion that led him to join and win a contest where he was sent to Korea to be trained. And after being recruited back to PHP, that’s when the song was fnally fnished. “This is more about our struggles. And also our inspiration to move forward and reach our dreams, which are the people around us who continue to support and cheer on us, those who are with us every step of the way.” lead vocalist, CHRLS added. “I want to tell people our message of comfort through the song. Just like our debut track, it is inspirational but this one has an emotional touch to it.” Sev, the youngest of the bunch and the main vocalist, expresses his intent to motivate the listeners who will be able to hear their new track.
When asked about the part of the song which they can relate to the most, main dancer, Yuuki answered, “The second verse for me. That’s where the part that says that we are in charge of the path we take. That we can’t be afraid of the big hurdles along the way cause there will always be one.”
“Sambit” encapsulates the group’s journey from starting their singing careers individually, to getting to know each other through the competitions they joined, to joining forces and building their cover group. Now with Press Hit Play, there are still struggles coming around but what’s important is whoever stays, who keeps on walking with them until the end.
Any individual who gets to listen to this new single who are currently struggling on things, whether their careers, studies, will relate to this through the lyrics as well as the heart-pounding melody that goes along with it. It will defnitely be a candidate for the soundtrack of your life. Needless to say, their new single “Sambit” is ready to make the fans feel heart-warming emotions and cement the group’s name in the music scene.
