New fandoms are rising for Cornerstone Entertainment’s P-Pop groups G22 and VXON.
In the past few months, their fanbases have grown exponentially, and it’s quite understandable why patrons of the genre are noticing these groups that have been dishing out snippets of interesting music and serving some great “visuals.”
“Bagay kayo mag-artista. You all look like celebrities,” a showbiz scribe commented during the grand media launch of the groups held last week at the Grand Ballroom of B Hotel in Quezon City.
“Performing is our passion and we’re just thankful that we are given this platform to share this with our audience,” a member of G22 responded. “We are open to any possibilities, but for now, our goal is to make music that our supporters can enjoy.”
The launching of Cornerstone Entertain-ment’s official P-Pop boy group VXON (read as “vision”) and P-Pop girl group G22 (read as “G-twenty-two”) undoubtedly stirred up much excitement and anticipation from the P-Pop community, eager to see the P-Pop wave rise higher with two new exciting groups adding unique flavors to the budding genre full of possibilities.
Dubbed “The Monster Rookies of P.Pop,” VXON has already released two singles, namely “The Beast” and “P.S.”, two very different sounding but equally captivating singles showing the two sides of the boys’ personalities as a group and as individuals.
The name “VXON” refers to how the group, despite their differences in personalities and life experiences, is united by one vision: to help uplift P-Pop and inspire others.
The official fandom of VXON is called “Vixies.”
Tagged as “P-Pop’s Newest Caliber,” G22 has successfully released its explosive femme fatale-esque debut single entitled “Bang” to the delight of fans whose interests were piqued by the launch of VXON the month prior.
The girls will be having a special surprise very soon so fans should definitely stay tuned. The names “G22” and “Bullets” (the official fandom) actually go hand-in-hand as “G22” is an allusion to a gun (the Glock 22) and a gun cannot work without its bullets. The “G” is open to interpretation but the “22” is indicative of the year of their launch.
Both groups participated and performed in the much-awaited P-Pop Convention 2022 held at the New Frontier Theater and Smart Araneta Coliseum over the weekend. They were joined by other established and up-and-coming P-Pop groups from all across the country.
“Being part of the P-Pop Con allows us to connect with our fans and other idol groups. We are glad and grateful to be surrounded by such amazing talents and P-Pop idols. As rookies, it’s just so surreal,” Jaz, G22’s main vocal told Manila Standard Entertainment.
“We’ve been dreaming of having a P-Pop convention wherein everyone in the community could come together. This event is one for the books,” Franz, VXON’s main vocal, added.
Completing VXON’s members are C13 (leader/main rapper), Patrick (main dancer), Sam (lead rapper/lead vocal), and Vince (visual/lead vocal).
AJ (leader/main rapper), Bianca (main dancer/sub-rapper), and Alfa (visual/lead vocal), on the other hand, complete G22.
