The group which compose of Akira, Gelo, JL, Mikki, and Nate, considers their Filipino heritage as an asset and aims to reflect in their music.  Known as the “Aces of P-pop,” was the first Filipino pop group to acquire its own Twitter topic.

Following the release of their debut single The Light in 2021, BGYO released their first original soundtrack, He’s Into Her, which garnered them their first major award at the 2021 Asian Academy Creative Awards for “Best Theme Song or Title Theme.” They also became the fifth Filipino artist to appear on the weekly Billboard Next Big Sound chart, where they debuted at number two before immediately moving up to number one for two weeks with the release of their sophomore single, The Baddest.
