I’d been a boy band fan ever since elementary days. From “Backstreet Boys,” “Westlife” and “N’Sync”, these are the boy group bands who help me appreciate pop music, even today. Nowadays, there’s new breed of boy bands out there that’s promising and full of talent. one of it is the newest band “In Real Life.”
In Real Life also known as IRL is a boy band from the American reality television music competition series Boy Band, which premiered June 22, 2017, on ABC. The band is composed of the final five vocalists from the show namely, Brady Tutton, Chance Perez, Drew Ramos, Sergio Calderon, and Michael Conor.
The band, who won the ABC summer reality competition, debuted their first single, “Eyes Closed” on the show’s finale. It went on to debut at the top of the iTunes charts, and reached #3 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart. “Eyes Closed” was performed for the first time on the finale of Boy Band after they were voted together by America, a first in US television history.
In Real Life is a a pop boy band that experiments with other sounds such as pop-rap, dance-pop, teen pop and Latin pop. They cite One Direction as their main influence and are compared to them for both starting off on reality television. The BackStreet Boys, Boyz II Men, Jackson 5, Charlie Puth, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, Jay-Z, and Eminem have influenced individual members of the group.
This November, the band will capture the heart of every Pinoy with their music such as “Tonight Belongs to You,” with 5.4 million views on Youtube in just 3 months and Tattoo with 2.3 million views as of the moment.
And recently, they toured around the metro for their first international tour to Manila dubbed as Tonight Belongs To You Tour Philippines! They are scheduled to do a series shows from November 3 thru November 12, 2018.
I was able to saw them performed live at SM Southmall to show what they got to their fans. As part of their mall tour, I was able to hear and see how talented and cool these guys are. They welcome fans and audience with smiles and performed their hearts out to their original songs. It’s indeed a delight seeing them dance and sing to their adorable fans.
