New Boyband Clique 5 Launches Its Debut Album With Six Original Songs That Are Potential Hits

CLIQUE5 is a new boyband introduced three months ago with the launch of their Christmas single, “Tuwing Pasko”, managed by 3:16 Events and Talent Management Company. Now, they’re launching their full album with six original songs: “Pwede Ba Teka Muna” (the first single composed by Joven Tan), “Ako Na Lang Sana”, “Bakit Hindi”, “Magmula Ngayon”, “Mabuti Na Lang” and “Sana Naman”.

Two additional members are added to the original five, but their band’s name as Clique5 remains the same. The previous members are: Marco, The Hunk - Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, this balikbayan is a singer, dancer and martial arts expert. He’s the tallest in the group at 6 feet tall.

Karl, The Heartthrob - He’s the mestizo guy in the group and has matinee idol potential, a high school senior at the Philippine Christian University. He has done some TV commercials.

Sean, The Kilabot ng Dance Floor - He used to be part of a dance group that appeared regularly in the late Kuya Germs’ Walang Tulugan.

Josh, The Cutie Bae - A good dancer who has appeared in some TV shows, he’s admirable in that he does not neglect his studies while pursuing a showbiz career.

Clay, The Soul Balladeer - He’s the lead singer and considered the Kuya of the group. He has finished Aircraft Maintenance Technology and used to be lead guitarist and vocalist of a band.

The new band members are: Tim, The Teen Crush - He and his brother Rocky are the newest members of Clique5. They are known as the Rivero Brothers who are also into theatre acting.

Rocky, The Boy Next Door - A great dancer and singer like his brother Tim, both of them have so much charisma and can easily win the hearts of admiring fans.

What’s their difference from other boybands? It’s their manager, Katie from 3:16 Events who replies:

“Total package sila na hindi limited to singing and dancing lang,” she says. “They went through rigid dance workshops under Mia Pangyarihan of SexBomb Dancers, voice lessons under Sweet Plantado of the Company personality development with a group of experts and acting workshop under PETA and Director Emman de la Cruz. In other words, they’re multi-talented and very versatile. We made sure hindi sila hilaw kundi thoroughly prepared bago namin sila isinalang in performing.”

The boys will now be having their first big concert at the Music Museum on February 27, with some special guests. They will sing songs of different genres. Is there any competition among them?

“No, we look at each other as brothers, not rivals or competitors,” they say. “We are here to help and support one another. You can get us individually for acting or modelling, but as singers and dancers, we’ll always be together as Clique5.”
