BINI Traverses Through Life's Hurdles in First EP 'Talaarawan' with Key Track 'Salamin, Salamin'

Female pop group BINI brings a vibrant and refreshing sound in their diary-inspired extended play (EP) “Talaarawan” releasing on Friday (March 8).


Members Aiah, Colet, Maloi, Gwen, Stacey, Mikha, Jhoanna, and Sheena tackle the youth’s perspective on friendship, love, and navigating through life in their first mini album that features six songs including “Salamin, Salamin,” “Ang Huling Cha Cha,” “Na Na Nandito Lang,” “Diyan Ka Lang,” and their recent hits “Karera” and “Pantropiko.”

“Very excited kami sa ilalabas namin dahil this will be our first EP. Gusto namin ma-feel ng supporters namin na para nilang kaming diary na pwede nilang lapitan about anything kasi gano’n yung bond namin sa kanila. It’s an open communication,” Jhoanna shared.

Its key track “Salamin, Salamin” produced by Mat Olavides and Bojam of FlipMusic captures the feeling of daydreaming about a potential crush. 

BINI intended to release their highly anticipated EP on International Women’s Day (March 8) to align with their advocacy on women empowerment.


“Our advocacy is also women empowerment. We always want to inspire women, and not just women but we want to make sure that people feel confident in their own skin. That's why I think that March 8 is the perfect date," Mikha shared in an interview with ABS-CBN News.

The group also surprised their fans during the “Talaarawan” EP media conference held last Wednesday with the announcement of their first solo concert happening on June 28 (Friday) at the New Frontier Theater.

With their bubbly, carefree, and quirky image, the ‘nation’s girl group’ continues to reach new heights as their hit single “Pantropiko” has spawned countless dance videos on TikTok and has earned more than six million streams and has also peaked at #3 on Spotify Philippines Viral Chart and debuted at #38 on Spotify Global Viral Chart. The “Pantropiko” fever has also reached global stars such as Irene of Red Velvet and Ryujin of ITZY who did the dance challenge through a fan’s request in a fan call. They are also on the cover of Spotify’s Viral Hit Philippines which features the most viral tracks in the country.

Grateful and hopeful at the song’s success, Johanna said, “Ni-release namin siya sa month ng November and yung ‘Pantropiko’ pang-summer siya. But we feel like ang perfect nung timing kasi nagto-top siya sa charts while papasok yung summer so hopefully magtuloy-tuloy ito,” Jhoanna said.

Feel the sweetness of BINI’s EP “Talaarawan” available on digital streaming platforms this Friday. Official music video is out now!
