More of Belle Mariano and P-Pop collabs, please.
In her opening performance for Kim Soo Hyun’s Manila fanmeet earlier this year, Belle Mariano proved that she can serve fire and pop star energy on stage effortlessly. While Belle is not a stranger when it comes to special stage numbers, that moment just reinforced that Belle Mariano is such a talented gem to marvel at. And this is once again foregrounded in Belle’s first-ever performance collab with P-Pop girl group BINI on ASAP Natin ‘To, which shows how she can very well be their ninth member.
BINI X BELLE
In case you missed it, on the February 12, 2023 episode of the musical variety show ASAP Natin’ To, Gen Z leading lady Belle Mariano took to the stage with BINI, this time channeling her P-Pop girl group spirit and leaving us all stunned as ever. Joined by Aiah, Colet, Maloi, Gwen, Stacey, Mikha, Jhoanna, and Sheena, the phenomenal star literally shines in her glittery red ensemble while she sings and dances to BINI’s hit song Na Na Na.
And no joke, Belle blends with the BINI girls so gracefully, it’s hard not to think that she’s a member of the nation’s girl group. Every note, every move, every projection matches BINI’s signature brightness and precision so naturally it screams girl power multiplied by nine. And take this, according to BINI’s main rapper and lead dancer Mikha, Belle only had a day to learn the music’s intricate choreography. Belinda be really making us stan hard every day.
Oh, and if you need a more focused and unadulterated view of Belle Mariano as a BINI center, here’s a fancam (among others) edit for your perusal. Knowing how Belle is a decorated OPM recording artist herself, having won the Awit Awards best song award for her He’s Into Her original track Sigurado last year, it’s always heartening to see special collabs like this. Will we be seeing more of it in Belle’s second album? Fingers crossed!
