AllMusic Review by

Popular in 2002, the Sexbomb Girls is composed of young girls who sing on a daily Philippine noontime television show. The group appears during a segment that features a popular contest, during which contestants must decide whether or not they want to risk their winnings and continue playing the game. While the contestants decide, the Sexbomb Girls sings words like "Do you want to fight or give up?" For the Sexbomb Girls' three-song EP, Bakit Papa? (Why Papa?), the group sings an entire song, "Bakit Papa?" (Why Papa?), built around the "do you want to fight or give up?" concept. The rest of the lyrics, which were added only for this EP and aren't sung during the contest, are about a girl whose former boyfriend left her. She questions why and tells him that plenty of other guys like her. This is a novelty album, and the music and instrumentation are bouncy, catchy, and sort of silly. Despite the group's sexy name, there is no sexually oriented material on this album. The Sexbomb Girls also mention during "Bakit Papa?" some of the male actors who appear on the show. "Crush Kita" is also bouncy and silly, and also mentions the male actors. The remaining song, "Di Ko Na Mapipigilan," (Can't Stop Anymore), is a straightforward love song without any silliness, and is about a girl who can't stop loving her boyfriend.
