MANILA - Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo is staying put with Viva Records amid speculation that she is jumping ship to a different recording company.
Geronimo said her duet with Asia's Pop Idol Christian Bautista for the latter's new album is not an indication of a possible move. Bautista recently moved from record label Warner Music Philippines to Universal Records.
Geronimo explained that the Viva allowed her to do a duet of Jose Mari Chan's hit "Please Be Careful With My Heart" with Bautista.
"Hindo po sa Viva Records pa din ako. (Malakas lang po talaga sa akin si Christian?) Naman. Pero personally po gusto ko talagang maka-duet si Christian and ngayon lang nabigyan ng chance na mangyari na.
For Bautista, he said he didn't have a hard time asking permission from Viva to allow Geronimo to record a song with him.
"(Hindi naman kami nahirapan). More of schedule (ang naging problema). Kasi busy siya at ako din parang more of finding the right schedule and the right song. Ang galing din ng management namin at walang nasasagasaang ibang plans," Bautista said.
As his first project with Universal Records, Bautista is now recording a 20-track album containing remakes of songs popularized by Chan.
Bautista’s still untitled album highlights the young balladeer’s version of “I Have Fallen In Love (With The Same Woman Three Times)" - Chan's tribute song to the Philippines’ Icon of Democracy President Corazon “Cory” Aquino.
The record will also include remakes of Chan’s classics “Tell Me Your Name,” “My Girl My Woman My Friend” (a duet with Regine Velasquez), “Here And Now” (a duet with Lani Misalucha), “A Heart’s Journey” (a duet with Jose Mari Chan), “Constant Change,” “Refrain,” “Can’t We Start Over Again,” “I Remember The Girl,” “Stay My Love,” “Be Gentle,” “So I’ll Go,” “Can We Just Stop And Talk Awhile,” “Deep In My Heart,” “Afterglow,” “Afraid For Love To Fade,” “A Love To Last A Lifetime” and “Christmas Past.”
After being romantically linked to singer Karylle, there are now rumors that Bautista has his eyes set on Geronimo.
Bautista said there is no truth to the rumors, adding that he is just a good friend of Geronimo. For the Pop Star Princess she said that she only sees Bautista as an older brother.
"Ako okay lang maging kuya. Ang tagal na naming magkasama ni Sarah every since naging friends kami. Kahit tinatawag kaming kuya it's an honor na someone look up to you as a kuya," Bautista ended.
