Phil. Star | Gary V hopes old songs get second chance at the charts

Gary Valenciano and Martin Nievera taped the final episode of their game show "Twist and Shout" last Friday. Gary V said their contract for the show is good for one season only.

"Our contract is only for one season. We actually went over for a few weeks. It's been a great ride for both Martin and I," said Gary V at the press launch of his new, full-length studio album titled "Replay," under Universal Records.

Will he miss the show? "I will miss the show very much, especially when I'm on Twitter, tapos may nagsasabi na, oh we're watching 'Twist and Shout' now. Especially people from abroad, na very stressful ang way of life, they say that watching 'Twist and Shout' over the weekend is like a stress-reliever for them. [So] I will miss it certainly. Now if ABS-CBN comes up with another show like this, I don't mind being a part of it," said Mr. Pure Energy.

Now, Gary V's also busy with his return to the recording scene via "Replay." This is Gary's 25th full-length studio album and its concept is centered on the idea of providing Gary V's previously recorded songs-all culled from his past multi-platinum albums-a second chance in the mainstream, since they did not make it to the top of the charts at the time of their release.

The album's carrier single is titled "Did It Ever" which Gary performed at his most recent concert series at the Music Museum titled "Gary V: Soul In Motion." The said song was included in the album "Relevance" which spawned such hits as "Wait Forever" and "Shake It Off."

If we would be willing to give a second chance to a person, would we be open to granting a second chance to a song from the past to become today's hit? Get a copy of "Replay" and find out for yourselves.
