Malaya | Regine releases ‘Fantasy’

It’s but natural that Regine Velasquez sings of love a few days before her altar date with long-time beau Ogie Alcasid on December 22 in Batangas.

So for her "swan song" to singlehood, the country’s most successful songstress give a paean to love via "Fantasy," her latest release from Universal Records.

Regine says she is very thankful to Universal Records for "Fantasy" as she was given the chance to sing well-loved classics and original Pinoy music.

The album has 22 tracks. Its carrier single is an original composition of Ogie, a ballad entitled "You Don’t Know." Its refrain goes: "You don’t know how it feels to be loved/ To be touched by an angel, be swept away./You’ll never know just what it means/ When you make me believe that love is real/ And this could be forever/You’ll never know how it feels to love."

The song’s music video, directed by Nani Naguit, is already being seen on top music channels.

The first disc with all-original OPM material has the works of today’s most talented songwriters: Francis "Kix Salazar ("Been Waiting"), Ramon Luis Silvestre ("Always," a duet with Jay Perillo), Nyoy Volante ("This Time"), Janno Gibbs ("True Romance"), Edwin Marollano ("Sana’y Laging Ganito"), Chito Miranda ("OK Lang Ako"), Noel Mendez ("Fairy Tale" and "S.M.I.L.E."), Robin Nievera ("Smile"), Isabela Ledesma ("Funny One"), and another song by Ogie, "Walang Iba."

In Disc 2, Regine belts out Gerard Kenny’s "Fantasy," America’s "All My Life," Paul Davis’ "I Go Crazy," Heart’s "What About Love," Madonna’s "Papa Don’t Preach," Lighthouse’s "You And Me," Clair Marlo’s "Without Me," Landon Pigg’s "Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop," The Eagles’ "Love Will Keep Us Alive," and Five For Fighting’s "Dying."

"Fantasy" is a collector’s fantasy. It is a beautiful album – literally and figuratively. The double-disc is presented in two ways. Fans may choose (or buy both) the black and white package or the colored box set. Both include rare, sensual and sizzling photos of the bride-to-be taken by top lensman Mark Nicdao. Each box set contains 10 sets of post cards that are in color and in black and white.
