Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez is unstoppable! Her newest album "Fantasy" is the overall #1 album in two of country's biggest record retail chains - Astroplus/Astovision and Odyssey! The album has been #1 in all Astroplus/Astovision for 2 consecutive weeks while it debuted at #1 in Odyssey record stores. Sales charts are based on total sales tabulated from close to 200 record stores nationwide! "Fantasy" was also certified Gold after two weeks of release in the market!
“Fantasy” is a special collector’s item CD box-set that contains 2 discs featuring Regine at her very best as she belts out 12 original ballads in disc one while she revives a collection of 10 homegrown favorites in the second disc. The album’s carrier single is an original composition of singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid, a romantic love ballad entitled “You Don’t Know.” The song’s music video is directed by Nani Naguit and it is currently enjoying massive airplay on the country’s top music channels.
The first disc which contains all-original OPM material also assembles the work of some of today’s most talented songwriters such as 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 Alcacid entitled “Walang Iba.”
In Disc 2, Regine belts out such classics as 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” also has two sets of packaging that every collector should have – one colored and one in black and white featuring Regine in rare and never-before-seen photos as taken by the lens of top photographer Mark Nicdao. Each box-set contains 10 sets of post-cards that are in color and in black and white.
