Regine Velasquez- Alcasid’s Hulog Ka Ng Langit hits Platinum in record time
Regine Velasquez proved that she is still the country’s topselling female artist as her latest album Hulog Ka Ng Langit hits platinum mark in record time of two weeks. Hulog Ka Ng Langit topped various stores’ sales chart for the past two weeks.
Regine was awarded the Platinum Record Award by Universal Records General Manager Kathleen Dy- Go last Sunday at GMA’s Sunday All Stars. The album has sold more than 15,000 units.
The album, composed of songs that give inspiration to wives and mothers, has the beautifully-penned Hulog Ka Ng Langit as debut single and title track of the album. The song truly embodies what the album is all about – unconditional love between husbands and wives, and mothers to children.
Regine recounts that when work has started for the album, the whole team was leaning towards making a baby album. The songbird, however, felt that love songs that have more general messages to be included in the album.
“The challenge really was to have a special, not-so-typical baby album,” shares Regine. “An album that can be appreciated by everyone – kids, parents, lovers, and family.”
With Regine’s gift of amazing vocals, she has given new life to songs like Hele Ni Inay, Someone’s Waiting For You, Happiness, You, God Gave Me You and Just The Way You Are, a duet with husband Ogie Alcasid. The songs included in the album also feature some of the best arrangers, musicians in the country.
Hulog Ka Ng Langit promises to give the public an inspiration to continuously hope for their own happiness with people they truly love and care for.
“I don’t usually say this, pero ang ganda-ganda ng album,” closes Regine. “It is very memorable because, when I was doing the album, I was also going through some stuff. This album is special and memorable because I dedicate this to my son, husband, family, and loved ones.”
