Just hours after it debuted in the online music store iTunes today, August 10, Julie Anne San Jose‘s self-titled recording album hit the no. 1 spot in the said online multimedia portal, according to an update from GMA Records, the album’s producer.
The downloadable version was made available online a day earlier than the album’s grand launch tomorrow on Party Pilipinas. The compact disc versions, however, will be available in music stores nationwide beginning next weekend.
The 10-track album contains both originals and revivals including the carrier single “I’ll be there.” The music video of the carrier single, which also featured Julie Anne’s onscreen partner Elmo Magalona, was launched last month in Party Pilipinas. It was directed by Party Pilipinas co-director Mark Reyes. It has been viewed on the video sharing site YouTube almost one million times since its upload a day after its TV debut.
“Grabe, sobrang nagulat talaga ako na malaman na no. 1 na yung album sa iTunes. I feel so blessed and I am really thankful to all the fans and supporters who downloaded my album. I hope mapasaya ko kayo sa album ko. Maraming salamat po talaga,” said Julie Anne in an interview before she engaged in a live chat with fans this afternoon via www.gmanetwork.com.
The launching of Julie Anne’s album coincides with the premiere of her movie with Elmo Magalona, “Just One Summer,” which will hit theaters nationwide beginning Wednesday, August 15. The movie is directed by Mac Alejandre and produced by GMA Films.
