Multi-platinum balladeer Christian Bautista is once again on top of the charts as his album Romance Revisited: the Love Songs of Jose Mari Chan, his first under his new label Universal Records since August, sold like hotcakes in just a month following its release. It was in early 2007 when Christian was last seen on top of the charts with his 3rd CD entitled Just a Love Song Christian Bautista Live!
Christian’s 7th album is currently the best selling among all locally released albums in Odyssey dethroning the collaboration album of music icons Gary V and Martin Nievera and preventing Nina’s Rendition of the Soul from reaching the top spot.

Romance Revisited: the Love Songs of Jose Mari Chan is Christian’s own versions of Jose Mari Chan’s classic hits which also features his collaboration with the country’s top female singers and with the Double Platinum Record Recipient Jose Marie Chan himself. It includes 19 tracks namely: Tell Me Your Name, I Remember The Girl, Afraid For Love To Fade, I Have Fallen In Love (With The Same Woman Three Times), Please Be Careful With My Heart with Sarah Geronimo, My Girl My Woman My Friend with Regine Velasquez, Beautiful Girl, Can’t We Start Over Again, Be Gentle, Stay My Love, Afterglow, A Love To Last A Lifetime, Here And Now with Lani Misalucha, Constant Change, Deep In My Heart Refrain, Can We Just Stop And Talk A While, So I’ll Go, A Heart’s Journey with Jose Mari Chan.
Last November 8 in ASAP ’09, Christian and the people behind the album’s early success received a Platinum Record Award after it has sold over 20,000 units in a month time. Such is a rare achievement nowadays as our music industry battles against piracy. It is indeed another feather in Christian’s cap already crammed with many.
