Upon its release, the track debuted at #1 on the iTunes Philippines all-genre chart, another record for Julie’s book, with her previous releases “Regrets,” “Breakthrough” album and it’s singles (“Tayong Dalawa” and “Nothing Left”) sharing the same success. The two artists were also featured as the cover of Spotify’s New Music Friday Philippines playlist.
Produced and written by OPM rock icon Rico Blanco, the track brings Julie into the shoes of the “third party” in someone else’s relationship, as it explores themes of forbidden love and longing for someone you can’t have. Aside from the unique point of view the singer-songwriter puts herself in for the first time, the music it is set to brings forth a unique mix of musical styles — featuring the Pinoy jukebox style of hugot, and putting some modern synth elements as well, resulting into a fresh yet familiar sound audiences would relate to.
Coming from a year of breakthroughs and heartaches, singer-songwriter Julie Anne San Jose returns with a brand new single that signifies a new chapter in her life.
Julie’s first album under Universal Records, “Breakthrough” broke the boundaries, with her change of sound and approach to her music. All of its singles (Nothing Left, Tayong Dalawa, Down For Me) and the album itself reached the top of the iTunes charts during their first day of release, with the song “Your Song (My One and Only)” also reaching 9 million streams and counting on Spotify.
This year, Julie is set to continue her stride with the release of her newest composition “Regrets.” The emotional song is a reflection of her experiences from the past year, may it be about her career or personal life.
Minutes after its release, the new single already reached the top spot on the iTunes Philippines All Genre and Pop Charts, continuing her streak of #1 hit singles, joining the likes of K-Pop groups BTS and Blackpink on top of the charts.
Talking about the song, Gloc says “Goodbye song ko ito sa rap na ginawan ko ng kwento na parang relationship sa isang babae (this is my goodbye song to rap, which I likened to being in a relationship).” Though this is in reference to thoughts about staying in the rap scene, there seems to be no stopping the rap icon from putting out fresh music that still resonates with long-time fans and new fans alike.
Maleta is released as a single ahead of Gloc-9’s upcoming EP which is expected later this year. The track will be included along with “Lagi,” a collaboration with fast-rising Pinoy rap artist Al James, which has now garnered over 4.2 million views on YouTube. Aside from this, Gloc also penned and appeared on the track “Pamaypay” with R&B singer and Tawag ng Tanghalan-alum JKris, and has had various collaborations with Shanti Dope, which clearly indicates his support in grooming the next big acts in OPM and the Hip-Hop scene in the country.

In November 2018, Julie Anne had an Opportunity to be part of Gary Valencianos Advocacy Album, Awit at Laro to promote Filipino games and songs through art and music. She is the only Gma Artist that is included in the album, she performed the song Pitik Bulag Composed by Jungee Marcelo.
Awit at Laro is made up of 20 native songs like Magtanim Ay Di Biro or Sitsiritsit Alibangbang and songs about our childhood games like sipa or patintero. Almost a hundred artists got together to do the songs and recordings while others contributed artworks about the subjects. The result is one wonderful book with pages of song lyrics and incredibly impressive artworks.
Proceeds from the album will go toward funding children’s causes via UNICEF, where Gary V serves as a national ambassador, the Tukod Foundation, Shining Light Foundation and towards the improvement of Museo Pambata’s exhibits and facilities.
Breakthrough is Julie’s first album under Universal Records where she explores a different genre of music unheard from her previous releases. Prior to its release, the album’s featured singles ‘Nothing Left‘, her rendition of the Parokya ni Edgar classic ‘Your Song (My One and Only),’ her original song ‘Tayong Dalawa‘ and ‘Down for Me (featuring Fern.)’ all topped various charts as well.

Asia’s Pop Sweetheart Julie Anne San Jose has released a new album under GMA Records entitled, Chasing The Light. Even before the release of the album, her carrier single and one of several she penned in the album, “Naririnig Mo Ba”, has already topped the iTunes charts after its digital release in June. The song is about faith in love and the hope of feeling in love again, which anyone can relate to.
According to the Kapuso singer-actress, her album is closely similar to her recently released EP, Forever.
“Chasing The Light is more mature in the way na nag-evolve ‘yung genre. It’s different, kasi yung nauna kong albums with GMA Records, parang medyo ballad. I think my fans and I are on the same page when it comes to the kind of music I would make. I think they will like the album just how they liked my EPs,” Julie Anne relates.
Her latest album consists of several original songs and a revival, with Julie Anne’s writing the lyrics for two songs. She also collaborated with international rapper C-Tru, who has high regard for the Kapuso star’s talent. “As a Filipino-American with deep roots in the Philippines, it is an honor to collaborate with talented local artists such as Julie Anne. It’s amazing to be able to connect the Filipino culture here in the U.S. with my kababayan back home through the universal language of music,” C-Tru claims.
Like many local singers, Christian Bautista, Julie Anne San Jose and Kyline Alcantara usually spend the busy Valentine season at work, on the stage, serenading other lovestruck couples. But given the chance, how would they like to celebrate it?
“I would love to spend some quality time with my wife (Kat Ramnani). It has to be something special, because we just spent our first year as a married couple,” Christian told the Inquirer in an interview for the pre-Valentine’s Day show, “The Sweetheart and the Balladeer (Fun Night Only),” which he will topbill with Julie Anne. The show also features Kyline.
If Christian could have it his way, he and Kat would go somewhere with no cell phone signal, like their recent honeymoon adventures in Africa. “It was beautiful. We were disconnected from social media. We didn’t get to post as much… It was all about us,” he related.
“But we have to save up again for something like that, however,” he quipped, laughing. “A dinner—a delicious meal and a great conversation—isn’t so bad.”
For her part, Kyline isn’t dating anyone at the moment. But she, too, would love to spend the day close to nature. “I want to go outdoors—I’m thinking, maybe we can go mountain hiking or forest camping. I want to see beautiful landscapes. The good thing is that the signal will be scarce, so that me and my date can get to know each other better,” she said. Well, that is if someone musters enough courage to ask her out.
“Honestly, I rarely get dates on Valentine’s Day. They say it’s because I’m a straightforward person, and apparently, they find that intimidating,” she said, adding that she would probably just buy herself some flowers this year.
“Why not? And I also love it when my parents leave flowers and chocolates in my room before I wake up.”
Julie Anne isn’t used to grand romantic gestures or going all-out. “I usually go for a simple dinner,” related the singer who, like Kyline, is single right now. “But of course it would be nice to get treated by a special someone once in a while.”
The day, however, shouldn’t be exclusive to couples, she surmised. “Honestly, I just want a free day with my family. I believe everyone can celebrate it. either with their families or loved ones. You don’t need a special occasion or day to express your love and gratefulness. Why not do it every day?”
Mounted by GMA Regional TV, “The Sweetheart and the Balladeer (Fun Night Only)” will be held on Feb. 8 at the Urdaneta City Cultural and Sports Center in Pangasinan. Tickets are available via TicketWorld. Also included in the show are comedians, Super Tekla and Donita Nose.
“Since this is a pre-Valentine’s Day show, we will be doing more love ballads. But there will also be upbeat numbers,” Julie Anne said.
Christian, who has been doing concerts regularly with Julie Anne since he transferred to the Kapuso network in 2013, said he’s hoping for more collaborations in the future. “I hope we can record a song together. Or perhaps do bigger concerts here or abroad,” he said.
Kyline, on the other hand, enjoys being mentored by his seniors, and getting in touch with her fans outside Manila. “I love doing regional concerts because it allows me to see my supporters from different parts of the country. They don’t get to see me in person often, so it’s always a treat,” she pointed out. “That makes my heart happy.” INQ
