David Archuleta, who's currently in the country to film a mini-series, has a jam-packed schedule. Prior to the interview, the affable singer had a late night working on a "fun Philippine project" for his Filipino fans -- an all OPM album!

"This is a project that came about quite suddenly. It wasn't really planned out, but while I was here filming, it just came about and came into work and we just figured it would be a great gift for the Filipinos fans to go alongside everything that has been going on."

"Since I'll be leaving for a couple of years, it just seems like something really fun and special to give, he added. "And the songs, I think, not just Filipinos would enjoy but fans elsewhere would really like because the songs tend to be really heartfelt, emotional, and you can really sing them, and so I think my other fans would really enjoy listening to them as well."

When asked about the difficulties of recording the Tagalog song, Archie said that it wasn't as hard as he thought it would be. To prepare, he shared, "I just made sure to listen to the original version by Ogie [Alcasid] a lot. Over and over and over and over, just to make sure that I'm understanding what was being said."

Incidentally, Archie also got to meet Ogie, with his wife Regine Velasquez, when the two visited him at the recording studio.

"It was great! I loved getting to meet both of them. They were so nice. It was just fun getting to hang out with them. They even sang together a little bit which was really fun. Just very good people," he quipped. "I know that they're both very respected names here in the Philippines, so just being able to meet them and see how simple they were..."

Apart from Ogie and Regine, he also got to work with record producers Jay Durias and Jimmy Antiporda on his OPM album! When asked for his favorite track on the album, Archie simply replied, "I like keeping surprises." Though he did drop some hints.
