Known for his good looks and excellent talent in acting, Alden Richards is ready to venture on a singing career with the release of his self-titled debut album.
The album contains seven tracks including his covers of "Naaalala Ka" by Rey Valera, "'Di Na Mababawi" by Spongecola and Itchyworms' "Akin Ka Na Lang" and his carrier single, Shamrock's "Haplos."
The self-titled album was launched a few weeks ago at the Trinoma Activity Center and Alden was overwhelmed by the reception of his fans.
"Hindi ko po inexpect na ganoon yung magiging reception kasi hindi ko po ineexpect na matatanggap ako ng tao as a singer
," said Alden during last Tuesday's press conference
The carrier single "Haplos" is doing extremely well on the MYX charts. It is currently at the No. 17 spot on the MYX Hit Chart and at the No. 5 spot on the Pinoy MYX Countdown.
When asked about the music video which features Louise delos Reyes, Alden shared, "Pinapaalala ko lang sa kanya lahat ng nangyari sa amin before para maalala niya na meron kaming something special."
According to Alden, his transition from acting to singing was easy for him. "Yung singing is parang acting while singing. While reading the lyrics, you can understand the feeling of the line, kung ano yung emotion na dapat i-deliver dun sa verses ng song," he said.
Alden Richards' self-titled debut album under Universal Records is now available at all leading record bars nationwide.
