Jolina Magdangal’s album earns gold status two weeks after release
031016-JolinaMagdangal_PUSH.jpgJolina Magdangal launched her latest album entitled Back To Love under Star Music just two weeks ago but it has already reached gold status after selling more than 7,500 units. 

“Dati para makarinig ka talaga… Ako, ito naranasan ko ‘to, ‘yung para makarinig ako ng kanta ng isang artist, kailangan ko bumili ng album niya, kailangan kong bumili ng tape niya, ng CD niya pero ngayon madodownload mo na or kung gusto mong pakinggan lang, hindi naman talaga mapunta sa’yo ‘yung kopya, papakinggan mo lang sa Spotify, di ba? So, ang bilis na ngayon makuha ‘yung kanta kaya siguro para maka-gold ka, parang achievement na rin talaga dahil iilang na lang ‘yung bibili ng physical album. Iilan na lang, kung hindi lang talaga fanatic o nagcocollect ng album talaga,” she said.

Aside from the originals Jolina recorded in this album, it also features two versions of the ‘90s hit, “Kapag Ako Ay Nagmahal.” She collaborated one of them with Filipino rapper Gloc 9. 

Jolina said that she considers this song the story of her life because, “Ganon po talaga ako magmahal. Hanggang masagad mo ko. Kahit sobrang sobrang nasasaktan ako, hangga’t hindi ako nasasagad, okay lang pero ‘pag nasagad ako, ba-bye.”

Likewise, Back To Love also contains a remake of “Chuva Choo Choo” where she collaborated with Vice Ganda.

Talking about the collaborations she did in this album, Jolina said she put her trust in the management. “Sa akin dati, parang hindi ko naisip pero dahil binigay nila (Star Music) ‘yung idea, parang thankful din ako na like si Vice ‘yung binigay nila...” 

She also said that she specifically requested to have a collaboration with her friend Kyla. The two sang “Throwback Lang” in the album. Jolina said, “Si Kyla, nirequest ko kasi kaibigan ko talaga siya tapos ang tagal ko na siyang hindi nakasama.”
