080916-cjkristel_main.jpgAfter conquering the YouTube scene, singing sensations CJ Navato and Kristel Fulgar are set to hit the airwaves with their upcoming debut album.

The tandem known as CjTel revealed in a recent interview with Push.com.ph that they are looking to release their album this august.

According to CJ, thy have already finished recording all the songs for their album which would have originals and revivals.

Dalawang duets. Tig dalawang solos. Six songs lahat,” shared Kristel.

She added, “Pero uunahin muna namin ang digital then magkakaroon rin ng physical.”

CJ shared that director and producer Joven Tan was responsible for the selection of the music on their upcoming album, which would be carried by Star Music.

What do they about having their own album?

Masaya, sobrang saya. Ito na siya. Parang unti-unti na umaakyat kami sa hagdanan. Ngayon medyo mataas na ang naakyat namin,” said Kristel.

CJ, for his part, waxed nostalgic about their recent success.

“Tsaka katulad rin nung sabi namin dati, kung kaming dalawa. Okay lang, pero kapag hindi, hindi. Pero kaming dalawa eh so okay,” he said.

The two couldn’t wrap their heads over the idea that people believe in their talents and that they were given the chance to create an album 

Meanwhile, on top of this feat, Kristel recently took home YouTube’s Silver Play Button award after gaining 100,000 subscribers on the video channel

“Actually hindi ko in-expect talaga kasi hindi talaga ako gumagawa ng covers before tapos first time ko ‘yun gumawa ng YouTube channel,” she said.

According to Kristel, she has breached the 100,000 subscribers mark as early as three months since she has put up her own channel. Kristel has over 219,000 YouTube subscribers as of this writing.

Does CJ feel pressured to top Kristel’s success?

Sige magco-cover ako ng mag-co-cove,” he joked.

On a serious note, CJ said he’s very happy that Kristel got the recognition.

“Actually, isang cover palang ang nagagawa namin dun,yung ‘Secret Love Song’ sinasabi sakin ni Tita ‘Uy si Kristel makakakuha ng ganito, malapit na malapit na. Ikaw rin mag-cover ka na,’” he said about what pushed him to put up his own YouTube channel.

Just a few days ago, CJ and Kristel released their cover of the Korean song “All For You.”
