Charice’s team is stepping up the game for generating buzz on Charice’s upcoming album. After more than just a month from releasing “Before It Explodes” and “One Day”, two new singles will be released on May 31, 2011 through Amazon.com, and most likely, iTunes.com too. The two new songs are“Lost the Best Thing” and “Louder”.
“Louder” is an up-tempo piece that sounds very pop/dance. This is the same song that the Japanese show, “Mezmashi TV”, chose as their spring theme track. “Louder” can definitely match “Pyramid’s” no. 1 position on the Billboard dance chart, as it’s definitely a club-ready track. Charicemania.com previously published an article about Charice’s collaboration with Dreamlab, the production/songwriting team of Leah Haywood and Daniel James, and the song they were working is no other than, “Louder”.
“Lost the Best Thing”is a midtempo song in the vein of “Pyramid” and “Reset”, which sounds very radio friendly and definitely pop. Compared to “Louder”, this shows off more Charice’s voice but not to the extent of “Note to God” or her other power ballads. These two songs show that Charice is definitely trying to capture a younger audience while still keeping her older fanbase happy.
Attracting a lot of comments across the web is the cover art of these two singles, which shows Charice looking very much like a teenager, but now with a tinge more hotness than her past covers where she’s wearing edgy leather jackets and fedoras. For this cover art, Charice dons a black gauzy asymmetrical top, which shows off a little bit of skin at the shoulders plus trendy layered necklaces. Another attention-grabbing detail of her look here is Charice’s hair – eyebrow-grazing bangs with the rest of her hair loosely pulled back.
