Chasters all over the world would surely fast-forward time if they could. With only 5 days left before Charice’s newest song Before It Explodesis released, everyone’s excitement is heightened with each passing day. Just a couple of days after Bruno Mars revealed in an interview that he worked with Charice on a new song, a download page was put up at Amazon.com. Details revealed there included a release date of April 18, 2011, a song length of 4 minutes and the song artwork. The song artwork shows an older-looking Charice compared to her debut album cover. Wearing a black leather jacket and a black fedora really toughens up Charice’s look, perfect for a song with the word “explode” in its title. Also featured on the Amazon.com page is a 30 second preview of “Before It Explodes“. Compared to the demos of Bruno Mars and Alexandra Burke, Charice’s version sounds much more current. It certainly matches her effort to reach out to a younger audience, but still showcases her amazing vocal range and power. We would encourage you to pre-order the song at Amazon.com but sadly, there’s no option for that. We’ll just have to wait for April 18 to make “Before It Explodes” top the download charts. No official word is out yet if Charice’s label will release the song on iTunes or other online stores. Most probably they will do that but at a later date. Now that “Before It Explodes” will be released, we now know one song appearing in Charice’s sophomore album. Despite previous collaborations that hinted at up-tempo songs dominating the album, it’s good to know that there are still powerful mid-tempo numbers that Charice is famous for. With this kind of variety, Charice’s second album will definitely appeal to a wide range of people. Charice is starting to make more and more noise about her second album. The same day release of “Before It Explodes” and her Glee comeback is a brilliant strategy. Come April 19, the web will certainly be flooded with discussions about Charice. And remember that “Before It Explodes“ is just an appetizer for her new album. Here’s a piece of news that will excite you even more: expect Charice’s sophomore album to be released this May 2011.
