    But I dont understand, why Charice Team dont use a BRADN NEW song for the single.

    People are gonna compare the three singers versions, and I HATE the comparison.

    Honestly, “A” and “B” both sing very good, and It’ll be severe for our “C”.

      @J.L. Think about it too, people will be curious why out of those 3 versions Charice’s version is the only one that will be released as a single. It must be a great version if not then why BM did not release his own version remember that was his song and he got the right to choose which version will be released as a single. Do the Math A(Alexandra) + B(Bruno) = C(Charice).

      It’s funny that people are judging the song based on A&B full versions against Charice’s 30 sec. version and some already saying it’s not going to hit the billboard chart.

      Hahaha! Love the alphabet comparison… A for Alexandra, B for Bruno, and C for Charice. LOL!

      I’m not very good at this but i’ll try… Charice just twitted “Trusting a person is like picking the greatest song on Earth.” – Let’s negate this statement, if you don’t trust Charice and her team, then this song is a flop to begin with (even with just 30sec sample, we all seem to have drawn to conclusion A is better than B and B is better than C and C is better than A and so on) Can we all hold our reviews and criticism until it is released in its entirety. People will always compare her to anything and will always try to find faults whether its a brand new song or demoed song, but what we Chasters can do is support her no matter what. As we all know its not so much just about the song, it is also about who sings it… if you want to support Charice, let’s all download it on the 19th and make her trend!!

        @ luvCha

        The Essence of Charice…The Singer…Not The Song

        I have heard all three versions and I must say honestly that A or B did not have the same essence as C. BM knew he had a good
        material but could possibly not feel the life in his own delivery of the song…same with A. This is a matter of THE SINGER NOT THE SONG question. Charice definitely have given life to this song.

        There is an element in Charice that separates her from other artists no matter who and how big they are. Remember how she stood out amongst an all star line-up at the Rockefeller Plaza Christmas event in NYC. I don’t know what it is. People just have to wait for Charice to explode.

    Previously I was thought to myself that Cha may release the new single near the re-appearance on Glee, and Im right!

    It’s gotta be GREAT.

    Glee has hugh power and It would be the smartest decision to release single at this time, Glee will help to promote it :P

        Oh thanks for the quick response! Is it asking too much for confirmation if Charice’s team did tell admin about this? Also I would just like to ask where the info of the song being included in the second album come from? Sorry if i’m being a bother. I just think that these information is of utmost importance and need to be cleared. Thanks in advance.:)

    Come to CM Chat April 19th for 2 buying parties – one for “Before it Explodes” just before Glee starts (iTunes & Amazon) and one for “All By Myself” as soon as Glee is over (iTunes) for maximum exposure as the Glee audience goes to iTunes to buy “All By Myself”
    Chasters want “Before It Explodes” to be showing a high raking when the Gleeks show-up to buy All By Myself!

    i think we chasters must be open minded enough for every criticisms, but honestly speaking charice wouldn’t be happy to know that there are chasters who are trying to feel her bad or something because of the F*** argumentations about the album cover..charice is doing everything to prove the she is Who she is…this album cover is very soothing to her singles since if we try to analyze the song is about Heartbreak so it would be not good to see charice is smiling or looking wild or what***…and chasters Eve said this is fresh for american people and for sure they will embrace charice because of this…let’s be glad for whatever blessings our dear princess has already have…

  11. Charice’s version is much better.. they were right its like a “Grenade” song when you heard it first its kinda boring but in 2nd,3rd you’ve heard it..”LSS” will strike you. I hope a good music video for the song..

    i LOVE the photos from Charice’s photo shoot in Japan. This particular photo is for the single ‘Before It Explodes’, we don’t know yet if it will be for the album cover or not, but that’d be okay with me. Most people haven’t seen these photos that were shot for the Japan CD release. These are fresh and new pics for us here in America, and they were done very well, very eye-catching. It is NOT a duplicate photo of her American CD debut which someone else had mentioned. In fact, if you Google Charice images, the photo doesn’t even appear there (they inexplicably have 2-3 year old photos in Google’s images file).

    People are gonna download the song because they like “the song”, not because they like or dislike the photo that goes with it. I just hope that it gets radio airplay and a cool music video to go along with it. Radio and a music video are more important to promote the song than the photo. Mostly, when people hear the song is when they’ll buy the digital download and they don’t even know what the artist looks like.

    I consider myself as big of a fan as anyone, and I adore Charice. She is a huge talent and a beautiful young lady, however I have to admit that sometimes her make-up is a bit over done. It would be nice if she was made-up without changing her her naturally pretty appearance. Just my opinion…

    In life there’s always a reason for everything that happens. Charice’s third place at LBS was sad for sure, but God had better plans for Cha. Then as we all know, came Falsevoice, StarKing, Ellen Degeneres, Oprah, David Foster and Cha’s appearances worldwide. And now after the short lull ironically these two titles “Here Comes the BOOM” “Before It EXPLODES” with Glee and her soph album, her career is destined to rise dramatically in 2011. We are all so happy and proud of you Cha! Keep on going and take care. Labyo!!!

    Charice!!! A May release, that is a pleasant surprise for sure, made my day. After the lull period from tour Japan, I got my seatbelts on, destination “To The Top”. Gotta stay alert, many more surprises coming up I’m sure. Charice’s superstardom is undeniable.

      Hmmm. What do you expect? Color her hair blond? Put blue colored contact lenses? Perhap evoke Britney Spears or Lady Gaga risque “hoochie mama” pose?

      If you are going to criticize, at least offer solution. I think the cover is well done.

        I think it was just a quick release. They weren’t planning on taking any serious shots of Charice for this single cover. Plus, the ones she took in Japan are one the best I’ve seen (and the ones she took when she did the photoshoot for NTG). btw…..MAY 2011? I hope she has at least one more single to put out before she releases her album.

      she is asian for christ sake and thats the look that fits her and she looks amazing by the way! and besides people dont buy albums because of the cover they buy them because of the artist and the belief that the artist is a Great One. AND SO YOU KNOW CHARICE IS THE ONE! ur a typical crab!

        Dude wtf is a crab? I’m not a hater, I’m just stating my opinion. If you read closely, I wrote “personally” which means my opinion only. Don’t be calling people names if you don’t know who they are. Why would I come to a Charice fan site if I didn’t like her? I’m a huge american fan of hers, I think she’s the most talented singer ever. I just didn’t like the cover picture that’s all, nothing against het or anyone.

          i think this is just a misunderstanding among friends…of course we want the best of everything for CHARICE, however, from the point of view of WARNER/REPRISE they have a marketable product( CHARICE’s amazing voice + a catchy song)…what they are doing is that they are packaging this product to suit their major markets, US and JAPAN resp. US fans already know she is from Asia so that justifies her Asian look. Why does she look more Japanese than Chinese eventhough she’s Filipino? Well because Japan’s market is the biggest in Asia right now.I bet when the Chinese music market surpasses Japan’s CHARICE would be packaged to look more Chinese than Japanese.

          A CRAB or crab syndrome is a descriptive word for haters. Australians call haters Tall Poppy Syndrome, for people that love to throw crap at talented people that attain success.

Grow Up! Be open minded to critisisms! having said this, would you also label me as crab? Hmmmmmm..

      I think the picture is great. This looks much similar to the Japan album, which I believe many preferred over the American cover. They had already done the “Americanized” look, and to tell you the truth, emphasizing who she is, and where she came from comes across as more honest, more cool and hip. There are way too many “American” looking artists. It iis too generic. This picture shows her uniqueness, and actually will stick more to the minds of people, I believe. It is time for Charice to shine! The real Charice. She is CHARICE. When you see this picture, you will remenber who she is.

      I agree with Apex. I would love a fresh, young, and sunny Charice on the cover. Though she’s one lady who takes her work and profession very seriously, she’s still a teenager, right? (It’s okay for anyone to thumb me down. :) Wouldn’t we want the SUNSHINE in our life?

        It’d be weird if she’s all smiles, considering Before it Explodes is a break-up song. Dont forget that that cover is only for the single, not for the whole album.

      Well, people who factor race in their decision-making such as buying an album will usually have a whole host of other biases. So if they’re not deterred by Asian-ness, they’ll find other things to dislike. Creepily, you have just become a mouthpiece for racist expectations in this country.

      Don’t worry too much about the lazy eyes. It’s probably caused by the electric fan blowing on her face.
