We’ve been checking for the availability of the song on iTunes since Charice tweeted a couple of days ago: My 2 new singles just came out! Pls download them! #Louder #Lostthebestthing. Finally, Louder/Lost the Best Thing can be downloaded!! But we strongly admonish chasters, please do not upload the full version on YouTube, thank you.

The official lyrics video is now posted at Charice’s YouTube channel. Enjoy…

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, and most likely, 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. 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. Widgets

Other information on the download page includes the two tracks’ lengths –“Louder” at 3:01 and “Lost the Best Thing” at 3:36. As of now,  no price for the two songs are yet revealed, most likely they will still be about 99 cents each. Come May 31, make sure you have your wallets ready Chasters, and download these two new songs the minute you wake up. Don’t forget to spread the word to your family and friends, there’s two weeks left ’til “Louder” and “Lost the Best Thing” come out, let’s make the best use of that time.

      Now, it can only mean that Oprah’s heart beats LOUDER for Charice. ONE DAY, we will just wake up seeing Charice on top as FAR AS THE SKY, and Oprah surely has a great role in realizing that. Charice’s songs are like unique, precious gems that without them, it is as if we LOST THE BEST THING in our music life. So go now and grab a copy and don’t just content yourselves WAITING OUTSIDE THE LINES. Hurry, BEFORE IT EXPLODES in the charts!!!

    I really like Louder and wish WB would promote it more, but perhaps after Cha’s new CD is released. However, I have to say that I’m not sure the song fits the OWN advertisement…love the tune, but the lyrics didn’t seem to fit the video…still anything to get Cha’s voice and music heard is ok with me.

    Why is it that Reprise don’t release music videos for Charice’s new songs??? Aren’t they confident with her? Aren’t they confident with the BEAUTIFUL AND COMPETITIVE songs that have just been released???
