PRESS STATEMENT FROM STAR RECORDS:
"Last year was indeed a shining year for ABS-CBN's recording arm, Star Records, as six out of the ten top selling albums of 2010 came from the said network's subsidiary.
"Data coming from Astrovision/Astroplus, one of the leading retail outlets in the country with 54 stores nationwide, showed that Star Records have dominated their list of top 10 selling albums last year. Jovit's Baldivino's Faithfully owned the top spot. Music industry wide, Jovit's first album is also the best selling abum of the year.
"Piolo Pascual's Decades 1, Willie Revillame's Ikaw Na Nga, I-Star Anniversary album and Juris' Now Playing landed on the third, fourth, fifth and sixth spots, respectively. The compilation album 60 Taon ng Musika at Soap Opera took the 8th post.
"Music Uplate Live, a late-night musical-interactive show, awarded the six albums last January 7, 2011.
"This is a strong proof that Star Records has offered nothing but fifteen years of quality music and recording and will continually provide superior and premiere albums through the years."
