Christian Bautista sings duets with Lani Misalucha and Sarah Geronimo for his first Universal Records album titled Romance Revisited: The Love Story of Jose Mari Chan.

First week of August nang formal na i-announce ng Universal Records na isa na sa pinakabagong contract artist nila si Christian Bautista. At ngayong mid-September, posible nang mapakinggan ang kauna-unahang album ni Christian under Universal at ito ay ang revival ng halos lahat ng mga hit songs ni Jose Mari Chan.


The title of the album is Romance Revisited: The Love Story of Jose Mari Chan.


Ang first single ni Christian ay ang "Tell Me Your Name" at kunsaan, nai-tape na rin nila ang music video ng kanta with Paula Taylor as his leading lady.

Other songs included in the album are "Please Be Careful with My Heart," which was originally sung by Regine Velasquez and Jose Mari Chan, as well as Christian's first recorded duet with Sarah Geronimo.


May duet din si Christian with Regine via the song, "My Girl, My Woman, My Friend" na originally ay duet naman ni Jose Mari with Janet Basco.


"Here and Now" naman ang isa pa sa mga duet ni Christian with Lani Misalucha.


Hindi nawawala ang pressure kay Christian to be compared with the top balladeer who has earned different kind of awards any singer could dream of. Pero more than that, ang aim daw ni Christian for reviving Jose Mari's music is to introduce these songs to the new generation.
