Completely is the second studio album of Filipino singer Christian Bautista, released on December 22, 2005 in the Philippines by Warner Music Philippines. Its singles include "Everything You Do", "Invincible", "She Could Be", and "My Heart Has a Mind of Its Own".[1] Bautista wrote two songs for the album (a first time for the singer) —"Now That You Are Here" and "Please Don't Go". On January 30, 2006, he went to Indonesia to stage a concert, attend TV and radio guestings, and shoot music videos for "Since I Found You" and "For Everything I Am".[2] In 2006, the album was certified Platinum by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry.

The album was released on digital download through iTunes and Amazon.com on January 16, 2007.[3][4] American actor-singer Corbin Bleu covered the single "She Could Be" on his 2007 album, Another Side. To date, it has sold over 150,000 copies in Asia.

Titik Pilipino 4/5 stars[5]

Completely received positive reviews from critics. Resty Odon of Titik Pilipino gave the album four out of five stars, explaining, "This album starts off with the regular ballads [...] It then shifts to an experimentation with more upbeat tunes". He added "This album boasts of having employed international songwriters [...] Christian also proves he can write a song or two ("Now That You Are Here", "Please Don’t Go") – another plus point". He praised the last number, "Nais Ko", stressing out the new side of Bautista that he called "louder, bolder, zippy". However, he disliked the upbeat numbers, saying "I think Christian’s almost one-dimensional pitch should stick to the ballads".[6]
