Background[edit]

Regine is Velasquez's first full studio album released after winning champion at RPN 9's Ang Bagong Kampeon singing competition. Although she recorded a song before the album titled "Love Me Again" released through OctoArts, but with her name "Chona Velasquez". However, in 1986 after performing in Martin Nievera's late night TV program "Penthouse Live" aired over GMA-7, Nievera suggested that she use her own name which is "Regine" than her nickname.[4][5] It was then that under new management with Ronnie Henares[6][7] got her a recording contract to Viva Records owned by Mr. Vic del Rosario. All of the songs in the album were produced by Ronnie Henares.[8] The song "Isang Lahi" was later used in the film Gabi Ka Na Kumander.
