“Be Careful With My Heart” lead actor Richard Yap, who is well known by TV viewers as ‘Ser Chief,’ is thrilled over the launch of his first-ever recording album under Star Records.
“It is a dream-come-true because I’ve always wanted to sing since I was a kid,” said the other half of the ‘Ser Chief-Maya’ (Jodi Sta. Maria) love team. “I am thankful to our teleserye because through our official soundtrack, people discovered that I can sing.”
The actor shared that his self-titled debut album is just like their TV series–a feel-good, easy listening collection of tracks composed of nine revivals that were all chosen by ‘Ser Chief’ himself. The carrier single of the album is “Don’t Know What To Do, Don’t Know What To Say.”
“It covers all genres, from pop to ballad to alternative, appealing not only to music fans in my age group but also to the teens and in-betweens,” said Richard, who stressed that his album is entirely different from “Be Careful With My Heart” album. “This is very special for me because I put a lot of hard work in it so that we could come up with something that’s really worth paying for. I’m hoping that all of my supporters will love it too.”
Richard, who grew up listening to the music of Queen, Barry Manilow, Kenny Rogers, Hall and Oates, Phil Collins, and Mike Francis, feels no pressure getting compared with other talented singers in the country.
“I don’t think there’s a need to compare because we have different musical choices and different target audiences,” he explained.
Featured in Richard’s solo debut album under Star Records are revivals of “Promise Ain’t Enough,” “Think I’m In Love Again,” “Can Find No Reason,” “You Take My Breath Away,” “Chasing Cars,” “High,” “Afterglow,” and the Chinese version of “Oh Babe.” The album also carries the bonus tracks “Please Be Careful With My Heart” and “Salamat.”
Richard’s first album is now available at all record bars nationwide for only P250. Digital tracks can also be downloaded via Amazon.com, Mymusicstore.com.ph and iTunes.

Richard Yap haharanahin ang music fans sa kanyang unang solo album…
‘SER CHIEF’ NAG-SOLO NA
Naglevel-up na bilang singer ang ‘Ser Chief ng Bayan’ na si Richard Yap!
Mula sa pagiging bahagi ng best-selling official album ng kanilang hit kilig-seryeng “Be Careful With My Heart,” ngayon ay may solo debut album na si Richard sa ilalim ng produksyon ng Star Records.
“Dream come true para sa akin itong launch ng solo album ko. Mula kasi pagkabata, hilig ko na talagang kumanta,” kwento ni Richard. “At thankful ako sa aming teleserye dahil sa pamamagitan ng aming official soundtrack, na-discover ng tao na marunong din akong kumanta.”
Ayon kay Richard, maihahalintulad niya ang kanyang unang album sa “Be Careful” dahil puno ito ng feel-good at easy listening tracks.
“Pasok dito ang lahat ng genres. May pop, ballad at alternative. Hindi lamang sila para sa music fans na ka-age group ko kundi maging sa teens at in-betweens,” ani Richard. “Nakapaka-espesyal sa akin nitong album kasi pinagpaguran namin ito para masigurong sulit ito para sa mga tao. Sana, tulad ko, ay magustuhan siya ng lahat ng aming supporters.”
Para kay Richard na lumaki sa musika ng Queen, Barry Manilow, Kenny Rogers, Hall and Oates, Phil Collins, at Mike Francis, wala siyang nararamdamang pressure sa posibilidad na makumpara siya sa iba pang mahuhusay na singers sa bansa. “Sa palagay ko hindi naman kailangang magkumpara dahil magkakaiba naman ang musical choices at target audiences ng singers,” paliwanag niya.
Tampok sa solo debut album ni Richard ang revivals ng “Don’t Know What To Do, Don’t Know What To Say,” “Promise Ain’t Enough,” “Think I’m In Love Again,” “Can Find No Reason,” “You Take My Breath Away,” “Chasing Cars,” “High,” “Afterglow,” at ang Chinese version ng “Oh Babe.” Bahagi rin ng album ang bonus tracks na “Please Be Careful With My Heart” at “Salamat.”
Sa ilalim ng produksyon ng Star Records, ang first album ni Richard ay mabibili na sa record bars nationwide sa halagang P250 lamang. Maaari na ring ma-download sa Internet ang tracks ng album ni Ser Chief. Mag- log on lang sa iTunes, Amazon.com at MyMusicStore.com.ph.
