Jennylyn Mercado

Ultimate survivor on TV & in real life Jennylyn Mercado returns in the music scene with her 5th album ‘Forever By Your Side’ under PolyEast Records.

It is a 6-track album with carrier single ‘Hindi Ka na Mag-iisa’ used as a theme-song for same title of her current afternoon soap with Sid Lucero. 
Other Songs in the album are:

1) Forever By Your Side
2) Parang Kailan Lang
3) Ganun Na Lang Ba
4) Mahal na Mahal
5) Halik sa Hangin
6) Hindi Ka Na Mag-iisa

My personal fave is the Pop Title Track. It sounds groovy & refreshing.
When I asked Jen about her favorite; She chose Mahal na Mahal; and she dedicates this also to her significant other, Luis Manzano.

The album came out on July 23, 2012 and debuted at #4 of Astroplus’ sales chart after its first week.  A month after the released; they shot the music video of her carrier single on August 24, 2012.

As I entered the studio; Jen was having conversation with the director of her Music Video; Treb Monteras. As I said Hi to her, with all smile she replied accordingly and I guess was very happy to see me. Haha!

Jen who is 25 now; appeared in GMA-7’s soap operas; Encantadia, Super Twins, Sine Novela; Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak and currently hosting ‘Protégé; The Battle for the Big Break’, Party Pilipinas and a newly-launched Sunday Showbiz oriented show Hot TV (Hindi Ordinaryong Tsismis) with Regine Velasquez, Roderick Paulate & Raymond Gutierrez.

The album is available in AstroVision, AstroPlus, SM Record Bars, Odyssey & Landmark. You can also download the songs from the album on and on iTunes. For more information, you may visit PolyEast Records website
