Every 3rd week of the month, DJ Mina introduces you great OPM music. It is the album [A Love Album] by Jaya, released in 1999.
Jaya is a soul singer, rapper, record producer, actress, dancer and presenter of mixed Jamaican and Visayan descent. She is the first Filipino recording artist to chart in the United States, as her debut single "If You Leave Me Now" peaked at 44 at the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The album consists of songs taken from an earlier Jaya album, released in the United States in 1989, as well as songs recorded specifically for the 1992 Japanese release. In 1992, while touring Japan as a backup singer and keyboardist for American R&B artist Stevie B., Jaya was approached by the Japanese label Toshiba/EMI to make an album for Japanese release.
