Her originals 'Nothing Left' and 'Tayong Dalawa, both reached #1 on the iTunes Philippines All-Genre Chart only 30 minutes after their release. Along with this, her sweet rendition of the Parokya Ni Edgar classic 'Your Song (My One and Only) has been played over 3 million times on Spotify.

Upon its release, the album has already celebrated commercial success in both digital and cd formats. Much like its singles, the album debuted at #1 on the iTunes Philippines All-Genre Chart and staying at the same spot for a whole week - a feat rarely seen for OPM albums. The album also received an impressive amount of pre-orders and sales during the jam-packed Grand Album Launch held July 28 at the Eastwood Mall Open Park, which is a testament to the star's staying power.
Talking about the album, Julie says "I'm happy and grateful to have worked on this album asI get to explore a new world [of music]. I've always wanted to contribute my music to this generation, so l hope people enjoy this new sound and genre I am going for."
The album is expected to reach a wider and younger audience, as it features a contemporary take on the pop genre, with flavors of R&B infused with the powerful voice and sound the singer-songwriter is already known for.
