Yesterday, on ASAP 19, both Kathryn Bernardo already received her Gold Record award for her album produced under Star Records.

According to Star Records' Jonathan Manalo, 'Kathryn' is a certified record breaker. It achieved gold status (7,500 units sold) on its first day of release, which is one rare feat for an OPM artist.

I have here below the list of albums which have been certified Gold by the Philippine Association of the Recording Industry, Inc. (PARI) within 2 weeks after release. So, with Kathryn's album being certified gold within the day of release, it becomes the fastest or the first to achieve such in the last 5 years, and only the 2nd album ever since PARI started giving certifications in 1990. Sharing same album achievement with Kathryn is Daniel Razon.
