The album's first hit, Kailan (When), was number one on national airwaves for eight straight weeks and the album hit gold, platinum, double- and triple-platinum status within months of its release.
In 1990, the group went on the "Better World tour", performing at the United Nations World Summit for Children and representing the Philippines at the 5th Asean Song Festival in Surabaya, Indonesia.
