R2K is the tenth studio album of Regine Velasquez released in 1999. The album consists of various covers and contains her most famous cover to date, "On The Wings of Love" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing".
The album reached more than 300,000 units in 2000. It was announced on 2001 that the album reached 10x Platinum.This was also her best selling album to date going 12x platinum.
A Diamond Record Award is given to an artist whose album has surpassed the 10x Platinum mark.
Eraserheads and Jose Mari Chan were the only Filipinos to have received a Diamond Record, and Nina achieved this status recently on her album ‘Nina Live!’ album sold for 200,000 copies.
Viva Records standard on giving platinum awards on album is 30K and was not even adjusted to 20K....but still, R2K reached its standards more than that and yet, VIVA Records didn't recognize it.
To all of us fans, Regine Velasquez deserves to be the first female performer to receive the 'Diamond Record' award!
