Earlier this week, a photo of a mysterious girl in a jacket circulated the Twitterverse. The photo was tweeted by Universal Records Philippines’ Twitter account. As seen in the photo, the girl’s back is facing the camera, making suspense for the big reveal which is slated soon.
But eagle-eyed Twitter users noticed something that might have given them the idea on the identity of the mysterious girl.
Netizens noticed that Maine Mendoza, the “Dub” in the widely admired loveteam known as AlDub, has hit the like button on the tweet. Now, this could have simply been a local celebrity just liking a tweet from a major player in the entertainment business, but Maine’s avid fans did their detective work and discovered that the Kapuso star’s supportive mother liked the same tweet. This sparked rumors about Maine recording a single or better yet, an album, under the recording company.

The said tweet garnered a whopping 167,000 tweets posted as of yesterday putting the hashtag MaineForUniversalRecords as the top trending topic in Twitter Philippines yesterday.
Other netizens claimed that the mysterious girl from the photo is Claudia Barretto because her photo is the current header on the recording company’s official Facebook page. Despite this possibility, Maine’s fans still rejoicing. For instance, Twitter user @wennzkii said, “Sana si maine to! 3 taon hinintay ko @mainedcm. Hahaha. Please sana this is you. Agad agad download ko sa itunes at bili ng cd mo. Basta ikaw lang to. Lol #MaineForUniversal records.”
In hopes that the rumors are true, another user by the Twitter account @MsM1995 tweeted, “Kahit Alphabet song pa ang carrier single mo @mainedcm, I will buy it…” showing her undying support her idol. Meanwhile, Twitter account @victoria3kings shares, “YES!!! Di nagkamali ang @universalrecph !!! Pramis GOLD on the 1st day of release!!! #MaineForUniversalRecords” excited for the new chapter in Maine’s career as one of the up and coming entertainment celebrity in the country.
