All Good is the seventh studio album by Filipino singer Nina, released in the Philippines on January 23, 2013 by Viva Records. The album release was accompanied by the singer's comeback major concert at the Music Museum entitled Nina Reborn.
On May 8, 2012, Girado signed a five-year recording deal with Viva Records, following the expiration of her contract with Universal. In an interview, she stated that during her Love2Love2Love concert in 2010—which was produced by Viva Entertainment, the label's head Vicente Del Rosario, Jr. expressed interest in managing her career. However, she has already signed under Universal at that time. Shortly after her separation with the label, she reunited with Viva with the help of Geleen Eugenio. She expressed working on a new album, saying that it will have "the same Nina sound [...] New songs maybe, can be cover, can be original, but we’re eyeing on original songs." She will be having her acting debut with the label, stating "I'll be going to Singapore to do acting workshop. Because I myself, honestly, don't know much about acting. So if ever I will star in a movie, I'm not half-baked, I'll be prepared. And also for myself, I want to be prepared, especially if I'm heading straight into a new direction." In October 2012, she appeared in a cameo role for the film A Secret Affair, where she also performed the movie theme song "Don't Say Goodbye." On January 25, 2013, she staged her comeback concert at the Music Museum entitled Nina Reborn, accompanied by the release of her first album under Viva.
All Good received favorable response from OPM critics, being described as Nina's "strongest album in years." Remy Umerez of Journal emphasized the singer's commercial charisma by saying that "[Nina] set the bar high for female singers of her generation with the multi-platinum success of her solo albums in the mid-2000s" and praised the album's sound, stating "A more mature Nina is what people will hear [...] All Good is a suite of beautiful songs." She complimented the original songs, including the Tagalog ballad "Paano" which she called "heart-tugging." Yugel Losorata of The Philippine Star shared the same opinion on Nina's commercial success, commenting "[Nina] has done her first all-OPM package for her new CD, reflecting her mindset of thanking back the local music scene that has provided her blessings other lady acts can only dream of." However, he criticized the first official single "Sa Isang Tingin", calling it a "safe choice for radio airplay" due to the song's "strong melody somewhat influenced by high-recall Tagalog songs of the yesteryears." Losorata praised the title track and "Pinilit Kong Limutin Ka", stating "the latter two have more melodic appeal than the first single."
In 2013, Nina received three nominations on the 5th PMPC Star Awards for Music namely– Album of the Year for All Good (which was lost to MKNM: Mga Kwento Ng Makata by Gloc-9), Female Recording Artist of the Year (which she lost to Sarah Geronimo), and Female Pop Artist of the Year (which she lost to Jessa Zaragoza). In 2014, she was nominated on the 27th Awit Awards for Best Performance by a Female Recording Artist for "Sa Isang Tingin". Despite losing the award to Zia Quizon's "Pasakalye," she was awarded as Entertainment Gateway Group (EGG) Allhits.ph’s Most Downloaded Artist and Most Downloaded Song for 2013 with "Don't Say Goodbye."
"Don't Say Goodbye" was released on October 9, 2012 prior to the release of All Good as a promotional single for Viva's feature film A Secret Affair, which starred Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsay. The song was a Louie Ocampo-penned ballad, originally recorded by Pops Fernandez. It was co-written by Fernandez' ex-husband Martin Nievera. The song received positive feedback from both critics and listeners, causing it to gain radio airplay and later being used as a promo single for the album. Its music video was taken from a scene in the film, where Nina is seen performing in a bar's concert stage, with only a piano accompanying her voice. Throughout the video, scenes from the movie randomly appear. On February 23, 2013, "Sa Isang Tingin", an original love song written by MJ Magno of MMJ and XLR8, was released as the first commercial single for the album. Nina has performed the song in various concerts and television appearances. Despite being claimed as an official single, no music video was yet recorded for the song's promotion. On October 22, "When the Love Is Gone" was released as the third official single for the album, as soon as it was used as the official theme song for the 2013 romantic drama film of the same title. The song's music video only consisted of scenes from the movie and none showing Nina.Other notable songs
"Hurting Inside" was released on March 3, 2013 as a promotional single for the album. The song was written by Jimmy Antiporda and originally recorded by 90's OPM girl group Vanna Vanna. It was accompanied by an official lyric video, which was published on Viva Records' official YouTube page during the song's release.
All Good's release was accompanied by Nina's comeback major concert entitled Nina Reborn, held at Music Museum on January 25, 2013. The concert had its cable television premiere on May 4, 2013 at 9:30P.M. PST on Filipino cable channel PBO (Pinoy Box Office).
