In 1998, PolyGram Records Philippines released Very Special, a compilation containing songs from four albums Regine Velasquez, one of the Philippines' most popular singers, recorded for the label (formerly PolyCosmic Records) between 1993 and 1997. The making of Very Special was most likely prompted by Velasquez's signing with another label earlier in 1998, the U.S.-based MJF Company. The four albums from which selections were taken for Very Special are 1993's Reason Enough, 1994's Listen Without Prejudice, 1995's My Love Emotion, and 1997's Retro. No songs are included from Velasquez's 1996 Christmas album, Love Was Born on Christmas Day. Though Velasquez's albums contain adventurous material, particularly 1995's My Love Emotion and 1997's Retro, Very Special is dominated by middle of the road, easy listening love songs, a style of music quite popular in the Philippines.

In addition, several songs on Very Special are remakes of international songs, including the standard "What Kind of Fool Am I," "Zoom," composed by former Commodores Lionel Richie and Ronald LaPread, "You Were There," a '90s hit for Australian band Southern Sons, and "Bluer Than Blue." Filipinos are quite fond of international hits, often preferring them over their own domestically produced songs. Though not all remakes of international hits, most songs on Very Special were composed by international composers (which include Asian composers outside of the Philippines) and not Filipinos, a pattern also seen on her four regular album releases for PolyCosmic Records. The preponderance of middle of the road, easy listening love songs on Very Special makes the album somewhat boring.
