Diana Drill's most recent release 'Working on Me' is all about self-empowerment and improvement. 'Working on Me' is more melodic than her previous, more freestyle-focused, releases, but this new style suits her very well.

Kiara Chettri - Why
17-year-old Kiara Chettri's new release 'Why' truly shows off her talent. The emotionally filled vocals are the star of the show and work wonderfully on top of the simple piano instrumental.
