EIA, Brunei’s rising singing talent, has made another splash in her singing career by topping the chart on iTunes Brunei with her new song “That’s The Way”, which was released last Saturday.
In an interview with the Bulletin, the former national swimmer-turned-singer said, “It’s unreal to be honest, and very overwhelming.
“I checked the iTunes Brunei chart … a day after the release and saw that it was number one.
“I’m so happy that the song is selling itself because the team I worked with in LA is truly one of the best.”
She said that she was happy to see lots of fellow Bruneians supporting local artistes as well by purchasing their songs via iTunes.
Since the song was launched on Maria’s birthday, she said that it was the “best birthday gift” ever.
Eia, whose real name is Maria Grace Koh, had a special private preview of her latest song last Monday night at The Brunei Hotel. Her performance was well received by the invited guests.
She is hoping to extend her reach to Europe and US.
Eia has also had a successful run with her debut single, “Hello World”, two years ago.
Eia’s single, “That’s The Way”, can be found on iTunes.
