This beautiful singer-songwriter hails from Penang and began her professional singing career at the tender age of 17. Fun fact: If you don’t already know, she is the daughter of Loganathan from the Malaysian band Alleycats, who took over the local charts in the ‘70s.
Her song ‘Cleverly’ took over the number 1 spot on the UK Soul Chart in December 2014!
Yuna, our Malaysian sweetheart, became a music sensation when she uploaded her music on Myspace and received a whopping number of over one million plays! Born and raised in Kedah and Selangor, this ‘hijabster’ has a total of four international albums under her belt: ‘Yuna’, ‘Nocturnal’, ‘Chapters’ and ‘Rouge’.
Her song ‘Live Your Life’, produced by Pharell Williams himself, debuted at number 23 on the Pop chart and at number 86 on the Top 100 Albums on iTunes!
3. Shila Amzah
Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Shila used to go to recording studios with her father, ND Lala, when she was four years old.
