Diamante Premieres New Song “Obvious”

Diamante has premiered a new single titled “Obvious.” You can check out a lyric video for that below:

Diamante commented:

“‘Obvious’ is about the suffering that comes with unrequited love, and knowing that no amount of success, character, charm or beauty will ever be enough to keep this person. It’s about the pain of watching someone slip away from your grasp, for somebody else, right before your very eyes.”

She also added:

“This release is especially exciting because it’s my first independent release in five years. Now that I’m no longer signed to a label, I’ve realized the endless possibilities that come with this new freedom. At first I felt overwhelmed, but now I feel empowered to be able to take the risks I have always wanted to take, make the music I’ve always wanted to make, move unconventionally, and blaze my own blue trail.”

Diamante Premieres “When I’m Not Around” Music Video

Diamante has premiered a new video for her new single “When I’m Not Around.” You can check that out below:

The track was written by Diane Warren and Diamante had the following to say about it:

“‘When I’m Not Around’ is an incredibly special song, and the moment I listened to it, Diane’s lyrics instantly resonated with me. The song perfectly describes my experience with love time and time again: constantly feeling unappreciated by someone who doesn’t know what they have until it’s gone. I knew the song would be vocally challenging to record, and because of that, I feel I was really able to pour my soul into the song through the vocal delivery.”

Warren added:

“Diamante sings this song with so much passion that she will make you believe every word with every note.”

Diamante Premieres “Lo Siento” Music Video

Diamante has premiered a new video for her track “Lo Siento.” She said the following about that:

“Check out my song ‘Lo Siento’, the Spanish version of ‘I’m Sorry’ from my debut album ‘Coming In Hot’. This song is one of the more personal, vulnerable, songs I’ve written…. and I knew singing it in Spanish would make the raw emotion of the song cut through even more. I’m glad I was able to tell this story through such a passionate and powerful language, and one that is so intertwined with my heritage.”
