Teen singer/instrumentalist Rochelle Diamante is quickly making quite the name for herself. The seventeen-year old Seattle, WA native now lives in Los Angeles, where she is a straight-A students and captain of her high school dance team. Diamond is also an instrumentalist. She plays ukulele, piano and guitar. Since joining YouTube last year, the young artist has earned herself nearly ten million views in under a year. Over the course of that time, she also recorded a number of songs with a variety of producers including: David Ryan Harris (John Mayer), Blake English (Kelly Rowland, Brandy) and Mike Mac (Beluga Heights). She already has over twenty songs completed with plenty more still in the works.
Diamante has quite the resume already about her. It includes singing credits with Richard Marx, serving as a model for a recent fashion video produced by Michelle Phan and Vivienne Tam and even being the focus of a short story written by award winning playwright Josefina Lopez (Real Women have Curves). Now she can add music video star to her resume as she has released not only a new single but the video for her single as well. The single is titled, ‘Queen Bee.’ And the video tries to harness the somewhat old school swing style sound mixed with her pop styling. The video sees the young starlet dancing through her house in a dream sequence, surrounded by a number of young men as she sings, “I’m a queen bee/You can call me honey/But I just might sting…You gotta be sweet if you want my honey/Gotta beware if you want my heart.” Anyone who is a fan of Beyonce or J-Lo will like Miss Diamante’s sound in this song.
