Posted By : IHM, Posted On : October 14, 2015

Shakila’s 2nd week with IHM and already on 4 charts

Shakila has been with IHM for two weeks reporting her digital sales from her website keeping her on the charts. This week she hits three charts with two titles, reaching #1 on Heatseekers regional Mountain chart and #6 on World Digital Songs. Originally from Persia, she has been creating world music for years, but had no way to make it count within the industry until finding IHM. Here’s what she had to say about working with IHM so far:

“Being an Artist for over 30 years, one of the biggest challenges is who to trust. Indiehitmaker made this decision easy for us. Thank you for your top quality direct support and care to make this happen. Truly one of the best services out there, highly recommend it to all artists.”

Along with her single, Shakila also charted on two Heatseekers charts with her digital album sales taking the number one spot in the Mountain region and climbing from #6 to #5 this week on Heatseekers Pacific.

Check out her latest video called “Teach Hate How to Love Again” on her youtube channel from her recent charting album “11:11”.
