Now the male part of the duo, Waylon, just released the country-pop song Love Drunk, a new single featured on his album Heaven After Midnight that will be released on September 5th.
Roberto Bellarosa - Agathe

To celebrate his 20th birthday on the 23rd of August (Happy Birthday Roberto!) he released the video for his new song which is called Agathe. It's a catchy pop tune written by the popular French artist Pascal Obispo.
Stella Mwangi - Biashara
