It was not long before Alma released her first track through the label. The single, titled ‘Karma’, instantly sped to no. 5 on the Finnish charts. Her next single with an accompanying EP was ‘Dye My Hair’ a tongue in cheek look at the whims of devotion that Alma wrote after joking around in the studio. The track had on 30 million Spotify stream and achieved a top ten position on the charts also.
