Rising Artist Selldretti has a lot to celebrate as his new single Composure reached the #1 spot on the iTunes Top 100 Hip-Hop/Rap Charts and the #2 spot on the overall iTunes Top 100 Charts in South Africa. This notable accomplishment is a testimonial to his work ethic and dedication because being an independent artist is a very challenging but rewarding career. “I am not only shocked that I did this, but I also dedicate this accomplishment to every independent artist making a difference in the music business”, says Selldretti.
