Hands Up Music, the Icelandic record label known to support the nations' entries at the Eurovision Song Contest is home to two divas; Chiara and Hera Bjork who knows what it means to perform in front of an international audience. In recent weeks, the official facebook page of the label was promoting the release of a duet between the two and many people have been excited to hear the fruit of this project. As a matter of fact, the track 9 to 5, originally performed by Dolly Party was unveiled earlier today through viral website, YouTube.

9 to 5 was originally released in 1980, peaking at number #1 in the United States and Canada, whilst also managing top ten positions in Austria, New Zeleand and Sweden. The cover version featuring Chiara and Hera Bjork has been given a slight edge with a brand new mix in order for it to confine to the year in which it will be played, 2013. This is Chiara's first project following her controversial track My Żarbun which attained mixed reviews but nevertheless acquired thousands of views.

The three time Eurovision Song Contest participant had never worked with Hera Bjork before and is said to had been relishing the opportunity. As a matter of fact, the two voices came together beautifully and am sure that this will be a successful release for both ladies. Chiara last went to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2009 with the song What If We composed by Marc Paelinck with lyrics by Gregory Bilsen whilst Hera was there in 2010 with the song Je Ne Sais Quoi co-written with Örlygur Smári.
