You Must See Maya Diab's New Music Video - Gatifin #gatifeen @mayadiab

Maya Diab does not go away for very long and she does not let you miss her, this is why you are about to hear from her in about under three months. This time she connects with nature as she pursues loves, she goes back into a community where they like nature, goats, and open fields. Note how the song is in the delightful Bedouin dialect that is understood by the great majority of Arabs.

This is really cool song from Maya, it's different than her night club loud DJ and house songs she has been doing. This song required talent and Maya took the challenge on. The song is about picking fruits, grapes and apples, dates, and pomegranates. She is all energy and going for the natural look.

This looks like hippie/gypsy community and the song has a foreign beat to it, but a likable one. This is a trendy outfit feast. Happy is what this album spills, then that funky groups hit the city with their chicken and the city of Beirut plays along and breaks loose. This is a new milestone for Maya, this is the finest song and coolest pop track from her in the past two years.

If you like Maya Diab, you will love this song and if you hate her, you would consider changing your mind. Maya has came a long way and for the past three years she has shown that she is worthy of being a top pop diva and a socially responsible entertainer.

WATCH: #زياد_خوري - خلينا نتكتك | Ziad Khoury - Khalina Ntaktik

Ziad Khoury, the Lebanese heartthrob and just nice guy and Arab Idol runner-up is back with a really cool song that shows off why he is famous in the first  place. Ziad has toured the world with his friend and fellow Arab Idol Mohamed Assaf. They duo seem to be the best of friends. And this is not something you see every passing day.

However, this once Ziad Khoury is all on his own, a song with a clever title, gadgets, sweet ride and friends on the road. The song glows happy, but it does not swing in full-speed until Ziad shows us his Mawal skills. He is way good for his age and this is something Lebanese and others appreciate. This is a love song but for those who like fun and games. Ziad deserves to be where he is, I like his style. I did meet him and felt he was genuine and warm. Now he is doing the Debka thing, but not until he won your mind.

Wissam Al Amir the colorful Lebanese singer and composer wrote this song to his buddy and home boy Zaid. I like the sense of party and the dance moves Ziad busts. Well-done team Ziad Khoury. This song allows Ziad to be pretty much anything he wants to be. He won over all demographics with one single--not an easy job.

Elissa Unleashes Her Inner Bunny In "Hob Kol Hayati" @elissakh

Elissa is being pimped out by Rotana, and they picked a very cold season to air our her summer song on the beach. A love song that feels breezy and has a kick...filmed in a private beach where parties are a sure thing. For the first time, you see other women sharing the screen with Elissa the bunny. There has always been cute guys with her...but this time Elissa feels comfortable bring other good looking friends for the party.

As all her music videos, she pulls the girl in love look, lots of cellphones and selfies, but also a pool and wet clothes going for sexy. Elissa shows off some serious skin and some lean figure here and not to be forgotten the fancy phone that paid for this song. The song is about love, when it's disconnected from Elissa's personal reality.

I think this is the first song by Elissa where there are other people who get screen time other than her and her boy toy. That roller coaster is pretty rad, how about some cotton candy from the fair? Why not since you are 12 years old. I have not clue what she seeks to accomplish with those bunny ears, she had them on her album cover, she had them in the first music video and they make an appearance in the second music video.

This is a good song, entertaining and it does what Elissa does sell fantasies of dreams and hot men. But then she never have been in a relationship before. The only relationship she has is with her bank account and her phone. I think one thing is true, people are getting old for her songs, and she is winning some newer demographic, but not as fast as she is losing them. Rotana has been good to her and she has been a consistent hit-maker and a concert magnet.

Diana Karazon Covers A Egypt Love Song By Aida el Ayoubi

Aida Ayoub had a hit song in the early nineties. A song about love for country and people form that land. It's a love story one has for people form their own countries. It was a sweet song for Egypt, its people and a cry for attention, do not abandon your country--she needs you. The song is now a classic, even though the artist who sang it first is semi retried.

Luckily Diana Karazon did a cover of this song and dedicated to the people of Egypt. This cover reminds us of the early days of Diana's career on Super Star when she was a sweet, innocent average girl with a golden Fayrouz like voice. A lot has changed since those days of 2002, but Diana found a comfortable spot and reminded us of one a great song and two of her buried talent.

I am glad this song will remind us of two great ladies. the first one Aida Ayoub and the second Diana Karazon 1.0. I like the cover. Random, did you know that Aida does actually have a German heritage? makes sense why she would love Egypt more than few would understand.
