WATCH: Jannat ... Waheshni - Video Clip | جنات ... واحشني - فيديو كليب

Jannat is one of Rotana's biggest pop stars who seem like a good investment. The Moroccan songstress is one of the few recognizable names in girl pop in Egypt. She came to Egypt at a young age with her mother and started to sing professionally. Ten years later, she is a big ticket item where she moves tickets and fills concert halls.

She is a rare talent, the emotional complexity and depth in her style is something of a treat. She does a wide range of songs, from the catchy pop dance songs to the romantic tracks, to life commentary tracks...she does well. She also does sing to Egypt often. This is why Rotana invests in her and releases music video for her....she does not ask for millions or complex orders. It makes it easy to make new songs for her. This way it works for both.

Well done Jannat, I like your model.

WATCH: Iman - Fi Hayati House Music

Here's an tired idea for a pop star to make a music video, rent an abandoned garage and get the ladies to dance to electro music, bring a guy with a skateboard and feature a car. This is the idea that has been made into a million music video around the world. Iman from Lebanon read the same memo. The Lebanese Jean Saliba and his company produced this music video.

She is bold as her outfits seem worth of American pop stars, they are forward it, I like how she winks at the boys and dances with half a dozen of naked boys. Then comes the strange bathtub scene and the scented candles. I like how many outfits

The good news, Iman has a really sweet voice and a real talent, but without dressing down, she might not have a way to make this music video. Not sure what comes next for Iman, but sure she got her song out there.

Welcome Back Talal Salama !"Sukkar Janabak" 2014 Album | طلال سلامة ... سكر جنابك

He is not going to be doing a music video, but some of us are not ready to move on from their most beloved Saudi artist from the late 90s. This is Talal Salama time, he returns with a new album, with much colors, energy, and styles. He still the same voice that you loved, the same charming performance you won you over.

Sure, his songs are mainly playing for the Gulf, but if that's what it take to hear the man, be it. He is one of the native sons who we know very little about, he does not do media circus. He is sort of a quietly famous guy.

We are getting 13 tracks ending the three year sabbatical--the album is with Rotana who singed Tala for three more years. This is his fifth album with the company, and he is one of the early stars to join the company. This is his Saudi Gulf album where poetry is in the center. The title is about sweetness.

Aaed El Monshed, Iraqi Singer Who Wants To Make Iraqi Music Hot Again

Aaed El Monshed is an Iraqi singer who has performed in the Egyptian House of Opera--the big league for many Arab stars. He is out with a new song, in Iraqi and it feels like an oldie only more hip. This song marks his return to making new music. The song is about the wedding of the lady he loved--he is helpless and he is not the groom.

Aaed was kept away form the music scene due to death in his family and disagreement with a production company.  The Iraqi artist is working overtime to make the Iraqi song hot again in Cairo. He is an old style singer and his voice allows him to do old covers for the likes of Farid Al Atrach and Nazim Al Ghazzaly. Aaed is not to happy with the neglect of Iraqi songs.
