Saber Rebai Dishes On Music, The Voice, and His Album


Aside from his music, he is known for his ex-wife and his current wife. He is Saber Rebai and he means business and entertainment. A Tunisian who is a rock star and now making the transition into an elder of Arabic music. He is a beloved artist within Rotana who booked every billboard in town. He also occupies a chair on the Voice.

He is a little drama sort of guy. I like to hear him speak, his dialect is pretty special. He has a new album out out and it seems to have landed well. He and the couches on the voice took some heat for not being warm toward Ricky Martin--Saber said they had their mics off that moment. I think Arabs are sucking up to foreign celebrities.

I like how he talked ab out romantic songs--pretty powerful song that shows his quality voice. He has a new music video as well.

Just Another Diana Haddad Music Video! @DianaHaddad


The Lebanese-Emirati pop star likes to shoot music videos. It feels like she releases a new music video every three months. In my book, she is the artist that shoots and releases more music videos than most of her peers in any given region in the Arab World.

Money does not seem to be an issue, most pop stars in Arabia peg for sponsors, Diana does not worry too much. she seems to self-finance her music videos. This is why she is able to release more of them than even the great Nancy Ajram.

I love Diana Haddad, just not most of her music in the last few years. She makes music that gets her high-paying gigs in the Khaleej where she is home. She makes music for the fans out there, not the first fans who adores her almost 2 decades ago.

See her latest music video Al Ared Ghannat, a song that lacks a lot of exciting elements and feels like all over the place musically. Not sure other than Diana modeling around, what the music video accomplishes. I love the outfits for sure, I just do not think a song should be about lifestyle alone. Perhaps better Lebanese songs or even Egyptian ones are welcome at this point.

A word of unsolicited advise for the songstress is to invest more time in finding better songs than in coming up with concepts for music videos and outfits to wear. Again, this is coming from a fan who grew up listening to her music and idolizing her.

The Unstopable Pop Artist Asma Lmnawar Shines In "Ahbabtoka Mondo Sighar"

Effortless Asma Lmnawar makes singing look easy. She is so talented in more ways that she knows to count and yet she seems like a hard-working singer who is out with a new song every two months. This time the Moroccan diva released a song for a TV drama and the song states the obvious....I loved you since I was young.....

 A sweet and predictable song that puts the listener at ease because each one of us has something, they've liked since they were little. The soothing music keeps up with the mood and the song delivers an exciting doze of.

Asma Lmnawar in very short years became a power player in Arabic music, and we know very little about her. Not sure how she did it, but her voice builds a good case for her and her versatile singing styles and dialects makes her all too popular.

The Most Chic Young Arab Singer Will Always be Adham Nabulsi @AdhamNabulsi


Adham Nabulsi might have as well took home the title of X Factor. Because though the young and bright singer form Jordan/Palestine has traveled farther in his music career than any other participant on the X Factor Arabia.

For sure, many liken him to the voice and style of Wael Kfoury--you have to admit the similarities. But they are two separate artists with their own strengths. I love the intimacy in Adham's voice. He makes you feel like you are the only one he is singing to. Not sure how he does it, but it feels real. He also changes his tone and tempo as the song goes. Thus making the song interesting.

For example, take his latest single, it's areal gem not just the song but also the cover art accompanying the song. I am so happy Adham is keeping up with his music career, he is also a fun guy to look at. In two short years, he has done all the right things and seems to be carving his name in big and bold letters.

Just look at his might when you check out his Facebook profile or his twitter. He is going places and only up.
