Hadi Daou defines himself on his Facebook page by the simple statement, Lebanese singer. And to live up to that name he did a cover or a remake of a beloved light oldie about berries. There are lots of Lebanese manly men, and ladies who are getting ready for a wedding. The original song was by Melhem Barkat, it's a signature song by the artist and the lyrics are for Elias Rahabni. Elisa was present at Hadi's launch party last week at Maillon The Club - Achrafieh block.
It's a colorful song about small town love tales, and a sense of community. Hadi has the right voice for this cover, and he kept up his Lebanese charm offensive. I like the Mawal bit toward the end and all the interesting things that take place right behind the artist who keeps on singing. This is the life of the part song and Hady launches a career looking and sounding very refined. It's about a married guy who tells the young woman he is already taken. The atmosphere the director created is pleasant and rare. Hadi keeps the song interesting and I think he is up to a great start. O.J. Beirut was tasked with the production and in my opinion they did well.
the song is like a cool musical that takes some acting and various elements glued together. Hady held his own and make this retro oldie a hit once again.
