Rouwaida Attieh thinks big, dreams big, and delivers big songs. The lady from Syria sets her sight on a new Arabi dialect to conquer, she is going after the Iraqi dialect with he new big release. The good news ever since she became a star more than a decade ago, she has to release one bad song. Each of her songs are carefully selected and nicely done.
So, when Rouwaida Attieh offers a new song, you know you are right to be excited. For me, she is like a new Najwa Karam but from Syria and for the rest of Arabia. I like her choice and appreciate that she is one of the few pop stars from Syria who are calling for one motherland. The beautiful music video is filmed on fruit orchard and there are so many ladies working the farm....the new thing...Rouwaida Attieh introduced a new dance for this song. She is not known for her dance moves, but with the releae of Abou Samra, she steps into this world.
This is a simple music video that takes us many years back and honestly remind me of my grandparents farming their orange groove in Palestine. This time Rouwaida Attieh is making her Iraqi fans happy as she sings for them. While she has done many personal and captivating music videos, and romantic stories this one is a fresh take. I do not love the male boss and all women workers, it's like they are a bunch of teen girls crushing over him. I have seen similar music videos by Nancy Ajram and perhaps Carol Samahe few years back (others as well) But Rouwaida Attieh takes a different route and keeps the song and the music video entertaining.
Rouwaida Attieh is now one of the coolest pop artists working in today's Arab world. She has worked hard to be where she is and to be frank, her talent is too big to deny. We must recognize the production team and the ones who filmed such a colorful story.
