The Much Anticipated Angham Album Arrives @Angham "Innocent Dreams"

Rotana is banking on Angham, she would be the biggest female pop star on their label--at least from Egypt. Angham is an artist who predates the music video craze and the whole pop thing. Sure she was a little girl then singing alongside her father, she is still be big force.

Here's her latest album which is her first in six years--she did release a mini album about four years ago. This is her big album and it must be the comeback her older fans are waiting for. To be blunt, her fans are now older and the younger folks have no idea why they like her. Now, the idea is to see if this album gives them a reason to fall in love with her. The album is meant to introduce young music listeners to Angham. It allows them to explore this classically trained artist who happens to do stellar pop songs.

Rotana is included 12 tracks here, and most of the song have been written by one guy--Ameer Taeema. He is good, but I have to hold judgment until I hear the entire album.

01 - Ahy Gat
02 - Atgah Wahed
03 - Ben Elbenen
04 - Tol Manta Baeed
05 - Aktablk Tahod
06 - Hata Naasa
07 - Ahlam Barya
08 - Fengan Elnesian
09 - Bakrah Elmosika
10 - Bahab Aghany
11 - Ganbak Makany
12 - Baaet Waheda

Angham … Ahlam Barya | انغام … احلام بريئة

The New Pop Album By @MousaOfficial Does It For Me!

Egyptian Mousa (Moses of Egypt) is a new voice in Egyptian pop and he seems like a hard working modest singer who is trying to find his spot under the sun. I respect young artists  who go the distance work hard on their first album with little help from the world.

The sweet and handsome dude goes to war in his music video when he refuses to take calls from his ex. He just shuts he rout and tells her he is no longer gonna be Mr. nice guy. The dude walked away from a relationship and he is not coming back.

In his music video Mousa plays a believable DJ. And there is a model, and a nice car. Surely this is a nice music video that presents itself differently. The good news Mousa sounds different. That means her is not mimicking other pop stars. He is doing his own thing. I am pleased to see him making his own path and being himself and it seems to work.

I like how Mousa plays out the character every Arab guy has on his mind, he is Mr. popular who have choices and the lady not so much. But aside from that, this album deserves a listen. It's actually decent pop album. There are some bright talents that have attached themselves to the album, it just needs a bit more of marketing.  

Mousa - Zaman El heneya / موسى - زمن الحنية

New Moroccan Song Goes Viral! #Jamila Blach Blach

Moroccan hit-maker Jamila is now officially the most popular lady in Moroccan pop. Jamila has all the exotic attributes. And she is a styling lady who goes bold. Jamila she has already stood behind two viral hits that were literary everywhere in the Khaleej and beyond.

Her latest song seems to do a lot with colors, and funk. There's a catchy beat and there is good energy. There are also those back up dancers doing their moves right behind Jamila. And that music bit that sounds like a Moroccan/Khaleeji hybrid.

I like her many looks and that hairstyle keeps changing. It's a Moroccan song make no mistake. A likable star makes a catchy song and the world celebrates. It seems that the craze for Iraqi songs have been replaced with Moroccan songs and before them the Syrian country song had a good run.
So dance you guys and enjoy the party form this creative music force known as Jamila who seems pretty much so inside out.

Saudi Singer Ismail Mubarak @ismaeel_mubarak Charms The City of Cairo

Saudi singer Ismail Mubarak went to Cairo for a concert and it seems he was a huge hit over there too. Not too many Khaleeji artists feel they are famous in Egypt--frankly they do not have to be anymore goes to Cairo. Two decades ago, they would have been asked to go to Egypt and launch their career. But thanks to Satellite TV and the internet, they do not have to be anywhere in particular.

Though many singers form the Khaleej like to go to Cairo for concerts. Since droves of their fans live there--most would be natives to the Khaleej area. So a concert in Cairo is something cool to do. In this case Ismail Mubarak used the footage from his concert for his music video. I like this young artists and his warmth. He seems like a poet whose voice gives a needed hug.

I like the verse in the song "My love to you has no limits, there's no one but you, and I love you forever!" This must be nice to be on the receiving end of these beautiful crafted lyrics.

I like this song "Habibi" It's a sweet song that shows the depth of his fame and talent. Tons of his fans lined up to takes selfies with this charming singer. While many Arab artists dream of singing in Saudi, Ismail is doing the opposite he sins in Saudi but he also can have a sold out concert in Egypt. Ismaeel seems like a nice man who is fun to be in the same room with. There's an Iraqi singer who is a popular name in the Khaleej, I think Ismaeel has bested him with this song and this style.
