WATCH: Hassan El Shafei ft. Abla Fahita In His Weirdest Collaboration Yet!


Hassan is a hip record maker, producer, and music personality. Now he does not like to sing, but he does not exactly shun the spotlight. He has a new song for hims walking around some European capital, living a single life--the street artist who likes to try different thing. He sits as a judge on Arab Idol-he is the nice guy who gives educated opinions.

Did he try new things here? Hell yes, not sure what to call it, but the new record is funky, clubby, dancey, and it has a puppet starring alongside Hassan El Shafie...not sure how to make out these words. Hassan is a nice guy who comes across as such, he has a sense of humor and in this music video he is showing to have a great sense of hipster lifestyle.

Abla Fahita is the most popular iconic Egyptian character from these pop kids. The mixed music track puts a lot of elements together like a good DJ who knows how to spin records.....he brings out the party with a lot of young people. The song is about those who have had their hearts broken.

The First Egyptian To Sing For #Gaza Bravo @MahmudMohey


The first Egyptian artist to stand in solidarity with Gaza and actually record a song in support. This is normally not big news, but since the regime in Egypt appears to be silent on assault on Gaza, it's bold to see a young talented artists to be moved by the Israeli massacres and record a song for Gaza at this very dark hour. At a time when Palestine became a four letter word in Egypt, it's refreshing to see a young artist take a step at this time.

Mahmud Mohy won big on Star Academy, he made many Egyptian proud of him, but now he may be doing something to make all Arabs proud. "I am doing all I can do" for Gaza. Bless you Mohy, your talent is being put to a good place. I hope he does not get attacked for standing in solidarity with innocent people being slaughtered living few hours away form him.
   
 The yet to be released song seems like a serious song with some talented people behind it. "The song is about the massacres that happen to our people in Gaza daily" I love how he sported that well-known Palestinian scarf. The song has been titled "Inside The Neighborhood", the song, the music, and the lyrics are the work of Mohy himself.

Thank you Mahmud, I know we wrote about you here before and have celebrated your hit single on this blog, we are grateful for your talent and big heart.

My Thoughts on Elissa Download: البوم اليسا - حالة حب 2014 Ripped From Original Cd


She is the babe for many who like Arabic romance songs, the dudes dig her because she sings and sounds like the perfect girl--that might not be a real girl, but she sells that sacrifice-loving soul. Ladies think of her as symbol of glamour and fashion. She is beloved in Egypt and in Lebanon. The Gulf thinks she makes no mistakes...and thus they keep paying her to make more music and bring in more concerts.

She is happy to spend most of her time, traveling the world, hanging out with her friend all over the place--she may even pay them to fly with her--we hear she is not really very generous. But when it came to making new songs, she is all serious. She spares no expense to work with the best to get the best. She is demanding, but she knows what works for her--she has been write every single time. That means every single album she recorded and released it became a hit.

She is not a warm personalty, nor does she has social skills. She is not someone you would want to kick it with, she seems to be flat and not intellectually curios. But she makes good songs, she may not live these songs, but she performs well. Then comes her bunny album cover art and her mirror. She is giving her back to her fans, as she seems to be too busy thinking in her head. Now her album got leaked, so the producers Rotana rushed it to the market.  

The lyrics fees tired, the music feels dated, the arrangement nothing earth-shattering. Still not a good album, it keeps Elissa in the game

P.S. May lord have mercy on Gaza and its people.

WATCH: Julia Boutros Honors Palestinian Fighters in Gaza Righteousness is my weapon (Eng Subs) جوليا بطرس - الحق سلاحي


Julia Boutros once again sticks her neck for resistance, she did before in Lebanon and before in Palestine. Now she goes out for Gaza and Palestine. She stands tall and speaks truth to power....Julia has never lost her brand, her allure. She has it, and her heart is in the right place. That mighty strong voice of hers makes you tremble.

While Egyptians artists are taken a nap treating Gaza is a non-event. Lebanon really showed them how to do it, you stand next to your brother who resists an occupation. I love her voice, she means resistance, and it shows in her voice...she is a big fan of freedom and justice---the question why aren't you sir?

This song won't please the Saudi regime, because truth is not on their side this once, Israel fears these songs and have protested them in the past. These settlers need to pack and go home--it does not matter how many they kill or how hard they try to justify the murder of the innocent--ultimately, they lose. They lose a bit of themselves each time they wrong Gaza, Palestine.
