Lebanese singer Nawal El-Zoghbi has released her new album "Mesh Mesamha" over the weekend, her first album in four years and the Internet is already buzzing. Die-hard Zoghbi fans everywhere rejoice.
The new album, which was produced by Mazzika and features 11 tracks, was officially released in Arab stores on Saturday and the whole album is also available for listening on Anghami, Soundcloud and YouTube, where it's currently trending across the Middle East.
Two of the album's top tracks, "Ya Gadaa" and "Mesh Mesamha," made it to the top of Anghami's top Arabic rankings just two days after its release, and they are now competing with Mohammed Hamaki's successful releases "Agmal Youm" and "Ma Balash" from his hit new album "Omro Ma Yegheb."
Zoghbi's album is already scoring well with both fans and critics alike. The Lebanese beauty appears on the album's cover art wearing a beautifully flowing rose gown while looking at a city's skyscrapers through a window.
In another shot, Zoghbi appears in a distinctive pose that started the hashtag #posewithnawal as fans posted photos of them imitating the famous singer's cover art on social media.
Zoghbi is expected to release a new music video for "Ya Gadaa" this week, which was shot in Romania and directed by Lebanese director Joe Bou Eid . Two music videos were previously released for two of the album's tracks, 'Wala Bahebak' and 'Gharibi Hal Denyi', which were previously released as singles.
The music video for "Gharibi Hal Denyi," which was released in August 2013, won Zoghbi the award for best music video and the award for best Lebanese singer at the OTV Awards in 2013.
