Naya, The Lebanese Girl Who Likes To Party

She is so young, she is so ditsy and if she can figure out how to get the microphone thing to work, she would make a fortune. Naya is not a new comer--she has been in the business for about three years, but technically, she is still new, and has one album under her belt.

At a concert in Beirut at a local hotel, she rocked the night with her playback singing--you can tell when the microphone gets loose, her floral mini dress.She sang her favorite songs to the attendees and she is full of life and the party was fun for her taking part.

I do not know if the dress was a good choice, but the other outfits were not any less shocking. Let's be fair, Beirut like to party.

Egyptian Singer Loai Cannot Go Back To The Top Again

As Loai releases yet another new music video for a song from his album releases earlier this year, I cannot help but think this is a talented guy who has not found a hit for more than five years. This Egyptian singer released three albums, the first was a classic pop album that saw his rise to fame. He second album was average...third album was lacking. Sure it had few songs that are decent, but nothing registered with the masses.

Not sure what is not working with this once lovable but shy artist. I did not love this song and the album while looks classy and puts Loai under a good light, it's just a song that has no soul and a music video that could not make it have one.

The Very Sweet Naji Osta Unleahses "Heik" 2015 The Ladies Album @OstaNaji #HeikNajiOsta2015

Naji sounds like a flirt but he is also a handsome man as well. His album is pretty special, it feels like he is performing with a specific lady on mind. Really, it seems like he is having an intimate conversation with her. Each song is a different topic that vary from "I love you so very much," "you really hurt me and broke my heart", to "get along with my mother". He kept is sweet for certain and this once he chose to sing an Egyptian song that is actually not bad.

A different topic Naji tackles which is how spouses might be less than kind with their mothers in law. This is a real problem and a tough balancing act. Sure some mothers can be troublemakers and too much to handle. But some spouses are mean to the old ladies and try to break them apart. Naji delivers one of the best love songs that has ever created. Naji sides with mothers in this side andhe managed not to alienate his spouse.

Well-done Naji Osta, he has told great stories here and to be frank all my family members appreciate his songs and your voice. Naji is becoming one of the most bankable pop artists.

Mona Milan, The Aftermath Of A Breakup

Mona Milan is heartbroken and she is all tears in her latest song and music video, she is crying about a recent breakup she had. The Lebanese singer does have an album that she has been working on, but due to some family emergency she took some time off. She has already collaborate with few A list composers and lyricists. Had I not known she is Lebanese, I would have guessed she is Syrian or Egyptian.

Essam Karika wrote the music for this  song? I do not believe it. I like her voice, I may not like the song or the topic, but I appreciate the sense of hope.
