Top of the pops: Wael storms the charts across the Middle East
The album has struck the right chord across the Arab world, and is riding high in the charts, by selling copies by the truck-load. In most states in the MENA region the album is outselling all others, with most of the singles also hitting the prized number one spot for the last five weeks.
In Lebanon, “Ya Dili Ya Rouhi” is by far the best-selling album in ‘Virgin Mega Stores’, along with Dubai stores, where it has been the biggest selling album for four weeks. Struggling to compete with the Lebanese star is Egyptian singer Mohammed Hamaki, ending up runner up in the battle for the number one spot with his album “Min Qalbi Baghani” (I Sing From the Bottom of my Heart), and Elissa’s latest release “Asaed Wahdah” (The Happiest One) finishing in third place.
What do you think? Is Wael’s album the best of the bunch in the Middle East? Or should Mohammed Hamaki or Elissa be storming to the top of the charts?
