Ahlam fears releasing new album amidst possibility of a US-Iraqi war
Close contacts to UAE singer Ahlam revealed that the singer is deliberately avoiding the release of her new album in the fear of war breaking out. The singer feels that if the US calls war on Iraq the music industry will also be affected negatively making any new release of albums at a time like that would be a total loss.
According to the Saudi based daily, Al Riyadh, Ahlam intends on releasing her album when an agreement is reached between the US and Iraq and the possibility of a war no longer exists.
After completing her new album the singer decided that it was not up to standards and rerecorded it over once more. The new album titled "Ahsan" (Better) features twelve songs written by prominent Gulf poets and composers.
On a different note, the singer has just completed a successful performance at the Dubai Nights Festival and was crowned best Arab singer. She also participated in the Doha Festival in Qatar where she was greeted by a large crowd of fans eager to hear her sing. –Albawaba.com
