To release, or not to release: That is Amr Diab’s Eid question
The release has already been postponed several times, but Egyptian singer Amr Diab really had our hopes up this time for an Eid El Fitr celebration to the sounds of his long awaited new album. Should we start the party now, or do we need to guard our heart and wait even longer for his 12-track album to come out?
Recent announcements got us excited that the pop star would be busting out his newest stuff during the Muslim holiday Eid El Fitr, and yet no official promo campaign has been made. What gives?
Has his recent trip to Greece to perform for Arabs living there distracted him from holding true to his latest promise?
Surely renowned song poets like Majdi Al Najar, Baha Al Deen and Tamer Hussein who have partnered in the project are just eager to put it on the market.
Perhaps with everything so unstable in Egypt, it's hard to make big hype about anything right now, even one of the biggest songster's album release. Let's keep our eyes wide open this weekend and keep on the lookout for the album composed by Khalil Mustafa, Amro Tantawi and Amr himself, juuust in case.
Do you think Amr will let us feast on his music this weekend, or just be disappointed again? What's your Eid album prediction?
