Amr Diab begins countdown
Out of 22 songs recorded, Egyptian singer Amr Diab chose only 10 songs to include in his upcoming album, scheduled for release during the Muslim holiday Eid El Fitr. Amr worked with a number of prominent poets and composers to ensure the quality of his album, in addition to composing two of the songs himself.
Diab had gone on a strict diet and began exercising in order to loose 10 kilos before filming first video clip from his album. the singer was able to loose the weight in time to shoot the clip before releasing the album.
The singer will be appearing in a totally different look from any he had in the past.
The Music production company ‘Rotana’ demanded that Amr submit the master copy of his upcoming album, to ensure that it is released at the appropriate time, according to ‘Rotana’ officials.
Amr had pushed to record the songs for the new album in an effort to meet the deadline set by ‘Rotana,’ but suddenly decided to postpone the release, due to the recent tragic conditions that have hit the region.
It was rumored that Rotana sent the demand after learning that the singer had reopened negotiations with his previous production company ‘Alam El Phan,’ fearing he may leave ‘Rotana.’
