Amr Diab in Paris
Egyptian pop star Amr Diab has decided which song from his new album is worthy of a music video. The singer decided on the song “WI Maleh” (What’s Wrong), and has chosen Paris for the filming location.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, Amr’s decision is based on his desire to film a slow and romantic song to match the atmosphere of winter.
Diab recently released his long awaited album, “Kamil Kalamak” (Finish Talking) and is elated over its success.
Amr agreed with American director Cameron Casey to film the new music videos for the album. The cooperation is the second between the two, the first being the singer’s clip “Laili Nahari” (My Night is Day).
Amr had postponed his album because he felt that he needed to take as much time as possible to ensure that it is of the highest quality, the singer explained, revealing that a state of fear always accompanies him with every new release, single, and even concert.
Amr stated that he only presents his work to his audience and his production company ‘Rotana’ when it is ready and he is satisfied with what he has created. He also stated that he is the one who takes responsibility for the album, and its success or failure ultimately affects him.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, Amr is preparing for his return to the cinema after a 15 year absence and will be starring in the new film “Al Muhtarif” (The Specialist) written by Dr. Midhat Al Adel and directed by Ahmad Nader Jalal. Amr has nominated actress Muna Zaki to star in the film.
