Assi Hilani finally finds the right blend for a new duet
Lebanese singer Assi Hilani has revealed that he is in the process of preparing for a new duet with Lebanese singer Carol Saqr under the title of “Qulli” (Say). Assi’s decision was finally made after an endless search for a suitable female singer, whose voice blends perfectly with his. Carol is known for singing most of her songs in the English language.
Assi will also resume preparations for his upcoming album, which is scheduled for release during the summer season. Hilani has denied recent circulating rumors that he will be holding a duet with Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram. Assi stressed that the news holds no validity and that he does intend on holding a duet with a female singer, but will not reveal her identity, stressing that it will be the surprise of the season.
It was rumored that Ajram and Assi had completed the recording of a new duet under the name of “Aam El Hub” (Year of Love), which was written by Saudi poet Turkey AL Sidairy and composed by Samir Safir. The song was also to be included in a new CD to be released by Rotana Music Production Company, which will feature a number of duets by other famous singers.
The news also had it that the song was even filmed in the form of a music video and is scheduled for release on all Arab satellite music channels in the very near future. It has been revealed that a personal phone call was made to the business office of both singers to inquire about the existence of the new duet and each office gave a contradicting answer to the other a matter which made the news of the song questionable. –Albawaba.com
