Carol Samaha and Marwan Khouri’s romance
It wasn’t enough for Lebanese singer Carol Samaha to be in a romantic duet song “Ya Rab” with Marwan Khouri, she also joined him swinging in the air in her video clip. At three meters high the two singers were hanging in the air by ropes on a nice yet cold spring day.
The two singers were not allowed to show any signs of fear hanging in the air filming their romantic song; which demanded lots of emotions. Who is better than Samaha and Khouri to film such a passionate song?!
The filming of the video clip took place in Al Biqa in an area called Tarshish in Lebanon. The place had added a nice touch to the romantic song, which was produced by the French producer Terri Fern. The producer put a question mark on Samaha flirty style when he showed her in “Ra’lani” video clip where in this clip she was freer.
There were no tensions making this video clip both singers had an easy and fun time making it; however this was Khouri’s first time working with a different producer other than his brother Claude Khouri.
Marwan had an easy time working with the French producer. After meeting with him the French producer had a full understanding of Khour’s style.
Even though the two singers had previously worked together; Marwan expects the duet between the two will start gossip of the two of having a romantic relationship. Samaha and Khouri previously sang three songs together they were; “Itala’ Feyeh,” (Look at me) “Habibi Albi” (My Dear) and “Keef Tensani” (How can you forget me?)
Marwan revealed that he wrote the song because he loved the lyrics and liked the idea. However, Carol was not on his mind when he first started writing the song, only after he was done with writing and composing the song he thought Carol will be a great candidate for the song. Not until then he had called her and asked Samaha to be part of this romantic duet.
This wasn’t Khouri’s first duet; he had a previously worked on a duet with the female singer Basima in 1997. The two sang “Kasak Habibi,” he also sang “Khayal Al Omer” with another unknown singer.
On the other hand this is Carol’s first experience singing a duet.
This clip was produced by Rotana, which spent a large budget to make it a huge success. One of the best scenes in this clip is Carol dancing bare footed. The song will be aired exclusively on the music channel Rotana.
