The date for the launching of Al Zoughbi's upcoming album has finally been set to be released in the second week of April 2004 by Alam El Phan Production Company. Nawal had stressed that the delay for the release was due to the fact that she had heard two new songs and was very impressed with them and so decided to record them and include them in the album.

Nawal stressed that the two are on excellent terms and she holds high respect for him and his company. She added that the delay was in her advantage because it means a better quality for her work.
The singer announced that the album is finally ready for release and has been submitted to Alam El Phan Production Company, which will handle its distribution and set a date for its release.
