Young Jordanian singer Diana Karazone, who holds the title of Arab superstar, has just celebrated her 20th birthday amongst her family and close friends. Since winning the title of superstar, Diana has been witnessing a very hectic schedule holding concerts and press conferences throughout the Arab world.

The first album for Karazone has so far witnessed tremendous success around the Arab world and specifically in Lebanon after the huge advertising campaign that was held by her production company. In Jordan the singer’s album was faced with pirating causing the number of sales to be not as high as expected.
Tareq and Ziad Company had bought the rights to distribute the album in Jordan and had made a large purchase order in the hope that sales would be sky high, but the shock came to the owner of the company when the minute the album hit stores pirated copies were made in numerous numbers and were sold for less than half the price of the original. This catastrophe caused the company to face losses and led the owner to file a complaint to the National Library, which is responsible for protecting intellectual rights, in order to prosecute those responsible.
Diana signed the release of her first album “Diana Karazone Arab Superstar” under the production of Warner Music and Music Master International on September 30, 2003 in Beirut at Virgin Mega Stores. A special celebration was arranged for the big event, which witnessed a very large audience all anxiously waiting for Diana to sing.

The new album features nine songs, written and composed by some of the most prominent names in the music industry, and is a mix of Lebanese, Egyptian, and Gulf styles. Diana was scheduled to sing 3 songs for the audience by ended up singing 5 due to the desire of those who attended. –Albawaba.com
