Latifa heads off to Paris for new music video
Tunisian singer Latifa has recently headed off to Paris-France to begin shooting a second music video for one of the songs in her upcoming release. The singer stressed that she chose Paris to shoot her clip in order to add more meaning to the song.
According to the London based daily, Al Hayat, Latifa plans on releasing her new album along with a music video she had previously completed in Lebanon. Her album was previously scheduled to be released on June 26, 2003, but was postponed due to a few minor problems. The album will hold the title "Habibi Ma Itrooh Ib'eed" (My Love Don’t Go Far), and is produced by Alam El Phan Music Company. It will feature a variety of 12 songs that were very carefully chosen by Latifa. The album will include many surprises, with a Khaliji (Gulf) song written by Prince Badr Bin Abdul Muhsin.
Latifa is expecting a big success with her new album, especially since it's her first release in the past three years. The singer spent a lot of effort and time on making sure that the album meets the highest expectations. Latifa had previously announced that after a desire that lasted over three years, she will be singing a song written by renowned poet Prince Badr Bin Abdul Muhsin. The delay of her latest album was mainly based on the fact that she was waiting for an acceptance from the Prince.
Latifa had met with the Prince several times at different events in Lebanon and Paris, in which she expressed her admiration to his works and how she would be honored to sing one of his poems. Soon after, the Prince wrote a poem for Latifa, which she accepted wholeheartedly.
The song, entitled "La Ana Ansa" (I Won't Forget), will mark Latifa's debut with a Khaliji song. The song's composer, Mohammed Shafiq said that "the work came upon Latifa's wish to have a joint project with Prince Badr, and for his part the Prince welcomed the idea and worked on 'La Ana Ansa' poem." –Albawaba.com
