Laura Khalil a taxi driver in Lebanon
Lebanese singer Laura Khalil has returned to the scenes with a new release “Rawi’ A’sabak” (Take it Easy) under the production of Rotana. Laura also filmed one of the songs “Raih Ala Feen” (Where are you going) from the album in the form of a music video, using a completely different style than her previous music videos.
The new clip is directed by renowned director Salim Turk and was filmed in the heart of Beirut over a period of two days. In the video, Laura plays the role of a cab driver in Beirut driving an old car. Laura had created heavy traffic while driving the car due to the fact that it kept turning off to the point that made her demand that they stop filming. Salim refused to stop the filming stressing that if they did not work hard the end result of the clip will not be satisfactory.
Laura had met with a number of poets and composers from the United Arab Emirates in preparation for her album. One of the big names the singer has revealed will compose a song for her is UAE prominent composer Ibrahim Jumaa. The singer had held numerous negotiations with Ibrahim until the two reached an agreement on the song that is the highlight of her album. The new album features a variety of styles in which Laura attempts for the first time in her career to present something new for her listeners.
Laura last album released last summer was a collection of revived popular songs by prominent singers, Wardeh and Sabah. The new included Wardah’s two songs: Khels al Kalam (Nothing left to be Said) and "Ya Liali" (Oh Nights) in addition to Sabah’s song "Ashqa wa Ghalbana" (lover and helpless).
