Al Roumi was recently in Cairo where she met the famous producer Naser Mahrous to discuss a possible cooperation with him for her next album. Majida is trying to offer more songs to the youth in an attempt to attract a younger audience.

In her upcoming album, Majida has included a new song, which talks about the nature of her relationship with her husband and is her last message to him. In the song, Majida is indirectly telling her only love to return and begin a new life together forgetting all the hurt and pain that has taken over their lives. -Albawaba.com
