Maria vows to never seduce
Lebanese singer Maria has vowed to steer away from her usual style of seduction in her music videos. The singer stated that never again will she depend on sleazy clips and songs of low quality to achieve fame.
Maria revealed that her upcoming album will take a different direction and will feature songs of high quality. It was said that Maria had reached an agreement with the music satellite channel 'Melody' to record a number of songs for the late Egyptian diva Umm Kalthoum and to film some of them in the form of music videos.
This fact has caused anger to break out among the heirs of the late singer, who consider Maria singing songs for Umm Kalhoum an insult. The heirs stated that Maria will only degrade the essence of Umm Kalthoum's songs, and to have someone like Maria sing her songs is unacceptable.
It was added that if Maria went on with her plan, the heirs will take legal actions against her.
Maria had been absent from the scenes the past two years and finally returned with the new album "Wirji't Tani" (I have returned again).
Maria has separated from her business manager Jad Sawaya, and stated that he was the one who forced her to acquire the former style of seducing viewers to gain fame. She added that she will be taking a new path that will only depend on her ability and talent to sing.
Maria's new album features eight songs in the Egyptian dialect. She worked with Lebanese composers Zaher Al Baba and Talal Qantar on the album, as well as Egyptian composer Sharif Taaj who presented her with the composition for the song "Nefertiti."
Production Company ‘Al Sabki’ has reached an agreement with Maria, known as the ‘corn flakes singer,’ for a leading role in a new film.
‘Al Sabki’ cast the singer Marwa in the film "Haha and Tufaha," benefiting from her daring personality, and now hopes to do that same with Maria. Maria is expected to take part in a number of different films.
