Mohammed Fuad’s Love Grows Up
Egyptian singer Mohammed Fuad has wrapped up recording his new album Kaber Al Gharam (Love Has Grown Up), which includes 11 songs, five of them written by the Saudi poet Mansour Al Shadi.
The album will be released soon, according to the Arabic daily Al Sharq Al Awsat.
Among Shadi’s poems which Fuad has chosen for his new album are Kiber Al Gharam (Love Has Grown Up), composed by Walid Saad; Zay Al Leilah (Like Tonight); Mish Habib Had Fina (Not Beloved By Any of Us); Allah Yisabberna (May God Make Us Patient); Lik Haq Tiza’al (You Have Right to Become Angry); and Enta Tithaddani (Are You Challenging Me).
Among the album’s other songs are Al Helm (Dream), composed by Walid Saad and written by Mustafa Murci; Ya Nasi Rouhi (You’ve Forgotten My Soul), composed by Walid Saad and written by Baha Eddin Mohammed; and Al Muthaharah (Demonstration), written by Baha Eddin Mohammed and composed by Munir Hammoudi.
The Saudi poet Mansour Al Balawi, known to musicians as Mansour Al Shadi, decided many years ago to introduce his poems through Mohammed Fuad, particularly in view of the fact that the latter has achieved big successes in the Arab cassette market.
Fuad’s string of hits has spurred the poet to give the rights to his poems to the singer for his new album, which will be distributed by the Saudi company Tala.
Shadi has been known to be distancing himself from the Gulf arena and offering his poems to Arab singers through works by Egyptian composers, in addition to other lyrics he offered to the Syrian singer Asala Nasri, including the song Yamin Allah (By God).
He also offered the Tunisian singer Latifa the lyrics for her song Gharamak Muzayyaf (Your Love is False) and the artist Wardah Al Gazaeriyyah lyrics for her songs Bawadda’ak (I Say Good Bye to You) and Min Bein Al Uloof (Among Thousands) composed by Baleegh Hamdi. He also collaborated with other Egyptian artists including Hani Shaker, Mohammed Al Hilo, Ehab Tawfiq and Medhat Saleh on his song A’addet Laiali and many others - Albawaba.com
