Nawal dissatisfied with the quality of new female singers
Prominent Kuwaiti singer Nawal is well known of her diplomacy and quietness while performing any of her songs, but these characteristics have gradually changed lately. The singer was a guest on the TV program Fantasia and she openly criticized new female singers who are competing with their bodies hoping to reach fame.
Nawal expressed extreme anger, because those singers had flipped all the rules of the singing career and affected the general taste of fans and this eventually affects the career of good singers.
These harsh words came out as clear evidence that the new generation of singers is dominating the music industry leaving the older ones out of business. The thing that made the older generation even more furious was the race between satellite channels to do interviews with these young singers and ignoring the real talented ones.
The real threat facing the older generation of singers is that the seductive female singers are not working with individual efforts but are sponsored by big production companies, the thing that means that they will remain for years to come.
Nawal had completed the recording the songs for her upcoming album, which was produced and released by Rotana Music Production Company. The singer’s new album features 12 new songs each carefully chosen and composed and written by some of the most prominent composers and poets.
One of the highlights of Nawal’s album is a song sung in proper Arabic written by the well-known poet Dr. Suad Al Sabah under the title “A’erif Rajulan” (I Know a Man). Nawal has also included a song in the Egyptian dialect, which is a first time attempt by the singer.
Nawal’s song “El Shoog Jabak” (Longing Brought You Back) was the last song she had released under the direction of Lebanese director Mirna Khaiat Abu Elias. The song composed by Mash’al Al Arouj is from her latest album released under the name of Nawal 2002. The singer was afraid at first to try something new fearing it may not match her style and may not be accepted by her audience. Once she had read the script for the music video and noticed all the lighting, number of dancers, and extravagant wardrobe, she felt more at ease and became eager to begin shooting. – Albawaba.com
