Nawal fails in comparison to Ahlam
Kuwaiti singer Nawal was not successful in her choices regarding her latest album, and was not able to come out of her classic works and offer her fans anything new. Meanwhile, UAE singer Ahlam’s latest album was released a year ago and is still very popular because of the good choice in her work and continuous change in music that she sings.
The latest album for Nawal was a failure even though her video clip [Biyehsidouni 3leih] was shown on many satellite channels. This failure is due to two major reasons; first, that she did not come with anything new that is different than her previous songs. Secondly, her bad timing in releasing the album, which was done at the same time the albums of Gulf singers Abdullah Ruweished and Abdul Kareem Abdul Kader, and both albums were this season's hits which affected Nawal's album dramatically.
Critics say that Nawal did not take enough time to pick the words of her songs properly the thing that contributed to the failure of the album. Arab fans were expecting more from Nawal but it is obvious that this season Ahlam is wining over her competitor Nawal.
Recent rumors have stated that Nawal is seriously thinking of living in Beirut – Lebanon, and may in fact find a permanent apartment. The singer’s career has been revolving around her being present in Lebanon, where she shot her most of her music videos.
Nawal is to shoot her forth video clip with Merna Khayat in Beirut in the upcoming few days. Merna and Nawal became friends after years of cooperation but this is not the only reason that Nawal has stuck with Merna, but also because the latter was able to give Nawal just the right image to present herself to her fans with.
Merna succeeded in showing the audience all the positive characteristics of Nawal’s personality through her creative work and directing. The latest video clip is for the latest song in Nawal's new album [Ma’goula Tinsani] words by Musa'ed al-Duweis and composed by Hassan Abdullah. The new video clip was filmed in various places in Lebanon but this time no scenes will be shot in studio.
Merna revealed that Nawal sent her the new Album and Merna chose [Ma3goula Tinsani] to film it as a video clip because it's very easy to remember and it is full of beautiful meanings. In the new video clip Nawal will be acting for the first time. The video clip tells the story of a woman who falls in love with a guy then he disappears without any obvious reasons then she starts to remember her good days with him.
Nawal's new look is the work of Fadi Qataya and hairdresser Waseem Murqos, who have managed to stay away from the traditional style. Merna directed three other video clips for Nawal and they were [Rouh, AlShog Jabak, and Tafaseel]. – Albawaba.com
