Nelly Maqdasi announces new release
Lebanese singer Nelly Maqdasi is preparing for the release of her upcoming album scheduled to take place after the holy month of Ramadan.
The new album is produced by Rotana featuring ten songs that are a mixture of Lebanese, Egyptian, Gulf and Bedouin dialects.
Nelly has cooperated with a number of prominent composers for her new album, including Prince Turkey Al Sidery, Hani Al Zagheer, and Khaled Al Bakri.
In a recent interview, Nelly revealed that she does not consider herself a provocative singer, and does not intend for her clothing or manner of dance to appear seductive to her fans. The singer stressed that her performance style on stage and in her music videos comes naturally to her, and reflects the way she feels the rhythm of her music.
Nelly noted that the secret behind her success lies in her ability to express her true emotions through her lyrics, making her performance style genuine. She does not support the new wave of female singers who use their appearance alone to gain notoriety, in certain circumstances lacking real talent, she added.
