Roula Saad must be 'crazy' to sing Iraqi-style!
Is she just trying too hard? Just when things threaten to go stale for Haifa's co-national and rival, Lebanese singer Roula Saad, the pop-star pulls out all the stops as she prepares to throw an Iraqi number into the mix. Determined to make her mark on the Arab-scape, the diva is recording a new song in the Iraqi dialect, marking her first foray into the Babylonian tongue since enetering the world of pan-Arab music.
The song is aptly titled "Majnoonah" (Crazy), since the singer has to be quite bold to try to master a fine music tradition.
According to Sayidaty.net, Rola - former collaborator with big-hitter Sabah - has set her sights on filming the video for the song home-side in Beirut, in the coming few days.
Roula is very upbeat about the release and is hopeful it will go down a treat with her expectant fanbase and join the ranks of other crowd-pleasing tunes.
