Uncertainty leads Nawal Al Zoughbi to postpone album once more
Lebanese singer Nawal Al Zoughbi has set the final date for the release of her upcoming album to be mid-January 2004, after she had postponed it several times. The singer revealed that after she thought she had completed the selection of songs for the album, suddenly decided to delete three songs from it.
According to the London based Elaph, Nawal had listened to three different songs that were not in her album and thought they are more suitable, and so replaced them with three existing ones. Nawal also announced that she will film one of the three new songs in the form of a music video to be released at the same time the album is.
Nawal Al Zoughbi had headed off to the United States of America where she is scheduled to hold a number of live concerts in different cities that have heavily populated Arab communities. Nawal revealed that she will be spending over a month in the US and will be hosting a live concert on New Year's Eve in New York City. Nawal revealed that she had reached an agreement with her husband to leave their children with her mother until she returns home.
Nawal has recently completed shooting her latest music video for the song "Rage’li Leh" (You're Coming Back Why), a new song from her upcoming album. The clip is directed by the famous Lebanese director Nadine Labki, who also directed the hit songs "Akhasmak Aah" (I'll Upset You), "Ya Salam" (Oh My) and, "Siher Oyounoh" (The Magic of his Eyes) for Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram.
The new video clip was shot in Al Ashrafieh one of Beirut suburbs under the supervision of technical director Yahia Sa’adeh. The clip introduces Nawal in a new look with the help of makeup specialist Elly Fagali and hairstylist Toni Mindaliq. Nawal has been absent from the scenes for some time, since she released her latest album "Illy ITemanaytoh" (The One I Wished For).
Rumors had it that her absence was due to the fact that she had gotten a divorce, which she strongly denied ever occurring. Observers wonder if Nawal’s new album would be a hit after several new singers have appeared in the scenes, as Nancy Ajram, Amal Hijazi, Allissa, and Haifa Wahbi.
The singer denied circulating rumors that she underwent a new plastic surgery for her new look that will accompany the release of her upcoming album. The singer stressed that her new look will only depend on a new hairstyle with a different color and different shades of makeup.
The singer stressed that she does not need to have any plastic surgeries done for a new look can be acquired with the help of a beauty specialist. Nawal revealed that she has just completed the last recordings for her new album which will hold the title of “Insa Ili Faat” (Forget the Past). –Albawaba.com
