Prominent Syrian singer Asalah Nasri is currently holding extensive work sessions with a number of Gulf poets and composers as part of her preparations for the new album she intends on releasing, which will be sung in the Gulf dialect.
The album will also feature a special duet between Asalah and Bahraini singer Khaled El Shaikh. The duet “Dawlet Hub Mahzoomeh” (A Defeated Love Nation) is written by Saudi poet Hattan. The production company ‘Rotana’ will produce the new album that is expected to witness tremendous success especially in the Gulf countries.
On a different note, Asalah and husband director Tareq Al Arian are going to have their first child.
The day she discovered her pregnancy was one of happiest in her life, said Asalah.
Recent rumors claimed that the couple, married almost one year, had already divorced.
Asalah asserted that her relationship with Tareq is based on true love and mutual respect. She will not allow vicious rumors to interfere in her private life, said Asalah, adding that the tabloids were published intentionally to hurt her.
‘Rotana’ released Asalah’s latest album “Hayati” (My Life), her second release with the company.
The feature song “Hayati,” takes listeners through Asalah’s life’s journey. The album is her life transformed into music, said Asalah.
Asalah dedicated the song “Bain Eidaik” (In Your Arms) to her husband Tareq.
The album is Asalah’s first releases after divorcing her ex-husband Aiman Al Thahabi.
