Lebanese signer Assi Hilani has celebrated the release of his most recent album "Dakat Albi" (My Heartbeats), the first under his new production company ‘Rotana.’
During his press conference in Cairo, Assi said that the album was supposed to be released in the summer of 2005, but was postponed.
Assi said that he deviated from releasing romantic songs during the past two years, instead concentrating on patriotic songs that witnessed tremendous success.
The new album, released at the end of December, features fourteen romantic songs along with a new music video for the song “Sa’alo Anni” (They Asked About Me) under the direction of Saeed Al Marouq.
Assi revealed that he and Syrian singer Asalah Nasri are preparing for a duet to be sung in the Lebanese dialect.
Assi was recently in Europe for a short vacation with his family to relax, after working endless hours preparing for the album.
