Lebanese singer Assi Hilani has announced that the release of his new album “Fursit Omir” (A Chance of A Lifetime), was made from Egypt since it is where he as a singer was first introduced to the music world. The singer stressed that if it wasn’t for Egypt and its people who would not be where he is today, and so he prefers to release any new album from this country to show his appreciation.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Bayan, Assi denied previous rumors that he refuses to hold performances on Egyptian satellite TV, saying that he is ready to accept any invitation to sing for the Egyptian people. Assi added that last year alone he held over 100 performances at different occasions and festivals around Egypt.
Hilani is currently moving around Lebanon, Egypt, and Turkey to hold concerts and sign his new album ‘Fursit Omir”, which was released under the production of Rotana Music Production Company, and has so far witnessed enormous success around the Arab world.
Assi had previously announced that he expects his new album to find success due to the fact that it is diverse in terms of style and selection of songs. Today, the singer will hold a live concert in Egypt in celebration of the new release. The singer will perform a number of his new songs to the Egyptian audience that holds a special appreciation for his music.
The new summer release hit stores on July 21, 2003 witnessing record breaking sales in a number of Arab countries. His new album is a collection of 12 new songs sung in the Lebanese and Bedouin accents, a style that the singer had refrained from singing in his previous album. Assi stressed that his release is revolutionary in the type of music it contains. The singer is sure that the songs chosen for the album will prove to be a big success among his viewers, in which he used modernized musical and singing techniques.
The singer was recently in Turkey where he filmed his latest music video for the song "Ghali" (Precious) from his new album, under the direction of Saeed Al Marouq in their second working experience.–Albawaba.com
