Lebanese artist Elaine Lahood is singing for the first time in the Lebanese dialect. She usually sings western style music in the French, and has released solo singles in both French and English.
On her first Arabic song “Habook Oyuni” (My Eyes Fell In Love With You), Elaine worked with the poet Amro, the composer Haitham Ziad and the music distributer Toni Saba. Elaine had also worked with the director Walid Nasif on the music video clip for the song.
According to the London daily Elaph, Elaine said that she is very happy to sing in the Arabic language for the first time, noting that many artists are afraid to do so when they transition from western to eastern style music.
Being raised in musical family where her mother Salwa Al Qatrib was an artist herself and her uncle was a director, made it easier for her to bring out her talents, said Elaine.
Elaine’s success has surprised many, and she wants her fans to see that she can master different styles of music.
