Algerian singer Fuedel was guest on a Tunisian radio show where he revealed that he is the main reason behind the success of Lebanese singer Amal Hijazi. Fuedel commented that before his duet with Amal "Einak" (Your Eye), she was not well known in around the Arab world and even in Lebanon.
According to the London based Elaph, Fuedel added that Amal benefited in a major way from their duet by being able to double her popularity. Fuedel expressed that he hopes Amal does not find offense in his remarks, but he was simply saying the truth and that the credit of her popularity is owed to him.
Her album "Zaman" has gone beyond expectations in the number of breaking figures in the music market all over the world. The twelve-song album, produced by Universal Company in Paris, held two major surprises, the first, her duet with Fuedel, written by Fuedel and Tony Abi Karam, and the second with the duo Omar and Rafi.
Hijazi is currently preparing for the filming of her new music video "Id'eeli" (Pray For Me). All necessary arrangement concerning time, place, and scenario for the new clip have been complete and are underway.
After completing and launching the new music video, Amal will begin preparations for her upcoming album, which will feature a variety of songs selected carefully to appeal to the tastes of her fans. The singer has expressed that her new album is going to be a surprise in terms of topics and styles. She intends on dedicating her time completely to assure a successful outcome.
Amal has recently received an offer to go on tour between Brazil and Latin America. The Lebanese singer has proven to be up to standards by reaching the top charts in the music market once more with her album "Zaman" (The Past), which aired on most local and satellite channels throughout the Arab world. Amal had decided to take time-off and travel to Europe for leisure and peace of mind, after her hectic schedule these past months which included releasing new music videos and hosting concerts around the Arab world during the holiday season.
Amal Hijazi is an architecture Engineer, but never worked in this field, saying that she is "dedicating all my time to music, for it needs lots of time and hard work." – Albawaba.com
