The first days of the new album "Habibi Ma Itrooh Ib'eed" (My Love Don’t Go Far) released by Tunisian singer Latifa, have proven to be a huge success with people rushing to record stores in order to buy the album. The new release marks Latifa's return to the music scenes after an absence that lasted over three years.
Her album was previously scheduled to be released on June 26, 2003, but was postponed due to a few minor problems, reported the London based Elaph. The album holds the title "Habibi Ma Itrooh Ib'eed", and is produced by Alam El Phan Music Company. It features a variety of 12 songs that were very carefully chosen by Latifa. The album includes many surprises, with a Khaliji (Gulf) song written by Prince Badr Bin Abdul Muhsin.
It was revealed that the singer held a live concert on the Egyptian satellite channel in celebration of her new release and plans on holding more in the very near future. Fans of Latifa who had created a website for her, have gone out of their way and made a special section on the site where people can comment on Latifa's new release and write their honest opinion of it.
Latifa is expecting a big success with her new album, especially since she spent a lot of effort and time on making sure that the album meets the highest of expectations. Latifa had previously announced that after a desire that lasted over three years, she will be singing a song written by renowned poet Prince Badr Bin Abdul Muhsin. The delay of her latest album was mainly based on the fact that she was waiting for an acceptance from the Prince.
Latifa had met with the Prince several times at different events in Lebanon and Paris, in which she expressed her admiration to his works and how she would be honored to sing one of his poems. Soon after, the Prince wrote a poem for Latifa, which she accepted wholeheartedly.
The song, entitled "La Ana Ansa" (I Won't Forget), will mark Latifa's debut with a Khaliji song. The song's composer, Mohammed Shafiq said that "the work came upon Latifa's wish to have a joint project with Prince Badr, and for his part the Prince welcomed the idea and worked on 'La Ana Ansa' poem." –Albawaba.com
