They plan to surprise Arab and Western audience with their joint cooperation not revealing any details.
Latifa is said to be putting the final touches on her upcoming album. Latifa has been undergoing the recording and production of her album in complete secrecy not allowing any information of its nature to be revealed.

The album, which includes a variety of songs by poets and composers from all over the Arab World, will hold many surprises for all Latifa's fans, with a Khaliji song written by Prince Badr Bin Abdul Muhsin.
