Lebanese singer Najwa Karam’s new album is now in stores, although it does not include a song composed by Melhim Barakat.
For the past three months the two singers were repeatedly featured in the news, particularly on the satellite music channel ‘Rotana’ working on a new song together that ‘Rotana’ would eventually air, according to the Saudi daily Al Hayat.
The song, titled “Ya Minmoot Kilna” (We Shall All Die Together), was composed by Nizar Francis and Melhim after the Israeli-Lebanese war last summer.
When the time came to record the new song, produced by Sa’ed Al Marouq, Karam decided not include it in her new album. Karam was unsure of the song and sources claim there was a disagreement between Barakat and production company ‘Rotana.’
