The music production company Rotana has set a budget of 4.5 million Egyptian pounds to film a music video from the album “Khaleek Ma’aia” (Stay with me) by prominent Egyptian singer Amr Diab.
The album is scheduled to be in stores during the spring season, and the clip is expected to be the main factor behind the album’s success, and for this reason the singer is placing great emphasis on it.
The singer has nominated Egyptian actress Muna Zaki to be the leading actress in his upcoming film “Al Hilm” (The Dream), which he intends on returning to the cinema with after an absence that lasted thirteen years. The actress has not yet given her approval or denial for her nomination.
Amr is holding extensive work sessions with producer Midhat Al Adel to prepare for the film, in which the singer is expected to perform two different songs in.
On a different note, Diab is using a new strategy to protect his music from internet piracy. The singer completed recording the songs for his new album all at once, and made sure that the recording studio was well protected.
“Khaleek Ma’aya” is also the title of the main song, along with expected hits “Kalatli Akool” (She told me to say) and “Dahikat” (She Smiled), composed by Amr.
The album will be Amr’s last to be produced by ‘Rotana,’ according to his contract.
