After a six year absence Egyptian/Nubian singer Mohamed Mounir has returned with an album that is already storming the charts in Egypt and the UAE.
“I waited until I was certain that all the songs on the album were worth releasing after such a long time,” says Mohamed.
The album “Fi Ishk El Banat” has aroused a controversy. Mohamed was warned by friends not to include the title track “Fi Ishk Al Banat” (My Love for Girls) because the lyrics, born from Southern Egyptian Folklore, talk about: “Kissing the lips of the beloved.” But the track, which was released on CD only, has turned to be an overnight sensation.
Excerpt of lyrics from My Love for Girls:
“With the fresh mint perfuming the air and the fruit tree lying its shadow on the garden, she confessed to me her desire and invited me to taste love. She asked me to treat her tenderly. Naamat they called her. I cannot resist her when she waves to me with her irresistible hand and soft fingers. I must admit that in the matter of love, I outdo Napoleon, especially when she captures me with her charming silhouette.”— Albawaba.com
