Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama is in the process of releasing his latest album "Al Hub Al Kabeer" (The Big Love) under Alam El Phan Production Company. The album is said to be the last one Ragheb will release under Alam El Phan, as it is rumored that he is currently holding negotiations with Rotana Production Company for the possibility of joining them.
According to the London based Elaph, Ragheb did not make any public announcement regarding the possibility of his shift to Rotana. Alama is currently shooting two songs from his upcoming album, which features 12 songs, in the form of a video clip in complete secrecy refusing to give out any details.
Alama was shocked when he heard of recent circulating rumors that a dispute between him and Egyptian singer Ehab Tawfiq had broken out over a song. Ragheb is amazed how such a rumor had spread so fast stressing that there is no form of dispute between him and Ehab over any song or anything else.
It was rumored that Ragheb had wanted to include a song in his new album, but was shocked to learn that Ehab had already took it and bought the legal copyright for it. The dispute was said to have been created by composer Mahmoud Balkouneh had supposedly had promised the song to both singers.
Ragheb noted that the truth of the matter is, there is no such song that he is fighting over and that he has already chosen all the songs for his upcoming album long ago. The singer expressed extreme disappointment towards several media agencies who attempt to create problems between him and other singers, saying that such actions are unethical. –Albawaba.com
