Five months after the stratospheric launch of her debut single Ella Enta, Dana Hourani has finally released her second song, Lahza.
Hourani describes the song as "everyone's love story". Press play for your first listen.
Like her debut release, Lahza is also sung in Arabic. “I feel like I’m going to speak to a wider audience in the Arab world,” the visual artist told BAZAAR on set of her April cover shoot. “You know, sometimes I feel like my page and my style doesn’t speak to the Arab audience — it speaks to the European audience. Releasing a song in Arabic I feel will do the opposite. At the end of the day I’m Arab, I’m Lebanese and I come from the Arab world. I speak the language, maybe not very well, but why can’t I sing in this language?”
Ella Enta garnered incredible success on Youtube and boasted over 100K views in just the one month. Hourani went on to perform the song at the Adonis concert at this year’s Jounieh International Festival in Lebanon.
