Lebanese music sensations Maya Diab and Massari collaborated with American hip -hop star French Montana to recreate the hit song “Nour El Ein by Amr Diab”, and the results are almost too good.
The music mastermind behind the iconic remix, Hadii Shara, came up with the idea two years ago while working on an album with LA-based Lebanese R&B singer Massari. It all started when he wanted to create music for the region and Hadii suggested remixing a classic hit. The star has previously joined forces with Akon and Arab Idol winner, Mohammed Asaf, so it came as no surprise when Maya and French Montana joined the team.
The remix is already topping charts with over 1 million plays on Anghami, the regional music streaming platform, where it debuted last week. As we wait for the musical trio to drop their video (that was shot in Cyprus, BTW), listen to the remix here.
