Lebanese signer Elissa shocked fans when she took to Twitter yesterday to announce that she is retiring from music. “I am preparing this new album with a lot of love and passion. The reason is that it will be the last one in my career,” she wrote.



“I am announcing this with a heavy heart but with a lot of conviction because I can’t work in a field that is similar to mafias. I can’t be productive anymore.”

Whilst she didn’t elaborate further on why the music industry is “similar to mafias”, fans having been drawing parallels between a Tweet last year where the Ye Meryati songstress complained about her music being blocked because of a deal by her record label, Rotana.

“My content is blocked by Rotana because of their new agreement with Deezer,” she wrote back in 2018. “I am devastated to see my efforts vanish after all these years.”



The deal saw her songs removed from a key Arab music streaming platform on which she had racked up 500 million plays.
