Lebanese star Elissa releases stay-at-home themed music video

DUBAI: Lebanese singer Elissa has just released a new quarantine-inspired song and music video, starring fellow popstar Haifa Wehbe, to encourage people to stay at home.

Entitled “Hanaghani Kaman Wa Kaman,” which translates to “we will sing again,” the allocated production budget for the video was donated to charity, according to the star’s Instagram post. 

“Just released my music video featuring @HaifaWehbe. We hope it will put a smile on your faces during these times as we get through it together. All the allocated budget for this project was donated to charity. Stay home and stay safe,” the singer wrote.

The clip, which was directed by Lebanese filmmaker Eli Rezkallah, features a pajama-clad Elissa at her residence reaching out to Wehbe, who is also seen self-isolating at home.

The screen then splits into a video-conference with family members and fans tuning in and dancing along from their homes.

With self-isolation measures anticipated to continue for the foreseeable future, the idea of producing a music video, at least the traditional way, seems almost impossible. That’s why Elissa and Rezkallah turned to social media for the visual’s casting.

The popstar posted a call for her fans to send her a video of themselves dancing to any of her songs using the song’s title as a hashtag. 

“Hanaghani Kaman Wa Kaman” is the first single from Elissa's highly-anticipated forthcoming album.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ‘seem much happier’ after family trip 

DUBAI: US rapper Kanye West and his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, returned from their private family vacation in the Dominican Republic this week and they “both seem much happier,” People magazine reported. 

The celebrity couple took the trip last week to try to save their marriage. 

Problems between the parents-of-four started after the 43-year-old rapper announced he was running for the US presidency in 2020. Following a series of Twitter rants last month, the singer revealed he has been trying to divorce his wife.

A source close to the couple told the publication: “They had a good family week in the Dominican Republic. They are continuing the family vacation in Colorado. Kim and Kanye are getting along. They both seem much happier.”

On Friday, West shared a heart-warming video on Twitter of himself dancing with his eldest daughter North during their trip.
