The Palestinian artist’s latest single — an elegiac slow-burner with a killer guitar line — has attracted plenty of attention since its release on July 10, with Nahas being featured as Apple Music’s New Artist of the Month and seeing her track listed in Spotify’s global Fresh Finds playlist.
The Moroccan-American singer brings both sides of her heritage to this first release from her upcoming EP “Heat,” mixing Western R&B and pop with some Oriental flavor. “I’m a lot of things a Muslim Arab woman isn’t expected to be,” Abir says in a press release. “The current narrative is uninformed and it’s honestly boring.”
The Lebanese pop star — who came to fame on season four of “The Voice” has released an upbeat dance version of this song — the soundtrack to the Ramadan series “Al Awda” — remixed by DJ Red Ramp. The new mix, according to a press release, is intended to “spread happiness and energy for everyone.”

Tunisian producer and composer Aeli recently moved from Dubai to Los Angeles. To commemorate the move — which also marks his transition from architect to full-time music producer — he is set to release a string of collaborations with regional artists, all with the theme of “goodbye.” The first release sees Aeli join forces with a Dubai-based rapper on this Afrobeat track about a disintegrating relationship.
