Saad Lamjarred is a Moroccan pop singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, record producer and actor. Having grown up in an artist family, Lamjarred became famous after his songs broke YouTube audience records, making him a major figure in Amazigh (Berber) and Arabic pop.
Lamjarred’s music production took a brief pause while he was on trial in Paris for sexual assault, but he made a come-back with his August 2017 comeback entitled “Let Go.” It was an immediate hit, earning him about half a million views on YouTube within an hour of its release.
Despite facing rape allegations on various occasions since 2010, Lamjarred maintains a big following on music streaming sites, with more than 13.4 million subscribers on YouTube and his most popular song “Ensay” amassing more than 22.6 million views.
