Fans of the British Egyptian up and coming singer Zayne Knight let us know over the past few days that they really adore him. There’s something of a loyal fan base for Zayne. This is something really to be proud of. Not many Arab singers have this kind of loyalty who would take the time to respond to criticism of their beloved singer.
It’s good to be Zayne Knight, if all those fans buy his songs and purchase his album, he is in a good shape and he seems light years ahead of all those pop singers that both look and sound the same. So in regard to our previous review about the teaser for his upcoming song Shake It, we were unhappy.
Like everyone else we make mistakes–I know I do. So if you feel we were harsh on Zayne, then I am sorry you feel this way. Not to get into it again, but this is an open forum, we like debates and encourage them. This blog is for Arabic music, to get it out there and establish some resource in English for people who want to learn about the culture and the art of our home.
We should be encouraging the gifted youth entertainers, not pile on them, that’s why I am glad to say that I look forward to seeing Zayne’s new music video. Maybe then we will have an educated opinion about it–sure as we repeatedly have said on the past on this blog, teasers can be tricky.
