Both artists are working for the same label now, Their latest albums released within a weak from each other. Now, one album leaked and the other did not, but it seems for right now the provocative pop artist Tamer Hosny album is doing better than of the dubbed king of pop Amr Diab.
The collection of songs for Tamer Hosny albums had 14 million views on YouTube, Amr Diab songs had only 6.6 million. According to Rotana the Sixth print for Tamer Hosny has just sold out, Amr Diab’s is still selling the first print. Tamer has 256 million YouTube views to 187 million views for Amr Diab.
Need to remember, that Tamer Hosny removes any song of his that is not on his channel, Amr Diab does not do that as swiftly. Also many of Amr Diab songs are owned by Mazzika, so he has little control over the views for those hits. Tamer Hosny fans are much more tech savvy and spend more time online. Tamer knows how to promote and market himself, Amr Diab does not do interviews and is inaccessible.
