Assaf did not want to be too far from his fans during the holy month so he did something he has yet to do, released a religious songs for the month. I guess we could not take a break form everyone’s biggest Palestinian idol. He sounds a lot meeker than he usually is. I love the music and the topic is not that fresh to begin with.
But Assaf is right to throw his hat into the ring and compete with so many other stars. The Dubai living Arab Idol has made it but he knows that does not last unless he works hard and keep the fans impressed. Aside form that vocally the song offers something new about Assaf, he takes his time and transcends by hitting all these high notes. He shows up in a different song how mighty his voice can be.
محمد عساف – يا سيداً | Mohammed Assaf – Ya Sayyedan
