Yemeni vocalist Waleed Al Jilani is a charmer and a good singer, he is one of these new names in Khaleeji pop and the local folks love nothing more than a talented singer from the land of Yemen. There are dozens of singers and legends in Khaleeji music who come from that magical land of Yemen (Abu Baker Salem, Ahmed Fathi, Belqees, Arwa and so on) Walid is another addition to these celebrated names. Waleed did live in Saudi Arabia for work and now he resides in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Walidd Al Jilani made a big name for himself in one of these popular singing reality competitions (Arab Idol) few years back. Rotana picked him up and released an album for him this year. His breakout song and the title of his album is about his red lines in love. His music video is pretty creative and fresh. It makes good use of technology and there are so many good actors and models appearing along his side. I like the good use of the cellphones and tables to tell the story.
Waleed is a rock star and I love how hip and cool he appears to be in his debut music video. He seems like a nice guy to chill with but please make no mistake this guy is talented and the warmth in his voice is hard to miss. He has also shown a keen sense of style. I am surprised that I did enjoy this Khaleeji love song to a great length.
