The world of Arabia did not see Nesreen Tafesh come out of the blue with a big hit, so big that many are unsure what to make of it and how to classify it. The born in Syria to a Palestinian father and Algerian mother is a celebrated actress with many movies and films under her belt. She also has a Moroccan grandmother and his father has connections to Saudi Arabia, such diversity that is rare to see in an Arab artist. About this Nesreen has said in the past, “The unique diversity in my genetics made me look at all countries, “I did not see her as a singer, but after releasing her debut song, she has what it takes to do something new.
That voice is so warm, so loving and so humble that one cannot help put fall in love. It only takes five seconds to know and this is a wonderful song and Nesreen delivers a high dose of emotions in such a classy song. Seriously, the new is being talking about this song non-stop and everyone is either pleasantly surprised or jealous. There is something authentic about this song that makes it so intimate and so close to one’s heart. There seems to be a warm reception for this song on the social media, so many folks fill in love with it and this is a great time as we are coming onto Valentine Day.
It’s a song that relies on simple yet direct lyrics about a love that has gone stale. When love goes missing, Nesreen sens this song to make her case and win him back. Love how this track feels like a perfect lounge song from a distant time. Arabs have already shown their love for this styles of songs in the 60s and 70s. Nesreen is drawing inspiration from those fondly remembered years. Said Al Marouk captured the story so well as he directed Nesreen and helped bring out the class and charm. Now, this is a song that does not seem to get old, as it’s one not meant to send one to the Next button…instead you will be playing it over and over trying to decode it and maximize its magic. Well-done Nesreen, cannot wait for your next song but I know this song will be with us for years to come.
