Naya seemed to be too quiet for the past two years, but she seems to want to be back to music scene in 2017 as she just dropped a single and a music video. It’s a philosophical track in Egyptian about life and boredom. It’s a song set in a strange night club and how everything is the same now. Naya sounds a bit different than I remember her being from years ago. It’s just different not in a bad way.
I really believe Naya is talented and feels a bit more European in this music video in terms of message and style. I welcome the comeback and celebrate it with the hope Naya will be doing more this year. I think we need more of these songs that tackle larger theme in life and not just romance. This feels like a real song that people can relate to about their own lives and their own problems.
Frankly, it’s songs like these that give me hope for Arabic pop. No need to keep trying the old tired formulas…try to be different and Naya just did.
