Romantic wonderboy Salim Assaf has finally released the music video for his title song “Ah Ya Bayi” where he showcases his sense of humor. For years, artists have sought his lyrics and music and Salim has been generous with his work that made a lot of people famous and gave Arabia some of its finest Lebanese tracks. Salim is also a singer and he been so for years, but his first album did not come out until earlier this year and it was such a delight. I mean for years, he has been releasing single releases and these songs does well on radio, social media in music apps.
Now, we see him in his music video for the hit song, and the guy shows his sense of humor for a change. The song demands it and senses it changes from his sweet love songs, it made for a good change of directions. The lyrics are pretty clever, the music is pretty inspiring. Salim plays one of these Lebanese boys characters trying to impress his love interest. Remember that line in the song that says, you are prettier than Haifa (as in Haifa Wehbe)
Love the beat and the music video makes the song a new level of fun. Thanks to director Ruby Malek who did a fine job in the direction and the storyboard. Salim outdid himself here in composing the songs, lyrics, and acting.
