Summer is beach vacation and wedding season. And Awesome music comes from around the globe to embody this lifestyle and celebrate this party and festive spirit. For innovative and honey sweet Lebanese pop star Joseph Attieh, he managed to combine the summer in one song and a music video so romantic and so sweet it shouldn’t be legal to enjoy. There is half a dozen of amazing Arabic pop stars who are in good company, Joseph is one of the leaders of that pack.
It’s a simple song from a groom to his bride as they join in reunion and the singer express in so many believable, accessible and picturesque manner that makes you really feel the love and Joseph’s all-access pass to his emotional reservoir. Vocally Joseph does not try to impress rather carry the song with such fine dedication to its pleasant and pleasurable meanings. It’s a delicate song that connects with people in the intersection of their hearts and minds.
A beautiful song like this needs a great visual, luckily Joseph teamed up with a director who dreams up a unique vision for each of his projects. Jad Shwery showed us with us with love and took us all on a perfect vacation where the sites and the view live up to the level of this amazing track. Intimacy is all around in this music video and the actors weren’t afraid to be expressive and generous. The shots by the drone and how it feels like one continuous long shot of beautiful Italy and then to Greece. Boy, the romance of new love reveals innocence by also an unmatched passion.
Then it comes to no surprise that the duo has already surpassed a million and a half views and still counting. While this has been a very strong and exciting summer for Arabic pop music, “Omer Aasal” is one of the few amazing romantic gems offered this summer. Simple does it and this was such an amazing performance by Joseph. A song that traveled to all corners of Arabia and landed in the hearts of so many helpless romantics. Jad stayed loyal to the song’s feel and massage and I celebrate that it worked!
