Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Habibi Ya Nour El Ain  by Egyptian singer Amr Diab. Amr (full name Amr Abdul-Basset- Abdul-Azeez Diab) is one of the most popular Egyptian and Arabic singers and has won the World Music Awards twice. His music is geel pop, with elements of rai, flamenco and Western pop. He's been credited with creating his own musical style , which is called "Mediterranean music". Amr's career spans 30 years, he released his first album Ya Tareea in 1983 and to date has released 28 albums (including a singles collection)! Two of the most successful are Nour El Ain (Light Of The Eye) which was released in 1996 and Aktar Wahed (2001). Nour El Ain is from the album of the same name. It's one of Amr's most successful songs worldwide and an English version called Habibi was also released. I've often danced to it at haflas! Watch the video on YouTube to see a translation for the lyrics.

Update 8/6/16: There doesn't appear to be an English translation on YouTube anymore. Maybe they were removed.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.
