Carole Samaha - Esmany
Meaning: Listen to me
This MV was #Iconic. Every girl in middle school with me wanted to learn this dance. 100% guaranteed boob/butt shaking content.
Najwa Karam - Am Bemzah Ma'ak
Meaning: I'm joking with you
Classic wedding song.
Haifa Wehbe - Fakerni
Meaning: You think I... (in the song, she continues to sing, "will punish you, and blame you...")
Guys... I heard this a year ago and I can't stop listening to it. RIP my hips whenever this comes on.
Omar Souleyman - Wenu Wenu
Meaning: Where (is she)? Where (is she)?
This is 7 minutes. You can't dance the whole way through... but you will want to. This is what I hope people who aren't Arab/familiar with Arab culture imagine what our music sounds like. Really, really hope. It's a party song, no one will be sitting in their seat when this comes on.
Yara - Ma Yhemmak
Meaning: Don't mind it
This song never fails to make me feel like a professional belly dancer. Maybe it's all the pauses, when you memorize them you'll feel like a pro. Fun to sway to, as well.
Nancy Ajram - Ya Tabtab
Meaning: (Not sure LMAO) He gets angry
I think I'm going to have to make it a hard rule to include one Nancy song per Arabic Bops post, until I run out. Nancy Ajram is as dependable for bops as Britney Spears is. She never fails to deliver. She is our pop princess.
Haifa Wehbe - Fakerni (Saint Bootleg)
Noel Kharman - Hello - Adele/Kaifak Enta - Fairouz
