The pandemic might not be over, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a good time while adhering to COVID-19 safety measures. All that’s needed is a good soundtrack.

Luckily for us, there’s plenty of turn-up songs that originated from the MENA region. And no, we’re not referring to the new wave of Arab rap. This year, we’re strictly listening to cha3bi music.
