Are you even a millennial if you didn’t spent summer of 03 jamming to Ruby’s ‘Enta Aref Leih’? The 21-year-old shook the region with her provocative Sherif Sabri-directed music video, dancing her way through Oxford Street, complete with the ultimate noughties fits.
Since then, the Egyptian singer quickly became a household name, releasing two studio albums by 2007 and starring in twelve Arab films, namely CIFF Golden Pyramid Award winning Al Shawq.
After a 13-year long hiatus, Ruby is finally making her musical comeback, and her long-time fans are rejoicing. The six-song album is rumoured to be titled ‘Heta Tania’ and will be produced by Egyptain producer Waleed Mansour, according to filfan.com.
For her new tunes, Ruby has recruited a packed line-up of nine Egyptian songwriters and composers. The celebrated Ayman Bahgat Amar, Aziz El-Shafei and Ahmed Ibrahim will be joining the roster, amongst others.
As for the music videos, Egyptian director Mohamed El Qadi, who previously worked with the likes of Sherine Abdel Wahab and Mohamad Hamaki, will be leading the production.
This wouldn’t be the first time we hear Ruby’s eclectic voice this year. The singer has made an appearance on TV program ‘Sahibet Al Saada’ on New Year’s and has sung alongside artists Wegz and Bahaa Sultan.
