Well I decided to explore my music career as a technical producer like 'Jay Z', 'Kanye West' and many international celebrities have done before, by writing songs and collaborating with other singers to present a different genre. I started working on 'Agaza' (Vacation) with composer Mohamed Yehia and we thought that Pussy is the perfect choice to perform this song. She has such a distinctive voice and is so in vogue. It was a great experience to return to the Egyptian crowd with such a unique project.
After 2011 revolution, the company that was responsible for producing my work closed and I decided to work further on my career as a director. I collaborated with a lot of huge names like Waddea' Alsafy, Yara, Nawal Alzughbi, Jwana Malah, Cyrine Abdel Nour and others. After I succeeded to create my own style as a director, I decided to return back as a singer.
I believe that I became more mature as an artist today than I was at the beginning of my career 10 years ago. I directed my first video clip when I was just 22 years old. I decided to change my vision as an artist because I don't want my success to be linked to the controversy caused by my work.
No I don't regret anything I've ever done. I didn't do these projects for the sake of fame or to provoke people! Back then I was living in France, which is a totally different society with a totally different culture. Now I am more aware of the Middle Eastern mentality and I respect it.
I've been offered a lot of projects in drama and cinema, but now I am more focused to prove myself in the music field. Later on I may consider trying something in cinema or drama as a scriptwriter within a group, to make sure I am presenting something with my vision and style.
Mohamed Samy is a brilliant director and he presented a lot of successful clips with Haifa Wehbe and Tamer Hosny. His success in the video clips world helped him to succeeded in drama and movies.
This album is a different experience. It contains six duets with six different singers and has a variety of genres like Rap, Oriental, Classics and Nubian, which I present for the first time. It has six Egyptian songs as well as two Lebanese songs. In this album I collaborate with artists like Jimmy Hadad and Mohamed Yehia.
My experience as a director helps me a lot in producing my clips the way I visualise them. That does not mean I am against the concept, for instance the late Yehia Sa'ada directed one of my clips in the beginning of my career.
I work to entertain people with new ideas that carry the wow factor. I can't say I am a professional singer and that's why I choose to collaborate with those gifted with a good voice like Pussy in 'Vacation'.
