I like Naji Osta, Roa likes Naji Osta, Rafat likes Naji Osta--I guess my family like his style of music and his choices of songs. He is a hip Lebanese pop star who releases a new song about every three months. His voice is sweet without being too much so, he is loud, but not something that can be annoying. He is a one man team, and a guy who spends most of his time working on his music, and not on being a celebrity. He does have the right balance in music, in life and in everything in between.
His new single finds a really creative way to tell someone that they are special..... "I now agree that my life begins, I have the right to reach a 100 years with you" In Arabic it makes so much more sense. He is a guy who is young, charming and energizing....He is the romantic sound that sticks around...really the best of Lebanese pop is what Naji releases. He always incorporates folkloric local beat, but the music is so much more than being a local favorite.
His style of songs begin slow, then pick up and run really fast through a song. His voice works well for Lebanese Mawal I do not know how he makes it work, but he does and he seems to have many friends in the biz. Danny Helu mixed and produced, Mounir Bou Assaf composed and we all win. It makes sense why he is one of the busiest young artists who are as popular outside Lebanon as inside her.
I really enjoy his songs and wish to see him in a live concert one day, he knows how to fire up a party and keep the surprises and hits coming.
