Download: Elissa 2014 Album @elissakh #HaletHob البوم اليسا - حالة حب

She does not make bad songs, only hits, and thanks to her loyal fans, they always come to her defense no mater what. Their queen or romance is Elissa and she knows how dear she is to them, so she keeps the hits coming.

Elissa sticks to the safe formula that has always worked for her, catchy tunes to girlish sensual grade lyrics, performed into a dreamy voice. She followed this style ever since she shot to fame. Loud, dance music, that makes you jump, then her broken spirit voice starts telling a story. The story tends to be the good girl that did everything right, she loved right, but she got cheated. A story she told many times. But she always makes it sound fresh and worthy of your attention.

She is romantic in music, but not in her life--at leas in the part we know of. Here, she gave 14 tracks that range in styles, all are actually good. I am sort of have grown past her charm, but I still like to follow her music. She is an A list artist whom Rotana holds in high regards. She does works hard, and she makes good choices--at least in songs and music. I cannot wait to listen to each of the tracks once Ramadan ends...

I do not get the album cover art, I think Elissa is dealing with the issue of aging, the bunny ears tell she she still sees her self as a sex symbol--many keep talking about her loveless life. But perhaps she is happy and has all she needs in her big bank account.
P.S. May lord have mercy on Gaza and its people.

Watch The Best (And Funkiest) Party Music Video @SandySandystar

This is a girl who like to make music, not a woman yet. She does pop songs as if any teen would approach any topic, lots of details about seemingly  unimportant things. Her fans love her and enjoy seeing her live singing in nearby malls or in a beach party. This is why she gets to make an album every year and a half or so. This time, this seems like a teen album, she likes to have fun and not to be heartbroken.

Sandy sells this image to teens very well--even thought she must be at leaser in her mid 20s.  11 tracks, even a song in English titled Lady Killer--hope this is not a literal song. Here, she does something which is sing for her fans, and gives them what they like, she does lots of pop songs or tries to do it in American style. The lead song is pretty cool to dance to, I love he beat.

She filmed his join somewhere here in the States. It feels like Selena Gomez should pop in the screen. Unsure about the panda, but Egypt seems to be obsessed with them at the moment. The song about Sandy thinking she is hot, cute and spunky....she pulls it off, this is a song that feels like the cast of glee gave her a hand. I like the donuts joke and the cop. This is funky and coll attempt, it works for Sandy, not many can replicate this. She is a neutrally and the album glows happiness. Teen love stories are funny to grownups, but for them they are the real deal.

Massive Attack make Gaza statement using headline stage at Longitude Festival

Award-winning band and veteran political activists Massive Attack used their headline slot at Longitude Festival this weekend to highlight their solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza.

As the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) continues to bombard Gaza with air strikes while Hamas fires rockets into Israel, Massive Attack used its position to show its long-time support of Palestinian freedom.

A lit-up message behind the performers said: “Gaza has been ocupied [sic] or under restrictions since 1948.”
The group also displayed the number of lives lost in Gaza, the Irish Mirror reports, during a performance of ‘Unfinished Sympathy,’ which was met with huge applause from the crowd.
