From The Arabic Top 10 – July 201: “Sett El Sabaya”

July 7, 2014 3 Comments

It’s time again to see what’s hot on the Arabic Top 10 music charts! This month my pick is by the Lebanese singer, Naji Osta. I really like this one! It starts out with beautiful strains of a solo violin followed by vocals.  The music ramps up in an almost classical Arabic way then the electric beat drops. It’s cool. I can’t wait for this one to become available for download for us in the west!

“Sett El Sabaya” means “Queen of the Ladies”.  My trusty translator described this as “so romantic.” I agree.  It’s not even “tortured soul” romantic as are so many Arab songs. It’s just sweet romance.

“Sett El Sabaya” (Queen of the Ladies)

How lucky my heart that it has you in it. You, the queen of the ladies.
You are the one that mirrors have never seen such beautiful eyes like yours.
You live in each corner of my heart.

You are the one I want. You are the one that my eyes have never seen such a beauty like yours.
You are the one I want to share only my happiness with and not my sadness.

Before I met you, my heart was lie a rock, but after I saw you it came back to life.

You are not just beautiful like the moon, you are the moon itself.

I am looking for a reliable and safe online source to download the newest Arabic hits. We don’t want to wait till they hit iTunes! If you know of any, please do share the information in the comments below. Thanks!

    Hi Mahin,

    I’m really liking Yala. There is a desktop and mobile app. In the last 2 yrs, I have been able to find every current song that I’ve looked for. Plus it’s free!

    I really like this song, he’s a new singer to me.
