The song and its video clip dominated the Arabian charts. The wide success of Naghmet Hob fueled a concert tour and a number of awards for Karam, including a prize from the Lebanese Broadcasting Association for the Best Artist of Karam had been thrust to the top of the Arabic music scene in less than a year, and was now constantly in the public eye.
In , Najwa started work on her second Rotana album, her fifth release in total. It was titled Ma Bassmahlak and closely followed the traditional style of Naghmet Hob. The main difference was the lyrical and vocal nature of the tracks which had more depth. With five albums under her belt, the latter two of which witnessed ground breaking success, Najwa was becoming a familiar face in the Arabic music industry.
Following the release of Hazi Helo, Najwa set off on a large-scale world concert tour, which would take in many Arab states, parts of Europe, and America. She found a number of fans in the U. To honour her success in the U.
After the sell-out world tour, Najwa returned to Lebanon with a fresh mind and new song ideas. And so work began on her next studio album - Ma Hada La Hada. The tracks on the album were quite different from those of Najwa's previous albums, with a more contemporary sound. For example the song "El Helw" was heavily influenced by foreign beats and synthesised melodies. Three months prior to the album's official release, the song El Tahady was distributed to the Arabic radio stations.
By the time of the album's release, the song's popularity had dwindled, and Ma Hada La Hada's relatively poor sales were attributed to this factor. However, the title track did become quite popular. It had harmonious musical arrangements which used the traditional Lebanese instrument the Qanoun, along with other traditional instruments such as the violin and the accordion. These musical stylings, along with an uplifting song topic and a powerful "mini movie" video clip made the song a huge hit.
The release, Maghroumeh, marked Karam's "official" transition from purely traditional Lebanese artist to the blend of traditional and contemporary Arabic that she is famous for today. It had poetic Arabic lyrics sung with Najwa's trademark power and authority; extensive use of Arabic instruments trumbakke, mijwiz, zamour, tabal Maghroumeh was another success from Karam. The title track, "Maghroumeh" "I Am in Love" , was shot as a video clip, and was the biggest hit off the album, hitting number one on most radio stations in the region.
The new year brought about a number of changes in Karam's career lives. Najwa's new album was set to be released in the summer, and her personal changes were showing in her new album Rouh Rouhi. It was similar to the Maghroumeh album, but had a number of tweaks in the vocal and musical styles. The musical arrangements were heavily detailed and technical, and the lyrics were more poetic than all other Karam albums.
In , Karam made her record breaking release Nedmaneh. It sold over 4 million copies worldwide, and is one of Najwa's most acclaimed albums to date. It followed on from the style of music first presented by Karam in Oyoun Qalbi, and further experimented with new styles and sounds. The song "Aaskah" "Falling in love" was an enormous hit, hitting number one all over the Middle East, and was also quite popular abroad.
It was a more playful and vibrant song than most of Karam's previous work, with a strong bass line, and a distinct oriental influence. It was quite different from any Arabic song at the time, and appealed to a wide range of audiences. To further Rotana's crediting of Karam's successes, an honouring assemble was held on Saturday, 23 June where Karam was awarded for her achievements throughout her singing career and for the huge success of Nedmaneh.
The ceremony was held at the Venesia Hotel, Beirut, Lebanon. During the night, Karam sang some of her hits old and new , and was presented with numerous medals and trophies. Karam's album, Tahamouni, was far removed from the "easy going" contemporary feel of Oyoun Qalbi and Nedmaneh, and audiences noticed.
The album was intended to get back in touch with a more youthful audience from other Arab nations, with whom had taken slight dis-interest in Karam's music from the late 90s. This was shown though songs likeTahamouni They accused me which included attempts at rapping, and Ew'a Tekoun Ze'alt I hope you're not mad at me which seemed to have a complete Western influence.
The songs had a youthful sound. Wadi had known Najwa for a while, and had been impressed with her vocal talents. The two of them decided to make a duet together, depicting the trials of a father-daughter relationship. The song was titled W Kberna We grow old together , and was an epic ballad in which both vocalists showed immense vocal range and depth.
W Kberna was a success as the lyrics were easy to relate to and it teamed two of the region's most prominent artists together. Taking this success, Najwa got back to the drawing board for a new album. Months were spent piecing together lyrics and arrangements, and by mid , the album was ready for release.
Rotana set up a large launch party in Downtown Beirut, where over fifteen thousand of Karam's fans packed the streets, waiting for Najwa to appear and sing her new material.
Saharni Charmed was exactly the kind of album that was a rebirth of the "old Najwa Karam", and took the public by surprise, as they had at this point come to expect contemporary pop from the Shams el-Ghinnieh.
The music had all the makings of distinctly Lebanese music: trumbakke solos, traditional wind instruments, lots of bass and a vibrant singing style - all features far removed from the "western" motif that most artists opted for at the time.
Not only had Karam's music changed, but she also sported a new look, which further emphasised that the album was a turn around. Saharni's success was instantaneous, even though there was a lack of video clips for the songs, the album came through on top of the charts, and produced a number of major hits, including Edhak Lil Dounya Smile to the world , and the title track Saharni He charmed me.
Najwa made a world tour to complement Saharni's success, taking in the Middle East as well as destinations such as France and the U. She also travelled to Australia, where her concert there still holds the record for largest ever recorded concert attendance for an Arabic artist. Najwa was presented with a number of awards and achievements in As the New Year came and passed, Karam began work on a new single to be included in her upcoming album.
This single would be like no other she had released before. TitledLeish Mgharrab? Why are you living abroad? Coupled with this harrowing topic, was a revolutionary new music video directed by Sa'aed el-Marouk , which would transform modern day Beirut into a bleak and harsh wasteland in The original video - which also contained scenes of citizens protesting against the Lebanese government - was banned from being aired by the Lebanese Parliament.
When the clip was edited slightly, it was finally allowed to go to air, along with its song. It hit home with many people, especially those living abroad in countries like Australia and the U. It also sent a direct message to Lebanese politicians, telling them to act on their words.
After a few months, Najwa had completed the rest of her new album, Shu Mghaira..!. Like Saharni, it was distinctly Lebanese, but it was more of a modern adaptation, with a reflective and sad overtone.
Najwa continued her many live appearances to promote the album, and a notable event for was her sell-out concert in Carthage, Tunisia where she performed to thousands of enthusiastic fans.
The tracks Bi Hawak In your love and Shu Mghaira How you've changed were shot in an expensive duel video clip which was riddled with special effects. It remained at the number 1 position for 6 weeks on the Rotana Top 20 Chart. The two songs were the most popular from the album, and Najwa obtained the as "Female Artist of the Year" from MusicanaNet. In the second quarter of , Karam released a new single and video clip called Shu Jani. Shu Jani was a contemporary pop song, with the use of traditional Lebanese instruments.
The video was filmed in the Faraya ski resort in Lebanon by director Sa'aed el-Marouk. It was to be on her upcoming album. The timing of the new clip was criticised in some tabloids, because it was released during the tense electoral season in Lebanon, and the so-called Cedar Revolution Independence Intifada.
It was argued by these tabloids that it was disrespectful for Karam to release new material at such a time. Karam defended herself by putting the claim on her Saudi production company, Rotana, who she says fast tracked the release against her wishes. Even though there was some controversy surrounding Shu Jani, it fared well with the public. Due to the prolonged situation in the Lebanon region, Karam's album was postponed from originally being released in June, then July and then finally postponed until November It was a fairly big hit, hitting number one on many internet and radio charts.
In November , billboards and unipolls all over Beirut were displaying a lady's hand upon a cloudy horizon. No writing was on the posters. The advertisement had the public wondering what message the posters were relaying, and who did the mysterious hand belong to?
Soon it was generally concluded that the hand belonged to a recording artist, but there were many conflicting suggestions as to whose it was.اسمع وحمل كل اغاني البوم ندمانه لنجوى كرم على نجومى.
