JORDANIAN ARTIST ISSAM ALNAJJAR DROPS NEW ARABIC SINGLE “MN GHEIRIK ENTI”

FOLLOW UP TO GLOBAL VIRAL HIT “HADAL AHBEK”

After unprecedented worldwide success on his debut single “Hadal Ahbek,” breakout Jordanian pop phenomenon Issam Alnajjar releases his new single “Mn Gheirik Enti” today via Universal Arabic Music—listen HERE.

“Mn Gheirik Enti,” which translates to “Without You” in English, is a catchy and energetic love song about your partner accepting you for who you are, flaws and all. Issam smoothly sings over bouncy acoustic guitar, percussion, and hand claps, as the tempo picks up in the chorus, and he exclaims, “I keep asking myself what’s missing? How did you approve of me with all my flaws? Me, whose life is upside down. Without you, without you.” The video shows Issam’s growth as an artist and songwriter, as he takes center stage and proclaims his love.

On the inspiration behind the song, Issam says, “This song means so much to me. I wrote it from a personal experience I had. Also, it’s another chapter to my journey from ‘Hadal Ahbek’. I am very proud of it, and I hope you all enjoy my hard work behind it.”

“Mn Gheirik Enti” is the follow up single to Issam’s global viral hit “Hadal Ahbek,” released earlier this year. Over the course of a few months, his debut single has amassed over 41 million Spotify streams and 3 billion sound views on TikTok, and the official video has garnered 11 million views on YouTube—watch HERE.

The live performance video also has over 80 million views and counting. Earlier this spring, Issam teamed up with Loud Luxury and Ali Gatie on their collaboration “Turning Me Up (Hadal Ahbek),” which has 14 million-plus Spotify streams to date. The song continues to climb the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart and Billboard Canada CHR/Top 40 Chart, currently sitting at #27 and #11, respectively. Not to mention, last month, he joined forces with R3HAB for “Hadal Ahbek” (R3HAB Club Remix)—listen HERE.

The 17-year-old singer, songwriter, and guitarist has made history with “Hadal Ahbek,” as it is the first Arabic song to explode worldwide as a viral #1 hit. Upon release, the track peaked at #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral 50 Charts and Shazam’s Top 200 Global Chart, as well as reached Top 20 spots on Apple Music’s Global Hits and Viral Hits Playlists. On the international stage, it hit #1 on Spotify’s Viral Chart in 25 local markets, including UK, Canada, Germany, France, and Mexico, and #1 on Shazam’s Top 200 Chart in 24 local markets. The irresistible bop has arrived as a cross-continental anthem and cements Issam Alnajjar as an international artist to watch in 2021. You can learn more about Issam’s story HERE.
