And the answer is right there. It's the music.
Diab realized that for the arabic music to achive stardom, he would have to merge a number of thematic music genres together. His first outtake was incorporating a latino flavor to his earlier 90 songs. That shot him up to fame, not just in his home country of Egypt, but throughout the Arab world. Though his act was reviled as being a rip off of the Gipsy Kings, none looked twice. As long as he was turning out catchy tunes, people were going for it. Add to the fact, his eloquent choice of women showcased in his video clips, I think that immortally rendered him a superstar in his own right
I didn't get to know how popular he was, until I walked into a club in Denver and was caught completely off-guard when I heard his song on the speakers and people dancing away. Diab reaized that embracing the latino flavor would work out well for him, and he was right.
With the rising Latin music coming out off the woodwork with the appearance of Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias, it is ironic that who actually tested the waters with this concept was someone with no latin in his bones. Recently, though, Diab has fallen back to imitate the very same superstars that he influenced first. If not in music, but in terms of clothing and setting and concept of his video clips.
This compilation of greatest hits, brings on a variety of work, spanning more than 4 albums. The best songs are showcased. The listener would not feel bored while going through this gemof an album. On the contrary, it just proves why Amro Diab is the Middle East's best selling modern artist.
Standout songs: kalby ekhtarak, amarain, nour el ain, el alem alla, bahibak aktar, habibi
