Recording career
1992–95: Debut and initial success
Inspired by her appearance on Studio El Fan in 1988 (singing competition), Nawal became a professional singer in 1991. After a visit to her native city of Beirut, she released her debut album, "Wehyati Andak" in 1992.
With that success she released a string of hit albums such as "Ayza El Radd" and "Balaee Fi Zamany". The video, "Wala Behimini", from the album "Balaee Fi Zamany", secured her stardom with her image being broadcast on several billboards and in magazines such as the Arabic language's version of Elle.
1996–2002: Stardom and controversy
In 1996 Nawal released one of her most successful albums to date, named "Habeit Ya Leil". The album spawned three hit singles with "Habeit Ya Leil", "Noss El Alb", and "Ghareeb El Ray". In 1998, Nawal Al-Zoghbi released her album and single, "Mandam aleik". Nawal's next album Maloum was released in 1999. Her next two releases "El Layali" (2000) and "Tool Omri" (2001) were both launched within a year of each other, and provided Nawal with continued success, reclaiming her spot in Arabic pop. In 2002, she worked with controversial music video director Sherif Sabri to create a new image for her song "Elli Tmaneito".
Nawal was angry with Sherif, so she stopped dealing with him. Teasers were aired on Egyptian satellite channel, Dream TV. After the full broadcast, the album received lukewarm reviews. Al Zoghbi blames its failure on her decision to not promote the album. Nevertheless, the album of the same name spawned two successful singles, 'Elli Tmaneito' and 'Byilba'lak'.
After a two-year break, her next album, "Eineik Kaddabeen", was released in the summer of 2004 at a lavish album-launch party in Cairo Inn. This album was accompanied by two singles: "Eineik Kaddabeen" and "Bi'einek". Immediately after promoting that album, Nawal then began work on "Yama Alou". She released the first single, "Rouhi Ya Rouhi", in August 2005. Her first live performance of "Rohi Ya Rohi" was at a concert she held at the Hammersmith Apollo, in London. The next single released from Yama Alou was "Shou Akhbarak" in February 2006.
As part of the promotion for her 11th album, "Yama Alou", her production company, Alam elPhan, began previewing short clips from some of the upcoming albums songs on a telephone line that listeners could call. Shortly after, an advertisement campaign was launched. It began with a television advert showing the camera moving from a woman's boots upwards, but stopping before her face was revealed, the screen went dark and the word soon appeared on the screen.[citation needed] A week or so later, the next advertisement followed a similar format to the previous one, however, in this new advert, the face of the woman was revealed and the figure was Nawal herself. After this, the next advert showed clips of Nawal from the album's promotional photo shoot while playing small clips of the songs "Yama Alou", "Aghla el Habbayib", "El Assi", "Habaytak" and "Shou Akhbarak".[citation needed]
The television campaign was accompanied by large billboards and posters of Nawal in Egypt and Lebanon. The music video for Yama Alou, began to air at the beginning of July 2006, roughly a week before the album's release date. The music video was aired on the Mazzika and Zoom music channels across the Middle East and the song was played exclusively on the Sawt el Ghad radio station in Lebanon as well as on Nagoum FM in Egypt.
Yama Alou was intended to be released throughout the Middle East on 17 July 2006, however, due to the Israeli attacks on Lebanon, its release was postponed. It was then released on 26 July 2006 in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. In the following weeks, the album was made available in other countries around the Middle East and was finally released in Lebanon on 14 September 2006, once the war was over.
