CAIRO – 28 July 2018: The renowned Moroccan singer Samira Said posted on her official Instagram account the poster of her upcoming album “Superman”.

Said appeared on the poster with a bold new look which indicated that the album will contain a lot of surprises to the Moroccan star’s fans. “Superman soon,” commented Said under the poster.

Said cooperated with a number of prominent poets and composers in this album such as composer Belal Serour, poet Shady Nour , and distrbutor Hany Yachoub among others.

Saeed was born in Rabat, Morocco, in 1958; she started singing when she was only nine years old. She was discovered when she participated in “Mawaheb”, the famous Moroccan talent show, broadcasted at the time on the Royal Moroccan TV network.

Although she has recorded some songs in Moroccan, such as "Kifash Tlakina" (How We Met), "Fayetli Sheftek Shi Marra" (I've Seen You Once), "Sarkouh" (They Stole Him), and "Al Behhara" (The Sailors), most of her songs are in the Egyptian dialect such as "Mahaslesh Haga" (Nothing Happened), "Ayza Aeesh" (I Want to Live) and "Hawa Hawa" (Air Air), among others.

Said’s songs reflect various topics that discuss women's issues. She has a wide fan-base from different ages and from all over the MENA region. Said’s musical repertoire includes about 46 music albums, and more than 500 songs.

She received praise from the late great Egyptian singer Abdel Halim Hafez, and composer Baligh Hamdi. She's been living in Egypt for years. Said has collaborated with many international artists; she successfully reintroduced, and evolved the Arab music scene in the early 2000s when she collaborated with Cheb Mami in “Youm Wara Youm” (Day After Day) which was considered a new wave in music back then.

Said was the first singer from the MENA region to be chosen by the international Eurovision Song Contest to perform her song “Bitaqat Hub” (Love Card). Samira won many international awards, including the World Music Award, and the BBC Music Award.
