Saleh was born in 1960 in Cairo's Shobra district. He started his musical career directly after he graduated from Cairo University.

He released his first song, entitled “Akeed” (Sure), in the 1980s.

He performed his song “Ya Greed el-Nakhl el-Aly” (O High Palm Leaves) in front of former Egyptian President Hosny Mubarak in the mid-1980s, and the song achieved booming success, placing Saleh among the top singers at that time.

Throughout his career that extended for more than 30 years, Saleh has been famous for performing the songs of the most successful movies such as "Habiby Ya Ashek" in “Short w Fanla w Cap” (Shorts, a T-shirt and a Hat) movie, "El Nour Makano Fel Qoloob" (Light Belongs to the Hearts) from “Amir el Zalam” (The Prince of Darkness) movie, and “La Hatakhod Eih” (What Will You Gain?) from the movie "Mafia", among others.
