It’s been a while! Following his career breakthrough in Swedish Idol, the hits he scored as a member of duo Rebound, and a solo career that spawned some absolute tunes (the search bar to your right holds a whole manner of treats), Rabih Jaber returns today with the video for his new single ‘Habibi Hayati’.
What’s it like? A Middle Eastern flavoured pop banger. Title aside, the whole song is actually performed in English. We’re a sucker for this kind of sound, and it’s great to hear the half Swedish half Lebanese Rabih Jaber explore the other sonic side of his roots.
What’s he been up to since we last heard from him? WELL. He has recently gone and competed in The Voice of the Middle East. He reached the final – a final which earned a massive 150 million TV viewers.
