Issam Alnajjar New Single Mn Gheirik Enti

After unprecedented worldwide success on his debut single Hadal Ahbek, breakout Jordanian pop phenomenon Issam Alnajjar releases his new single Mn Gheirik Enti today via Universal Arabic Music.

Mn Gheirik Enti, which translates to “without you” in English, is a catchy and energetic love song about your partner accepting you for who you are, flaws and all. Issam smoothly sings over bouncy acoustic guitar, percussion, and hand claps, as the tempo picks up in the chorus, and he exclaims, “I keep asking myself what’s missing? How did you approve of me with all my flaws? Me, whose life is upside down. Without you, without you.” The video shows Issam’s growth as an artist and songwriter, as he takes center stage and proclaims his love.

On the inspiration behind the song, Issam says, “This song means so much to me. I wrote it from a personal experience I had. Also, it’s another chapter of my journey from Hadal Ahbek. I am very proud of it, and I hope you all enjoy my hard work behind it.”

Mn Gheirik Enti is the follow-up single to Issam’s global viral hit Hadal Ahbek, released earlier this year. Over the course of a few months, his debut single has amassed over 41 million Spotify streams and 3 billion sound views on TikTok, and the official video has garnered 11 million views on YouTube. The live performance video also has over 80 million views and counting. Earlier this spring, Issam teamed up with Loud Luxury and Ali Gatie on their collaboration Turning Me Up (Hadal Ahbek), which has 14 million-plus Spotify streams to date. The song continues to climb the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart and Billboard Canada CHR/Top 40 Chart, currently sitting at #27 and #11, respectively. Not to mention, last month, he joined forces with R3HAB for Hadal Ahbek (R3HAB Club Remix).

The 17-year-old singer, songwriter, and guitarist has made history with Hadal Ahbek, as it is the first Arabic song to explode worldwide as a viral #1 hit. Upon release, the track peaked at #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral 50 Charts and Shazam’s Top 200 Global Chart, as well as reached Top 20 spots on Apple Music’s Global Hits and Viral Hits Playlists. On the international stage, it hit #1 on Spotify’s Viral Chart in 25 local markets, including UK, Canada, Germany, France, and Mexico, and #1 on Shazam’s Top 200 Chart in 24 local markets. The irresistible bop has arrived as a cross-continental anthem and cements Issam Alnajjar as an international artist to watch in 2021. 

ABOUT ISSAM ALNAJJAR

Issam Alnajjar is leading the way for a new generation of artists from the Middle East and North Africa to take over the global music scene. A 17-year-old musician from Amman, Jordan, he had been creating music for a couple of years, studying the songwriting of pop artists like Shawn Mendes and Ed Sheeran and admiring the creativity of iconic artists like Queen and The Weeknd, when he got some inspiration for his breakout hit Hadal Ahbek. After dropping a preview video for the song on Instagram, anticipation from his fans grew larger and larger. By the time he finally released Hadal Ahbek, with Issam’s silky voice and infectious lyrics and melody, the popularity of it exceeded his expectations. Issam says he had only expected 10k views total for his song. That was shattered in one day, and eventually it grew to 100k views a week. And on TikTok, the song only grew bigger and now sits atop dozens of music charts on Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer. For any artist to have a top song is an accomplishment. But what makes Issam’s feat more incredible is that he achieved this with a song sung in Arabic.
