This collaborative tribute to the nation includes an all-star cast of Saudi vocalists; Lulwa Al Sharif, Sultan Alkhalid and Badr Hakeem, in addition to the Saudi Men and Women’s Choir. The track will also feature a music video produced by rising Saudi art filmmaker, Mohammed Hammad.
Ahmad Alammary (Baloo), Chief Creative Officer, MDLBEAST said: “This is a very proud and momentous occasion for the team at MDLBEAST. Watani 90, which translates to “Nation’s 90th”, is a tribute to our country on this milestone celebration. The track exudes a fusion of old lyrics derived from patriotic songs of the past such as “Fawq ham alsahb” and “Yaslamy ealaykum yal-Saudia”, reinterpreted with a modern sound.
The song draws on nostalgic elements that show people’s love for the land and its rich cultural history. Our mission is to create a remix of cultures and Watani 90 is a testament to that – incorporating vocalists and producers from different fields and genres, coming together to create something fresh. It’s taking Saudi heritage and history, and repackaging it into something fresh”
