After signing with Sony Music Entertainment Middle East earlier this year, talented songwriter and fierce Urban Pop songstress Manal premieres her much anticipated debut music video, “TAJ” with the label.
“TAJ” (Crown) is a song that was originally inspired by Manal’s disheartening experience with the Arabic music industry. But the song goes further, invigorating female empowerment, individuality and challenging social expectations as the music video showcases Manal in traditionally male professions while also addressing sexual harassment.
The video is directed by Tarik Azzougarh known as Cilvaringz, an officially affiliated producer and artist with the American rap legends Wu-Tang Clan, with whom he had sold the world’s most expensive album in the history of music. “TAJ” was shot in the beautiful city of Marrakesh.
The song and video also feature the participation of a few well-established artists. The song was written by Shayfeen, considered to be one of the best Hip Hop acts in the Arab world. The male bullies are played by Wa Drari Squad members DaMost and rapper Madd. The music video also stars and features the choreography of dancer Shyvon Campbell, a prominent member of world champion dance crew 'Royal Family', better known as the dancers in Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” video.
