El Sawareekh drop long awaited Hit “El Bent Theb”

Following the announcement earlier this year of Sony Music Entertainment Middle East’s catalogue and multi-single deal with Egyptian Mahraganat label 100 Copies, the latest smash from El Sawareekh has landed titled “El Bent Theb”
The Egyptian Sensations – Dokdok & Bassem Fanky – are best known for their hit “Laa Laa” back in 201; the summer hit of 2018 throughout the Arab world. The record has surpassed 100 millions streams worldwide.

The new hit release – El Bent Theb (Arabic) – which means “The Girl Loves” in English, is the Duo’s first release under the Sony Music banner and it is set to be another summer smash. The single is an energetic, upbeat trap infused Egyptian shaabi record, which blends Basem’s catchy lyrics and vocals with Fanky’s unique style.

The song talks about the never-ending dilemma of “What Women Want”. DokDok’s lyrics do this in a positive way, speaking directly to Egyptian men and how they need to treat women in all aspects of their lives, delivered with catchy and whimsical lines. It is a song that will grow and grow this year.    

“El Bent Theb” is one of many hits to come as part of the Sony Music’s Mahraganat release plan. With a packed schedule throughout the summer, look out for more announcements in the coming weeks as Sony Music and 100 Copies continue to build the new stars of the Egyptian Mahraganat scene. Speaking on the release, Mike Fairburn, General Manager of Sony Music Entertainment Middle East commented, ‘Sawareekh are sensational, this song is a hit with our partners 100 Copies we are excited to be part of the Mahraganat movement. It is a diverse genre, reflects many aspects of Egyptian youth and we are already seeing global interest on this rapidly growing genre. The song is a smash, and we are looking forward to working with these brilliant talents on more music this summer’

  • Label announces multi-year deal with respected Mahraganat label 100 Copies

Wednesday March 18th, 2020: Sony Music Entertainment Middle East today dropped Kolo Festak with Mahraganat star Hamo Bika featuring Filo & Abo El Shouq. The smash record is the latest from one of the biggest stars of the Egyptian genre and heralds the announcement of Sony’s multi-year deal with 100 Copies. This is the first of many releases between the two labels. The historic multi-year partnership signed between the two labels, will see collaborations with a host of leading Mahraganat talents to release new music through 2019 and 2020. Sony Music will also represent the 100 Copies catalogue world-wide and together collaborate on opportunities around these genre defining releases of the past 10 years.

Kolo Festek by Hamo Bika feat. Filo & Abo El Shouq just DROPPED!

The name 100 Copies comes from the founder and label’s inspiration Mahmoud Refat, only putting out 100 CD’s of each underground release he put out. Since those early days, Mahmoud has established an unrivalled reputation in Cairo and the whole region for stand out young artists, and brilliant music.

Refat remains a tireless advocate of the music, quick to compare the mahraganat artists he works with to older Egyptian artists like the beloved singer Oum Kalthoum. “Oum Kalthoum is someone who I have a lot of respect [for], we all do. But the music of the people is happening from mahraganat,” he says. “The fashion, the lyrics, the words! The language! The development of the language—the street language. The signs. The body language. The choreography. The attitude. The culture. The way you walk from here to there. The way you set up a party. The way you build a house. This is all related to mahraganat.”

Together with our friends at Delta Sound, Sony Music India revived the Egyptian 90s Hit Habibi Dah – Nari Narin by Hicham Abbas, as the lead song for their incredible Soundtrack to Bollywood Movie Made in China

Featuring music by Sachin-Jigar and lyrics by VAYU, much like the mystery tiger soup it advertises, The Naari Naari Song has a number of secret ingredients that make it flavourful and potent and quite tasty, really! We can reveal two, though: the singers Vishal Dadlani and Jonita Gandhi.

The video for the single features lead pair Rajkummar and Mouni. With Rajkummar’s character dreaming about the ‘secret ingredient’ in his world-famous ‘tiger soup’.

Directed by Mikhil Musale and produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, the story of the film revolves around an unconventional entrepreneurial journey of a 35-year-old Gujarati middle-class man.

The song is now available on Sony Music India’s YouTube channel and across all streaming platforms.
