Warner Recorded Music has officially announced the signing of Saudi superstar Dalia Mubarak, who has been labeled as “the voice of the young Saudi generation”, according to an official press release.
The label described her as one of “the most influential female superstars in the Middle East”, and believes that she blends contemporary music genres, such as R&B, with traditional Khaleeji music from the Gulf region.
Warner says that Mubarak became “instantly famous” in the Arab Gulf with the release of her debut single, Turn the Table, in 2014, and her debut album, Min Al Akher, achieved significant success in Saudi Arabia and across the region.
Mubarak’s singles have included Areen Al Ashq, Beni O Bink, Damet Ghala, Fariq An Alnass Khedni, Lail EL Mefarag, Qedar Qedar, Takhayel and Ymkin.
“I’m delighted to be signing a recording deal with Warner Music” Mubarak said, per the release.
“It’s got the global footprint, cultural connections and marketing expertise I need to help me take my music to even more fans around the world. I’ve already got some exciting projects lined up and I can’t wait to share the details with you.”
“The speed with which the Saudi music scene is advancing is amazing, and Dalia has been a trailblazer for change.
“She symbolises a new generation of female artists from the country who are rewriting the rules and winning fans across the region and beyond. We’re excited to be supporting the next stage of her international career.”
