Al Zoghbi spent her own money to make the video. Nawal left Rotana in October 2009, and signed on with Melody who will produce her next album, that was due out for release in the summer of 2010.

News

Nawal El Zoghbi announced to Aljadeed TV that she blames the Lebanese festivals' (Byblos, Beyt El Din, & Baalbeck) committee for having foreign artists instead of Lebanese artists to run them, where as the Lebanese stars are being respected more and running more Arab shows/festivals where they feel more respected and appreciated.

في تصريح خاص ، أكدت النجمة نوال الزغبي أنها تلوم وتعتب على المهرجانات اللبنانية أمثال مهرجانات بعلبك وبيت الدين وبيبلوس، وذلك لأن اللجان المنظمة تستبعد الفنانين اللبنانيين وتركّز على الفنانين الأجانب، في وقت يقف نجوم لبنان على مسارح المهرجانات العربية لأنهم يقدرونهم كما يجب.
