Kuwaiti singer Shams has gone the distance and signed up with American distributor “Surprise” in a very surprise move by the Khaliji singer. It's the first time any Gulf or Arabic singer, male or female has ever done so!
Nobody yet knows why she left Rotana. Apparently, the company's head sent a letter to Shams informing her of the termination of her contract without giving any details, a move that Shams wouldn't comment on either.
Now, she's hooked up with the new company and a $2 million contract which will probably mean a whole new change in style and performance. She is now considered as a pioneer with this move and could pave the way for others to follow in her footsteps. This might be just what the doctor ordered for Arabic art. Most songs now sound the same and with the regular tunes and words. “Your eyes, your hair, you face” come on guys, try something new like Shams!
