Omar Kamal – in a telephone conversation with the “Cairo Today” program – expressed his happiness in cooperating with Sumaya al-Khashab in the clip, so that the presenter of the program, Edward, joked with him about the possibility of his association and marriage to her, to which Omar Kamal replied with a laugh: “I wish, by God.”
Omar Kamal said: “Sumaya al-Khashab is a beautiful artist, but I only have a working relationship with her, and I brought with her a new song that will be released during the coming period.
He noted that the idea of the song “Promise You” came to him when he met Sumaya on one of the occasions and they talked together, and he offered her to share one of the festival songs with him: “I told her, what do you think, do something in our silence… and she agreed.”
Omar Kamal indicated that he did not intend to present a duet with Sumaya al-Khashab at the same time as Hassan Shakoush’s release of his “duet” song with Yasmine Rais, which is titled “My Love”, stressing that the whole issue came by chance, as he is working on the song with Somaya about 4 months ago, and her filming was greatly disrupted due to the actress’s associations and travels outside Egypt to shoot television programs.
The lyrics of the song say at the beginning: “I promise you my life one day, my love, I will not betray you, I will leave you, I will stay and protect you with the love of your name, all your madness. “.
The song is the first collaboration between Omar Kamal and Sumaya al-Khashab, and Sumayas entry gateway to the world of popular festival songs, similar to her colleague, artist Yasmine Rais, who participated with festival singer Hassan Shakoush in the song “Habibi”, which was recently released.
It is noteworthy that the artist Sumaya Al-Khashab participated in the Ramadan race 2021, in the series “Musa”, starring the star Mohamed Ramadan, and a number of art stars participated in it, including Heba Magdy and Sayed Ragab, directed by Mohamed Salama.
