Top 10 Best Arab Singers

The Top Ten
1 Amr Diab (El-Hadaba) Amr Abd El-Basset Abd El-Azeez Diab is an Egyptian pop singer and songwriter. He is a multi-award-winning pop singer-songwriter, regarded as the best selling Middle Eastern artist of all time. Furthermore, he has created his own style which is often termed "Mediterranean Music", a blend of Western and Egyptian rhythms. By 1992, he became the first Arabic artist to start making high-tech music videos.

Absolutely the best, no doubt and no copetetion really! the quality of very hand picked lyrics and very unique music and of course performance is amazing. The only singer that for over 30 years has been getting better and better. The only arabic singer that is very well known amongst non arabic communities in the US, Europe and South America. Unique thing about him also is that all his album songs are hits, unlike all arab singers where they "could" have a hit song then the rest of the album is pretty much trash. One too much to add but one last thing he is the richest, most popular, and the most with World Music Awards (he has a Guinness world record in that even) God bless his work, I have been living in the US for over 15 years and even amongst the US singers I never found anyone as brilliant and ever hard working on his career.

Amr Diab is a phenomena. He is a super Magnet. definitely, the leader of music industry in Egypt and the middle east because every new trend in music he sings it first then all other singers will follow. He has the best voice, the best looks, very athletic and top when it comes to fashion and music videos. not only he has the best voice and performance, he is very smart when it comes to selecting his music and words...I love this guy. God bless him. No other singer comes close to him number two is definitely very far down the charts. He is top singer since mid 80's.

The best so far. No one can beat his talent. One day he will be legend in a music industry. The music is amazing and mix with a lot of genre, Refreshing, sometimes energetic, mostly romantic.. You can feel his aura when you hear his song

First time I heard I feel in love with voice and music. I listen everyday. Very Romantic and keeps my love alive. I don't understand the language but I love it and always will. Amr Diab is amazing.

2 Sherine Sherine Ahmed Abdel Wahhab, mononymously known as Sherine, is an Egyptian singer and actress. Sherine was born in 1980 in Cairo, Egypt. She is one of the four coaches in the the Arabic version of The Voice. Nicknamed the Queen of feelings, she serves as one of the jury members.

I discovered her in 2009 on Rotana Clip. It was love at first sight, both as a singer and as woman. She entered in my heart for ever. I need her songs every day. I would marry her immediately. She has so nice daughters.
I try to go to her concerts everywhere. I feel so much love for her. She ist the one and only, the best. Herbert Schweizer from Lausanne, Switzerland

Her voice touches somewhere deep in your heart. The first time I heard her, I was 18 (now I'm 25) my face turned red and I felt her mere singing an absolute flattery that you sometimes feel what she says is meant to be for you; and just you!

Truly an artist!

Sherien is a legend! You may find some voices that are similar to the voices of the great singers but SHERIEN! No one is compared to here voice or her feeling.. Her songs and music are touchy.. She isn't singing with her voice she is singing with her heart.. God bless her

I really like her songs and her songs always popular in Pakistan and her voice is superb... May ALLAH blessed her with succeed.

The Contenders
11 Fairuz

It will be a century from now before any singer can come close to what Fairuz offered lebanon and the arab world.
She is unique as she offer a song diversity that can follow us form the early morning hours till very late in night.
Her songs are used for celebration, birth, religious, national, traditional, theatric,... Etc

I am not aware of any other singer have that diversity in style and made such a success...

Great voice, traditional and modern songs (for the era in which she sang). Anyone interested in understanding or studying music from the Eastern mediterranean should spend some time listening to Fairouz.

Fairuz songs is just different.. Unique.. Amazing.. Stories about lebanon his traditions abd its local customs.. None in all the arab world sings as her nor their words can comeptite her.. Her music is deeply eastern sing for every one respectfull that's why every one respect her...

I don't understand how there is any question on who's the best when her music is played literally every morning for an hour on radio stations. Literally every day.

12 Carole Samaha

That woman have so beautiful sound! I'am Bulgarian and listening arabic music from 10 maybe more years, but Carole is a magnificent singer ever! So strong and so hight voice! In 2012 when I listen to her cappella song Zay El Assal I was prove my suspected she is number one! I fell in love for the first time in her voice from the song Ghali Alay. Except magnificent voice that she have that woman is always irresistible! Kisses from Buglaria!

Even if you can see that Carole samah is not beautiful but still I consider Carole Samah a number 1 singer among all Arab female singer. She has very sort voice which make me feel crazy whenever I listen to her songs like ( ragalak, yamaly ya) So that is why I strongly voted for her

13 Jannat Jannat Mahid, known by her stage name Jannat, is one of the youngest female Arab artists to have graced the Middle East music scene.

She is my love, when you listen their songs we feel love even you are not love

Najwa, widely known for her vocal powerhouse talents, gained an international audience for her distinct blend of traditional Lebanese music and contemporary sounds, and contributed to the spread of the Lebanese dialect in Arabic Music.

Please vote for her!

Her songs are great

15 Abdel Halim Hafez Abdel Halim Ali Shabana, commonly known as Abdel Halim Hafez, is among the most popular Egyptian and Arab singers.

If Halim is not the best Arab singer of all times then who is?! Surley Amr Diab is the King of this generation but Halim is the undisputed all time best Arab singer of all time and that can never change!

Very simply the best singer. His voice, personality, patriotism. Diab doesn't compare to the nightingale!

The best miracle Egypt produced.

How can he be forgotten!

16 Nancy Ajram Nancy Ajram is a Lebanese singer, world music awards winner for 3 times in 2008, 2011 and 2014 as best selling middle eastern artist, and multi-platinum recording artist.

Nancy is for sure the prettiest and the best singer in arab world. She is so successful in all over the world, even here in Brazil, we love her a lot. All her songs are amazing and she is the best in everything she does. She is too cute with her fans and always does original things. There is no way to be better than her. She is world's music queen!

I really love her voice. She is the most success and beautiful singer around the world. I always listen her songs. Especially Enta eih, heart touching song, actually I do not know Arabic song and I just realize that this song is romantic and tragedy.
Wish you prosperous life without any pain dear Nancy.
I wish that one day I can success to met you dear.

She is a very good singer and she always choose good songs in her album and I think all people in Arabian countries know her young, teenagers, and the couples, because her song every time is very deffrient than before. And she has made a lot of albums for the children. I think she must be in top 1

One of the best Arabic singer I have ever come across. There are various songs of Nancy that are far more better any other singer. Her songs and her voice has me one of her biggest fan ever!

17 Warda Al-Jazairia

18 Mohamed Fouad

The Voice of the old days. When I recall my childhood, it's nothing without him. Really he represents the pure nature of Egypt.

He is the best singer since 1985. He represented types of music. In 80s represented the quick Egyption beat. In 90s he made the hard performing arabic songs. He is more than 30 years singing. He is one of the best singers who acted. He made the movie ismailiah rayehgay which changed the path of arabic cinema. He posses a very nice voice with pure feelings

The voice of Egypt.He disappears for long time but when he comes back, he becomes stronger than before no one can do like him.

The best voice in middle east the only who can fight with Amr diab...

19 Angham
20 Kadim Al Sahir

In the east in the west Kaiser is the best. He and his voice make me fly anywhere I want to fly his voice gives me a very beautiful sensation that I never can fell it without his voice and his songs. He sings in a different way. No one can sing like him but him. He could and can enter any heart by his voice. He is truly unattainable. He is rightly kaiser because he reigns our hearts god bless him

He is the best singer in the middle east in my opinion, I listen to all kind of English and arabic music, and in my opinion he is the best singer in the whole world, I love his voice, personality and music. I attended his concert at Westminster central hall on the 17th of august, and it was the best night in my whole life, cannot wait till I see him again,
Hope he comes to london more often,
Love you kathem

Kathim alsaher is the best arabic singer. He has been likened to the great singers of the mid-twentieth century for his live performances. He performs with an orchestra of twenty to thirty musicians on Arabic percussion, oud, qanun, nay, and a full complement of strings (violin, cello, and bass). And most importantly of course he has a very great voice. With my respets to you the "Caesar of arabic song".

Mr. Al Sahir blends classical Arabic music and poetry with contemporary subject in the most refined way. Love his calm unpretentious demeanor. The most respectful and deserving of respect of any Arab artist period.

Ragheb Is and always has been number one singer in the arabic world, he is smart, innovative, he knows what to choose and what suits him, and he proved through out his 30 years of success that since day one he was a super star and since his first song which we all remember it and repeat it until know, and the future is going to show how much these songs are going to live.
Please Juries tell me who of the top singers you have chosen have more than 30 years old of success and still alive?

I am not an Arab, and I don't listen to arabic songs much, but Ragheb is someone special. He is perfect. I think there is something wrong that his not in the top 3 or at least top 10.

You hate ahlam I too

24 Samira Said

Covering genres like jazz, pop, and Tarab, she has always been able to adapt and change her style based on what was in tune of the times; however, she has never been afraid to shake it up and add her own twist.

Samira said is the best

The best of the best!

25 Majida El Roumi
