Adding to a number of earlier hits, Ahmed Saad is going viral on various listening platforms like YouTube and Anghami for the weekend release of Khelset Hayaty, his composition of Mohamed Fathy's lyrics arranged by Mohamed Atef El-Helw.

Meanwhile, last week’s release of Betewhasheny – written and composed by by Haitham Nabil and also arranged by El-Helw – is keeping Saad among the country's most-listened singers across different platforms. 

The two hits add to the success of the show’s eponymous main theme song, Touba, which also features Amr Saad. Touba is composed by Saad and Takki and written by famous poet Hesham El-Gakh.

Internationally, Ahmed Saad went viral for last year's collaboration with Mahraganat stars 3enba and Double Zuksh in El-Melouk ("The Kings"). El-Melouk made it to BillBoards after Egyptian director Mohamed Diab picked it for the closing credits of the second episode of Marvel’s series Moon Knight.

Ahmed Saad, who released Islamic ode Taleb Rahmetak earlier in Ramadan, is also still trending for earlier smash hits Aliky Eyoun and Sayrena Ya Donia.

The 40-year-old pop and Shaabi singer, composer and actor has been among the most famous artists in the Arab World in recent years for multiple collaborations and successive hits.

Touba is directed by Ahmed Saleh and written by Ahmed Helba and Mohamed Fawzy. It stars Maged El-Masry, Diab, Saba Mubarak, and Marwa El-Azaly.

The TV series is is currently airing on MBC and is available for streaming on Shahid VIP.
