Amid tens of mahragan and trap wars of words releases topping the streaming charts this week, side by side with longtime pop stars’ romantic songs, a few singers have been trending on social media on Sunday for their new tunes celebrating Egyptian Mother’s Day.

Although it’s confirmed by decades that it is too hard to compete with Mother’s Day classics like Fayza Ahmed’s ‘Sett El-Habayeb’ or Soa’ad Hosni’s ‘Sabah El-Khier ya Mawlaty’, the flowers season always sees new good shots.

Ahram Online shares a few but fulfilling releases to mark the heartfelt occasion.

Children choir boosted the influence of long-time star Angham’s short ode ‘Waddoni A’and Ommy’, written by Aziz El-Shafei, that attracted hundreds of thousands. The same choir idea was also a key success factor of Jordanian Adham Nabulsi’s Fosha chant ‘Ommi’, arranged by Joseph Demerjian.

Hisham Abbas’ ‘Omy Ya Omy’, composed by Ehab Saleh of Hassan Helmy’s lyrics, is another try from the 90s superstar, adding to many other tunes he released for the same occasion before.

Medhat Saleh’s ‘Enti Helwa Fi Kol Wa’t’, composed and arranged by Shady Moanes, with the light lyrics of Mosata Ibrahim light, which is probably the only waltz tune for the event, has been video-clipped by crowd-contributed photos.

Sha’abi rising talent Samer El-Medany is enjoying his spot among the top releases of the season with ‘Hobbek Ya Ommy’, competing with releases from various superstars like Lebanese Nancy Ajram’s who released ‘Emmi’.

Other notable releases also include Hala Roushdy's El-Hob Elly Benna and Sherrine's Heya El-Donia.

In the middle of hits from Ruby’s return album, in the peak of Wegz and friends’ popularity battles with mahragan artists and super stars like Cairokee, Hamaki, and others releasing advertising songs, other Mother’s Day releases could have been missed.

However, this article is not meant to archive, rather it is to send well wishes to all the great mothers spreading joy around us here or sending blessings from heavens above.
