Signed to Universal, Middle East pop star Hadi is back with his third single this summer, a sun-drenched slice of pop music that we’re currently loving. Taking inspiration from a diverse range of pop stars including Coldplay and Ed Sheeran, the single came together in just 30 minutes and is a great example for other artists in the region. The song is about ‘allowing hurt that’s lurking deep to come out so that it can be healed, for it to make space for lighter things to take its place,’ says Hadi. ‘I kept repeating the line as I was driving, and the melody started to flow. I pulled out my notebook and wrote down both of the verses. The recording of the instruments, vocals, and preliminary production all came together within 30 mins. It’s so moving when a song is just so eager to be written, it almost feels like it is falling out of you.’

Playlisted by MTV and with over quarter of a million YouTube streams already, ‘Medicine’ looks like further cementing Hadi’s reputation as one of the Middle East’s brightest pop stars. Hadi ‘Medicine’ is released on July 27 via Universal MENA
