Imad’s New Single Tells a Tale of Resilience Following Beirut Explosion of 2020: Listen –

For 21-year-old Imad, his latest single, “Makan” (with Samia), goes far beyond your basic melodic techno track. 

Instead, the hauntingly atmospheric song was rewritten by the Lebanese and Nigerian artist after the devastating explosion in Beirut last August. It translates to “place” in Arabic.

“That was a turning point for a lot of people in the country, as the general economic, social and quality of life in Lebanon had been rapidly declining,” said Imad, who splits his time between Beirut and London, in a press release. “[Samia and I] dedicated it to the relationship a lot of us have with Lebanon.”
