Husseiny, who is part Lebanese, grew up in Egypt. She didn’t start writing songs until she was 17, but her ability to convey emotions has always been her greatest strength. In fact, she was inspired by icons of the 50s and 60s such as the Beatles and the Doors.

In 2014, she released her first EP “Alter”, and it didn’t take long for people to start falling in love with her songs such as “All We’ve Got”, “Spirits of Time” and “Wild Summer Hearts” and, as the saying goes, the rest is history. Since his early days as a successful artist, Husseiny has wowed audiences with a singing style described by Rolling Stone Middle East as “slow mid-tempo burners with a pop feel”.


However, “Alter” was just the beginning. In 2020, Husseiny started releasing new singles such as “Can’t Catch an Emotion” and “You Are” and by the end of the year she became the most played artist on Arab X via Spotify. . In August 2021, she will release her debut album “Bedside” at Cairo Jazz Club. Currently, all his songs are available on platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify, Napster, YouTube, among others.


When not producing music, Husseiny also takes on acting roles on Egyptian television. For example, the 2021 TV show “Bimbo” follows a drug dealer trying to repay his debts after being robbed, with Husseiny playing the character of Jaylan.
