Egyptian artists including Marwan Moussa, Marwan Pablo, Essam Sasa, Mohamed Hamaki, Cairokee and Ahmed Saad also feature on the list.

Cairokee’s hit album ‘Roma’ has been listened to over 6.2 million times and Bahaa Sultan’s indulgent song Taala Adalaak (Let Me Spoil You) was streamed over four million times.

The personalized experience lets users take a look back on their listening habits, highlighting trends and artists across regions.
