Arabic music artists

I am looking for some Arabic music to listen to as part of Arab culture immersion. Who are the mainstream pop stars the ones closest to the pops star of the west? Other genres? I would love Arabic media suggestions for news music thanks!

You are in for a treat. Once you dive in to Arabic the wealth of music, art, science, wisdom will flood upon you.

I’ll post links tomorrow from work

edit: ok I am going to post a couple links today...

1.) Here is a full concert of one of my favorite artists/activists سعاد ماسِ - Souad Massi.

The name looks familiar. I can't seem to find many modern Arab songs on the music streaming service I use, just older music (which is nice but I'm looking for Pop too - & yes I understand that pop would have different standards in the Arabic world lol). I'll check him out! Thanks!

If you are a fan of "The Voice", a singing competition, here is the Arabic Voice it's great because they cover a lot of popular songs including some English tunes.

there's the arabic lyrics for the song

“و لمَّا تَلاقينا على ســـــــفحِ رامَةٍ ** وجدتُ بـنان الـــــــعامريَّةِ أحــمرا

فقلتُ خضبتِ الكفَّ على فراقنا؟! ** قالت : معاذ الله , ذلك ما جرى

ولكنَّنِــــــي لـــــــما وجدتُكَ راحلاً ** بكيتُ دماً حتى بللــت به الـثرى

مسحت بأطراف البنانِ مدامعي ** فصار خضاباً في اليدين كــما ترى”
