Ever wonder what would happen if some of the top Egyptian hit albums were translated into English? A whole lot of hilarity, that's what!
Translating Arabic to English, can often be confusing and hilarious. At the same time Egyptian singers have a history of making ridiculously cheesy album covers complete with an equally silly title. In the spirit of looking for a good laugh, we here at CairoScene decided the best way to illustrate our point would simply to present original albums with their Arabic titles removed and replaced with its English translation. Enjoy!
