Moroccan singer-songwriter Saad Lamjarred surprised his fans Monday evening with an Islamic song in honor of the month of Ramadan.
Lamjarred shared a new song titled Ya Allah on YouTube.
On a twitter post, the artist said the song was composed and written by musician Salah Kurdi and produced by Moroccan Reggada singer Jalal el-Hamdaoui.
The song accumulated more than one million views on YouTube within the first 12 hours. Many fans have praised the song’s lyrics and simple yet beautiful melody in the comment section.
Lamjarred was criticized by some who called him out for exploiting religion in order to fix his image after it’s been tarnished with rape charges that he faces in France.
