Back in June (2013) I had the privilege to have Sami Yusuf on the podcast. We talked about his background, his projects, Spiritique and more. During my talk with Sami, I found him to be very humble and genuine. If you haven’t heard that episode, you can listen to it here. The response to that episode was wonderful. This goes to show how dedicated Sami Yusuf fans are!

Sami’s team recently contacted me asking if I could share a project that Sami is currently working on. It’s a music video for the track “Happiness” off his Salaam album. This is the email I received from Sami’s wonderful team: “Dear Walid, We are delighted to update you regarding our International artist Sami Yusuf’s massive Hollywood production. The coming music video is for “Happiness” song from Sami Yusuf’s latest album Salaam. Its about unity and bringing people together, which is the essence of the album. The upcoming music video is currently being filmed in USA, besides other several countries. The shooting took place in different areas and locations including Beverly Hills Hollywood, as well, It has been ten days of shooting so far, which took thousand miles traveling. We anticipate this project will be the largest production to date. and much more bigger than Mr. Yusuf previews works, such as Hasbi Rabi, for example. In addition, it gives us pleasure to announce that we have another music video to be filmed in the United Arab Emirates, “The Source” from Sami Yusuf’s latest album. We’ll keep you regularly updated on Mr. Yusuf coming projects. Thanks and Kind regards, Salaam.” Sami’s team included a couple behind-the-scenes pictures of the “Happiness” music video.
I hope you enjoyed this update on Sami Yusuf! I will be sharing his music video once it’s released. Follow me on Twitter and sign up for our newsletter below to receive updates!
