Aladeen Alhayek is a Palestinian American singer in Austin, Texas, United States. He is also an aspiring songwriter and has been making music professionally for many years. He was finding his passion for music at just 7 years old when he started recording drums, piano, and vocals on a tape recorder. Starting out just performing and recording Arabic music and faith-inspired music as a child, Aladeen was introduced to rap when he was 16 and gradually discovered other music genres. Falling in love with the sounds of his biggest inspiration Michael Jackson & Stevie Wonder, along with studying the rap styles varying from the Fresh Prince (Will Smith), Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, Nas, and many more and appreciating the various writing & lyrical styles, Aladeen fuses these contemporary pop styles along with his Arabic background and hip hop blended styles to create an eclectic and original sound.
His Debut EP “Blue Flame”, filled with pop vibes and positive attitudes, draws influence from Jackson, as well as influences from hip-hop, R&B, and even Jpop & K-Pop. The album features singing and rapping with a danceable beat in each track. 2 Official Music Videos, as well as the cover video for Bad, have been released to support ‘Blue Flame’ and an entirely Japanese edition has been separately released, with Aladeen hoping to reach a new fan base within Japan and Southeast Asia.
He has released many songs, and his songs on Youtube count their views in many thousands. Those stats are indeed impressive. But what really sets Aladeen Alhayek above all others is his music style and his story. In addition to being young and ambitious, he is also really good at what he does.
Today we are featuring his cover, “’Bad(33rd Anniversary Michael Jackson Cover)’” I hope you all enjoy the track.
