Artist: Y.A.S.(Yasmine Hamdan and Mirwais Ahmadzaï)
Track: Get It Right.
The video for “Get It Right,” their first single, has the familiar nocturnal urban landscape of a Western pop video, full of club-hopping scenesters chattering on cellphones and throbbing on dark dance floors. But there are differences—young girls in hijab, towering mosques and the vibrant streets of Cairo.
