The Egyptian singer, actress and occasional model who rose to fame with her debut single “Enta Aref Leih” in 2003
The first music video of her debut single “Enta Aref Leih” (2003), was directed by Sherif Sabri and was a hit on most satellite music stations in the Middle East during the summer of 2003. Ruby was criticized by the media for appearing in the provocative costume of a belly dancer in the song’s music video. Despite this criticism, the successful single brought Ruby into the limelight.
Ruby’s second video was released in early 2004. The video was titled “Leih Beydary Kedah” (Why Is He Hiding His Feelings Like This?) and directed by Sherif Sabri; the video again also featured provocative scenes. Her third music video “El Gharaam (Koll Amma A’ollo Ah)” was accompanied by clips from Ruby’s movie, Saba’ Wara’aat Kotcheena (7 Playing Cards). The film was banned by the governments of some Arabic countries due to its usage of erotic themes.
Ruby was questioned in numerous interviews about her provocative style and suggestive moves, to which she responded that she does not consider herself to be a sex symbol. She was also rumoured to be married to her manager, Sherif Sabri, but they have both denied the rumour.
