Lebanese singer features the dancer as her love interest in her first English language track
Casper Smart, the boyfriend of American superstar Jennifer Lopez, plays Haifa Wehbe’s love interest in her latest music video.
'Breathing You In' is the Lebanese singer's first English song.
Its video was produced by director Tarik Freitekh and was shot in Las Vegas.
It shows a red-haired Wehbe with Smart, who acts as an astronaut fixing a satellite in space.
In it, Wehbe also appears dancing amidst male performers wearing a see-through bodysuit and other revealing outfits.
Though the singer is known for her seductively themed music videos and movies, it didn’t stop her from becoming the object of negative feedback on social media.
In reply to the controversy, Wehbe posted a screenshot, on her Instagram, showing the number of views on her video. She captioned it with the phrase, "Hello success."
The single got almost six million views on Youtube so far.
She also posted another photo with the quote, "Throw me to the wolves and I'll return leading the pack."
Wehbe recently caused another debate when she posted selfies of herself in revealing outfits, this time on the set of her upcoming Ramadan series 'Mariam'.
The photos sparked social media outrage, with some calling them “too sexy for the holy month.”
Apparently, the show revolves around twins Mariam and Malak, and Wehbe plays both. Mariam lives in Egypt with her father and, after his death, the trauma causes her to lose her ability to speak. That’s when twin number two, Malak, comes from France to save her sister.
