Haifa Wehbe (هيفاء وهبي) is a Lebanese model, actress, and singer who rose to fame in the Arab world as runner up for Miss Lebanon and later through the release of her debut album Houwa El-Zaman (هو الزمن It is Time) which became a commercial success, in part thanks to the popularity of her first single "Agoul Ahwak" (أقول أهواك I Say I Love You).
Her second album Baddi Eesh (بدي عيش I Want to Live) was released in 2005 and lived up to expectations due to the success of its lead single "Ya Hayat Albi." Released after the assassination of Lebanese politician Rafik Hariri, the title single of the album is about "freedom, considered to be among the most basic of human rights". Her follow-up single became her biggest hit to date, "Ana Haifa" (أنا هيفاء I am Haifa), which became her novelty song.
